Ativan 2 Mg

If I have been taking Ativan 2mg 4 times per day for 8 years and it is obviously lost it's affectiveness, would changing to Xanax 2mg 4 times a day be the next step? Valium does not help at all. (Take Ativan for PTSD) I've worked in the medical field for 20 years and was not aware that Xanax came in a 2mg pill......seems like a lot!) ## No, it probably wouldn't make a difference, there is no dose conversion between the Lorazepam in the Ativan and the Alprazolam in the Xanax, they are considered equivalent to each other. There is, however, a 3mg extended release Xanax available. From other posts that have been made here, it seems that a lot of people that have grown tolerant to their current dosage have had success switching to the extended release. Some in the same dosage an... ...

Ativan and Norco

If I take 0.5 mgs of Ativan every night before bed, is it safe to take 5/325 hydrocodone-acetaminophen when I get my tooth pulled out? I'm scared I'll have breathing problems. ## Is the dentist and your doctor aware that you will be taking both? They do tend to cause depression of the central nervous system, according to FDA reports, so yes, there is a risk of your experiencing shallow breathing, lowered heart rate, and lowered blood pressure. It really depends on what is safe for you, and only a physician can advise you on that. If you are very sensitive to medications, it might be best for you to stop the Ativan, while taking the Norco.

1 Mg Ativan 10mg cyclobenzaprine

Hi there ,I am going for a Ultra Sound guided Breast Core Needle Biopsy tomorrow after noon. The doctor had prescribed me 2 tablets of Ativan at .5 mg each. I had taken two before, and nothing happened. There was no drowsiness, nothing. I am extremely terrified about tomorrow, and need something for pain and anxiety.

Ativan / Lorazepam 1 mg for 2 weeks and stopped

Hello! I got a prescription from my psychiatrist for 1 mg of Lorazepam for 2 weeks, then to stop it. I took it religiously every day at random times (from 9 pm - 11 pm depending on whether I was available to drink it at the supposed 10pm). A bit of my background: Reasons for the prescription? - To help me sleep. I was sleeping less and less and had some awful palpitations of my left eyelid. I felt tired due to the lack of sleep. I’ve never had any serious trouble getting to sleep, I’d normally sleep from 10 pm to 5 or 6 am and was good to go. 4 weeks ago I started feeling anxiety; anyways I really understand how bad it gets but in my case it was not drastic. However, my sleeping time was being decreased from 12 am to 4 or 5 am. To someone who was used to a certain pattern I ... ...

Tapering off Ativan

I have been tapering off of Ativan (name brand) 2 mg per day going on 8 days now. The cost is one big reason I decided to do so (now $700 for a one months supply) and also I would like to be set free from this. I have been on this medication for over 25+ years. Has anyone had success getting completely off of this medication? Do you recommend something else to replace it that would be a safer choice. I have had a severe panic/anxiety disorder for a long time. I used to take 3 mg, but felt almost normal lately on 2 mg....until the cost went up. I have tried cognitive behavioral therapy in the past. (The best part about it was just having someone to talk to about my anxiety/panic, etc). ## Hello, Flowers! How are you? Please don't do too rapid of a taper, because that creates the risk... ...

If there was a slight difference and you've been taking it for over a month now, it makes perfect sense, because that is about how long it would take for your body to adjust to the new dosage.

Using Ativan for pain

Ativan has been used along with opiates for pain control in burn patients and people with injuries that require long term pain control for a long time in other countries. Sadly not so much in the U.S. because we fall behind in the pain control medical treatment. I am Trauma Surgeon from originally outside the U.S. and for the last 20 years we have been using this method of treatment. Ativan should never be taken at more than 2 mg PO unless you are in the hospital with constant medical supervision (BP monitor, O2 sat, ECG monitor, etc.) especially with opiates. I usually start at .5 to 1 mg depending on the weight of the patient and the tolerance build up. The reason being you can build up a tolerance to Ativan very quickly and it will do no good in the treatment of your pain in a very s... ...

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.
