Lorazepam Taste

jessie Says:

I been taking lorazepam 1 mg white small round, soft and sweet tasting. I think these are meant to be taken sublingualy. I just got some that were crushed up but they were bitter. Anyone heard of bitter tasting lorazepam? White in color and not soft?

Hi jessie,

After seeing a number of comments from other users, I think the taste largely depends on which manufacturer you get.

Most of the reviews I've come across state that they also had a extremely bitter or chalky taste in their mouth after having certain brands. While others have somewhat of a sweet taste.

Perhaps one or more of the inactive ingredients that make up the tablet's composition, could be more prominent in a particular batch. That's just one theory anyway.

Do you know which company it is who makes the bitter version of Lorazepam?

Taste is definitely sweet tasting. The sublingual variety is currently what I am looking for - if you are still taking it would you be able to find out who the manufacturer is from your pharmacy for me? I am having issues locating if anyone still makes these. Having wicked anxiety thru the sunless winter months. (I take supplements as well).

That is almost positively alprazolam.. generic for Xanax. They are truly the ONLY benzo that's bitter and has a sorta snap if broken in half. Had to learn this because of counterfeits being distributed.

Is it legal for a doctor to prescribe a placebo instead of lorazopam?

I was prescribed lorazopam. The problem is unlike those in the past, which tasted bitter this one had no taste whatsoever. Either it is counterfeit or it is a placebo. Is prescribing a placebo legal?
