worried

  1. Can you take the injectable lorazepam orally? I've noticed empty carpuject lorazepam.


    Thanks,

    You can put anything in your mouth, but chances are that it was injected.
    Unfortunately...............

    You can swallow it, but it probably doesn't do any good. It'll break down before it's at all effective.

    Can you be more specific? You can give Ativan PO as tablets, IM undiluted (carpujet form) or IV, Diluted (also carpujet form) with equal amounts of NS because it's so irritating to the veins.

    What do you mean by "empty carpujet form"?

    why do you ask???? empty carpuject? do you think someone is taking this stuff illegally or giving it via the wrong route? just wondering where you are headed w/this, i guess.

    That was my question, as well. Maybe a little more info could help us gain a better perspective on this.
