Lorazepam Overview

Lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan among others, is a benzodiazepine medication.[3] It is used to treat anxiety disorders, trouble sleeping, active seizures including status epilepticus, alcohol withdrawal, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting.[3] It is also used during surgery to interfere with memory formation and to sedate those who are being mechanically ventilated.[3][7] While it can be used for severe agita...

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...

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...

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). 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 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? No, I scrolled through several pages of pill images and didn't find any Lorazepam that are purple, or even bl...

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? ...

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. Discuss/Possible-New-Purepac-Lorazepam-233726.htm I hope this helps! :) ## they work fine....
