Active substance information

  • Ativan (Lorazepam), or a benzodiazepine class of medicine, is a drug that works by increasing the activity of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor neurotransmitter in the brain. Neurotransmitters are compounds present in nerve cells in the brain and nervous system. GABA is a neurotransmitter that acts as a natural nerve sedative and helps keep the nerve activity in the brain in balance, being involved in reducing anxiety, relaxing muscles, and causing drowsiness. Based on the process of drug action in the body, lorazepam is known to have the following status:
  • Absorption: Very Easily absorbed by the body from the gastrointestinal tract after oral administration. Bioavailability is 90%.
  • Distribution: Crosses the placenta and the blood-brain barrier and enters breast milk. Distribution volume: 1.3 L/kg. Plasma protein binding is about 85%.
  • Metabolism: Metabolized in the liver, contaminated with Ativan lorazepam glucuronide as a nonfunctional metabolite.
  • Excretion: About 88% via urine and mostly inactive metabolites. In through feces, about 7%.
