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...

lorazepam not sure wud like to know zs 661

Found the pill cleaning out my cabinet it says 661_zs it's white and round a d has a breaking mark on other side. Would lokw to know what it is? ## Hi linny, Your thoughts are spot on about the pill ID being Lorazepam. However from what I could gather, the imprint was probably misinterpreted, because it's actually listed as "SZ 199" instead of ZS 661. This particular pill contains 2mgs of Lorazepam, which is indicated for use in treating anxiety disorders. Also for added verification, it's reportedly manufactured by Sandoz and carries a National Drug Code of 0781-5379. I hope this helps!

Lorazepam?? APO5 white oval/eliptical/capsule pill
2 Replies RSS
I am trying to find out what kind of pill it is. It's white, oval/eliptical/capsule shaped pill with APO 5 on one side and simply scored on the other side. Tastes sweet, like most benzos. I was told it is Ativan, but I can not find it online, so maybe someone here knows what i'm talking about. ## Is the marking possibly APO 2? If so, then it does contain 2mgs of Lorazepam, which is a Benzodiazepine that's used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Learn more: ## I have the exact same but it does read 5 and looks like a lorazepam 2 for size/shape/material its made of, but I've never seen one. Poss diazepam 5mgs?

Lorazepam Given without checking med list for interactions by hospitals and doctors.

Diagnosed triple negative inflammatory breast cancer 9-17-12. Been taking 2 antidepressants since the 80s. No one looked at my meds before putting in my port or starting 18 chemos. They gave me Lorazepam everytime. The mixture of Lorazepam with the antidepressants made my bowels and stomach hurt like it was crushed glass I had eaten. 8 days in hospital after 3rd chemo. No one caught the drug interaction so I was given more Lorazepam in the hospital and when the gastro did colonoscopy and endoscopy. Gastro gave me Lorazepam before scoping me. Again no drug check. Pain continued for 2 years. Bowel movements made me vomit from the pain. Oncologist had no clue about drug interactions. I saw 8 doctors in 3 hospitals and none could recognize a severe drug interaction. Why? They view Ativan as...

what is v 4009 pill

Hi what is a white round pill with 40 on one side and it's blank on the other side larger than an aspirin? ## Hello, Belinda! How are you? The tablet with the 4009 V on it is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 2mgs of Lorazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. As to the larger white tablet with the 40 on it, I believe that may be the one manufactured by Accord Healthcare, which contains 40mgs of Lisinopril. Its an ACE inhibitor that's used to help treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects...

What Dr in California can prescribe Rx773? ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 1mg of Lorazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. And technically, any doctor with a license to practice medicine could prescribe it, but due to the new DEA directives that were set forth last year, most will not and you'll most likely need to see a psychiatrist. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that might be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. Ca...

Round small pill 1/2moon 59----other side deep line ## Hello, Joe! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Actavis Elizabeth and they list it as containing 1mg of Lorazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as being a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders.

Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello, You mean to tell me that you got a round white tablet with a R59 on the back of it? Actavis Elizabeth, NJ manufacture? R you sure?

Is a 031 r stronger than a Lorazepam 1mg?
1 Reply RSS
I wanting to know this because i have really bad panic attacks and i need to know which one will help me the fastest? ## Hi Kayla, Both medications are in the same drug class of benzodiazepines, but in terms of overall potency/strength mg for mg, there's really no truly accurate answer since drug equivalency charts don't take into account the fact that everyone responds to these types of drugs differently. Looking on various discussion threads comparing the two, I concluded that neither medication seems to have anymore clout than the other overall. However, from what I understand Lorazepam is reported to be longer lasting than Alprazolam. The best thing to do in my opinion would be to ask your doctor for a trial of either medication to see what works best for you over the course...
