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...

Sandoz Ativan
120 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...

Drowsiness on lorazepam?
1 Reply RSS
I was just prescribed lorazepam to help deal with the anxiety of my husband of 18 years divorcing me. He can't seem to wrap his mind around supporting me towards wellness, and he has contributed to the severity of the depression...for about 14 years. My concern is that lorazepam will make me drowsy and create muddled thinking. I really need my wits about me to navigate my way through the divorce. So, reducing anxiety at the cost of clear thinking doesn't do me much good. My Doc is replacing Xanax because it just knocks me out. What are other people's experience with this drug? Anybody get relief from anxiety WITHOUT drowsiness? I'm going to try a mid dose today (Saturday) in the range my doc prescribed. Trial run :0) What about split doses? I've been told to take a h...

Yellow Pill Scored L R M<
3 Replies RSS
Yellow, round pill. One side has L R Other side has M< ## Lorazepam or alprazolam? ## Based on the description provided, The closest match I've been able to locate has the imprint "LR" rather than "LR M<". This pill is also round and yellow, but does not show a score line in the represented photo (however a different photo may prove that it has one). If this sounds like a possible match, the imprint LR is identified as Panwarfin (7.5 mg); manufactured by Abbott Laboratories. If this doesn't appear to be a match, I would consider taking the pill over to your local pharmacy and having it analyzed by their team to see if they can come up with anything. And as a last resort, you could ask them about getting the pills ingredients lab tested and brought back to...

small white round pill as a roxy 30 but thicker with line on one side no other markings
6 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...

small white round blank pill

I found some small white round thick pills in my nephew’s room. There are no markings, just blank on one side with a scored edge, and the other side has a single score line on it. It is 3/16 inch in diameter, and about 1/8 inch in height. There were in a bogus pharmacy bottle labeled Lorazepam 2 Mg. Can anyone help my identify what this pill may really be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ## sounds like lorazepam, i was prescribed this medication for antianxiety purposes. its not as powerful, but similiar to xanax, which i have also been prescribed. ## If you have any questions about what the pill is, you can bring it to a pharmacy where the have a series of books that show a pic of each pill with a description of it's uses. It is getting a little scary out there bc peop...

lorazepam side effects at high dosages
1 Reply RSS
My lorazepam was just inceased to 8mg. Can the recent increase cause side effects such as severe back pain and pain under the right breast in a person who has osteroporoseis who previously had minor side effects and is consuming adequate calcium ## Hello, Lindamann! How are you? Yes, it has been known to cause such symptoms, as side effects, in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, irritability and headache. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. It is best, however, to have it checked out by your doctor, to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with?

this is the best way i can describe what the pills looks like, its a very small tiny white pill with the letterr GG on one side and on the same side below, it says the numbers 92, on the other side it just has the line across it , I hope you can help me cause I need to know, if this pill can be harmful and I want to know what it is prescribed for, please help, I do not have a clue about the name or manufacturer, of this product, I am going nuts I have been trying for hours online trying to find an answer, , thankyou for you support denise ## Denise, Based on the description you provided GG 92, it sounds like a 1 mg Lorazepam. Not exactly the same as a Xanax, but it is used for a similar reason (anti-anxiety). The pill you are describing is actually a generic for Ativan. You can even see...
