    10 oclock here in Canada and swim just took 6, 1mg tabs of Novo Lorazem aka lorazepam. Evryone on here seems to think going over 2mg is stupid. Im not sure why seeing as a doctor probly wouldnt argue with that dose. Anyway he's only done this once before with ativans; 9, .5mg tabs for a total of 4.5 mg and he had a damn good time, pretty fucked up actually. Anyways didnt think 6 mils would be going way overboard but he has a moticum of worry after reading some recommendations on here.

    now swim is stating this only from experience not scientific evidence, but swim has taken 10mg of ativan and had a good time mind you i have a verry verry mild to minimal tollerance with benzo's. needless to say 6mg should at worst cause panic from the unknown but i hope this post can relieve some of that panic as most people with zero tollerance can handle more than what "they" say is harmfull its kind of like they make it a little lower only to assure that people without tollerance will not go completely overboard. this might make sense it might not but i hope it helped

    Ativan is lorazepam, actually. Lorazepam is just a generic name. Same,same.

    If SWIY got toasty on 4.5mg, they're gonna be hit much harder with another 1.5. SWIM would make sure she didn't combine that with any other downers tonight--like alcohol, opies etc.

    Be safe. Try to know what one is putting into their system before they do it.

    SWIY can always add more to their dosage to enhance their trip once the initial effects peak; however, no one can take back what they've already ingested and adsorbed once it turns out to be too much.

    ETA: 4mg is the dose where medical providers typically start seeing anterograde amnestic effects with lorazepam. 6mg has a pretty decent chance of inducing that state. People is this state are swear their reflexes are completely normal, but they're actually significantly reduced...as is the persons decision-making capacity. SWIY should probably make sure they hand their keys to someone else for safe-keeping or to drive tonight if that's on the agenda. Making sure they have a sober-ish sitter for the evening would be real smart too since SWIY doesn't really have any idea of how they're going to react to this dosage.

    Swim ate down 7.5mg of lorazepram along with 2mg of Nitrazepam and 2mg of Lorazepam and 2600mg of carisoprodol during the last couple hours. Felt pretty drowsy and nice for a while, but decided to double the amount which he just did.

    At the moment SWIM feel rather normal and clearheaded not drugged, even though some vodka is going down. He has a BIG tolerance though from years of use so for a beginner this would, and I emphasize "WOULD", knock him out.

    For example, 1mg alone of Nitrazepam renders his girl almost unable to walk and very obviously drugged. SWIM could walk in the streets now and no one would notice.. Oh the days of low tolerance.

    SWIM even been off from the benzos, alco and everything else for more than a month and hoped it would hit him harder than it did. Seems tolerance stays a while. This IS a rather strong cocktail he is on here.

    As usual, find your dosage, start LOW. SWIM always been a "hardhead" on any substance. :/

    well, it's hard to say exactly, but 6mg lorazepam is about 3mg xanax (alprazolam) or klonipin (clonazepam). it means you should have a good time. but it also means if you need to remember shit, i would recommend swiy WRITES IT DOWN.

    benzos slaughter memory. true story.

    SWIM never appreciated lorazopam until he became familiar with the other popular benzo's....(alrprazolam, clonazopam, diazepam) and then SWIM began to develop a taste for it. it has its own unique flavour to it

    SWIM has taken doses as high as 5-6mg before and it makes for a nice, sedating buzz. but lorazopam more than any of the other benzo's has intense amnesic effects. it causes total memory loss at high doses and can also severely affect judgment. SWIM has done some very stupid things on ativan
