little white pill persribed for nerves ## I am taking a half of a 1 mg Ativan pill for sleeping. Can this small amount become addictive? ## Ativan contains the active ingredient Lorazepam, this is a Benzodiazepine and these can be highly addictive. However, if you are using it as prescribed, then what you are really going to have to deal with is dependence, rather than addiction. Dependence occurs when your body becomes used to and reliant upon some substance. This can happen with anything you ingest regularly, even a routine morning cup of orange juice. If you stop ingesting it, suddenly, they you will experience some withdrawal symptoms, but nothing as severe as if you were abusing the medication. Some of this medications most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness... ...

Ativan problems
3 Replies RSS
I've been on 1mg Ativan for at least 15 years that I take at night before bed. I tried to quit a couple of years ago and ended up in the doctors office 2 days later only to learn I can't just stop taking it. I'm just thankful I didn't take 3 a day as prescribed. What is the best way to stop taking this medication? ## Check out the Ashton manual. Unfortunately benzodiazepines surprise patients with how difficult they can be to withdraw and most prescribers don't give informed consent. Good luck. ## Usually you have to do a very gradual taper to safely stop taking this class of medications. Your doctor should be able to help you set up a safe tapering schedule for you. But do not try stopping it cold turkey, again, as that can create the risk of dangerous seizures, acc... ...

Ativan tapering
1 Reply RSS
Just wondering the best way to taper off Ativan. I have been on Ativan for 3weeks now, was put on for anxiety 1mg. 4x a day. My doctor told me to take this much for a week and then taper to 1mg 3x a day the next week and that is when I would see him again. Well I did what he told me to do and the first week it really helped me and then I cut it down to 3 a day but by the 3rd day of tapering down to 3 A day I started feeling a little shaky and a bit Anxious. I saw my doctor 2days after this and was really quite emotional. He stated he was hoping that this would take care of my anxiety and that I could start tapering but it did not look like that was going to happen. He put me on lexapro and I have now been on this for a week and still taking Ativan per my doctor until lexapro kicks in. I... ...

According to the FDA information, Ativan tablets are regular release formulations, so cutting or breaking one is safe to do, as long as your doctor approves. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Do you regularly have stomach problems? This medication isn't known to be very harsh on the stomach, but they can all irritate to some degree, whether cut or left intact. ...

can you take adivan and high blood pressure medicine together ## Well, it would depend on the specific blood pressure medications you are taking.

the difference between 1mg ativan & 1mg xanax
2 Replies RSS
i have recently been prescribed ativan which seems to help some,but i am wondering if xanax would work better ## they are roughly equivalent, but Xanax hits the nervous system faster, and gets out of you system faster. Both good for panic, crappy for sleep, wouldn't use either for persistant symptoms of anxiety. ## Just to add some further information.... A lot of it can also depend on the individual involved, one may not work for them, while another might, so sometimes it's really just a matter of trial and error to see which medication works for you. I'm going to include the link for information on them, in case anyone else is looking for more details and wants to know which ones are available. You can learn more Benzodiazepine details here. Are there any questions or comm... ...

Ativan Shape And Color
6 Replies RSS
what is the color of ativan 1mg ## The way a pill looks is entirely up to the whit and whim of the company making it, so there may be many different (1mg) Ativan pills on the market that aren't the same color or shape as what you might be expecting. Locating the imprint on the pill in question is the most effective way to determine every detail about it. Do you know what the markings on this specific pill are, or even the name of the manufacturer by chance? If you do, I can easily look it up for you and determine the color of the pill among whatever other attributes it possess. Hope this helps! ## white oblong a"v" on one side.and on other side I believe its6469 THANK youwas told its Ativan but not sure of strength. ## Hi Paul, The pill in description with that marking is ac... ...

risperdal with ativan
3 Replies RSS
My psychiatrist prescribed me 1mg of Ativan as well as 2 mg of Risperdal. Everything that I've read says you shouldnt take them together. I took my Risperdal about an hour ago but I'm having panic attacks. is it safe to take the ativan? ## I took those 2 medications together for about 8 months and never had any problems. I was also taking Lamictal and Lexapro at the same time. I hope this helps! ## @Amanda, I just wanted to add that according to's drug interaction checker, there aren't any discrepancies/interactions listed between Risperdal and Ativan. So based off that, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to take them together, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. One thing to keep in mind though is that these medications do tend to af... ...

I want to know which is stronger. The Ativan or Xanax? Which one lasts the longest? I have really bad anxiety so I wanted to know which one is better to take? ## Xanax is stronger than Ativan, it is actually twice as strong. You only need a half a milligram of it to equal each 1mg of the Ativan. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability. However, the only way to know which one will work best for you is by trying them. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

My doctor had upped my meds from 1mg of Ativan to suppose to be 5mg it is round yellow pill I think there might of been a mistake. Thank you ## Yes, I do believe some mistake has occured. Ativan, which contains the active ingredient Lorazepam is not available in a 5mg dosage. The tablets are only available in 0.5mgs, 1mg and 2mgs. There is a round, off-white tablet in the 0.5mg dosage, that has an M on one side and the numbers 321 on the other. A 2mg tablet that is slightly off-white with an R over 774 on one side. Another off-white 2mg has the marking of MP over 96. Do any of these match the markings on the tablet you have? If not, please post back with the markings and I can look it up for you, so see what it contains. ...

Possible Side Effects of ALPRAX 0.50MG, ZOLPEACE 5MG, AND ATIVAN 1MG
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking Alprax0.50mg for the past ten years OD. But now i am not having deep sleep as i am a spondyloarthropathy patient. As per our Doctor advice i am taking Zolpeace 5mg OD along with Alprax0.50mg. But there is no effect. Along with these two tablets i am also taking Ativan 1mg OD. Will there be any side effect on this?. Please give your advice. ## Definitely there are side effects. But now ur body is habitual of these drugs. In later stages as the time progresses you need to increase the dosage of these drugs to get the same effects. Memory loss is a very common side effect, drowsiness, sleeping disorder, sudden unconsciousness, headache & many more. Better to avoid taking these drugs. Try to get sleep naturally & try to spend more time in office or some other work... ...

As for the Kolonapin, valium and ativan. Over the past 4 years, ive used all three. First was valium 10mg tid. It help some with the anxiety but not enuf. It also helped a bit as a muscle relaxer. But my then dr changed me to ativan 1mg, tho he was against it. I changed dr's in sept 2013 who is a general prac, but also a pain mgmt dr. He didnt like the ativan either, mostly cuz I was getting 150 pillz a month so he recently ( dec 2013) switched me to kolonapin 1mg four times daily. I havent noticed major difference between them but so far the kolonapin is working best. As for pain, they only increase meds and dosage. Started with vicodin 5, 7.5 & 10mgs. Then old dr switched me to methodone 10mg 3x daily which didnt work at all, hence reason for changing drs. We looked at my inju... ...
