Ativan is the brand name
for Lorazepam, an anti-anxiety agent. Ativan is a benzodiazepine and mild tranquilizer,
sedative, and central nervous system (CNS) depressant. Ativan is manufactured
in pill form as well as liquid form for injection. There are many side effects
that come with the use and abuse of Ativan, they included but are not limited
to: clumsiness, dizziness, sleepiness, unsteadiness, weakness, amnesia, insomnia,
agitation, disorientation, depression, headache, visual problems, nausea, abdominal
discomfort, drowsiness, blurred vision, tachycardia, weakness, disinhibition
(where they act inappropriately grandiose or out-of-control), anterograde amnesia
(decreased or lack of recall of events during period of drug action) has been
reported after administration of Ativan and appears to be dose-related, injectable
Ativan results in an increased incidence of sedation, hallucination, and irrational
behavior, some patients on Ativan have developed leukopenia, both elevation
and lowering of blood sugar levels have been reported.
Ativan side effects include
but are not limited to:
- memory functioning is
markedly and measurably impaired
- ability to store acquired
knowledge into long-term memory
- acute amnesia
. This memory impairment
is highly relevant to students. The risk of acute amnesia is more pronounced
with short-acting drugs. Ativan (lorazepam), Halcion (triazolam), Xanax (alprazolam)
and Rohypnol (flunitrazepam) are especially likely to induce such memory impairment.
