pur-bloca side effects, also combination with ativan?

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. She prescribed Pur-Bloka. As she instructed, i took one tab 2hrs before the weddingand only became more worked and experienced such hot flashes! Ok, long story short. I have had alot of stress at work and my job is encreadably demanding. too many things came at me, and this afternoon i had the worst attack. I emmediately took a 40mg Pur-Bloka. I felabsolutely no difference, undrstanding that they do take a while. My mom arrived 10-15min later w...

scored on one side and has wyeth on the other about the size of a reg 2mg ativan but has no other numbers or imprints ,what could it be , thanks ## I have small orange round pills with "wyeth" across one side and a single score line across the other.

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...

small brown/orange pill with a 10 on one side

I have a small brown or dark orange pill that has what looks like a 10 on one side. I'm told it's ativan, but I'm just not sure. ## This tablet actually contains 10mgs of Citalopram, the active ingredient in Celexa, it is an SSRI antidepressant. NDC: 13668-0009 Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, weight changes, and mood changes. Is there anything I can help with?

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. Highly addictive and can result in heart attacks ## It is lorazepam made by aspen ...

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 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 ...

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. For more side effect info and etc. here's a link to the drug monograph: Ativan Info Click Here Hope that helps! ## Check the Fentanyl thread for some info on generic v brand name. Verwon was very helpful to me! ## Thanks Donna. I also made a new post, copying in the info from the original article where I learned the trut...

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...

How Long Does Ativan Stay in Your System

I have to take a drug test next week, ( in seven days), and took 2 mg of Ativan. I was wondering if it will show in a urine test. I am 165 lbs and have a reasonably high metabolism. ## After 7 days, no it should not show in a urine test, thought it will be detectable much longer in blood, tissue or hair tests. If yo have a valid prescription, all you have to do though is tell them that when you go in for the test. Ativan contains the active ingredient Lorazepam, it is a Benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, irritability and headache. You can read more here: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I have not taken any perscription drugs of any kind for 4 months.I am 158lbs.and have a fairly high metabolism....

New Doctor Refusing Ativan

My doctor just retired. I saw my new "nurse practioner" tonight. I was getting refills on my prescriptions and she looked at my ativan and said no this isn't happening. She said ativan doesn't work and she will not be prescribing it for me after the next bottle. I have been on ativan for 12 years. It completely controls my anxiety. What do I do? Can she do this? ## Unfortunately, she can do it. It's extremely unethical though. She should, at least, provide you with an extensive titration/taper plan. I would try to find another doctor. One that will continue to provide you with lorazepam or slowly taper you off. Benzo withdrawal can be protracted and last indefinitely if not done properly. Even then some withdrawal symptoms can last for years. I wish you the best. I...

How Many Days for Ativan to be out of my System

I've had regular screenings for 3 years now almost every 2 weeks to 4 weeks. I have taken 1-3 mlgs of Ativan every night the entire time and only had one fail on a test. I always drank 2 glasses (large) of water in the morning's, if I had to go for a test and might have to pee. It never once failed me! Funny now I've stopped taking Ativan and just wondering how long till I can stop having to drink all this water! ## Do you think ativan will be out of my system as well after six days? I have only taken it for one week. About 13mg all together throughout the week. ## You probably will fail. Depending on how long you have to clear it . I took way less than that during a week, stopped for 2 and a half days and had a faint positive line which is considered negative but still. It ...

small round white pill with fancy v on one side and nothing the other

I found a small round white pill with a fancy V on one side and a line running down the middle on the other side. What is this? Thank you!! ## Hello, Pookie! How are you? With such an obscure marking, this is most likely an over the counter product of some type. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone recognize this tablet? ## It's for acsesive sweating, it basically dries u out and the side effects suck. Most teens suffer from this but only a few end up taking these pills. ## My daughter took that pill for anxiety. It is 1 mg of Ativan (lorazepam) . Strong pill. ## I never saw a lorazepam that looked like this description. I also just looked at a ton of different generic Ativan and I found nothing with a V. ## Lucky you, though, if an Ativa...

Ativan Shape And Color

what is the color of ativan 1mg ## The way a pill looks is entirely up to the whit and whim of the company making it, so there may be many different (1mg) Ativan pills on the market that aren't the same color or shape as what you might be expecting. Locating the imprint on the pill in question is the most effective way to determine every detail about it. Do you know what the markings on this specific pill are, or even the name of the manufacturer by chance? If you do, I can easily look it up for you and determine the color of the pill among whatever other attributes it possess. Hope this helps! ## white oblong a"v" on one side.and on other side I believe its6469 THANK youwas told its Ativan but not sure of strength. ## Hi Paul, The pill in description with that marking is ac...
