Question: I am a 66 year old woman, with hypertension
, complicated by anxiety
. Almost 18 years ago, I was prescribed Ativan
, which worked more quickly, and better, to bring my BP down, in addition to Quinapril
. At times I took 2 mg. per day. I have worked it down to .05 mg., 75% less. I have been taking the .05 mg. for about a year now. My prescription refill request was not yet taken care of by the medical practice I go to. We are in the midst of a big snowstorm, the medical office closed early today, and I have had no medication yesterday or today. Is a sudden withdrawal of this small dose dangerous?
