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 including the ability to: reduce anxiety, interfere with new memory formation, reduce agitation/induce sleep, treat seizures, treat nausea and vomiting, and relax muscles.[5][6] Lorazepam is used for the short-term treatment of anxiety, insomnia, acute seizures including status epi...

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...

How Long Will She Sleep After 60 Mg Of Lorazapam
2 Replies RSS
my friend took 60mg of lorazapam and has been asleep all day ## Medications can affect everyone differently, so one can only assume that your friend's heavy sleeping is attributed to a side effect of this drug. 60mg however seems like an overkill dose. The usual dose for treating anxiety is 2-3 mg/day given in two or three divided doses. Insomnia is treated with 2-4 mg given at bedtime. But 60mg doesn't seem appropriate for any condition. Did you mean to type 6mg? A few side effects of Lorazepam that could trigger prolonged sleep are: drowsiness, dizziness, tiredness, weakness Lorazepam is used to relieve anxiety. It works by slowing activity in the brain to allow for relaxation. Based on the indications for this drug, I would think that your friend simply could've had too m...

Lori 2 Lorazepam
8 Replies RSS
has anybody taken this medicine MADE IN INDIA ## HAS ANYBODY TAKEN LORI-2 GENERIC FOR ATIVAN FROM 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 ho...

lorazepam - excell
Post a Reply
I was taking Watson for sometime. It did the trick with my anxiety. When I went for a refill they gave me Excell. It does not do it for me, only zonks me. The pharmaceutical companies buying and selling other pharmaceuticals the druggist can't keep up with them. I telephoned some local pharmacies also mom and pop pharmacies. You guessed, Excell.

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...
