That bring said, I was given benzodiazipines as part of my inpatient detox protocol under 24-hour medical supervision, and yea, I was hella foggy.
The doctor I am seeing is part of my counselling sessions. I am following an outpatient detox/recovery plan and I was totally honest with my councellor and doctor from day 1. They said that it was totally normal to use Ativan for withdrawal, as i was worried about taking them, and they have given me a plan of when i should take them and reduce gradually. My last day on ativan is tomorrow where i will just take half pill b bed time. .5 mg

Its the only thing that helps with the anxiety at thee moment

Thanks
