Success substituting Ativan with Valium?


Recommended Posts

Who had had success substituting Valium fir Ativan?

Did you follow Dr Ashton’s schedule exactly?

I’m trying to decide if I want to try substituting or do direct taper from Ativan.

I am taking 0.5 mg Ativan morning and bedtime and 0.25 mg middle of day.


Substitution rate would be 5 mg Valium for the morning and bedtime doses and 2.5 mg Valium for middle of day.  I do understand Ashton schedule of switching out doses gradually .


I am seeing new doc next week and want to have all my information ready . I’m very nervous about this but know I must do it!, I.m just not sure which method will be best.
