Well, those sound awful. I hope you call your dr tomorrow and he or she can help you with some advice or other med in the meantime.

I abused Benzo's and used to knock myself out. But I couldn't function like that. My pdoc eventually had me go to a hospital to go through the withdrawal process and have me another drug for a few days to counter the withdrawal effects. I felt terrible.

Ativan has also had terrible effects for me. I forgot entire days and crashed my car on very low doses.
