How to get off of Restoril & Ativan?


Recommended Posts

Anybody got any ideas on how to get off this shit? I have been on both for awhile for sleep. 30mg Restoril and 2mg of Ativan. But I will need something else in it's place. I am trying to talk to my Pdoc to get me off some of these drugs. I especially want off Effexor.

Any shared experience would be greatly appreciated.

There's a thread pinned to this board (it's the last one in the "pinned" section - sorry too lazy/tired to create a link) on how to discontinue benzos. If I remember correctly, there's lots of good discusion there. I'm not familiar with Restoril... heard of it, but not sure what class it's in (sorry).

In terms of alternative treatment for insomnia, I'd ask your doctor about the non-benzo hypnotics (Ambien, Sonata, Lunesta, etc.). Benzos really are a poor treatment option for insomnia. I'm also liking Rozerom... newly FDA approved, non-scheduled, non-narcotic, non-benzo. New class of it's own.
