Lorazepam is an anti-anxiety agent under the general category of “benzodiazepines”, or “benzos,” meaning “mild tranquilizers,” used for the relief of anxiety and, sometimes, to relieve insomnia. Often it is prescribed to calm people with mania / schizophrenia, or given intravenously as a sedative to help patients ease the anxiety that frequently is found with withdrawal symptoms. It has less of an effect on the liver then other benzodiazepines, making it a good choice for patients who are going through rehab and taking anti-abuse drugs.
More expensive and addictive than most other benzodiazepines, doctors are reluctant to prescribe it, when there are cheaper and safer drugs available
but it is super potent and dangerous, so, you've been warned.
