Hi phoenix52 :hug: and Welcome to Benzobuddies


We are happy to have you here,.  You'll find plenty of information and support here, feel free to check out the forum.  Our members have gone through all aspects of withdrawal, and will share their experiences.  Please feel free to post questions so members can respond.


I am glad you are familiar with ashtons manual, it’s a great resource about benzodiazepines. Here is a link to the manual: Professor Ashtons Manual  Ashton recommends reducing between 5 - 10% every 10/14 days, many of us need to taper much slower, whatever feels comfortable.


Here are a few links to some resources:

Welcome phoenix52,


Good work getting down to 1 mg. I too am tapering off Ativan.  You have come to the right place for support and knowledge on this process. Many are here to help.


magrita shared the link below to the  Ativan Taper Support Thread.  Many of us are tapering Ativan and the thread is a great place to share info specific to tapering A. It's a wonderful supportive group.


You already have made some progress.  Hang in there.  You can do this.
