A study in the management of anxiety with lorazepam.


A four-week double-blind comparison between lorazepam and placebo involving 60 patients with anxiety revealed that lorazepam in a mean dose of approximately 3 mg on a b.i.d. regimen is significantly and clinically more effective than placebo for almost all items of the Global, Hamilton, and 35-Item scales at nearly all evaluation periods. Moreover, lorazapem was associated with a 50% greater improvement rate than was placebo. Except for only one patient who was withdrawn from the study because of severe sedation, lorazepam was well tolerated and did not interact adversely with concomitant nonpsychoactive medication.
