Lorazepam is also known by the brand name Ativan and is a popular anti-anxiety medication. It is also used in the treatment of epilepsy, insomnia and alcohol withdrawal symptoms during alcohol detoxification. This medication balances nerve activity in the brain and promotes restful sleep. Lorazepam is a strong benzodiazepine that is highly effective. More than 80% of patients see notable positive results just one week into the treatment.
How to Use Lorazepam
Lorazepam must be administered orally and can be taken with or without food. However, if you experience an upset stomach after taking lorazepam without food, it is advised to take it with food thereafter. Lorazepam can be swallowed whole or crushed. The lorazepam dosage is dependent upon a number of factors such as medical conditions and the severity/type of condition being treated. It is recommended that treatment should begin at the lowest dosage. The lorazepam dosage can then be gradually adjusted until the dosage that works best for the user has been reached or identified. The common recommended doses are as follows:
- The usual adult dosage for anxiety is 1mg to 4mg, administered two or three times in a day.
- The usual adult dosage for insomnia caused by stress or anxiety is 1mg to 2mg administered just before bed.
Note that if lorazepam is being administered to an elderly person, the lowest possible dose should be used. This should be administered two to three times a day for anxiety and once only, before bed, for insomnia. If a dose is accidentally missed, take it as soon as you remember, however, if it is nearing time for your next dose, skip the missed dose completely. Do not double dose as a best practice.
Do not suddenly stop taking the medication, especially if the treatment duration was over a longer period of time, at a high dosage. At the end of the treatment, dosages should be gradually reduced. It is best to slowly taper off the medication to avoid withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can also be prevented if the medication is taken as directed and is used over a short period of time (between two to four weeks).
Benefits from Using Lorazepam
When Ativan is used for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia or any other condition, the user will benefit greatly from its calming effects. Anxiety can affect the quality of a person’s life. It can lead to feelings of irritability or restlessness which can result in physical symptoms such as heart palpitations. Lorazepam has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of anxiety symptoms, related disorders and panic attacks. Users can benefit from the tranquillising effect lorazepam has to offer so they can successfully manage their anxiety and improve their overall wellbeing.
As a result of anxiety or panic disorders, a patient can become deprived of restorative sleep. If you are not able to obtain seven to eight hours of restful, uninterrupted sleep, this will adversely affect your overall health. Lorazepam is often recommended as a sleep aid and used in the short term treatment of insomnia. This medication can improve a person’s ability to fall and stay asleep. Additionally, it can prevent the symptoms of anxiety from causing night-time awakenings at intervals.
Another benefit of lorazepam 2mg tablets is that it allows a person to fall asleep within thirty minutes to one hour. It also promotes restful sleep for up to eight hours. Lorazepam is not primarily indicated for the management of pain, however, it can be recommended for people with long-lasting pain. This is because pain often causes insomnia or anxiety and this medication can treat both of these conditions. Lorazepam patients will also enjoy the further benefits that sleep enables. When you have had a full seven to eight hours of undisturbed sleep, you wake up relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated.
You are able to concentrate better, you are more alert and your mood is greatly improved. Your body benefits because sleep is good for your heart and blood pressure. Your mind is able to sort through and commit all that you have learnt during the day to memory and your body can grow and repair. Essentially, your mind and body are able to perform processes that can only occur during restorative sleep. Lorazepam helps patients obtain these benefits.
When to Avoid Lorazepam
Due to medical and/or other conditions, the use of lorazepam is not recommended in certain circumstances. These include the following:
- If a user is pregnant, trying to become pregnant or breastfeeding.
- In combination with alcohol.
- In conjunction with certain opioids, sedative drugs, probenecid (medication used to treat gout), valproic acid (medication used in the treatment of seizures among other conditions).
Lorazepam Side Effects
Lorazepam side effects are usually mild to moderate and very few patients get them. More serious side effects are not common and may occur in less than 1 percent of people. The most common side effects of lorazepam are:
These Ativan side effects are minor and if at all experienced, will usually go away within a few days. Elderly patients should use this medication with extra caution as lorazepam side effects are more likely to be experienced by them due to system sensitivity.
Before You Buy Clonazepam
Lorazepam is a time-tested effective and safe medication to use, and like most medications, produces the best results when taken as directed. As a benzodiazepine it is essential to also follow the recommended dose and course to prevent withdrawal issues and tolerance. Experts also caution that this medication should not be taken with opioids or sedatives as this may cause adverse effects.
