Lorazepam Overview

Lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan among others, is a benzodiazepine medication.[2] It is used to treat anxiety disorders, trouble sleeping, active seizures including status epilepticus, for surgery to interfere with memory formation, sedate those who are being mechanically ventilated, alcohol withdrawal, and chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting.[2][6] While it can be used for severe agitation, midazolam is usually preferred.

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...

Hello, I noticed that Sandoz is manufacturing Lorazepam again.. (the has stopeed for 2-3 years now). I am wondering if anyone has tried them? How do you rate them? Do they make you sleepy? Do they help with your anxiety?? Any details would be great.. Thank you.. p.s. (I used to take them before Sandoz had stopped making them for years and they had helped me worderfully. Wondering if they are made the same now.) ## Hi Bessy, As I do not have any experience with Lorazepam, I am unfit to answer your question as accurately as I would like to. I have attached a link to one of the new Lorazepam threads down below so that you can speak with others on the site about the new version and their experiences.

LOOKING FOR LORAZEPAM THAT IS EXACTLY LIKE WATSON BRAND
32 Replies RSS
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...

Other side has as 190 or 198 can't tell if it's 190 or 198 and sz on the same side.what pill is this? Can you help me? ## Hello, Diane! How are you?

LEXAPRRO ## Sorry, which are you asking about, Lorazepam or Lexapro? They are not the same drug. ## I take lorazepam sporadically for anxiety. I take 2 1 mg a day for 3 days then dont take them for a week, then 1 a day for 3 days, then none for a few weeks. Then 2 a day, then 1 here and there. It's not the ideal scene. It's a bit of a rollercoaster but it allows me to function fairly well and i can stop them cold turkey for a few months with NO WITHDRAWAL due to the way i take them. I have been doing this for 7 yrs with no addiction or withdrawal and i always get the same effect without ever having to increase my dosage also due to the way i take them. Benzo management is not complicated. Don't let the drug overtake you. There is a safe manageable way to do it. A little comm...

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!

Lori 2 Lorazepam
20 Replies RSS
Has anybody taken this medicine which is a generic for Ativan manufactured in India? ## The drug brand named Lori (2 mg) is said to be manufactured by Cyril Pharmaceuticals. Just to clear up any confusion, it's not a generic for Ativan; just another brand name. Ativan is also a brand name. Lorazepam is the generic name. I personally haven't tried this brand, but others here on the site have mentioned that it is very weak in comparison to the US counterpart. There's nothing inherently wrong with purchasing meds from India, but from the reviews I've read, many people are complaining about the potency and overall efficacy not being up to par with US drugs. Would you agree with that? You can learn more about this drug on the page for Lorazepam Details I hope this helps! ## I...

Lorazepam side effects
1 Reply RSS
I read that there are many side effects of Lorazepam. Anyone know of legal cases against this drug? I've heard it's for short term use and getting off it is dangerous and may cause suicidal thoughts. ## Hello, Peggy! How are you? Unfortunately, when it comes to the normal side effects, as long as they have been disclosed and are available for you to discover, there are no legal grounds to take action. Suits are usually only considered valid, when the manufacturer has hidden information about possible side effects, long-term effects and etc. Your taking the medication is considered as you having accepted the risk. I know that doesn't help you, I'm just letting you know how the law currently works. The FDA does warn that this medication carries the risk of being habit form...
