Rarely alone: Ativan (lorazepam) by mouth is fairly safe. If given by IV it can stop breathing. However, if Ativan (lorazepam) is added to alcohol, narcotics, or other sedatives, the combination can be fatal. Chronic use can lead to addition and dependence on more powerful and potentially fatal drugs.
