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...

Possible New Purepac Lorazepam
20 Replies RSS
I have a bottle of Purepac Lorazepams as prescribed, but half of the pills have the usual "Purepac R" followed by 59 and the others have a strange moon-like symbol followed by the number 59. Has anyone ever seen these before? ## I do believe this is a new one with a change to the logo, because while it isn't listed in the prescription drug databases yet, there have been several other posts about it recently. Learn more Lorazepam details here. If you're in doubt as to what it is, then I'd suggest asking your pharmacist to double check for you. Has anyone else received these tablets? ## Not that I know of, but like I said, I couldn't even find em on the net yet. ## yes i got a refill on my lorazepam and this time they have the crescent and 59 on one side. Why doesn...

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...

pill with half moon
1 Reply RSS
I found a white round pill that has a half moon on it and the number 083 is what looks like but honestly having trouble making out last number. On the opposite side it is scored. Can someone help me identify this? Thank you. ## Hello, Rose! How are you? I believe the numbers are actually 063. This tablet is manufactured by Actavis Elizabeth and they list it as containing 2mgs of Lorazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine, so it 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?

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...
