How Long Does Ativan Stay In Your System
6 to 8 hours active: Ativan (lorazepam) is a mid range benzodiazepine with an active period of 6-8 hours of sedation. After 6-8 hours, Ativan passes again through the liver. Now the liver breaks the Ativan into 2 parts- each part has no psycho-active effects. Lower dosages are used for geriatric adults and medically debilitated patients. Their bodies are slower to metabolize Ativan into its 2 inactive parts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm on .5 mg of ativan (lorazepam) daily. Can i just go off it? Also how long does it stay in my system if i wanted to have a drink? Been on it for a year.
Do NOT stop w/o Doc: It is usually recommended not to use this drug for longer than 4 months without clear reasons. It is always recommended that the drug be tapered with the help of a physician. Ask that physician to tell you when you might be safe to have any alcohol. The risk seems to be that the combo will be dangerously much stronger. So, if & when you do drink - have very low proof & a very small amount. Best! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I took 3 20mg tablets of prednisone ended up in the er about 2 hrs after(im allergic) gave 2 shots benadryl (diphenhydramine) & ativan how long til Pred.out of system?
Unlikely allergic: I presume your reactions were from the prednisone which may cause hyperactivity, depression, anxiety, insomnia, palpitation, flushing occasionally in a few people when given at this dose. I would expect these side effects to decline after about a day and subside altogether in 2-3 days. The problem may also be from the disease for which the prednisone was prescribed. Not allergic ...Read more

Ativan (lorazepam): Two mgs of ativan (lorazepam) is a strong dose and it's effect may be dissipated after 12 hours but there is some possibility that there may be some interaction with alcohol after 17 hours if you're a slow metabolizer.

I have had two urine screens, both did not show any benzos in my system but I take 1 mg. ativan every night for the past two months. Any insight?
Since i switched from ativan (lorazepam) 6mg back to clonazepam 2mg i don't have to take 2mg somedays just .5mg is because of the ativan (lorazepam) leaving my system?
Klonopin (clonazepam) is more: Potent than ativan, (lorazepam) and this varies a great deal between people. However, if you have a history of seizures, and you are on a significant dose of benzodiazepines, sudden reductions may increase the chance of having more seizures. There are better ways to treat anxiety over the long haul than using benzos - psychotherapy (esp cognitive behavioral therapy or cbt), antidepressants and other meds. ...Read more
How many half lives does it take for ativan (lorazepam) to be out of your system for a urine drug screen?
My drug screen results were negative, why? I take percocet and ativan (lorazepam) on a daily basis, my screen results did not find them in my system. Knowing that i take my meds daily, i cannot understand why they did not show.
Many possiblereasons: Oxycodone may not show up on a drug screen unless the screen is specifically geared to that drug. Ativan (lorazepam) should show up, but it depends on the dose. If you are on a low dose (0.5 mg a day) it may be negative. Also, if you are drinking large amounts of water, it dilutes your urine to where drugs may be below the detection limit of the test. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
