Welcome to the site.
Well you see it is very important to have a strategy while weaning off ativan so that there is no withdrawal symptoms.
-- start with 0.5 mg twice a day x 10 days
-- Then 0.25 mg twice a day x 1 week
-- Then 0.25 mg once a day x 1 week
-- Then 0.25 mg every alternate day x 10 days
-- Then stop the drug completely.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best.

What you experience as anxiety and panic just before your periods is called as Premenstrual syndrome and yes it could be controlled with the use of current medications one of which is ativan and yes it is hormonal in origin. Using ativan is going to help you ease your premenstrual anxiety.
I hope this sums it up for you.
Wish you speedy recovery.
