Lorazepam will usually stay in your system for about 6 hours. Every person is different though so professionals will often say 12 hours to be sure.

  • What is Lorazepam?
Lorazepam is a benzodiazepine drug that is often used to treat anxiety and insomnia and also to sedate hospitalized or aggressive patients. It is a short acting, therapeutic drug that is extremely effective at treating anxiety as it calms the patient. It has been used to treat anxiety since 1977 but it does have the potential to become addictive and may be misused or used as a recreational drug. It is recommended that Lorazepam is only used for 2-4 weeks due to the potential for patients to become addicted.

  • Side effects of Lorazepam
It is known that people become addicted to Lorazepam and will experience unpleasant side effects when coming off the drug. Some of these side effects include amnesia, depression or even extreme excitement and high levels of energy. It often affects the balance of people taking it and the drug is sometimes held responsible for the falls in elderly people.

Lorazepam is known to increase the problems of people who suffer from personality disorders and psychiatric problems. It may be used to initially help the patient with these problems but if it is taken for too long it can worsen the symptoms. It can cause anger and aggression in some people but docility in others. Depression is often experienced which can lead to suicidal behavior. It can affect the memory of some patients, particularly those who have been given the drug for sedation.

Lorazepam should not be given to patients who have suffered from alcohol or drug dependence. These people tend to have an addictive personality and are likely to abuse Lorazepam too.

Lorazepam is basically a benzodiazepine drug which is anxiolytic, amnesic, sedative, anticonvulsant and also a muscle relaxant. It is recommended by doctors for patients having anxiety.

The time it takes a drug to leave your system is dependent on a number of factors. It is affected by your gender, your height, weight and also your body metabolism. However, on average the half life of this drug is 9-16 hours. Which means that it will take around 18-32 hours for a standard dose of this drug to leave your system.
