Ativan tolerance?

I read somewhere online that ativan is a very safe med. To build up tolerance you need to take it regularly for at least 4 months. If you take it a few times a week (I am guessing few = 2-3 times) then it is very unlikely you will EVER build up tolerance.

So far this has been true for me. I have been taking 2-3mg, 2-3 times (usually 2) a week for 6 weeks. Today, I took a 0.5mg and it zonked me out pretty good.

If it's true that you can avoid building up tolerance by taking <3 times a week, that would be

Re: Ativan tolerance?

taking it 3 times a week or less so lessen any tolerance

Re: Ativan tolerance?

Ativan is no different than any other benzo when it comes to tolerance. If you take ANY benzo daily for 2 weeks, you have a 70% chance of experiencing a withdrawal syndrome when trying to stop.
