Hi, how long can the effects of Lorazepam overdose, withdrawal take? Is it normal for someone to have symptoms for seven days after taking the last dose?

I went to the hospital but they just sent me home and didn't do anything. I took 1 mg. on Thursday, 1 mg. on Friday, 4 mg. on Saturday (partially empty stomach) and 2 mg. on Sunday morning. Had all the side effects beginning Sunday evening. I've been taking Activated Charcoal and have been drinking a lot of fluids but am wondering how long will/could this take?

Hello Mike,

As you're still having side effects from the lorazapam overdose, I would
suggest making a doctor's appointment for a follow up visit. I wish you
well.   Eve
