Yes it is possible to get a DUI while taking the medication Ativan. It is classified as a Schedule 4 drug. If the driver is impaired and the officer can prove that then it is possible to get a DUI.

Driving Under the Influence. It means you got caught driving drunk.
how long do it take for ativan to leave your system if yo only took 2 1mg before going to the dentist
Answer Ativan is a benzodiazepine (Xanax, Valium, Librium, etc.) It acts by binding tightly to GABAA receptors in the brain (the same ones stimulated by alcohol) which …potentiates the inhibitory effect of the available GABA, leading to sedatory and anxiolytic effects. GABA is actually an amino acid that is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in humans. It controls excitability/relaxation and also muscle tone (which is why Valium is sometimes prescribed for muscle spasms). Basically, Ativan wraps tightly around these GABA receptors and elicits a sense of well-being and lowers anxiety mimicking and enhancing the body's neurotransmiiters that control stress and anxiety at these receptors. (Ativan is also used for seizures but I'm not sure about the pharmokinetics there.) Answer I do not know the chemical or scientific way that ativan works. I take it when I am having severe anxiety or panic attacks. It slows down my thinking process enough for me to handle what is happening. About 20 minutes after I take it I am so calm that I usually go to sleep, though. (Think happy, drooling stages) I also take klonapin, another anxiety medicine on an as-needed basis. It isn't nearly as strong as Ativan, so I take that at work instead. I can't tell you how many times Ativan has saved my life, literally. Sorry I don't have a technical answer for you.
The key to winning any case is retaining a good lawyer. Find a lawyer who specializes in DUI/DWI cases: a lawyer who only defends DUI/DWI cases. The best way to find a good DU…I lawyer is to ask a police officer. Another way is to go to the court house, attend some DUI trials and listen to what other officers are saying about the defending lawyers. Yes, eavesdrop in on their conversations if necessary.
2 days is not necessarily true benzos can stay in your system for over a month if used daily over a period of time
to the before you get stopped get a designated driver just not worth risking it these days.but if do get stopped , put yourself together cause most likely you are going to jai…l for like 6hrs at least before bonding. once you get over that reality now you are fighting not only with cop but the state where you are what i mean is that the cop is collecting all the evidence he can against you for your court, i suggest be cool to him and refuse any perlimenary excersise since you are probably on camera "state evidence" so just tell him no and he will be persistent once you hit the jail or before he will want you to take a breath test refuse that "evidence for state" he will scare you that you will lose you liscense but you will anyways . once you get out of jail its the cops word against yours and no solid proof . then get a lawyer that does dui's not one that will work on a plea deal "lazy lawyer " is how i beat mine Answer: There are many weak points that your lawyer can use to get you out from a DUI case. There are some probable error in investigation that can be used in court against the charges and good lawyer can easily get you out. These flaws can be in blood test analysis, assessment of charges etc. I have added a link in "Related link" of strategies that can be utilized to win your DUI case.
After getting arrested for DUI it possible for someone in the legal system to erase a DUI from the system and make it so its like it never happened?
Not without a court order. Or risking losing their job and facing criminal charges.
valporic acid supposedly doubles the plasma concentration of lorazepam (Ativan), which I believe is in Depakote, a mood stabilizing/anti-epileptic medication. I am not 100% ce…rtain. Grapefruit also potentiates some benzos, but I don't know if Ativan is one of them.
Ativan does come in an injectable form, usually used in hospitals for acute seizure management or for pre-operative sedation. It must be kept refrigerated. For anyone thinking… about crushing and injecting the pills, don't do it. It's full of binders that may cause a particularly dangerous emboli. It doesn't work anyway if "work" is interpreted as getting high. stick with taking it by mouth or letting it dissolve under the tongue.
There is really no way out of it .If your lucky you will be charged with reckless driving but you will have the same amount of fines DUI school, 1 year probation, car impoun…d , mothers against drunk driving impact meetings and counseling . Answer: If you get arrested for DUI and DWI, u will have to clarify yourself in the court. To convince and clear your case you need a good attorney. There are some points that you must consider before contacting and hiring a DUI lawyer. Like you must check your lawyer's previous win record, inquire about his education, fees etc. You can find a detailed check list in the link that i have submitted in the "Related Link".

It was introduced to treat anxiety, insomnia, and seizures, and also to sedate aggressive patients.
Ativan has a half life of 12-16 hours which means that almost all of it is removed from the bloodstream in a couple of days. Ativan is converted into inactive metabolites. In …case of a patient with renal failure the inactive metabolites may accumulate but in most cases they won't interfere with the drug's action.
