Is lorazepam the same as a Valium?
No: lorazepam is marketed as Ativan, Valium is a brand name for diazepam. Both are benzos though
Valium (Diazepam) and Ativan (Lorazepam) are both benzodiazepine drugs. They are similar, but not the same.
is it ok to take Valium and lorazepam together
No, Valium and Ativan are different medications with different active ingredients. Valium is a trade name (brand name) for the drug "diazepam" and Ativan is a trade name for the drug "lorazepam." However, both diazepam (Valium) and lorazepam (Ativan) belong to the same class of sedative hypnotic prescription medications known as benzodiazepines. Accordingly, diazepam and lorazepam have similar chemical/molecular structures and share many of the same therapeutic properties.
You can give Diazepam (Valium) next day after you give Lorazepam (Ativan). Lorazepam is short acting and diazepam is long acting.
Valium's generic name is Diazepam, and it can only be prescribed by its generic name within the U.K. on N.H.S. prescriptions. If a sporting event were conducting a 'Doping Screen' for the use of Benzodiazepines, BOTH Lorazepam and Diazepam (Valium) could be traced, as chemically, they are 'cousins.'
Valium = diazepam Ativan = lorazepam Xanax = alprazolam Klonopin = clonazepam
For what condition or disorder would a doctor prescribe both Valium AND ativan?
Clonazepam, Alprazolam, Lorazepam, Diazepam, Oxazepam (klonopin, xanax, valium, etc.)
Lorazepam (brand name Ativan) is a Benzodiazepine. Valium (Diazepam), and Xanax (Alprazolam) are examples of other Benzodiazepines. If Lorazepam is being used to decrease anxiety, it can also be classified as an anxiolytic. Hydrocodone is a narcotic painkiller. They are totally different, except for the fact that they are both addictive.
It it possible to take Valium (diazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam) at the same time however it is uncommon for both to be prescribed. However some doctors will prescribe Valium for continuous use, typically three times daily, and may give some Ativan to take as needed or panic attacks or insomnia. Keep in mind that Valium is a far less more potent drug than Ativan, 0.5- 1 mg is equivalent to 10 mg of Valium.
Valium (diazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam) will not show up as the same drug. Valium undergoes extensive hepatic (liver) metabolism by CYP2C19, a component of an enzyme system. When it becomes metabolized several active metabolites form, primarily desmethyldiazepam (Nordazepam), oxazepam, and temazepam. These active metabolites are also benzodiazepine class drugs. Nordazepam is available in some countries, Oxazepam is best known as Serax and Serepax, and temazepam is a commonly used hypnotic best known as Restoril. 98.5%… Read More
NO. They are not chemically related and have entirely different effects. Ativan is the brand name for lorazepam, a tranquilizer closely related to Valium. Darvocet is a combination of the synthetic analgesic propoxyphene and Tylenol.
Lorazepam is the name of the drug in Lorazepam. There are no other medications in that drug. Acetaminophen is the same drug as Tylenol. There isn't any in Lorazepam.
Xanax (alprazolam) Klonopin (clonazepam) Valium (diazepam) Ativan (lorazepam) Serax (oxazepam) Librium (chlordiazepoxide) BuSpar (buspirone)
The family of antianxiety drugs known as benzodiazepines includes alprazolam (Xanax), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), diazepam (Valium), and lorazepam (Ativan).
I think you are thinking of Lorazepam, which is Ativan. Loratadine is not Lorazepam. It's Claritin. It's an allergy medication. Generally it's over the counter. Benzodiazepines are things like Valium, Klonopin, Xanax. Loratadine is totally different.
Definitely not the same.
There is no real interaction between those drugs. However, Valium might reduce memory and acuteness.. which is not very compatible with dementia treatment. Some report cases show that Valium might reduce Sinemet effectiveness, if you see these effect, you might ask your doctor to stop Valium. Valium shouldn't be used with older people. There is more interesting benzodiazepins available.. (lorazepam, oxazepam, temazepam) for these people.
No its a sleeping pill basically.....like valium/diazepam ...newer one with shorter action..... not a narcotic like morphine... tranquilizer with short to medium duration of action.
You can overcome anxiety with autism using tranquilizers such as Xanax (alprazolam), Ativan (lorazepam), Valium (diazepam), or Klonopin (clonazepam).
It is the same thing. Diazepam is the active ingredient in Valium. Valium is a brand name.
Yes. Tranxene (clorazepate) and lorazepam (Ativan) are both benzodiazepines (minor tranquilizers)
No. Zoloft is Setraline Hydrochloride and Valium is .. Diazepam.
Valium is the brand name. Diazepam is the generic name for the active drug. They are exactly the same thing.
Because Valium is in the same family. Generic name for Valium is Diazepam. See the similarity?
Benzodiazepines like Xanax (Alprazolam) Ativan (Lorazepam) Klonopin (Clonazepam) Restoril (Temazepam) Valium (Diazepam) usually prescribed for anxiety, insomnia and seizures.
No, but they are both in the same class of drugs called Benzodiazapines. Valium is a longer acting drug than xanax
do klonopene and Valium show the same result on a drug screen
yes but different milligrams.
Valium, also known as diazepam, is in the class of medications called benzodiazepines. Although they work on the same receptor as barbiturates and have similar effects clinically, they are not the same class of medication. No. Valium (diazepam) is a benzodiazepine.
They are in the same class of drugs; therfore, they have similar effects. However, Valium is much longer lasting than Xanax.
It depends on what your metabolism and tolerance is. If you don't usually do a whole lot of benzodiazepines like Ativan, Valium, Restoril, Klonopin, etc., one could just die from that much.
No, Darvocet is an opiate painkiller and Valium is a benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety.
Yes, they are the same!
Both Ativan (Lorazepam) and Valium (Diazepam) are in the same class of drugs called "Benzodiazepines." They all act in similar (but distinct) ways. In the brain, these chemicals bind to specific "benzodiazepine" sites on the GABAa receptor protein, essentially increasing the effects of the neurotransmitter GABA-- which is known mostly for its calmative, relaxing feature. Most likely, Ativan and Valium will show up the same in a urine test. That is, the results will indicate… Read More
NO...medicines are prescribed by the patienties wight ...
No. Viagra prepares you for sexual activity. Valium puts you to sleep.
In a word, no!
nothing, same drug marketed under a generic brand. Same.
Yes, Ativan (lorazepam) is in fact a benzodiazepine. It falls under the short/intermediate acting benzodiazepines, meaning that it enters and exits your body more quickly than say Valium (diazepam) which is a long acting benzodiazepine.
No. Meclizine is antihistaminic drug and diazepam (Valium) belong to benzodiazepine/antianxiety group of drugs.
No, phenobarbital is a barbiturate, which are not really used by anyone. Paramedics and other medical professions use benzodiazepines now which do the same things with less of a side effect. Benzodiazepines are muscle relaxers used mainly to stop seizures, but also used to help pt with anxiety. The three main benzo used are Valium (diazepam) Ativan (lorazepam) and Versed (midazolam).
No. Zoloft is an SSRI antidepressant. Valium is a benzodiazepine. Most drug tests check for benzodiazepines.
Lorazepam has a quick release which will induce effects between 45mins to 90mins depending on weight, mood, and if this med is taken on a full/empty stomach. However for me (someone whos been on it for 4months) taking lorazepam on an empty stomach hits a few minitues sooner though it could upset your stomach. Lorazepam peaks within 1.5-2.00 hrs, and effects are generally felt for a good 3-6hrs. The half life of lorazepam 10-20hrs is… Read More
loratab is an opiate, same brans as vicodin, lorazapam is a benzo. two totally different drus.
Yes. Zantac (ranitidine) is used for GERD, and other stomach issues. Ativan (lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine, used for anxiety and seizures. There are no drug/drug interactions with these medications.
actually i think 0.5 of klonopin is equal to 10 mgs of valium, so in retrospect klonopin wins!
No. Valium contains Diazepam, which is a benzodiazepine. Meprobamate is a carbamate derivative, which shares many of the same effects as barbiturates. Both are used as an anxiolytic.
