what is a normal dosage of ativan? 8mg? or would 8mg put me out?
27 Dec 2004
"normal", anxiety-fighting doses of Ativan range from .25 to 2mg, depending on the person and their benzo tolorance. 1mg of Ativan is roughly equilivant of 10mg valium, so your assumed dose would be a massive dose for a non-benzo-tolorant person. don't just assume your doses of drugs, it's a good way to end up in the ER (or the morgue).

The suggested dosage is one capsule four times a day. Are that many necessary or can the dosage be smaller with good results?
