Re: ativan/lorazepam sublingually = faster effect?

As far as my experience went, Lorazepam is always able to be used sublingually. You should confirm with your pharmacist. I used to use 1 mg. sublingually as needed (that's how my doc prescribed it). Personally, I used to cut the pills in half and let is sit under my tongue if I was really anxious.
One warning though... Ativan is really hard to get off of for many people (including me). My psychiatrist told me it's one of the most addictive drugs (Xanax is, too). After just a month, it can begin to get addictive. And, you will probably need more and more of it to get the same effect. Just a word of caution...
Good luck to you.
