Can I take oral lorazepam sublingually

I have lorazepam pills which came with the instructions to swallow them whole.
Can I chew them up and take them sublingually instead? will that work? will that lessen the effects in any way?

I never noticed any difference in the potency doing sublingual, but yes you can. They dissolve quickly. Either way, Lorazepam has a very quick onset when taken orally.

you can take them sublingually. you’ll only notice a slight difference if your tolerance is super low. after a while it’s simpler to swallow them.
I'm definitely with Hydro on this one. You can definitely take a Lorazepam (Ativan) tablet sublingually, but it will not dissolve as quickly as a tablet made for that purpose. With all things considered, I think you will eventually find that swallowing the pill is the easier means of administering your drug.
