And how long does this drug actually relieve anxiety for? I'm assuming 2-4 hours... I am probably wrong, though.

Correct me....

please.

Aren't you prescribed to it? These are things you should be asking your doctor to be honest man.

The half-life is 9-16 hours, as per Wikipedia.

benzodiazepines are generally traceable for less than a week. it will last you less than 24 hrs. Why are u taking them??? They are usually used as an end of the day sleep aid... from what legit applications I have seen.

Thanks, man. Yeah... I just wanted to know what the half-life was, because I wasn't sure of it. I have heard that the half-life is 4 hours. I've heard that it was 8 hours. Now, you're telling me Wikipedia says it's 9-16 hours. It's kind of confusing and right now, my internet is fucking up terribly, but this forum has been working fine for the last few hours. So, I don't want to leave from here and go find out the actual half-life because I'm afraid that this website will then become unaccessible like the rest of the entire web. lol.

I am, indeed, prescribed Lorazepam, but only the 0.5mg ones. My doc only prescribed me enough to last me till my next visit as long as I take them EXACTLY as prescribed. That leaves me no room for experimentation. The 0.5mg dose itself only seems to have an effect for about 2 hours or so. I don't get to see my doc again till next month and I kinda wanted to know now.

But thanks for hitting Wikipedia up for me, man. Because I can't right now. It's appreciated. :)

Actually, I am very intelligent and I happen to LOVE trance as well as a vast plethora of other music genres like classical, bluegrass, jazz, and progressive death metal. And so do a lot of other intellectuals that I know. I guess we're all idiots, huh.....

Technically, only an idiot would post such a stupid fucking image like that to begin with. On top of that, it makes you an idiot ASSHOLE because you apparently get off on trying to offend people via the internet. Get a fucking hobby, man. Like playing in traffic or something constructive like that.

Lorazepam is a benzodiazepine commonly used to treat anxiety and panic disorder. I don't know where you get your information from, but I am not prescribed Lorazepam as a sleep aid. I am prescribed to it for PANIC DISORDER and ACUTE ANXIETY.

So, instead of annoying me with your bullshit, how about you go jump in front of a Mack Truck and do the world, and this forum, a huge favor...... you fucking shit-filled bag of cocks.

First of all, you are wrong, it is not "usually" used as a sleep-aid. Please do not post information that is false. Please, stay out of anything related to these forums, because you honestly have NO knowledge whatsoever. Furthermore, I urge you to never comment on anyone elses style of music. Not only is it ignorant, and makes you look more like a jackass then you already do yourself, it's just a sad attempt for attention.

Also, it's really sad you had to not only hi-jack a thread with some pointless picture, you had to go as far as PMing me a whiny bitchy thing about your music being SOOOO much better? Wow, you are officially the lamest person on hipforums. That is certainly a feat.

have u ever herd of IDM? when you can understand and appreciate that... you actually might scrape the surface of intellectual music that does more that repeat every 8 or 16 count.

Seriously, to say that trance music isn't appreciated if one has less than a 130 IQ demonstrates your lack of understanding of rhythm and music as a whole. Trance to IDM is like Punk Rock to the Dead. Totally different levels of understanding.

Good luck!


This is what was in my inbox....

First of all, you can't even spell right. Second of all, you must not understand rhythm if you think IDM has it.

IDM! That is pure irony for an unintelligent human being to listen to something called "intelligent dance music." It's sad that a genre has to label itself such, as well.

Good luck in life, you have already failed at it so far though, so there probably isn't much hope for you!

Here is some comments that some "IDM" artists have commented about your so called intelligent dance music:

In a September 1997 interview, Aphex Twin commented on the 'Intelligent Dance Music' label:

I just think it's really funny to have terms like that. It's basically saying 'this is intelligent and everything else is stupid.' It's really nasty to everyone else's music. (laughs) It makes me laugh, things like that. I don't use names. I just say that I like something or I don't.[13]

Aphex Twin's Rephlex records official overarching genre name is Braindance, of which Dave Segal of Stylus Magazine asked whether it was a "snide dig at IDM’s mockworthy Intelligent Dance Music tag?"[14] British artist Mike Paradinas (µ-Ziq) has bluntly said:

No one uses or used it in UK. Only Americans ever used the term. It was invented by Alan Parry who set up the IDM mailing list. [15]

Kid 606 has said,

I hate IDM and its elitist champions. It makes the music sound so much more than it actually is. It's a label invented by PR companies who need catchphrases. I like sounds, but hate what people attach to sounds.[16]

Chris Jeffs (Cylob) said, "Also, anyone who applies the term IDM to my music deserves to be shot."[17] Thaddeus Hermann of City Centre Offices has said

Nowadays, I do not like the sound of the term. Whenever someone mentions it, or uses it to describe their own music, I immediately become skeptical, expecting weak and boring tracks.” [18]


Way to go, but please, next time you try attacking my music taste, at least have something decent enough to compare it to. It's really sad that you got offended by signature too, it shows just how pathetic you really are.



This is what you tried to tell me is better then trance? Do people really actually consider this music? It sounds like an ape humming into a microphone while a 3 year old plays one of those pre-made songs and then bashes the keyboard to add extra notes in while the sub track plays....

Also, here is something to show you what Ativan is "usually" prescribed for, since you posted horrible, false information. We know it was only an attempt to whine about how your style of music (you even pmed me to cry about it) but here is some information so you don't look like such a funboy next time:

Lorazepam (also known by its brand name Ativan or Temesta) is a benzodiazepine drug with short to medium duration of action. It has all five intrinsic benzodiazepine effects: anxiolytic, sedative/hypnotic, anticonvulsant and muscle relaxant, to different extents.[5] It is a powerful anxiolytic and since its introduction in 1971, lorazepam's principal use has been in treating the symptom of anxiety. It is a unique benzodiazepine insofar as it has also found use as an adjunct antiemetic in chemotherapy. Among benzodiazepines, lorazepam has a relatively high addictive potential.[6]


Therefore, I must say, your avatar sure does suit you well. Please do not attempt to reply, you will only make yourself look more and more like your avatar.

Intelligent dance music...haha. Thank you for the laugh tonight, it was a slow and boring night until you came along!

Also here is some more "Intelligent dance music" for ya guys, if you thought maybe the first one was just a fluke. This is actually what this guy is telling me is real music, and has rhythm. Trance actually has thought, emotion, and skill involved. This is just a bunch of random sounds you could make in a bathroom.



Now compare this to something that actually has thought, feeling, rhythm, emotion, and A BEAT:

Oh Jesus Herbert Moonwalking Christ.... You just got fucking owned to the highest degree of ownage that I have ever seen in the entirety of my life. Holy fucking shit balls....

There is piss all in my pants and shit all over the walls at my house now, due to U4IA's ownage of your unintelligent rectum.

:willy_nilly::rofl::willy_nilly::rofl:

And I do not pity you in the slightest, GreenGuy. You should really learn to regulate that dick-sucker every once in a while and think before you let diarrhea like that fall out of that glory hole of yours.

U4IA.... motherfucking cheers, man. seriously.

Everyone is different. Benzos are traceablle in urine for up to and over an entire month, so better be safe than sorry.

And guys, please stop this kind of BS arguing on the forums. This is a drug forum, not a lets compare musical tastes and see how intelligently we can insult each other forum. If you dont have anything pertinent to say regarding the topic of the thread, then please, dont post. People come here to get advice without having to skim through pages of unrelated crap. I'll leave this thread open for now because there is some useful information, but please read the forum guidelines before you start posting.

This is like the 3rd person who has attacked me in OTHER people's threads about my musical taste. This guy went as far as to PM me about it. Idiots like this should be banned from the forums.

It's been happening a lot the past 2 weeks. The forums havent been this pathetic since 06 really. If someone is intentionally bothering you, hit the report post button, or send a PM to a moderator. I've had to close several threads this week, some of them were like 40 posts deep into personal attacks and BS. People dont get it lol, having fun and joking is more than welcome, so is going a little off topic. But when threads turn into back and forth flames, they are going to be closed as per the rules. Illegal sources and personal attacks are the two most frowned upon things in this subforum.
Just keep it cool and we should all have respect for each other, if anyone has a problem send it to a mod, myself or Salmon or any others.

That was a lot of unnecessary typing and arguing over a forum..but to each his own.

Anyway, about lorazepam. My doctor prescribes it to me only as a sleep aid...so this is actually a common use. I take 1-2mg usually and sleep well. I used to take it regularly and I would notice that I'd need one for anxiety around every 6 hours or so.
