User Comments about Lorazepam
14 Aug 2013 Provides me a good 7-8 hours of sleep in periods when I'm waking up in the middle of the night and could not continue sleeping. I don't use it regularly. Only side effects rarely is a little dizziness. I'm taking before sleep between 0,625 mg and 1,25 mg (1/4 or 1/2 of 2,5 mg tablet - mostly 1/2 when I want really quality sleep and really rarely 3/4 (1,87 mg) but I realized that I do not need that dosage). And just another thing - my prescribed dose was 2,5 mg whole tablet, but I just tried with lower dosage and it works.

13 May 2010 I find the lorazepam relaxes me when I feel that life is out of my control and restores my respespective regarding the situatuion that caused me the stress. It helps me sleep when things will not leave my head alone but goes around and around in my head.
