Have you tried Leading Pharma or Teva Lorazepam?

Some people say it is less effective or has no effect due to less active ingredients, causing some side effects or reaction to someone. Some recommend Teva but some say it is not good. However, I can't get Teva as there is no pharmacy to dispense it in my area. I tried other brands after Qualitest was discontinued, but did not find any that work. ## It really varies from person to person, so there is not specific best pill that you can be told about. The FDA warns that Lorazepam carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as dizziness, headache, nausea, mood changes, and irritability. What are the markings on the tablets you are currently taking? Can you please post back and clarify, so I can research more details for you? ## Leading Pharma lorazepam is...

leading pharma 2mg lorazepam

I am really confused with everyone posts about the leading brand lorazepam I take 2mg and have been on lorazepam generic form for 25 years I've taken every single kind from Watson to now leading it looks like the sugary taste is everyone's problem here such bad reviews about this company is obserred they are no different than any other generic lorazepam they work the same the only difference in this pill is that it's inactive ingredient contains potassium and that's why the pill taste like sugar but my point here is that if are a longtime user of benzos you people would have all ended up withdrawing and possibly seizing if the pill really didn't contain the main ingredient and the er doctor would have been the first to report this pharmacy if your illness had anythin...

Aurobindo Lorazepam

Has anyone taken this generic brand of Lorazepam made by Aurobindo pharm? How does it work compared to other brands? ## I refuse all meds made by Aurobindo. I say I am allergic. Idk what they put in the fake adderall they sell but it makes me feel awful so I will go without before I will accept them. ## Following. The only brands I ever tried were leading and watson. Would love to see what other brands are out there ## Idk about the benzos - Mallinckrodt adderall is really weak, but at least it doesn't give me slamming headaches and nausea. I have to take twice as much though. And I am a lightweight. I used to like Watson meds but I never see them anymore. ## I also refuse all drugs manufactured by Aurobindo. ## I usually find them at CVS and Rite Aid. Anywhere else I should avoid? ...

How can I tell if my Lorazepam is a sugar pill?

Lorazepam /2 mg / round white / 2 / EP 906. it tastes like sugar and doesn't seem to be helping ## i have been taking lorazepam for several years and got a new script from a different pharmacy and I haven't felt the same since i have started to remember my dreams and having panic attacks since i started this new script also they almost dissolve instantly and taste sweet i feel like i am not on any meds now so i don't know if the pills are real. any help would be grateful thank you ## I've been taking Lorazepam for about a year, just recently I started just putting it under my tongue it melts quickly and it is sweet but it's always been like that since I've taking them and it does what it's supposed to for me. ## The taste is actually irrelevant and doesn'...

Is Mylan Lorazepam Discontinued?

My pharmacy told me that they can't buy mylan any more and they do not know if it is discontinued or not. Since Qualitest lorazepam was discontinued, Mylan is the only lorazepam that works (less effective than Qualitest) but works with less side effects than others (Watson, leading pharma, actavis: don't work causing serious side effects). Any alternatives, or another generic lorazepam that works ok? Lorazepam is the only sedative that works for me for anxiety and stiffness due to side effects of levothyroxine. Other medicine such as clonazepam, alprazolam (xanax), cymbalta, zoloft, lexapro, etc do not work. ## I don't know about lorazepam being discontinued but I was told by two representatives the they are discontinuing clonazepam and I'm devastated. Mylan is the only ...

White oblong pill scored with I N on one side

Small, white, oblong (rather than oval) pill scored and imprinted with I N or N I on one side - I am in Canada, in case that makes a difference in the appearance. ## white, oblong (rectangular with edges rounded) pill, scored in the middle, and imprinted on one side with and I and N (or N and I) - Canadian - trying to identify ## Oh, here's the post. This gentleman reached me by email. None of my searches have turned up anything for this. This does seem to be Canadian in origin, but I have yet to make a positive I.D. I even reached out to a pharmacist in Canada but they were stumped as well. Does anyone else know? ## the imprint might be a lower case L, i.e. l or an upper case i, i.e. I ## I think this may be lorazepam.I have similar pills and in Canada ## Mbnc can you post back wit...

Are pills still good after getting wet?

Just a simple question, if a tablet is not labled to be dissolved in water, can you disolve it in water anyway to make it easier to swallow? It's not a capsule baring in mind so it's easy dissolvable. ## Hello, Vama! How are you? It would be better to just cut the tablet into smaller pieces to make it easier to swallow. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I accidentally washed my white round 1mg lorazepam's in the washer they were in a zip lock bag apparently a cheap one lol the medicine is all stuck together can I dry them out? An Will they still be safe to take I only take little pieces when I take them anyway so can I still dry them an take little pieces? ## I got my lyricas wet in water they swelled up..they are red gell based are they still good they did not come...

small white round pill ZS157

These ZS157 pills were in my bottle of lorazepam. The size is nearly the same as the lorazepam, but not quite. That's how I noticed. I also discovered a lot of ZS157s. I have not yet identified these. I also take pindolol, which are also small round and white pills, confusion reigns. I finally dumped out the lorazepam bottle and looked at every pill under my sewing magnifying glass. Can you tell me what the ZS157s are? These pills were mixed in with lorazepam, and heaven only knows how many of them I've taken in good faith. What should I do about this? ## Is the marking SZ 197? If so, they are also Lorazepam, they are manufactured by Sandoz Inc., and they list them as being 0.5mg tablets. NDC: 00781-5371 Occasionally, if they run short of the product from one manufacturer, a pha...

Lorazepam with same fillers as MYLAN

I am very sensitive to fillers and have just learned that "MYLAN" has discontinued it's Lorazepam. I cannot find a brand using the same inactive ingredients as MYLAN, which I tolerate well. Can you tell me who makes Lorazepam as MYLAN did, with Lactose Monohydrate, Microcrystalline Cellulos, Polacrilin Potassium and Sodium Stearyl Fumarate? (PLZ include all that you find as our area has very few pharmacies.) THANK YOU. ## Hello HomeTown Mom, Sorry to hear that the brand that works for you is being discontinued. Hopefully I can give you some viable options based upon the information you have given me. Out of the 100 brands I reserached on the NIH website these are the few that have the exact same active and inactive ingredients as the Mylan brand. Mylan Aphena Proficient Rx L...

Inactive ingredients of Qualitest or Leading Pharma Lorazepam

What are the inactive ingredients of Qualitest lorazepam or Leading Pharma lorazepam? Does anybody know? It seems that its formula might have been changed because I feel 1mg is less effect than before or does not work. I used to take Ativan 1mg before abroad and one month from Kaiser in the U.S. but they gave me refill as generic lorazepam (Qualitest). I felt 50-60% effectiveness compared to Ativan(brand lorazepam). I can't take Watson lorazepam as it does not work for me causing side effects (rapid heart beats, sweating, anxiety, dehydration). Qualitest has less side effect (less dehydrated than Ativan) I did not have physical dependence on Ativan for long time and quit too. But this generic lorazepam is getting less effective over a few months. Also my pharmacy had changed Qualite...

Lorazepam taper off

I’ve been on 1-1 1/2 mg of Lorazepam for about a year and a half. I'm tying to taper off and looking for a safe reduction process. A couple of weeks ago I had tapered down to 1/2 -3/4 mg and ran out. I couldn’t even get out of bed. Heart racing, stomach knotted a total mess. My Dr office told me it was withdrawal and just wanted me to ride it out but eventually gave me a 2 week refill. My neighbor had to pick it up for me as I was basically incapable. This didn’t feel safe for me so I called a couple of RN friends with experience in the field and a friend who is a retired addiction counselor of 30 years. They all told that what my Dr initially said was very bad advice and dangerous and that I would need a 6-8 taper schedule of 25% every 2 weeks. I’m sure I...

Lorazepam - Need to find a brand like Watson (not Actavis)

Help!!!! I've loved the Watson brand of Lorazepam. I just take a small amount and it eases my anxiety. HOWEVER, Actavis bought Watson and (trust me) the product is no longer effective. OMG. So frustrating. Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes a Lorazepam comparable to Watson's? ## My lorazepam have Watson 541 stamped on them. ## I am curious as well, it seems like generic medications no longer hold standards. I have had a hard time finding a good generic Adderall IR. I’ve called every local pharmacy and even requested to order “what most people’s advice will be” and I can’t find one to do that for me. But if I could help any whatsoever I’d google independent pharmacy’s locally and call and simply tell them your new generic isn...

lorazepam side effects at high dosages

My lorazepam was just inceased to 8mg. Can the recent increase cause side effects such as severe back pain and pain under the right breast in a person who has osteroporoseis who previously had minor side effects and is consuming adequate calcium ## Hello, Lindamann! How are you? Yes, it has been known to cause such symptoms, as side effects, in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, irritability and headache. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. It is best, however, to have it checked out by your doctor, to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is Activision and watson the same lorazapan? I was taking watson for years then they snuck in activists. I haven't slept and I'm always yelling at my husband. T...

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).

lorazepam small round purple pill

My son was given a small round purple pill in hospital tonight. I was told it was 2 mg of Lorazapam. I can't find a picture of any 2 Mg Lorazapam that are small round and purple? My son is autistic and is in a catatonic -like condition due to high levels of anxiety recently. Help! I need to know if this little pill really was Lorazapam . ## Wish I could help you . maybe it depends on the dose. Mine are four grams each and they are white. Never saw pur ple. Sorry darling. I will do a bit of research for you. Hang on! ## Thank you for your reply. I've looked up Lorazapam 2mg on the web but only saw white pills at that dose. ## Hello, Margaret! How are you and your son?

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...

Is sandoz lorazepam the same as watson or actavis?

Is sandoz lorazepam the same as watson or actavis? I mean, the same brand? I heard that they are same company or same manufacturer. I took watson but due to serious side effect (panic attack, heart pounding, dehydration, choking, asthma, internal tremor, insomnia) with no calming effect, I was very ill so could not take it. Rite aid accepted return, but CVS did not accept return when I got serious side effect from leading pharma lorazepam at once so could not take it. CVS said in California, once patients receive any medicine they can not return it as it is against the law. Then why rite aid accepted return? CVS also told me that no transfer is allowed. But for controlled substance, one transfer is allowed as I experienced a lot of times before. Once patient bought it unless they return...

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.

Does food lessen the strength of Rx medications?

Trying to avoid taking 2 meds a little too close together. Does it help to snack when taking prescription medicine (such as Lorazepam or Hydrocodone 10 mg)? ## Food won't lessen the efficacy of Lorazepam, or Hydrocodone, but it can lessen the severity of the side effects they cause, such as nausea, and dizziness. The FDA also warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause other side effects, such as headache, irritability, constipation, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Very helpful. Thank you!

Venlafluxine/Citalopram

Please discuss the cons of both these medicines. Dr wants me to introduce Venlor while reducing Acti-lift until I am on Venlor alone. Which one has the most negative effects on the brain, and in what way?

I live on my own, very irregularly see people and have no support system. It is ok, but I need to not compromise my senses in any way I can prevent. With the Ctialopram I do not cry at any bagatelle, but it does leave me with flat emotions, forgetfulnes, a very slow mind, etc. I use 10 mg per day. I am scared to change to this unknown pil, as I do not know what else it may affect, except my corpse-like emotions. Also, how permanent any of
