Lorazepam has me FUCKED UP like if I'm tingly n drunk and completely twisted. Otherwise low doses of Valium are also very "don't want to move". If you are tapering, diazepam and clonazepam are good choices.
Lorazepam is good for panic attacks whereas diazepam is good for muscle relaxation, although they both obviously have anxiolytic properties.
Antihistamines are a class of agents that block histamine release from histamine-1 receptors and are used to treat the symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as edema (swelling), itch, inflammation (redness), sneezing, or a runny nose or watery eyes.
Antihistamines can be further divided into those unlikely to cause drowsiness (non-sedating antihistamines) or those likely to cause drowsiness (sedating antihistamines).
However, paradoxical stimulation ranging from excitation through to tremors, hallucinations and convulsions may occur.
Excessive doses in children have led to respiratory depression, coma and death.
Fortunately, the child eventually recovered without any on-going ill-effects.
Diazepam would be a poor choice for insomnia due to it's extremely long half life that would affect your cognition in the daytime. A long time ago I tried diazepam and found it was not easy to tolerate. Most of the sedating properties of lorazepam have worn off.
Better choices would be benzodiazepines such as estazolam, flurazepam, temazepam or triazolam. Other issues aside, how does the sedation of lorazepam compare to diazepam ?
