Ativan is a sedative/hypnotic agent. It can cause respiratory depression which means you stop breathing. Please seek help immediately if you or someone you know has taken an overdose or is planning on taking an overdose. This is not something to play around with at all!!!!!

6mgs of ativan equals how many mgs of clonazepam?

Hard to say

Lorazepam
since it depends if we are talking about acutely, where it takes twice as much clonazepam to equal the clinical effects of lorazepam. However, once clonazepam reaches it's steady state, it is actually twice a potent as lorazepam. So, initially you might need 3 mg of clonazepam four times a day for the first day to feel the same effects, but you quickly have to reduce down to 1 mg three time/d.

How many hours after taking until Ativan can be detected in urine?

Benzos

Urine
Benzos can be detected up to eight weeks commonly in urine tests. The standard answer is one to six weeks with the variation due to chronic use versus one time use. It is easily detected for a very long time in many cases.

Dr. Lori Poling answered:

After taking 1 dose of .50 mg of Ativan, how many days do I need to wait before safely consuming alcohol?

Ativan

Alcohol
Ativan's usual duration of action is around 6 hours. Although the drug may still remain since it has a half life of 10-20 hrs. That means the longer you take this medication, the longer it remains in your system. Make sure to limit consumption to as little as possible once in a while because these both are depressants.

I've tried many anti-depressants for anxiety & my experience has been that side effects are much worse than Ativan or Xanax,. Agree?

Antidepressants

Feeling_anxious
Agree. All medications have side effects of their own but beneficial effects of antidepressants in the long run are more.

How long will it take to wean off 1mg of ativan per day? Taken this for many years . How do Ido this? Already having bad panick attacks.. Not started

Panic and Ativan

It sounds like you're not ready to wean from Ativan just yet, if already having bad panic attacks. There are much better and less habit-forming medicines for panic than Ativan, although it certainly can help with acute anxiety. Many antidepressants also have anti-anxiety/anti-panic affects, and would be safer -- & then you could taper your Ativan. Please see a psychiatrist about this.
