How Safe Is Ativan For Patients Who Suffer Anxiety Problems?

by David R. Pharmacy company

Lorazepam is sold under the brand name Ativan. It is a benzodiazepine medication. This medication is used to treat anxiety disorders, trouble sleeping, active seizures, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. It works on the Central Nervous System and produces a calming effect. This drug enhances the effect of certain natural chemicals such as GABA.



Carefully read the medication guide provided by your doctor. Follow the instructions given by your doctor. If you have any doubts, consult your doctor.

You can take lorazepam with or without food as directed by your doctor. Take this medication regularly and at the same time each day to get the most benefits of lorazepam.

Do not stop taking this medication suddenly without talking to your doctor. Suddenly stopping therapy may cause seizures, tremors, muscle cramping, vomiting, and sweating.

Do not decrease the dosage of the drug without consulting your physician. If you abruptly halt the consumption, then it may result in severe withdrawal symptoms like fever, rapid mood changes, nausea, loss of appetite, hallucination and many more.

Sometimes this medication may cause addiction. The risk of addiction is higher if you have a habit of drinking alcohol or if you use any other intoxicants. Therefore, don't consume intoxicants during the treatment.


Side effects of lorazepam (Ativan) include drowsiness, dizziness, change in sexual desires, insomnia, acute amnesia, nausea, vomiting and a few more. If the above mentioned side effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor. Quick attention of a doctor is needed for serious side effects such as mood changes, depression, suicidal thoughts, hallucinations, symptoms of infection like fever, sore throat, amnesia, slurred speech, difficulty talking, change in pulse and heartbeat, and even breathing problems.

A very serious allergic reaction to lorazepam is rare but consult your doctor if you experience allergic reactions such as rash, itching or swelling especially of the face, tongue, and throat, and you can even suffer from severe dizziness, trouble breathing.



Inform your doctor about your allergies because sometimes drugs like lorazepam 1mg may contain some inactive ingredients which can cause allergies.

Tell your doctor about your medical conditions and history, especially kidney disease, liver disease, glaucoma, lung/breathing problems, mental disorders (such as depression, psychosis), personal history of a substance use disorder (such as overuse of or addiction to drugs/alcohol).

Don't do any work that needs alertness because this drug makes you feel dizzy and drowsy and blur your vision. Don't use any intoxicants during the treatment.

Tell your doctor about other medicines that you take because sometimes it may react with other medications that may have a very bad and dangerous effect on you.

Pregnant women should avoid this medication because it passes to the breast milk and can affect the baby.
