Yes, Ativan is just the name brand, but Lorazepam is the active ingredient, so it would be the generic.

This is a Benzodiazepine, which is commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders, so it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

I've been taking Ativan since 1984. When I was forced into taking the generic form- lorazepam I noticed Ativan is so much better!!!! Lorazepam has a side effect of sleepiness!! It's horrible! Ativan brand is a ton better than the generic! Lorazepam is a hoax . They never came up with a generic that works as perfectly as the brand Ativan! Ativan is the only medicine that has ever worked for my anxiety and I trust it because it's the best and cures anxiety attacks.

I 100% agree with you. I have also been on ativan since from 2009 and still can't replace it with any other generic medicine, but in my country ativan is very hard to get. I had a severe anxiety attack and it was cured by ativan.
