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. It is also used, along with other treatments, for acut...

Hi, I've been taking lorazepam 0.5 mg once a day for 16yrs. Now my doctor wants me to wean off it, but I'm having a hard time. ## What tapering/weaning method have you been using? Generally, the modern preferred method is to gradually reduce the dose, while spacing doses further and further apart. Stopping too abruptly may create the risk of seizures, according to FDA reports. Are you on any other medications? ## David, I'm sorry to hear about your struggle. Unfortunately it has become a very common complaint with the tightening Restrictions imposed on this class of drug. Although your dose is minimal the length of time will require a very deliberate titration and taper schedule. I would suggest you research the Weismann method for benzodiazepine detoxification. I know from ...

Inactive ingredients of Qualitest or Leading Pharma Lorazepam
Post a Reply
What are the inactive ingredients of Qualitest lorazepam or Leading Pharma lorazepam? Does anybody know? It seems that its formula might have been changed because I feel 1mg is less effect than before or does not work. I used to take Ativan 1mg before abroad and one month from Kaiser in the U.S. but they gave me refill as generic lorazepam (Qualitest). I felt 50-60% effectiveness compared to Ativan(brand lorazepam). I can't take Watson lorazepam as it does not work for me causing side effects (rapid heart beats, sweating, anxiety, dehydration). Qualitest has less side effect (less dehydrated than Ativan) I did not have physical dependence on Ativan for long time and quit too. But this generic lorazepam is getting less effective over a few months. Also my pharmacy had changed Qualite...

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...

is bencoprim the same as lorazepam
1 Reply RSS
Is bencoprim the same as lorazepam? My Tucson doctor gave me a prescription for lorazepam 16 yrs ago and i went to Nogales, Mexico and asked for lorazepam and they sold me bencoprim and said it was the same as lorazepam. Is this correct? ## Hello, Jayne! How are you? Actually no, Bencoprim is listed as containing Cyclobenzaprine, which is a muscle relaxant, better know under the U.S. trade name Flexeril. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Lori 2 Lorazepam
29 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...

Sandoz Ativan
128 Replies RSS
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...

SANDOZ LORAZEPAM 1mg. HAS ANYONE TRIED THE NEW VERSION??
13 Replies RSS
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.

zzzquil and lorazepam?
2 Replies RSS
Can I take 1mg Lorazepam and the zzzquil? ## Hello, Bill! How are you? Unless your doctor has said that it's okay for you to do so, I'd suggest sticking with just one or the other. Both the Lorazepam and the Diphenhydramine in the ZzzQuil can cause depression of the central nervous system, so combining them could be dangerous. The Lorazepam causes drowsiness, along with irritability and dizziness, so it may help you sleep without adding anything else. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I took 30ml of zzzquil and then started feeling my anxiety starting in. Can I take my lorazepam 1mg?
