Depends: Depends more on the length of time you've been on the Ativan (lorazepam). If you are on a standing dose of 1 or more doses daily then, it may take a bit longer for the medication to get out of your system entirely, say 5-7 days. If you only take doses PRN for anxiety then, you should be OK after 2 days.
