The Anxiety and Depression Association of America estimates that around forty million American adults or 18% of the US population live with anxiety.
Most of these patients are treated with anxiety-reducing drugs like lorazepam, a short-acting tranquilizer marketed under the brand name Ativan. Ativan (lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine, a class of drugs often referred to as CNS (central nervous system) depressants. Other benzodiazepines are Klonopin (clonazepam), Valium (diazepam), Librium (chlordiazepoxide), and Xanax (alprazolam).
Ativan is prescribed for the treatment of anxiety, short-term sleeplessness, and seizures. Ativan is used off-label to manage alcohol withdrawal, vomiting, and nausea related to chemotherapy, agitation, catatonia, irritable bowel syndrome, and numerous other conditions. It can be given to aid in relaxation prior to surgery or other dental or medical procedures. This is referred to as pre-med.
Due to their potential for lorazepam abuse and other benzodiazepine drugs, they are designated “controlled substances” in the US and are subject to government regulation. It is crucial to be aware of the possible side effects of Ativan in the event that you experience any. Immediately visit your doctor if this occurs.
Lorazepam is only available with a valid prescription. It is available in tablet and liquid form for swallowing. It can also be administered intravenously in a hospital setting for seizures and fits. It is also sold under the trade name Ativan.
