    Dissolving .05 MG Ativan in warm water? And swallowing? Would it make a difference in half life, or anything? Like would it come on faster, as it's already dissolved?

    This may work, but TBH sublingual administration works very well, according to Swiv. She says it hits her fast, but she's not too sensitive to benzos, so she can't say if it is stronger. All she does is stick it under her tongue and let it melt. Within 5-10 minutes, she's much calmer. Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

    There is no evidence that sublingual taken Lorazepam works faster than
    swallowed. SWIM read that in a study released to the internet a few
    months ago. Just make sure you don't take 0.5 mg (0.05 mg wont do that
    much ;-) ) on a full stomach. Of course you could use an ordinary pill the
    sublingual way, but SWIM sees no sense in this.
