You should be fine, kristenbbb1. It is fairly hard to fatally OD on benzodiazepines alone. Other drugs are usually involved, occasionally another serious medical condition.

The main danger is that the drug may suppress the breathing reflex.

Ativan has a short half life so the potential danger is of limited duration, Only a couple of hours.

Best wishes
