In brief: Lorazepam

is an antianxiety medications.
Although it may cause sedation in some - I would recommend avoiding getting into pattern of using benzodiazapines to sleep.

In brief: Ativan (lorazepam)

It is anxiolytic medication of the benzodiazepine group.
It reduces anxiety & relaxes muscles to an extent, but is not a hypnotic or sleep medicine.
