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...

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 ...

Lorazepam 2.5mg exists, but not in the USA

I filled a prescription for some 2.5mg Lorazepam from Bulgaria about 4 years ago. They were very good. I also got 6mg Bromazepams. Also, a benzo that's not given out in the USA. The closest thing you will get to Bromazepam is Halcyon.

Mylan 2.5mg Lorazepam? Real or fake?

It’s a long story but traveling and needed medication for my anxiety. Have been off Lorazepam for a while but ended up in a situation where I needed to go local for some medication. Ended up with Mylan 2.5mg tabs. They came in a blister pack and seem labeled correctly. Also came in the original Mylan box. All seems okay but being from the US I’m accustomed to seeing the imprint. These have none. Only a score down the middle and white. Needless to say, I’m holding off on taking them. Not looking for a “fix”, looking for medication. First, I didn’t know and can’t find much documentation on Mylab creating a 2.5mg version. At least the website doesn’t mention it. The pack it came in lists the exp date to be in 2020 so it’s not old. The s...

Stay away from this. This causes sleep apnea, respiratory depression, irritability, muscle weakness due to which you may fall and have a fracture. Start reducing the dosage immediately. ## What is Larpose prescribed for? ## Larpose is a brand of Lorazepam manufactured by Cipla in India. Lorazepam is an anticonvulsant used to relieve the symptoms of anxiety and seiz...

633

I have a small round white pill. It has 633 on one side and on the other has a symbol that looks like a ribbon. Any help would be appreciated. ## small white pill 633 one side - looks like moon other side ## 633 on one side - round white - with the "moon" as you call it is more like "half moon" or a letter C; I think the drug is lorazepam - what do you think? ## That moon marking is the logo for Actavis Inc. and they list this tablet as containing 10mgs of Lovastatin, which is most commonly used to help lower cholesterol. NDC: 45963-0633 The R that looked like a ribbon was their prior logo for this same medication. Inactive ingredients may include: Lactose Monohydrate Magnesium Stearate Cellulose, Microcrystalline Starch, Corn Butylated Hydroxyanisole Is there anything e...

Is Actavis Lorazepam the same as Watson?

Most pharmacies sell watson or actavis lorazepam in my area (LA), but I had serious side effects with no calming effect from watson so I returned to Rite Aid after taking one tablet. I heard that watson was taken over by actavis and they are manufactured at the same factory and same medicine. I used to take qualitest and that worked great but was discontinued. I also tried Mylan which was ok but they are discontinuing as they said they don't have inventory and don't know when the last batch is released. Leading pharma does not work for me, causing serious side effects. I visited or called about 30 pharmacies in my area but they only deal with leading pharma, watson and actavis. So I have no option but to try actavis, but if it's the same as watson, I think I can't take i...

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...

Is Bencoprim the same as Lorazepam?

Is bencoprim the same as lorazepam? My Tucson doctor gave me a prescription for lorazepam 16 yrs ago and i went to Nogales, Mexico and asked for lorazepam and they sold me bencoprim and said it was the same as lorazepam. Is this correct? ## Hello, Jayne! How are you? Actually no, Bencoprim is listed as containing Cyclobenzaprine, which is a muscle relaxant, better know under the U.S. trade name Flexeril. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been taking Ativan (1mg) for 15 yrs. 2 months ago, I had a delivery problem with Express-Scripts. Went to my Dr. to get a perscription for Ativan that I could fill locally. The Dr. showed me a form from Express Scripts showing how muc...

Actavis Pharmaceuticals Lorazepam

I have been taking Lorazepam for over a year to help me sleep and as needed. I take .5 mg, have had no problems at all, now Target tells me they now get it from somewhere else. I always stay with the same company if it works. Always have problems when they change.. Can you tell me who still carries this from Actavis and where to get it filled? Thank you!! ## Hello Mary, Unfortunately, no. Nobody will be able to accurately tell you which pharmacy in your area carries which brand of a product, in fact most pharmacies won't tell you if they carry the product unless you are there in person with a signed prescription for that medication. The reason for this is that the pharmacies protect themselves from theft by not providing people with information on what drug they carry and which bran...

LOOKING FOR LORAZEPAM THAT IS EXACTLY LIKE WATSON BRAND

I've been taking Watson Pharmaceuticals Lorazepam and it worked great. Apparently, Actavis just took over Watson, and Watson no longer exists. I'm looking for another bran of Lorazepam that has the same Active & Inactive ingredients as the Watson brand, however, I can't locate the info on line and my pharmacy won't help me. Does anyone know what other manufacturer carries Lorazepam that is exactly the same as the Watson brand. Actavis and Sandoz manufacturer's Lorazepam does not work. ## Well, you're pharmacy won't help, because if the active ingredient is the same, they are considered the same. The inactive ingredients are called such for a reason, they don't affect the drug. How long have you been taking your current dose? It is possible that you...
