I’ve been taking Ativan for 15 years without an issue , mostly for insomnia & only at night . About 6 months ago I began experiencing terrible side effects in the morning.Groggy , brain fog & pressure headaches . I drink coffee & try to exercise. The pressure headaches only increase not decrease . My only relief is having a few drinks & “ sleeping it off “. I can’t continue this way . I take 1 mg ! Not a lot . My tolerance has gone down not up. Switching anxiety drugs does not help. I know to need to get off these drugs though at 2 or 3 in the morning I get frustrated at not sleeping & give in again. Anyone else have these issues ?
