How to use Hemofarm Lorazepam?

Anxiety: The recommended starting dose of lorazepam for adults is 2 mg daily. The amount is individualized according to your specific needs and response to the medication. Your doctor can increase this dose to as high as 6 mg per day in 2 to 4 divided doses.

If you take the sublingual tablets, place the tablet under the tongue. The medication will dissolve in about 20 seconds. You should not swallow for at least 2 minutes to allow the drug to be absorbed into the body.

Seizures: The dose of injectable lorazepam for episodes is based on body weight and given by a trained healthcare provider in a hospital.

Many things can affect a person’s medication dose, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other drugs. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way you take the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is essential to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you have been taking this medication regularly, do not stop taking the medication without speaking with your doctor. A gradual dose reduction is recommended when stopping this medication to avoid withdrawal effects.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double amount to make up for a missed one. Contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you are unsure what to do after missing a dose.

Store lorazepam tablets at room temperature, protect them from light and moisture, and keep them out of the reach of children. The lorazepam injection is stored in the fridge.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g., down the sink or toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
