Problems With Ativan

As with many other medications, Ativan® (lorazepam) can cause problems. Some of the most common problems with this drug include side effects, such as:
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Unsteadiness.
If side effects do occur, they tend to be minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider. However, there are some potentially serious Ativan problems that require immediate medical attention. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience problems such as depression, difficulty breathing, or suicidal thoughts.
Other Ativan warnings and precautions apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as people who have certain allergies. Also, you may not be able to take Ativan if you have certain medical conditions, such as liver disease, glaucoma, or depression.
