My mother's Dr. has her on all three meds and she seems dazed and confused now. Has anyone had any experience with this combination

Well, all medications can cause side effects and sometimes, they can cause a synergistic effect, making each other's side effects worse.

Lorazepam is a generic for Ativan, this is a potent Benzodiazepine, it is used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders.

(I'm going to post about all these meds individually to avoid confusion, but please note that in the eldery, drugs can react more potently and cause more pronounced side effects!)

Side effects for this may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and confusion.

Clorazepate is derived from a Benzodiazepine, a generic for Tranxene, it is used to treat anxiety and insomnia.

So, the side effects for this one can also include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and headache.

That said, any one of these or the combo could be causing her symptoms, in addition, a lot of the treatment effects here overlap.

this site is not medical professionals, so I can't really say, but if this was my mother, I'd be asking her doctor some serious and hard questions regarding the necessity of all 3 of these at once.

Have you spoken to the doc, yet?
