Ativan will be detectable in urine for up to six weeks, and in the blood for up to two days after it was taken.

Ativan is a benzodiazepine, which is one of ten substances tested for in a standard ten panel urine screening.

This drug is used to treat anxiety disorders by re-balancing chemicals in the brain to prevent the onset of the condition. This medication is also prescribed to treat insomia and seizures, and can also be used to sedate patients.

How long does Ativan stay in your urine and your blood?
  • Ativan is the brand name of the chemical lorazepam, a member of the benzodiazepine family of drugs which can be detected in urine for six weeks, and in blood for two days after it was taken.
  • Urine testing is commonly used because it's both cost-effective and reliable. It also has the advantage of being able to detect drug use over a slightly-longer time frame than blood tests can.
  • If a mouth swab test is going to be used, then Ativan traces can be found in the saliva for approximately ten days after usage.
  • Hair follicle testing is only used when a test needs a longer-term drug history. This method of testing can find traces of Ativan for about three months after the drug was taken.
