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,...

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...

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...

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. Have tried several other brands with little success, they are not the same and do not work as well. Do you know the Ranbaxy Brand is available on line or in chain pharmacies.

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...

round blue tabletwith no markings
supposed to be lorazepam 2 mg from jpee labs in india-round blue pill in blister pack with all writing on it- serial number etc- looks authentic but don't know ## checked again on the blue tablets from jpee drugs from India. They are in the blister packs - says lor pam B P. These have no markings on them and have all the numbers etc on the blisters. I really want to know what they are for sure. ## Hello, Groundhog! How are you? If there are no markings, it's going to be difficult to determine what they are, especially since they are form a foreign source. However, I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Is anyone else familiar with these tablets?

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...

SANDOZ LORAZEPAM 1mg. HAS ANYONE TRIED THE NEW VERSION??
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. Discuss/Possible-New-Purepac-Lorazepam-233726.htm I hope this helps! :) ## they work fine....

zzzquil and lorazepam?
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?

lorazepam
I am wondering why I am taking Lorazepam and when my doctor does a blood test it shows negative ## I had the same problem, have taken Lorazepam for years. According to tests, nothing showed up, something wrong somewhere?? ## Why don't you two ask your doctor why he is giving you a prescription before you start popping pills?? Be a bit more informed about what you are putting into your body and why! ## If you are a student doctor, then you would know that they run tests to see if the meds show up. I have seem many times when the tests show negative and I know I have taken the meds! ## I've been on Loraz.2mg. 2 times a day for over 10 years and have been tested numerous times and have always tested negative.
