    Default Tapering off of Lorazepam

    Hi all. I'm a combat vet with ptsd, and was prescribed lorazepam 1mg twice a day. I've been taking it for about 10 months, and it's no longer helping with panic/anxiety, and I want to taper off of it. I currently take 1mg in the morning and 1 mg in the afternoon.

    I'd like some feedback on my plan of tapering off of this med.

    My plan is to cut my daily dosage by .5mg every two weeks until I have weaned myself off of it. So my first cut would be to drop down to .75mg in morning and .75 in the afternoon for two weeks, then cut it again by .5mg, so on and so on, until I'm off of it completely.

    I don't want to use any other drugs.

    Does this sound like a reasonable way to wean myself off of this stuff?

    Thanks in advance.
