My Dad is diagnosed with metastatic cancer 3 months ago he started taking lorazepam for anxiety but we have noticed that since he started taking this he ud no longer alert or awake in all day
Hi Irdalos Just as Laurie has already said, The Lorazepam can cause drowsiness for some people it did Nothing for me. But the doctor might have to change it or lower the strength.I am not sure but is he also taking other medications please feel free to list them and one of us well check to see if anything has a drug reaction also.They had me on 1mg Lorazepam 4 times daily for Nausea and it did not phase me during my Chemotherapy and Im still on 21 different medications as of today.Get to go off of many the first of the year.Please feel free to use us for information on your dad I wish him well.And the whole family I know it is hard and scary.I lucked out I had stage 4 Hodgkin's lymphoma with soft tissue my heart, liver and spline and stomach were all full of cancer I was not to make it through September.But for sure I was a lucky man. Now if I could get rid of all these side effects from the Chemo.I am 100% cured but from 169lbs I went to 98lbs before I went to the doctor because I was sleeping all the time So please give your Dad my best and don't give up hope and faith. also it well help you guys if you get all your prescriptions at one pharmacy so the Pharmacist can look for Interactions as things are filled.Hope they find something to help you Dad relax and you all too. Again feel free to come back and ask us anything we are not doctors we are just regular people that have been through almost all medications and try and help others. And like Laurie is very good at helping with these questions and has a heart of gold. Welcome to this site and feel like you can ask us anything if you need us.
