Ativan 2 mg Tablets
A healthcare provider may prescribe Ativan to treat conditions such as anxiety, tension, and seizures. There are three strengths of Ativan® (lorazepam) tablets on the market, and 2 mg Ativan tablets are the strongest strength available. Your healthcare provider will consider several factors before recommending an Ativan dosage. Some of these factors include your age, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are currently taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
For treating anxiety, the recommended starting dose of Ativan is 1 mg, two to three times daily. For insomnia due to anxiety, the recommended starting dose is 2 mg to 4 mg once daily at bedtime.
Ativan can be taken with or without food. If it bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
