Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
Life without Lorazepam is Possible
Don't let benzos steal your life
Lorazepam (Ativan) is one of the most prescribed medications in the United States and unfortunately this has left too many addicted. Lorazepam is a high-potency, short-acting benzodiazepine that works on GABA, the most calming neurotransmitter in the human nervous system. As the nervous system adapts to the Lorazepam, GABA is down regulated causing an increase in anxiety, fear, insomnia, pain and the inability to engage in life.
Lorazepam, being high-potency and short-acting, has a high addiction potential and therefore is only recommended for short-term use (7-10 consecutive days). Tolerance to Ativan’s effects can occur rapidly. The benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome can cause mild to extreme symptoms, including seizures and psychosis if abruptly discontinued or decreased too quickly. Lorazepam is more likely to cause inter-dose withdrawals compared to longer-acting benzodiazepines. Abrupt withdrawal of Lorazepam can cause seizures and may be life threatening, particularly after long-term use. A gradual dose reduction is necessary for your safety and to minimize the potentially debilitating symptoms.
