Certainly: Magnesium is present in a very wide range of foods so if it interacted with Ativan (lorazepam) there would be hundreds of foods unsafe to eat! taking magnesium can reduce anxiety ; help insomnia ; might reduce your need for ativan (lorazepam). The best-absorbed forms are magnesium glycinate ; taurate. See http://bit.Ly/1dpai09 for more on magnesium and health.
