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 including the ability to: reduce anxiety, interfere with new memory formation, reduce agitation/induce sleep, treat seizures, treat nausea and vomiting, and relax muscles.[5][6] Lorazepam is used for the short-term treatment of anxiety, insomnia, acute seizures including status epi...

lorazepam 2mg with a fancy v on one side and 4009 on the other. about twice as large as previously prescribed tablets. ## Hello, Dale! How are you? These tablets are manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, formerly Vintage, which explains the V logo. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine that is 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

generic lorazepam (ativan)
1 Reply RSS
Since all the pharmaceutical companies buy & sell companies regularly and the pharmacies switch to the cheapest generics they can find monthly, has anyone found in the year 2015, a generic Ativan/Lorazepam that is of good quality? I only take it as needed and do not take daily. Just before Christmas I filled a script for generic Ativan and did not feel that it worked anymore than drinking a glass of water. The imprint is Watson, 241/1, white, round. My health insurance will pay for generic only. I am allowed to pay a higher copay in order to get the Brand medication if I wanted but Brand gets costly. However, since I do not take it daily, I'd be willing to pay the extra cost to know when I need it, it will work well. If anyone in 2015 has found a generic Lorazepam that works wel...

Ranbaxy Lorazepam brand name
1 Reply RSS
I found out Lorazepam 1mg made by Ranbaxy is not sold any more. Is it available in mexico? And will it come back? ## Hi Liza, From what I've researched, generic Lorazepam by Ranbaxy is not listed as being available in Mexico. However I did stumble upon a couple brand names that are: Lozam and Sinestron. Perhaps either of those would make for a suitable alternative? I have not tried Lorazepam myself so this is only speculation. Apparently the FDA has also had several restrictions placed on Ranbaxy's products (within the last year that are still in effect), preventing them from importing drugs from their overseas facilities into the US. Ranbaxy doesn't list contact information online either (if they do it's not easy to find), which could make getting ahold of them rather d...

ic lorazepam 0 5 mg

does product help with anxiety ## @buckedon1, The answer to your question is yes - Lorazepam is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, which are commonly prescribed for treating anxiety, depression, and insomnia. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Lorazepam Details I for one don't think the benefits of drugs like Lorazepam outweigh the possible sides and withdrawal symptoms associated with long term or frequent use. But I think it's also important to remember that not everyone responds to these types of medications in the same way...whereas in some cases, certain individuals may find that Lorazepam works better or worse than various other treatment modalities. Hope this helps!

I have been taking lorazepam with the #063, and a couple of mos. ago they said they don't have them or can't get them anymore. they tried to give me another pill saying it is the same, 2mg but it is not the same. I have a lot of anxiety for the pain I have all over my body. Arthritis. I am 77 and can you help me by letting me know where I can get this certain pill? I can't sleep at night because these other Lorazepam don't work for me...thank you..I use safeway pharmacy. ## Hi margie, Sorry to hear about your situation. I think a good way to go about this would probably be to ask your doctor to specify a particular manufacturer's version of Lorazepam (such as Actavis), directly on the prescription so pharmacists will know which brand to have in stock or order for you...
