Librium withdrawal er doc gave ativan please help

Today 13:38
Hi. In short the past 6 weeks I have been in minor librium withdrawal. My addiction psychologist gave me baclofen for sleep/anxiety - all other symptoms were much better. I had a bad reaction to the baclofen and ended up in er with vitals through the roof. Told er doc I can't have benzos as am still withdrawing slightly from librium. He said medically he has to give me ativan injection given vitals. So he gave me two shots over 7 hours there

Of course I felt better. Given my worry about a symptom flare up er doc gave me 10 1mg ativan to use to taper if I got a flare up. Yesterday was second day from hospital and sure enough have flared up. My addiction doc agreed with er doc and said a 10 pill taper is not going to set me back

I took one last night but it did nothing am stopping. Don't feel worse today but still feel about 2 weeks back on my recovery. Will this fix quick or did I really prolong my healing? Thank you
