In addition to treating anxiety, Ativan is also used to help patients with irritable bowel syndrome, epilepsy, insomnia, nausea, and vomiting from cancer treatment. Ativan can also help control agitation caused by alcohol withdrawal.
Side effects of Ativan may include the following:
Changes in appetite
Restlessness or excitement
Changes in sex drive or ability
More serious side effects may include the following:
Persistent, fine tremor
Inability to sit still
Severe skin rash
Yellowing of skin or eyes
Although the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) classifies benzodiazepines such as Ativan as Schedule IV controlled substances, meaning they have a low potential for abuse and a low risk of dependence, some physical dependence has been noted in just a few weeks, even with low doses.
An analysis in 2018 also revealed that drug misuse accounts for approximately 17% of benzodiazepine use among U.S. adults. Benzos cause surges of dopamine, which is partly responsible for how we feel pleasure.
Possible short-term health effects may include the following:
Problems with movement and memory
Lowered blood pressure
The long-term health effects of Ativan misuse are not known.
The sudden reduction of dopamine in the brain is the leading cause of benzo withdrawal symptoms. More severe reactions or withdrawals may also be more likely when taking potent drugs for long periods or with other medications.
During Ativan withdrawal, you may experience trouble concentrating, sweating, and physical aches. Contributing factors to your Lorazepam withdrawal symptoms may include the following:
Co-occurring mental health issues
Misusing other drugs or alcohol
After abstaining from a substance of use for weeks or months, you may experience symptoms called Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS). Post-acute Ativan withdrawal symptoms may include the following:
Loss of sex drive
If withdrawal symptoms become severe, our physician may prescribe other medications on a case-by-case basis, depending on the type and severity of your symptoms. Suppose your original symptoms return once you stop taking Ativan. In that case, our doctor may also prescribe a different class of medications, or other therapies, to help manage those symptoms during withdrawal. For example, flumazenil (Romazicon) has been shown to help with severe withdrawal symptoms, and other drugs, like buspirone (BuSpar), can help if you suffer from severe anxiety symptoms.
Other therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and counseling, can help you manage symptoms without relying on other drugs. Managing symptoms is essential to help prevent the recurrence of Ativan misuse.
The Ativan withdrawal timeline begins quickly, typically between one to four days after the last use and can last up to 14 days.
Our medically monitored Ativan withdrawal and detox program will help you stop using Ativan and manage your withdrawal symptoms safely and without pain. Soon, you’ll be on the path to recovery.
