This is a fairly unknown fact of Benzo's like Xanax and Ativan. It is horrible when it hits you. You can't think, you feel physically sick, emotionally drained. I was on Ativan @ 1 mg 2xdaily. My Doctor and I decided I could go up to ether 2mg x 2 daily or 1.5 2 x Daily. So he gave me enough to do both and I tried 4 mg a day. 2 1mg in the mourning and 2 1mg at night. After having side effects that told me it was too much. I began to bring my dose down. I'm fine when I take whatever dose I take in the mourning until about 5pm then here comes the withdrawal symptoms and there awful to say the least. I try and holdout until 9:30 or 10pm but I'm usually extremely sick by this point.

D**n this is rough I don't know how I'll make it?:(
