Reviews for Lorazepam

Ativan (lorazepam): "I was given this for post op pain in recovery instead of narcotics because a anesthesiologist deemed me a drug user because I requested no morphine due to severe itching and scratching till I bled. I could not take ibuprofen due to renal disease. I WAS GIVEN 2mg ativan IV and told it was pain medication. I could feel every bit of the pain but could not speak...people were walking by me and would say “she is asleep now” but I was screaming inside. All it did was drug me to the point I could not speak but could feel every bit of the pain. on the way home from the hospital I went psychotic in the car trying to hurt other people. This left me with nightmares for 2-3 weeks, depression, anger and memory loss. It was not disclosed what was given until I kept pressing them because it was the worst surgical experience ever. The cover up was the worst. It hindered my healing from the surgery."
