Well done for managing to stop the ativan. I believe ativan, xanax etc. can be very addictive. It is possible that you are just having withdrawal symptoms from coming off the ativan and your PVCs will go away again when your body adjusts. Are you still taking the atenolol (tenormin)?  Perhaps you could try a higher dose. I think 25mg per day is quite low. Good luck.
