In order to wean off of the lorazepam, you will have to decrease the dose very slowly. If you are currently taking one 1mg tablet at bedtime, you can decrease that to 0.5mg (half a tablet) at bedtime for a week or so. If that doesn’t work, you can try to cut the tablets into quarters and take 0.75mg. Just monitor how you feel to be sure you are not experiencing withdrawal symptoms. I would also discuss this with your prescribing physician as well.
