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...

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!

Is Lorazepam And Ativan The Same Thing
5 Replies RSS
iam taking Ativan1 mg.now my doctor precrip me lorazepam.I want to know if i stop ativan and start that one is that ok..if those are same madicins. ## Yes, Ativan is just the name brand, but Lorazepam is the active ingredient, so it would be the generic. This is a Benzodiazepine, which is commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders, so it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Yes Ativan is the same thing as Lorazepam, its just a generic brand. Its a Benzodiazepine ## I have taken ativan for years but is extremely expensive. Can I take the generic and get the same results. ## Yea, does it give the same effect like helping you to relax? ## I've been taking Ativan since 1984. Wh...

Inactive ingredients of Qualitest or Leading Pharma Lorazepam
4 Replies RSS
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...

Need replacement for lorazepam
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking Ativan for 8 years now, prescribed to me by my doctor, after being hospitalized for drug use. I am doing great now, but after a motorcycle accident got prescribed Ativan "lorazepam" again for pain and muscle relief but now I am at 6 mg of Ativan daily and it's not doing the job anymore. It helps me and relieves my pain and anxiety for one hour, then nothing. I need to find a replacement if possible just like Ativan. It's addictive I know, but very helpful in many ways and not heavy or disturbing the next day. I am 43 years old. ## I feel the same way. I noticed a difference in the brand name Ativan made in Germany. It was made by MEDA Manufacturing and I never had a problem until Mylan took over the manufacturing. The pills didn't seem to be mixed ...

Very small round white pill SZ / 197
6 Replies RSS
Can't find it anywhere else on the internet? Not sure what it is???? ## Lorazapame. 05mg for anxiety ## Based on my research, I can confirm that a white round pill marked with "SZ" on one side and "197" on the other side, is identified as Lorazepam (0.5mg), manufactured by Sandoz. Lorazepam is indicated for the short-term relief of symptoms associated with anxiety and/or depression. For additional verification, this tablet also has a National Drug Code of 0781-5371-01. I hope this info helps! ## Found a bottle of very small white pills on one size it has letters sz on the other side the numbers 197 can anyone tell me what these are called and what they are used for my husband takes the paper off the bottles incase someone steals them our name isn't on it plus it ...

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...

Sandoz Ativan
130 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...

small white round pill as a roxy 30 but thicker with line on one side no other markings
9 Replies RSS
white pill, small as a roxy 15 or 30 but its twice as thick and is very slightly raised on the sides. Has a line across the middle on one side and nothing else on it. Is this a steroid? ## Hello, Randal! How are you? If there are no markings, it's rather difficult to be certain of what it contains. We know it's not a U.S. prescription medication, since they are all required to have markings to enable their identification, but it could be any one of a large number of over the counter products or a medication obtained from a foreign source. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone recognize this? ## I have the same issue here with a pill, have you found out what it may be? ## I have a white pill its supposed to be a oxycodone 30 mg but it i...

Actual amount of lorazepam
Post a Reply
I was originally taking .5 mg of lorazepam (manufactured by Mylan) sublingually twice a day with great results. My latest prescription is manufactured by Sandoz & comes in a smaller size pill. It seems to be less effective than the one made by Mylan. Where can I find a comparison of the actual amounts of lorazepam used by different manufacturers? I understand Activas/Watson also puts one out as well. I read that companies can stay within 20% + or - of the original & still be considered as an acceptable.generic. How is that possible since the amount of active ingredient would vary?
