Reviews for Lorazepam
"I have extreme dental anxiety. The dentist prescribed 3 mg an hour prior to dental work along with a valium the evening before and the procedure went wonderful. I did not feel any pain although I was a bit loopy the rest of the day :) I went home after the procedure and went to bed. No lingering effects. I had 2 teeth pulled, deep cleaning, prep work for a bridge and a temporary bridge installed."

"My dentist doesn't use sedation so he prescribed 2mg lorazepam the night before, 1 in the morning and 1 an hour before my tooth extractions!! It worked wonders. I'm terrified of dentists by the way. I also was prescribed this same dosing for a closed machine MRI, it was very effective. I also use 1 mg for anxiety (panic attacks). It is a bit less effective - I'd give it a 7 out of 10 for that use."

"I'm taking Lorazepam 2mg every 6 hrs as needed for pain. This has worked wonderfully for me with no side effects. I'm on this medication ONLY until my surgery pain goes away."
