I don't abuse drugs; however, I used to take Ativan often to help me sleep and deal with some anxiety. I took it often, once a week, sometimes three times when I could not sleep at all (I have cystitis that flares up sometimes, and there is no antibiotics for that unfortunately). Anyway, the last time I took it was Christmas Eve so I could sleep since I would be visiting family the next day and I did not want to bee too tired. I have not taken any since, and the next time I will take it will be January 31st since I have an appointment that day. I am waiting to take it then since I want my tolerance to go down a bit since I have been finding the drug to not be effective. Because it will be 39 days without taking it, will my tolerance go down enough for it to work? I know that it takes a while for your tolerance to go down, but will my tolerance decrease and not be as high so it will work if I wait until January 31st to take it? I hope my question is clear.
