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...

leading pharma 2mg lorazepam

I am really confused with everyone posts about the leading brand lorazepam I take 2mg and have been on lorazepam generic form for 25 years I've taken every single kind from Watson to now leading it looks like the sugary taste is everyone's problem here such bad reviews about this company is obserred they are no different than any other generic lorazepam they work the same the only difference in this pill is that it's inactive ingredient contains potassium and that's why the pill taste like sugar but my point here is that if are a longtime user of benzos you people would have all ended up withdrawing and possibly seizing if the pill really didn't contain the main ingredient and the er doctor would have been the first to report this pharmacy if your illness had anythin...

How can I tell if my Lorazepam is a sugar pill?

Lorazepam /2 mg / round white / 2 / EP 906. it tastes like sugar and doesn't seem to be helping ## i have been taking lorazepam for several years and got a new script from a different pharmacy and I haven't felt the same since i have started to remember my dreams and having panic attacks since i started this new script also they almost dissolve instantly and taste sweet i feel like i am not on any meds now so i don't know if the pills are real. any help would be grateful thank you ## I've been taking Lorazepam for about a year, just recently I started just putting it under my tongue it melts quickly and it is sweet but it's always been like that since I've taking them and it does what it's supposed to for me. ## The taste is actually irrelevant and doesn'...

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...

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 ...

White oblong pill scored with I N on one side

Small, white, oblong (rather than oval) pill scored and imprinted with I N or N I on one side - I am in Canada, in case that makes a difference in the appearance. ## white, oblong (rectangular with edges rounded) pill, scored in the middle, and imprinted on one side with and I and N (or N and I) - Canadian - trying to identify ## Oh, here's the post. This gentleman reached me by email. None of my searches have turned up anything for this. This does seem to be Canadian in origin, but I have yet to make a positive I.D. I even reached out to a pharmacist in Canada but they were stumped as well. Does anyone else know? ## the imprint might be a lower case L, i.e. l or an upper case i, i.e. I ## I think this may be lorazepam.I have similar pills and in Canada ## Mbnc can you post back wit...

Are pills still good after getting wet?

Just a simple question, if a tablet is not labled to be dissolved in water, can you disolve it in water anyway to make it easier to swallow? It's not a capsule baring in mind so it's easy dissolvable. ## Hello, Vama! How are you? It would be better to just cut the tablet into smaller pieces to make it easier to swallow. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I accidentally washed my white round 1mg lorazepam's in the washer they were in a zip lock bag apparently a cheap one lol the medicine is all stuck together can I dry them out? An Will they still be safe to take I only take little pieces when I take them anyway so can I still dry them an take little pieces? ## I got my lyricas wet in water they swelled up..they are red gell based are they still good they did not come...

small white round pill ZS157

These ZS157 pills were in my bottle of lorazepam. The size is nearly the same as the lorazepam, but not quite. That's how I noticed. I also discovered a lot of ZS157s. I have not yet identified these. I also take pindolol, which are also small round and white pills, confusion reigns. I finally dumped out the lorazepam bottle and looked at every pill under my sewing magnifying glass. Can you tell me what the ZS157s are? These pills were mixed in with lorazepam, and heaven only knows how many of them I've taken in good faith. What should I do about this? ## Is the marking SZ 197? If so, they are also Lorazepam, they are manufactured by Sandoz Inc., and they list them as being 0.5mg tablets. NDC: 00781-5371 Occasionally, if they run short of the product from one manufacturer, a pha...

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 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...

Inactive ingredients of Qualitest or Leading Pharma Lorazepam

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...
