Will ativan help with opiate withdrawal?
Asked: 2017-11-11 22:07:50
I’m exploring ways to come off pain meds that are opiate-based and someone mentioned that Ativan would be a lifesaver. Is that the case?

No, I wouldn’t agree. Ativan is used for alcohol withdrawal sometimes but it’s not a cure-all. It can have bad reactions with opiates so I’d be careful.

Yep, it’s a benzo so it will help with the absolute terror you feel and also take away muscle aches and pains, including easing restless leg syndrome. Just make sure the opiates are out of system before you take any.
