Curious as to what everyone does, especially those who dose once and a night

I take Ativan too.  Its a short term med but I like it cuz it doesn't process through liver and I am used to it.  I dose 4 times a day.  Builder devised a great taper plan for me and I am so grateful!!!!

As a rule just before bedtime. Recently I' ve been taking 1 mg at bedtime. I wake up about 2 hours later and take the remaining 2,5 mg. Helps me stay asleep till later in the night. Doesn't always work, though. Last night I didn't take anything before bedtime, but couldn't get to sleep. Took the whole 3,5 mg Diazepam and slept until 6. Usually it's around 4 am. So, that was a pleasant surprise. After waking up I cannot get back to sleep and start to have "the shakes" . After being on my feet for a few minutes,  that stops once I' m back in bed.
