    Lorazepam Question -- how much? 
    #1
    Capsule
    ive got 4 1mg sublingual ativan (lorazepam) tablets. I dont have a tolerance but will be taking 2 (ive got a total of 6) before a minor surgical procedure, one the night before and one 45 minutes before. Can i get anything out of those 4 leftover pills? i dont know what a safe "recreational" dose is so if anyone can point me in the right direction that would help. If not, what else are they good for? i do e sometimes so maybe save em for the comedown?

    Thanks.

    Most people don't find Lorazepam very recreational. It's not very euophoric and anything more than 1-2mg without a tolerance will probably just put you to sleep. I'd save them for stimulant comedowns, as it's pretty good for that.

    With 4mg Lorazepam left, you could:

    -get high on 2,5mg (assuming you have NO tolerance at all); and keep the remaining 1,5mg for stressful situations, or when you can't sleep.

    -use 1mg whenever you feel at stress, can't sleep, etc...

    I'm on lorazepam daily and I couldn't get through without it. Benzo addiction sucks a huge one.

    I've just recently been prescribed lorazepam for anxiety, and I don't find it recreational at all. Granted, I've never taken any more than 2mg at once (no tolerance), but all that did was put me to sleep.

    I've heard that recreational doses of lorazepam start at over 3mg, but I'm not prescribed enough of them yet to warrant using excess amounts for fun.

    Supposedly liquid lorazepam is where the fun is really at...

    I wouldn't expect much from lorazepam... I think it's a big letdown. Sort of like Xanax but with out that goood Xanax buzz... Whatever...

    I find that lorazepam really just isn't much fun. You can take medical amounts for lasting relaxation and anxiety control, but if you do more you don't get nearly the pleasant buzzed feeling from other benzos like alprazolam, just impaired mental faculties and amnesia.

    As mentioned, it is said to be useful for stimulant comedowns as well. You should probably keep it until you need it for anxiety. I would.

    i would suggest saving it for rough days, and take a mg or two during those times. I think ativan is dubbed "not recreational" because it isn't really a party drug like booze or coke. But when you take ativan, you have no worries and feel warm all over. i guess if you didn't have any worries before hand, that wouldn't be all that great. If your idea of a "recreational" drug is something great to get fucked up on when you are bored, ativan is not, if your idea of a "recreational" drug is something that will make you feel good and help you temporarily escape the toils of life, ativan is.

    lorazepam may not be great for getting you all fucked up, but when I am having a hard day ativan is GOD, smooth and warm, better than xanax by leaps n' bounds. I've never just taken it when i am bored because i do not have enough to spare for such situations, but i feel like benzo's in general, including xanax, are shitty for just getting fucked up.

    but benzos are a very subjective class of drugs...

    then stop taking it... have a drink or smoke a bowl before bed, maybe even take a unisom or look into lunesta. if that won't do it, then you need benzos to make it through day to day life, and that's insane.

    Lorazepam is great for me. Mix it with an opioid and some Carisoprodol and you're done.

    For anxiety, it causes sleep so I dont recommend it.

    Lorazepam gives me a more "space out" feeling and less euphoric feeling then the other main benzos (diazepam, alprazolam, clonazapam). Your mileage may vary though, as most people react to different benzos differently. I have seen a buddy take 6mg of xanax on no tolerance and be fine. Next day take 2mg of ativan and be out like a light.

    wow that's one of the strangest things i've heard. 6mg xanax didnt knock him out but 2mg lorazepam did? i take 6-8mgs of xanax to catch a buzz and i get faded as fuck. i usually take 4mg ativan but it doesn't make me feel nearly as buzzed as xanax. when i take the ativan it actually makes me more energetic.

    yeah, i've never found it all that fun, i've taken up to 8mg with a little tolerance and all it seems to do is have pronounced amnesiac effects, not very euphoric. I say keep them for a rainy day, mix with something good like opiates, or if you are like me, id end up taking them all anyway.

    I guess everybody's different. For me, lorazepam is more euphoric than alprazolam. 2-4 mg Ativan taken sublingually gives me a very fun buzz. The same amount of Xanax just puts me to sleep.

    Lorazepam makes me an asshole. I dont know if it blocks so much inhibitory GABAa that I am just speaking too much of my mind, but lorazepam has been very bad for my social life in the past. Although I find it has rather good anti-emetic properties.

    wtf! this is amazing that so many subjects could have so many different reactions to the same drug. how is this possible with benzos? as opposed to stimulants or opiates, which tend to have similar effects on most subjects.

    I found lorazepam to be my favourite recreational benzo aside from valium and halcion.

    Two milligrams would make me feel about as benzoed as a milligram of clonazepam.

    If you use opiates or stimulants, I'd save them for either

    a) a comedown from stims

    <or>

    b) trouble sleeping from withdrawals (opiates)

    <or>

    c) amplifying the effects of opiates by combination consumption (of course know your body/tolerance, don't go overboard)

    I find clonazepam & IV heroin to be a nice combination that I've grown accustom to over the past few weeks, but I started small to gauge myself, now I know my limits. Just know your body, and be safe.

    Or you could just use them for stressful situations, or general trouble sleeping like others have stated above.

    1mg of ativan is equal to .5 of xanax in mg to mg comparison.
