Flumazenil is a benzodiazepine antagonist given *as part of* a treatment for Ativan (and other benzodiazepines) overdose in *hospitalized* patients. Flumazenil itself has its own risks and these risks should be considered by the prescriber.
Does Valium and Ativan have same chemical make up?
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.
