Is ativan injection use for sedating
So, because lorazepam binds to the receptors in the brain responsible for rewarding effects it does can make you feel high.
Except euphoria, lorazepam can also cause sedation, dizziness and drowsiness.
This can cause very serious consequences for a still-developing brain, since neurological development continues into the mid-20s and drug abuse and can permanently alter this development.
The incidence of combined alcohol and benzodiazepine use is also become very troubling. If I feel I’ve had a bad day, or badly need sleep, I put 4 .5 mg pills under my tongue (2mg total) and soon I go sleepy-bye.
This raises the risk of side effects and some of them can be life-threatening such as difficulty breathing or irregular heartbeat and even coma or death.
The same researchers also found that non-medical use of benzodiazepines such as lorazepam continues to increase in teenagers and individuals between the ages of 18-25.
So, teenagers are also abusing benzodiazepines and the biggest problem is that they may become addicted very quickly.
To get this feeling again, potential abusers will choose to use the drugs again-and again.
Over time, the brain needs more and more of the drug in order to get the same feelings of pleasure.
