How should I take lorazepam?

Lorazepam can be taken in tablet, liquid and injectable forms. Your doctor will most likely prescribe tablets or liquid. Lorazepam is usually taken two or three times daily and may be taken with or without food. The liquid form can be mixed with water, juice, soda or other beverages -- or can be added to pudding or applesauce -- before taking it. Take lorazepam exactly as your doctor advises. Do not change your dose or dosing schedule without first talking to your doctor.
