Lorazepam 2.5mg Ativan
The use of Ativan Lorazepam 2.5mg is recommended for the treatment of anxiety disorders as well as for the temporary relief of anxiety-related or -associated depressive symptoms. Anxiolytic therapy is typically not necessary for anxiety or tension brought on by daily stress.
The effectiveness of Ativan (lorazepam) in long-term use, or longer than 4 months, has not been well studied in clinical investigations.
The effectiveness of the medicine for each patient should be reviewed by the doctor on a regular basis.
PRESCRIPTION AND ADMINISTRATION
The oral form of ativan (lorazepam). Individualize the dosage, frequency of administration, and length of therapy as needed for best outcomes. Tablets in the dosages of 2 mg are available to help with this.
Given that the normal range is 2 to 6 mg/day in divided doses, take the highest dose before night. However, the daily dose might range from 1 to 10 mg.
Most people need an initial dose of 2 to 3 mg/day administered twice or three times daily for anxiety.
Take a single daily dose of 2 to 4 mg, typically at bedtime, for sleeplessness brought on by anxiety or brief situational stress.
For individuals who are elderly or disabled, we advise starting with 1 to 2 mg/day in divided dosages and adjusting as tolerated.
To help prevent negative effects, gradually increase the Ativan (lorazepam) dosage as necessary. Increase the evening dose before the daytime doses if a greater dosage is required.
Ativan Suspension Or Dosage Reduction
When stopping Ativan or lowering the dosage, perform a slow taper to minimise the risk of withdrawal symptoms. Consider stopping the taper or raising the dosage to the prior tapered dosage level if a patient starts to experience withdrawal symptoms. Afterward, reduce the dosage gradually (see WARNINGS: Dependence And Withdrawal Reactions and Drug Abuse And Dependence: Dependence).
