I don't quite know what to say...benzo tapering and withdrawal can be rough, and I think it can be worse with Ativan and Xanax, because they have shorter half lives. I don't think Ativan tapers are as bad as xanax tapers, so that's a good thing.

I wanna say that 3mgs Ativan is around 1.5mgs/Klonopin, or 30mgs/Valium (this from an online table...take it w/ a grain of salt). That falls well within the "normal" range for benzo dosage. Your doc sounds fairly cautious.

Have you ever been on Valium? I've read that Valium is often a good choice for long term use, and easier to taper when/if you decide to go off.
