I posted in this forum in 2008 about trying to quit lorazepam. Well, 3 years later I’m still taking it every night. And now I’m beginning to take it once in awhile during the day. I need to quit taking this and know that tapering is the only way. I have about 30 pills left and I take 2 per night. I’m going to reduce to 1 1/2 per night for a few nights, then 1 pill for a few nights then 1/2 until gone. I’ve read about these types of medications causing permanent brain changes and believe that this has happened to me. I have a chronic medical condition and no longer know if it’s my disease or the pills that are causing my symptoms but my life has changed so much for the worse in the last year.
