Actually, it is the generic (lorazepam) and psychiatrist had prescribed 0.5 mg tablets as needed but cautioned not to give it to difficult child often due to addictive nature. He said to start with one tablet and if it was too much then give 1/2. If it wasn't enough, give more but not to exceed 2 tablets in one day. I gave 1 whole tablet to difficult child yesterday. He wasn't anxious but I gave it to him while I could be around him to see what reaction he might have. It really seemed to have no effect whatsoever. difficult child said he couldn't tell any difference either. I gave it to him around 1:00. It does look like he went to bed on time and went to sleep easily. The medication should have worn off by then but it might have left him more tired than usual. Any thoughts? Sunday afternoons are usual horrible for us. difficult child hates to shift gears and think about preparing for the upcoming week- homework, getting school stuff in order, etc.
