Danger in quitting lorazepam cold turkey?
Posted 21 April 2006 - 01:15 PM
I stopped 2 days ago, and I feel really strange. I have this sensation in my head like I've just been punched in the forehead. Also, I keep getting headaches.
I feel really anxious/paranoid too.
I'm not taking any other medications except for 5-HTP and SJW.
Am I screwing myself over permanently?

Oh, and I keep smelling something. It's kind of a decaying flesh smell, I can't really describe it.

Start taking your dose again as soon as you read this. If you want to get off lorazepam it has to be done gradually and preferably under a doctors care. They can give you a tapering schedule.
I can not stress enough how bad of an idea it is to give up benzos suddenly. People have actually died because of this. Though it is extremely rare it can happen.

My doctor won't let me go off the lorazepam, though, and I'm afraid it's making my DP worse.
