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, anticonvulsion, antiemesis 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, as well as sedation ...

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...

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...

find a compassionate doctor
At wits end... 15 years with the same doctor who prescribed lorazepam and alprozolam for extreme anxiety and social phobia. Dr is now retired, and thanks to junky dr shoppers, his replacement has " had it" with these degenerates. He tried to switch me to Buspar, an antidepressant that also works for mild cases of anxiety. I followed his directions and tapered off the Ativan and xanax and switched to Buspar. Well, I am back to where I was 15 years ago. Even though I have never abused the benzodiazepines, and never asked for more or asked a pharmacy to refill my prescription early, and the fact that I have 15 years of records in this new dr.'s computer, he will not prescribe medicine that will help me. I refuse to break the law and risk jail or health problems due to sub stand...

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....

I read somewhere that Ranbaxy brand lorazepam 2 mg tablets contain 250 mg of terbinafine. Is this true? Is there any way to find out exactly what is in a medication which is not listed? I need to know due to sensitivity issues with many medications.

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.

Very small round white pill SZ / 197
Can't find it anywhere else on the internet? Not sure what it is???? ## Lorazapame. 05mg for anxiety ## Based on my research, I can confirm that a white round pill marked with "SZ" on one side and "197" on the other side, is identified as Lorazepam (0.5mg), manufactured by Sandoz. Lorazepam is indicated for the short-term relief of symptoms associated with anxiety and/or depression. For additional verification, this tablet also has a National Drug Code of 0781-5371-01. I hope this info helps!

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 taste
I been taking lorazepam 1 mg white small round, soft and sweet tasting. I think these are meant to be taken sublingualy. I just got some that were crushed up but they were bitter. Anyone heard of bitter tasting lorazepam? White in color and not soft? ## Hi jessie, After seeing a number of comments from other users, I think the taste largely depends on which manufacturer you get. Most of the reviews I've come across state that they also had a extremely bitter or chalky taste in their mouth after having certain brands. While others have somewhat of a sweet taste. Perhaps one or more of the inactive ingredients that make up the tablet's composition, could be more prominent in a particular batch. That's just one theory anyway. Do you know which company it is who makes the bitter...
