Hi what2do:


Yes feeling "brain dead" is a common experience reported on the boards here.  It's affectionately called cog fog.  It will go away with time, but it can take quite a while.  How are you doing with your taper?  Have you thought about discussing with your doctor switching everything over to Valium?  It has a longer short life than Ativan.

Im not doing good with my doc. He seems to hate ashton. I basically started tapering on my own with some valium I already had (he had a total FIT!) Its been almost 3 weeks and ive been ok except the last 3 days got SUPER anxiety and had to take ativan ( I dont know how hes going to react, Im afraid he"ll put me in a hospital.(He has threatened me with it before,0 Ive been there and didnt like it at all but am so desperate to get off this stuff I dont know what to do. going to try to get back on the taper today.

oh yeah,  had to keep the 2 mg ativan for now because absolutely no sleep without it.


My mind seems very fragile at this time and im pretty isolated. Any and all advise appreciated.
