Lorazepam Overview

Lorazepam (trademarked as Ativan or Orfidal) is a high-potency, intermediate-duration, 3-hydroxy benzodiazepine drug, often used to treat anxiety disorders.[4] Lorazepam has all six intrinsic benzodiazepine effects: anxiolysis, anterograde amnesia, sedation/hypnosis, anti-seizure, antiemesis (anti-nausea/vomiting) and muscle relaxation.[5][6] Lorazepam is used for the short-term treatment of anxiety, insomnia, acute seizures including status epilepticus, and sedation of hospitalized patients,...

LOOKING FOR LORAZEPAM THAT IS EXACTLY LIKE WATSON BRAND
I've been taking Watson Pharmaceuticals Lorazepam and it worked great. Apparently, Actavis just took over Watson, and Watson no longer exists. I'm looking for another bran of Lorazepam that has the same Active & Inactive ingredients as the Watson brand, however, I can't locate the info on line and my pharmacy won't help me. Does anyone know what other manufacturer carries Lorazepam that is exactly the same as the Watson brand. Actavis and Sandoz manufacturer's Lorazepam does not work. ## Well, you're pharmacy won't help, because if the active ingredient is the same, they are considered the same. The inactive ingredients are called such for a reason, they don't affect the drug. How long have you been taking your current dose? It is possible that you...

ranbaxy lorazepam
I was taking Ranbaxy for almost 3 years and was just fine. No anxiety and no side effects. Then about a month and a half ago I started getting anxiety. Found out CVS changed to Mylan brand. I found I could get one more month's supply of Ranbaxy but at the two mg strength. Was a problem with dosage amount because I had to quarter the tablets. They cut in half nicely but the quartering was always unequal. I read this board and knew to stay away from Mylan, Watson and Santos (sp?) So I called around to the mom and pop pharmacies and found one that carried Excellium. I had read very little about Excellium on the forum but the pharmacist said he had been selling it for 10 years and never had a complaint. Scared to death, I transferred my two remaining refills to this place. I've been...

Substitute for ranbaxy lorazepam
I have been taking Ranbaxy Lorazapam for more than 10 years. Now that is no longer available I have tried Watson & Qualitest manufacturers. I am having severe muscle tightening, headaches and loud ringing in my ears. Can someone please suggest something similar to the Ranbaxy? Even if it is another similar generic drug? Clearly there is something different in the other manufacturers generic lorazapam that is causing so many problems. ## Hello, Patti! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. The best thing to do may be to ask your doctor to write the prescription as 'brand medically necessary', if your insurance will cover it and try that, so you can avoid the generics. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side e...

Sandoz Ativan
I switched pharmacies and was given Sandoz Ativan, I have been having a terrible time- it is like it is creating more anxiety. I switched back to my old pharmacy and am counting the days until I get back to the Milan manufacturer. It has been a horrid 2 weeks. Melatonin helps a great deal with sleep. I started off with Milan and had been on that for 2 years with no problems, I wonder if your body resists another generic brand and you have to adjust. All I know if Milan is what I need and I always get the same manufacturers for all my meds since 12 years ago from CVS- they are very consistent. Be very careful if you switch pharmacies, I learned that all generics are NOT THE SAME. ## Just found this out: Purepac/Activis was bought out by Watson in 2012. In October the FTC made Watson/Pure...

Been on Sandoz mfr. lorazepam for 10 years; no problems; no need to increase dose. Sandoz stopped mfr. Now, can only get these generic's & Actavis. Having lots of troubles getting results; either nothing or zonked. Anyone else w/any experience which mfr. is closer to Sandoz (since FDA approves up to 2% differences in generics). Thank you. ## Hello!

lorazepam 2mg mfr oualitest
WOULD LIKE THE MARKINGS, COLOR AND SIZE lorazepam 2mg mfr oualitest ## I found a white pill 5-sided with the markings of two triangular shapes pointing toward each other on one side and the other side numbers are 3760. I want to know what this is. ## Hello, Sal! How are you? That tablet should be round, white with a stylized V on one side and the numbers 4009 on the opposite. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Patricia, that tablet contains 20mgs of Lisinopril, which is an ACE inhibitor that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

lorazepam extended release .05mg
How can you tell if a .05 mg of larazepam is extended release vs. non extended release? ## Hi Anita, Based on my research, Lorazepam is not available in extended-release form so you shouldn't have anything to worry about in that regard. :) Although, in the event that something might be extended release, you could always just look up the imprint on the tablet to determine those details. (That is of course provided that you obtained it from a legitimate pharmacy and has a marking for identification?). I hope this helps!
