Ativan Side Effects Lawyer


The drug Lorazepan is marketed under the names Alzapam, Ativan, Loraz, Lorazepam, Intensol. Ativan is the safest form of this type of drug because it has less of an effect on the liver than other benzodiazepines, which means that a patient can take it in conjunction with other liver affecting medications like birth control pills, anti-abuse drugs, propranolol, and ulcer medications. However, Ativan also has dangerous side effects. If you or a loved one suffer from any of these harmful side effects, stop taking the drug immediately and contact both a doctor and a lawyer. Drugs are meant to improve your health and wellbeing and if Ativan threatens you or makes you sicker you have a right to take your injuries to court.

Ativan is a mild tranquilizer with many different applications, and depending on how it is used it can cause different side effects. Ativan is commonly used to relieve anxiety, to calm manic schizophrenics, and as an intravenous pre-surgery relaxant. Ativan may also be used to cure such diverse maladies as alcohol withdrawal symptoms, to treat serial seizures in children, to promote amnesia, and to relax the severe vomiting of patients after chemotherapy.

The dangerous side effects of Ativan, however, are just as diverse. Many patients suffer from allergic reactions that manifest in difficulty breathing, closing of the throat, and swollen lips, face, and tongue. Some people develop open sores in the mouth and throat or yellowed skin and eyes or a widespread rash. Some patients even suffer from hallucinations, severe confusion, and changes in vision. As you can imagine, these side effects seriously threaten the quality of life of patients using Ativan. In addition, it has negative reactions with many ordinary drugs like antacids.
