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,...

Possible New Purepac Lorazepam
I have a bottle of Purepac Lorazepams as prescribed, but half of the pills have the usual "Purepac R" followed by 59 and the others have a strange moon-like symbol followed by the number 59. Has anyone ever seen these before? ## I do believe this is a new one with a change to the logo, because while it isn't listed in the prescription drug databases yet, there have been several other posts about it recently. Learn more Lorazepam details here. If you're in doubt as to what it is, then I'd suggest asking your pharmacist to double check for you. Has anyone else received these tablets? ## Not that I know of, but like I said, I couldn't even find em on the net yet. ## yes i got a refill on my lorazepam and this time they have the crescent and 59 on one side. Why doesn...

small white pill half moon over 59 other side scored
please help: my husband has been sick, migraines, vomiting and stumbling, disoriented. I suspected maybe he mixed some of his prescriptions. I was checking his pill box and found these small white pills with half or crescent shape moons over the number 59. The other side of the pills are scored. What are they? I couldn't find anything online. ## The crescent shape moon which you are talking about sounds a lot like the Actavis logo to me. From what I am able to see, they also have a white pill with a score mark on one side, and their logo above 59 on the other [1]. That is their Lorazepam 1mg. Is that what your husband has a prescription for? The picture on the manufacturer's site does look a bit different than a crescent moon, but if you look at their logo at the top left you wi...

My son was given a small round purple pill in hospital tonight. I was told it was 2 mg of Lorazapam. I can't find a picture of any 2 Mg Lorazapam that are small round and purple? My son is autistic and is in a catatonic -like condition due to high levels of anxiety recently. Help!

Lorazapam, supposedly, X on one side Small kind of scored design on other side. It is a round white pill. ## Hello, Dahlia! How are you? That doesn't sound like any U.S. Lorazepam tablet that I'm familiar wit and I just scrolled through several pages of Lorazepam images and didn't find anything that matches this description. Lorazepam is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Does anyone recognize this tablet? Can you please post back and give a better description of that design? It might help someone to recognize it.

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...
