I recently started taking Lorazepam occasionally to help me sleep. I am experiencing blackouts (similar to those caused by drinking too much alcohol) for two days after I take one(1 mg). Is this normal?
Yes my friend It can, I was put on Lunesta which basically the same as any benzodiazepine medication.
I slept walked for a few nights where I went to sleep but awoke unknown to me because I found juice or such on the counter. I monitored it but that quickly stopped and I also became immune to it too.
That's wild that your experiencing black outs at just 1mg and for 2 days! Wow. Are you taking any meds that would interact with the ativan? Or drinking at all? The only thing I can think of as to why 1mg causes you to blackout is mixing meds or maybe your body just converts differently and it's too much for your body to handle.
