Lorazepam Overview

Lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan among others, is a benzodiazepine medication.[2] It is used to treat anxiety disorders, trouble sleeping, active seizures including status epilepticus, alcohol withdrawal, and chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, as well as for surgery to interfere with memory formation and to sedate those who are being mechanically ventilated.[2][6] While it can be used for severe agitation, midazolam is usually preferred.[2] It is also used, along with other ...

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). Thank you. ## Hello! I have been getting 90 days supplies of Lorazepam 1MG from SANDOZ....my new Rx just came and it's from ACTAVIS.....it does not work or relieve any anxiety at all....I might as well take a placebo...it does not work at all....I took 2 pills...nothing and then 1hour later took 2 more....before with the other brand...I would probably be asleep....but,nothing with this new brand.....I do not know what to do about this....... ## I have...

Lorazepam use

Hi, I've been taking lorazepam 0.5 mg once a day for 16yrs. Now my doctor wants me to wean off it, but I'm having a hard time. ## What tapering/weaning method have you been using? Generally, the modern preferred method is to gradually reduce the dose, while spacing doses further and further apart. Stopping too abruptly may create the risk of seizures, according to FDA reports. Are you on any other medications? ## David, I'm sorry to hear about your struggle. Unfortunately it has become a very common complaint with the tightening Restrictions imposed on this class of drug. Although your dose is minimal the length of time will require a very deliberate titration and taper schedule. I would suggest you research the Weismann method for benzodiazepine detoxification. I know from ...

PICTURES OF LORAZAPAM PILL

SMALL WHITE TABLETS WITH IMPRINTS 241 ## round white pill with v on one side breakage line on other ## To the original poster, is that the complete imprint? Watson Laboratories does list one with the marking of WATSON on one side and 241 over 1 on the other, their database shows that it contains 1mg of Lorazepam, which is used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability. Lois, are there any other markings, or just the V?

Sandoz Ativan
134 Replies RSS
I switched pharmacies and was given Sandoz Ativan, I have been having a terrible time- it is like it is creating more anxiety. I switched back to my old pharmacy and am counting the days until I get back to the Milan manufacturer. It has been a horrid 2 weeks. Melatonin helps a great deal with sleep. I started off with Milan and had been on that for 2 years with no problems, I wonder if your body resists another generic brand and you have to adjust. All I know if Milan is what I need and I always get the same manufacturers for all my meds since 12 years ago from CVS- they are very consistent. Be very careful if you switch pharmacies, I learned that all generics are NOT THE SAME. ## Just found this out: Purepac/Activis was bought out by Watson in 2012. In October the FTC made Watson/Pure...

lorazepam generic for ativan
5 Replies RSS
Does this 2 mg lorazepam manufactured by Watson and the same pill manufactured by Qualitest have the same inactive ingredients? ## I was put on the qualitest(so)? brand and after I've been on Watson for years - the Qualitest is a placebo to me. it does NOT work for me. my pharmacist at Rite- aid said they're all the same and I said no they're not and he said that they can't order Watson when they want anymore due to some bogus reason. I think he's lying. I am willing to call the new company of who makes watson and ask them if that's true or not and if I can get a list of chain pharmacies carry Watson - as their main brand and switch pharmacies. why bother fighting with somebody who obviously hasn't been on anxiety medication but yes there is a difference in a...

Inactive ingredients of Qualitest or Leading Pharma Lorazepam
7 Replies RSS
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...

Mp 61 Rounded Oblong Pink Tablets Single Score

MP61 pink tablets, oblong, rounded: LORAZEPAM 2.5mg made by Metwest Pharmaceuticals. Possibly the best lorazepam I ever had! ## It's a strange one isn't it, as the same company makes the 1mg Lorazepam too and they are probably one of the worst I've experimented with. I'd buy the 2.5 mg in a heartbeat but avoid the white round 1mg ones.

Are Lorazepam And Ativan The Same Thing
6 Replies RSS
I am taking Ativan 1 mg. Now my doctor prescribed me lorazepam. I want to know if i stop ativan and start that one is that ok..if those are the same medicines? ## 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. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Yes Ativan is the same thing as Lorazepam, its just a generic brand. Its a Benzodiazepine ## I have taken ativan for years but is extremely expensive. Can I take the generic and get the same results. ## Yea, does it give the same effect like helping you to relax? ## I've been taking Ativan si...
