How much lorazapam?

I was taking lorazapam 3 times a day and it was a roller-coaster of withdrawals followed by not getting any enjoyment out of anything.

You will build a tolerance to it and when you do that’s when withdrawals start. Withdrawals made me angry irritable tired until my next dose. Then I’d feel fine for an hour or two and it would start all over

i was given 2 mg for a week then after 1 mg next weel …i will quit it after one month and add ssri anti depressant… what do you think…

I haven’t been on chlorpromazine for at least fifteen years. I really strugged with the side-effects. Lots of shaking and cramping. Even had difficulty speaking at the higher doses. Very sedating and the usual weight gain.
