I feel like chuck went on a commenting spree a few years back, having commented on every drug I’ve searched, whether for myself or someone else. I’d take his “expertise” with a grain of salt, especially since it’s his personal experience.
Back on track in 2018...
I started getting nauseous when I was switched from one generic to another, I think. I had to start taking large amounts (6-8mg), in order to avoid that weird nausea feeling, plus vomiting for 12 hours. Once I started to consistently run out way too early, I requested a change, for a few months. My Dr. moved me to clonazepam, which made me too tired, for too long. When I went back to lorazepam, I made sure to use a pharmacy with a different brand than my last and I had no issues with 1mg doses. Just my experience with this med but hope it helps.
