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...

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 ...

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...
