Withdrawal from Ativan (lorazepam), like other benzodiazepines, can cause a range of symptoms, including physical, psychological, and neurological symptoms. While dizziness is a common physical symptom of Ativan withdrawal, neuropathy (nerve damage) is not typically associated with benzodiazepine withdrawal. However, some people may experience a tingling or “pins and needles” sensation in their limbs or other parts of their body during withdrawal, which can be a form of paresthesia (abnormal nerve sensation). If you are experiencing any concerning symptoms during Ativan withdrawal, it is important to seek medical advice.
