Lorazepam on a shorter course few weeks is good drug, on a longer run is very harmful. It can produce early dementia, withdrawal seizures, personality changes, brain shrinkage. But you cannot stop suddenly. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person, it s dose has to be tapered and substitutes given.
