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,...

round pink scored one side letter k inside triangle on other
Small pink round with letter k inside a triangle one side and scored on other ## I'm sorry, but so far I haven't been able to find anything that matches this in any of the prescription drug databases that I've checked. This leads me to believe that it's most likely some type of over the counter product. Where did you find it? Some products are regional, so knowing a general location may help to narrow it down. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## I would never say for certain, but Im betting it is not only a foreign, (south american pharm-manufacturer) and fits with Ativan 2 mg descriptor. I have seen it before. But the color can change from time to time. Is this pill scored, one side, round, small, with a triangle and a K inside the triangle? How would you describ...

round yellow pill, scored on back, K inside triangle on front side. Any clue?
round yellow pill, scored on back, K inside triangle on front side. Any clue? ## This is 2mg lorazepam manufactured by Karnel Labs in Hondorus. Decent stuff. ## How can you be sure? do you have a link to a picture of the pill online? thanks ## 5mg valium ## Sre you sure these are diazepam i know they come from thailand if that helps? ## Hey are you sure that these round, yellow ones w/ the K inside the triangle is deff a 2mg Lorazepam? And how do you know if I may ask? Cause I cannot find info about it anywhere... ## YOU MAY THANK YOUR USA CENSORSHIP PROGRAMMING FOR THAT!!! They do not lead you easily, to secure 90 days of imported medications for which you hold a valid prescription. In THIS way, I have watched BBro kill off the solid old google searches for foreign meds, and ROUTE you ...

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...

Watson vs. Mylan generic lorazepam side effects.
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! I have been getting 90 days supplies of Lorazepam 1MG from SANDOZ....my new Rx just came and it's from ACTAVIS.....it does not work or relieve any anxiety at all....I might as well take a placebo...it does not work at all....I took 2 pills...nothing and then 1hour later took 2 more....before with the other brand...I would probably be asleep....but,nothing with this new brand.....I do not know what to do about this....... ## I have...

What do I do now?
I have severe hypertension. I am 76 yrs old. I am allergic to most BP medicine, with horrible side effects. I am on clonidine three times a day with a 1 mg lorazepam. It was working well until my pharmacy changed manufacturers. I was getting Sandoz. Since I have had Qualitest and Watson generic and they do absolutly nothing, even if I take 3 at a time. I have called all around and nobody sells Sandoz. My insurance will not pay for the real thing and 60 pills cost 700.00 dollars. How can I get Sandoz again ? ## Hello, Caroline! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Since the Lorazepam is a controlled substance that is commonly abused, you most likely didn't get an honest answer from the pharmacies that you called. They have no way of knowing if th...

Sandoz Lorazepam
I have been trying to get Sandoz Lorazepam, and finally after three months I found a drugstore that actually cares about people, Bath Drugstore in Bath, Pa. they are the best. They didn't tell me that they didn't carry Sandoz, they told me ..Tell us what you need and we will order it for you..GOD BLESS THEM..... ## Hi Marjorie, Even though it took some time, I'm happy to hear that you were able to get your prescription filled from a reliable pharmacy. It seems like finding one like that is considered to be somewhat rare now-a-days, especially with all the strict regulations that have been put in place by the DEA over the past few years. I would encourage you to stay with them as long as you're able to. Not many others out there seem to have it together enough to make tho...

Lorazepam by ranbaxy
Does sun pharma carry 1mg lorazepam made by ranbaxy or another maker I have been taking the ranbaxy brand for 20 yrs and doing well by it now I can't get it anymore and the ones I can get are making me sick ( headaches nausea etc) any answers would be appreciated. When will ranbaxy brand be available again ## Hello, Carolyn! How are you? It isn't that one isn't available, but that your pharmacy was able to get the other generic cheaper, when they needed to restock their supply. However, you can ask them about ordering the other one in for you. This medication 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? ## Did you find a pharmacy to sell 1 mg tabs of Ranbaxy...

ranbaxy generic lorazepam
Have been using Lorazepam by Ranbaxy for years, but is no longer available from the Giant Food Store Pharmacy near Manassas, Virginia.

Lorazepam made by Sandoz who carries it I have been put on Watson and do not feel well
I was told that Sandoz was not available, must there must be some pharmacy that carries it... ## good luck, i think once you find it you will be very disappointed, the sandoz brand is "suppose to be" the old activus lorazapam but after being a user of the activus brand for over ten years i can tell you that sandoz has watered down the product until it is worthless, if you read the other comments made here you will see that not one person including myself can state that this product works, actually it gave me insomnia, imagine that, what is suppose to help you sleep actually keeps you awake, check out the other comment sections on lorazapam on this site, it may help you find something that works. ## I have taken Sandoz Lorazepam for awhile and have never had a problem, since I am...
