Suggest an alternative of Lorazepam

I am currently taking Lorazepam, originally prescribed for sleep... I am trying to wean off the Lorazepam, but find myself feeling more anxious... Is there any other medication you can recommend to replace Lorazepam as I have heard it is anticholinergic... Is it safe to go cold turkey and stop using the medication??? I also take Lunesta...

Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic!
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
You can try alternatives like zolpidem which are free of side effects and it’s not anticholinergic.
Wishing you good health
