Lorazepam Overview

Lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan among others, is a benzodiazepine medication often used to treat anxiety disorders.[5] Lorazepam reduces anxiety, interferes with new memory formation, reduces agitation, induces sleep, treats seizures, treats nausea and vomiting, and relaxes muscles.[6][7] Lorazepam is used for the short-term treatment of anxiety, trouble sleeping, acute seizures including status epilepticus, sedation of people in hospital, as well as sedation of aggressive patient...

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!

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

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...

pain pill Watson 333
2 Replies RSS
White oblong Watson 333 on one side and a line on the other. ## What strenght is this?Watson 333 ## @Edward, The only pill I found with a marking of Watson 333 is a 1mg Lorazepam tablet, prescribed for anxiety disorders. It's also round, not oblong in shape. However there are some pain pills that are white and oblong, including Watson 388 (Hydrocodone 2.5mg + Acetaminophen 500mg) as well as Watson 853 (Hydrocodone bitartrate 10mg + Acetaminophen 325mg). Is there any chance you may have misinterpreted the imprint based on its physical condition? Hope this helps!

act and qua for lorazepam
1 Reply RSS
What is the difference between lorazepam 2mg tab qua and lorazepam 2mg tab act? ## Hello, Annette! How are you? Those are abbreviations for the manufacturers, Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and Actavis, respectively. Since this is a generic, it is manufactured by several different companies to help create market competition and try to keep prices down. The FDA warns that this medication may carry 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?

LOOKING FOR LORAZEPAM THAT IS EXACTLY LIKE WATSON BRAND
29 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...

Small White pill with V on one side and 4007 on the other side and not scored ## Hello, Jules! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 0.5mgs of Lorazepam, which is a benzodiazepine that's commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with?

ZONIVAN 2 (lorazepam)
2 Replies RSS
has anyone tried ZONIVAN 2 , a white round pill with a score only on one side. it comes in a 10pac blister pac I cannot find the brand name on the net. It says it is manufactured by Elite Pharma private limited. ## Hi don, According to Elite Pharma's product page (here), I can only assume that "ZONIVAN" is a fictitious name that was made up to help get it off the shelf. They only list 1 brand of Lorazepam by the name of "LORALITE"; that's reportedly available in 1-2mg dosage forms. I also made an effort to search for the name Zonivan online, and found no specific details relating to it AT ALL. This leads me to believe that it's probably a counterfeit of some sort. However, if anyone else feels differently after taking it, please post back with additional info...
