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.

However, I must reiterate how dangerous such a high dosage is, you run the risk of overdosing and causing possible organ damage and death.

im in the same situation, i have a high tolerance to benzos so taking 10-30 mgs of ativan is high but doesnt affect me too bad just relaxes me. i need to know if it will be out of my system within the week i may have to test for the court. speaking of that what type of method do the courts use to test you on site? can they differentiate which benzos are u taking or will it just show up as "benzos" i have a legal script for xanax and had one for ativan but t was awhile ago and i lost the bottle but saved the pills.

What kind of blithering i**** takes 40 of ativan? You are easily in the danger zone of respiratory depression and possibly cardiac arrest. .......with benzos less is more me I'm a RN with a substance abuse problem.

What happened? I'm curious, a nurse as well, hospitals used to screen after they've offered you the position. When you come in for paperwork, then. I would have be honest, like you said. I know current employees are put on probation and have random pee test frequently!
I hoped it worked out for you!

The average daily prescribed dose for Ativan is 1-4 milligrams, why are you taking 30-40??? A regular dose will be out of your system the next day.

I have 3 sisters battling breast cancer all at once including me, I was so nervous, I has 2 mg of Ativan that did not help, after a week, I realized I had taken 100 mg in a week, because I take Ativan on a regular basis, I have to have a scheduled drug test in 3 weeks. Will it show that I took that much?
