Lorazepam is a prescription-only medication used to treat people suffering from anxiety, sleeping disorders linked to anxiety, and severe agitation. Lorazepam can also be used as a pre-med before surgery or dental work. It can also be used to treat sickness and vomiting that people experience after having chemotherapy.

How does Lorazepam work?

Lorazepam belongs to a family of medications known as benzodiazepines. Lorazepam works by increasing the levels of a calming chemical in your brain. The chemical is called gamma-amino-butyric acid, which is often shortened to GABA. This chemical released in the brain can make you feel calmer, relieving anxiety and allowing you to feel at ease. This is why Lorazepam is used for anxiety-based sleeping disorders as it allows you to relax enough to sleep.
