So friends here is the story.

I was able to get few pills of Ativan (lorazepam), the 0.5 mg version and I intend to use them in a few days’ time.

However, I’m not sure how much I should take to get a good high. Would one to two 0.5 mg strength pills be good?

Can anyone who has got some experience with Ativan give some advice? I have tried Xanax, so a comparison with it would be good.

I don’t want to end up in a mortuary or a hospital ER, hence turning to this forum for your advice.

Thanks.

Lorazepam belongs to drug group called benzodiazepines and is prescribed for treating anxiety disorder.

A person who takes lorazepam can experience a relaxed, mellow feeling. It would make you chilled out.

Getting a good high would depend on the pill dosage, but the general thumb rule is one to two pills.

The high would be a smooth and warm high and is far better than Xanax.

It is better if you take it when you are feeling good. If you are bored, then choose something else, because this pill would not get you high like other stuff.

Well, everybody is different.

A high on Ativan is far better than one on Xanax. I get a euphoria-like high when I take 2 to 4 mg of Ativan.

OTOH, if I take the same amount of Xanax, I would sleep like hell.

I hope you get the picture.

Ativan is a medium-acting downer whose half-life is lesser than valium.

I prefer Ativan pills since these are not dangerous and help in coming down better off of a stimulant-like drug.

The best method to take these is snorting. It decreases the time to get high besides preventing damage to the nasal mucosa.

Lorazepam is a good anxiolytic, though it is not the best bet for sleep, IMO. For the newbies, 1 mg lorazepam is equal to 10 mg of diazepam.

Lorazepam’s actions are primarily amnesiac, anxiolytic, and myorelaxant.

The best method to take these is snorting.
I don’t think so. Lorazepam gets absorbed quickly in the GI tract, so swallowing them would be good enough.

I don’t see any benefit of sniffing it.

I have read many threads about Ativan, and many were preaching how mellow it was and what not.

I once took three pills of 0.5 mg Ativan, mixed it in beer and drank it. I did not get any buzz or any high whatsoever. Dejected, I went to sleep.

The next day, I woke up with severe pain in the jaw and it was as if I got bruxism overnight. My teeth would not just stop grinding.

The whole thing stopped only in the evening.

Lesson learned. I would never use Ativan again.

Ativan works best for me if I take it with alcohol. I, generally, take around 4-5 pills of the 0.5 mg strength (7-8 pills if you want to go the whole hog) and get my friends over.

Since each individual is different, the dose is approximate and proper precautions should be taken while taking this drug.

I weigh 250lbs, so I take this dose and can tolerate them easily, but if a person weighing 80lbs takes this dose and goes for a drive, that would be the last drive of his life.

Also, if you have to take any drug tests then avoid these completely for nearly one month before the test, since these can show up even after three weeks.

So, going for 0.5 mg would be a good starting point.

Ativan should be used therapeutically and not abused; since Ativan develops tolerance easily.

In my experience, it would not create panic disorder as some of its peers like valium.

Abuse of Ativan has resulted in shrinks avoiding prescribing these medicines to genuine patients like me.

Besides developing tolerance, Ativan is also very addictive and withdrawing from it would be a painful process.

I have seen many people snorting Ativan to get high which I think is a ridiculous thing since these contain binders which can easily destroy the nasal mucosa, clog sinuses and hinder getting the full effect of it.

Injecting these pills is also dangerous since these binders can cause respiratory distress by getting stuck in the lungs.

The best and only safe method to take this drug is through mouth since it is easily digestible in the GI tract.

Remember one thing, if you use more than 2 mg of Ativan DO NOT DRIVE OR BE ALONE. Always be with your friends or family members or relatives.

Ativan makes me cozy and mellow and does not give a euphoria-like high. It does not give a hangover the next day, unlike other drugs.

Ideally, 1 to 2 mg Ativan should be sufficient since taking more would make you sedated and would not allow you to enjoy a high.

However, these effects would vary in different individuals, so trying them out is the only way to knowing how it would affect you.

One tip – start on a lower dose and gradually build up.

I once took nearly seven pills of 0.5 mg Ativan in hopes of getting a decent high.

All it did was knock off the anxiety that I had; much in the same way as Xanax or valium would do.

Over time, I have learned a neat little trick to get a mild euphoria. I chew these tablets quickly to enable it to get absorbed into my system faster.

Once it gets absorbed, I get a mild euphoria. It is not very intense but can make you more relaxed. Add a couple of drinks to this, and the effect would be amazing.

Abusing lorazepam can land you in trouble.

I once snitched few pills from my dad’s medicine cabinet and went to a friend’s house to enjoy these.

To get a good high, I took nearly 5 to 6 pills and waited for the effects to kick in. After waiting for nearly four to five hours, I decided to call it a day and drive back home.

For first 15 minutes, the drive was good, and I was enjoying it, but suddenly things started spinning out of control, and I ended up ramming the car into the back of a police car.

The next thing I remember was waking in a hospital (was in a coma for six days). I got a DUI ticket, was forced to join a rehab and nearly ended up with severe memory impairment.

Well, don’t blame the drug. It is not at fault.

Your actions are at fault. First of all, you shouldn’t have snitched the pills, and the second biggest mistake was driving after taking these pills.

Even in hospitals where doctors have to give large doses (in rare cases), they keep a constant vigil on the patient to check if all vitals are okay.

Your foolishness and arrogance was the reason for what happened.

I am neither foolish nor arrogant, and for a person whom I think has no idea about addiction, it would be unfair to make a judgment.

I have never blamed the drug. All I said was abusing lorazepam would be dangerous and can land one in trouble. I was implying about the dangers of abusing it.

I intended to forewarn users against abusing this stuff and nothing else.

.5 Ativan is equal to 1/4th of a Xanax bar(2mg of Xanax). So, 1 Xanax bar might be too much for some beginners, as I took 1mg. of Xanax(1 purple 1mg. Xanax or 1/2 of a yellow Xanax bar) my first experience w/benzodiazepam's, and I was extremely intoxicated! So, back to Ativan. Two .5 Ativans would be 1mg. of Xanax and should do the job nicely. If you really wanna party and have some common sense, a couple/three 12oz. brewskys prior to ingesting your two .5 ativans should get you in the zone big-time! Cheers!
