Lorazepam is a tranquilizer, or benzodiazepine, primarily prescribed for persistent and disruptive anxiety. It functions by slowing the central nervous system and producing an overall feeling of sedation. Your doctor may also prescribe Lorazepam for other conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, epilepsy and insomnia. Some doctors even suggest Lorazepam for patients experiencing symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.
