A 150 Ativan from China white scored oval shaped

Oval or football shaped white tablet scored in the middle, breaks easily. A on left and 150 on right side, nothing on the back. has a few blue specks. Came from China ## I received my prescription from China that were supposed to be brand Wyeth Ativan. The medicine came in a baggie with no insert of what they were. The pills were white with blue flecks, oval shaped like a football, scored down the middle. On the left was the letter A and on the right of the score were the numbers 59. I have seen pills like these that are phentermine. So I was sent something entirely different from what I had ordered. It would have been dangerous for me to have taken this medication if it is phentermine. This is a very serious error and someone should know about this and correct this. ## Don't act su...

If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## I am told that adivan ``is like a muscle relaxer''.

ativan lower blood pressure

Does ativan / lorazepam lower blood pressure at 1 mg tab? I am starting new bp meds that haven't kicked in yet. I was weaning off ativan but felt pressure was a bit high so I took a whole 1 mg for the first time in a week. I was down to 1 1/2 for the whole day. The ER gave me 2 mg to lower my blood pressure and it worked but I don't want to take 2. Will 1 reduce it some? ## ativan lowered my blood pressure really fast to where I almost kicked off with only 1 mg of this crazy medication I thought clonazepam was bad , but lorazepam take's the cake... Back to Clonazepam for me ... screw ativan = lorazepam... ## Wow, that is a very unusual reaction. In response to the original question, yes it can help to lower blood pressure. As a matter of fact, it is sometimes used for those ...

I have taken Pur-Bloka previously, with not much luck. Being a bridesmaid at my sister's wedding, having bipolar2 stabelised, I experience my emotions grabbing hold. (I did not want to be so anxious that I faint, or have an attack! in the aistle ) My Pshyciatrist was unavailable to provide me with a calming aid, so i saw one of her collegues.

What Colors do 2mg Liquid Ativan come in?

I am trying to find out if what i have, is what i think it is, but i am not sure what color liquid lorazepam comes in. If someone could help me by answering, id be so grateful. ty ## Just because it may be a particular color doesn't mean it's Ativan/Lorazepam, so it still wouldn't likely be safe to try using it, because there are many other things that it could be. Learn more Ativan details here. There is no color coding for injectable liquids, so they can be whatever color the manufacturer feels like making them, or not have any, if they so choose. Most are clear, or may have a slight yellow tint to avoid the use of dyes that some people may be allergic to. Just from a quick browse online, the ones I am seeing images of are all clear liquids, but as I said, that doesn't...

C18 round white score on other side

found at grandmothers house after she died some pills in a bottle with nothing on it C18 round white score on other side that is all that is on it ## I haven't been able to find any listings for a tablet with this marking. That leads me to suspect that it's most likely an over the counter product, of some type, since they aren't required to list their imprints with the FDA. I'll keep searching and post back, when I know anything. Does anyone else recognize these tablets? ## Thank you tons it helps I guess but thank you for looking that is nice of you to help people Angie ## ativan from south africa (lorazepam) ## Ativan-Lorazepam belongs to the group ~Benzodiazepams~ used to treat anxiety.

Sacramento doctors who prescribe Benzos?

I have been taking Ativan for anxiety and my doctor is going to stop prescribing them. He said that nationwide doctors are no longer prescribing benzodiazepines. I don’t know how to find a doctor who will and I know calling doctors wouldn’t be a good idea. Hope someone in Northern California can suggest someone.

Pain management termination due to Dr prescribed benzodiazepine

I have acute anxiety/panic attacks. My pain mgmnt Dr used to prescribe Ativan along with hydrocodone up till 2016 as their new policy prohibited it. Family Dr then prescribed my Ativan till the opioid crisis hit with the DEA, etc telling Dr's basically how to treat their patients. After several referrals to Psych Dr's within the same hospital as pain mgmnt, they said they could not prescribe it, that it had to be pain mgmnt. Each said other Dr had to. Anyway, found a decent Psych who after in depth appointments, past history, prescribed Ativan for me in June 2019. Went to my scheduled pain mgmnt appt July 3, 2019, and was dropped because I now take a legally obtained benzodiazepine and their policy is "One or the other, you choose". So I chose to be able to function in p...

How does Ativan help depression?

I am currently experiencing anxiety and sever depression and anhedonia. So far I've found that Ativan seems to relieve the depression, but not really the anxiety.(I feel kind of eurphoric on .5mg for a few hours.) I'm having strange reactions to benzos right now, with my condition seemingly being caused by clonazepam. My question is that are there any dedicated antidepressents (preferably used as an augment for nortriptyline) that influence depression-related chemicals in the brain in a similar way as Ativan? I think I saw somewhere that Ativan affects GABA.

Sandoz Vs Watson Ativan

my patient tells me that Sandoz 0.5mg Ativan works for him and Watson Ativan 0.5mg does not. it makes him feel hazy. ## Hi, Joseph! What many people, even those in the medical profession aren't aware of, is that there are some differences between generic medications. The FDA actually allows them to fluctuate from the name brand in the amount of the active ingredient by as much as plus or minus 20%. (This is under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, if you'd like to research it for reference.) The FDA considers that fluctuation amount to be therapeutically insignificant, and for most people it is. However, what happens is that generic manufacturers aren't required to measure against each other, only against the amount that was in the original name brand. Most people still never not...

how long does 30mg of ativan stay in your system

If I take about 30-40mg of Ativan today/tomorrow will I pass a drug screen on next wed. ( about a week) I keep seeing and hearing different things! I haven't taken anything like this in years, so just wondering how long it takes to clear!! ## Ativan contains the active ingredient Lorazepam, this is a Benzodiazepine, used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, irritability and headache. That said, 30 to 40mgs is a VERY high dosage and it is not safe to take that much at once. This is a very potent medication, what are you taking that much? I am assuming that since you are concerned about the drug screen, you do not have a prescription for this. If you do not take any more for a week, yes, it would be out of your system by then. Ho...

Will Ativan show up in a drug screen?

I took one ativan pill at least i think it was on 3/18/07. Thought it was an over the counter pain pill. It's not prescribed to me and I have a job enterview on 3/22/07 where they do a drug screen. Can someone tell me if it will still be in my system by then? Hope I get an answer soon thank you ## Ativan is a benzodiazepine, most regular employment checks don't look for this, however, it would more than likely be out of your system by then anyway, with the half-life and having taken only 1 dose, it is usually out of your system in a max of 48 to 72 hours. ## Thank you for the info cause I was told by a few people that it may be up to 30 to 45 days. If your right you just lifted a big worry off my mine. If not then thanks for the concern and your responce. Have a great day. ## Ev...

How Long Does 1 mg of Ativan Stay in Your System for a Urine Test

My name is Barb. If I take half of a 0.5mg of Ativan this morning & have a drug test (UA) in two days, and I continue to hydrate myself, do u think I will pass the UA? I'm on a private drug program. My anxiety is severe. I have to breakdown to take a small amount. But I risk getting in trouble if I'm tested dirty for Ativan / Benzos. What's your opinion??? Thank you. ## I took 2 mg of larozepam on monday had to take a ua thursday and was clean. No lie!! ## You should always give yourself AT LEAST 3 days from the END of the duration of effect. Ativan is about 4 hours. Six to be safe. Your only saving grace is that you only took half a milligram BUT you are seriously pushing it. Luckily Ativan is short acting like xanax and a small milligram per dose drug in comparison to ...

Ativan (Lorazepam) Side Effects

Could someone please tell me if Ativan can cause glazing look in the eyes? ## Absolutely, it is a Benzodiapine, the same drug class as Xanax or Valium. It tends to cause an initial spaciness in people who have not adjusted to taking the med, or have recently experienced a dosage change. These type of side effects usually wear off in about 2 weeks, give or take a few days to account for a person's individual body chemistry and the way it may process a medication.

How long will 10mg of Ativan stay in your system?

How long will 10 mg of Ativan stay in my urine? I used it only once. ## Approximately 48 to 72 hours, after taking it, before it processes out. This would be for standard urine test. It can be longer for blood or hair tests. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Ativan isn't going to show up in ur piss test so don't worry about it. I've been taking it for 6 years and had 2 dozen piss tests and never showed up. Its not like regular valium. Just be Careful because its harder to quit than heroin. ## That's false lies. They can easily test for ativan, my doctor has tested me for benzos and lorazepam came up with no problem. so yes it can be tested. I heard it takes 4 to 5 days to get out of your system but trace amounts can be found even 7 days later. ## that is a c...
