In brief: Not usually

Ativan (lorazepam) is not a treatment for pulmonary hypertension, but may help anxiety that is present in the person who has it.
If your anxiety is chronic, it's not the best treatment. If that's your situation, ask your doctor for further help or referral to psychiatrist or psychotherapist.
