Please help Lorazepam

I'm trying to get off, weaning slowly.  Used my last half pill the Sept 28th.  Ok yesterday.  Heart racing all day today, took lorazepam.  My question:  Suggestions for getting off?  Only been on it for month & half, didn't know about how addictive.  Please help.

Want my life back.

The best method to get off a benzodiazepine is to do a cross-tapering. You lower the lorazepam and slowly introduce diazepam (which is long acting) under the supervision of your doctor.
