    How long does Ativan stay in your body after you've stopped taking it, and when do the sypmptoms of withdrawal go away?

    Thank you for your question and welcome to AnxietyConnection.com.


    I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.


    Because everyone reacts differently, it would be impossible to say exactly how long this medication will stay in your system. It is suggested that this medication be stopped slowly and under the supervision of a doctor. Have you talked with your doctor about stopping this medication? If not, I would suggest you speak with him or her about the best way to wean yourself off the medication.


    Although Ativan is not an antidepressant, the following post might provide some insight into withdrawal from medications:
