LOREEV XR®. A once-daily capsule for the treatment of anxiety.

LOREEV XR is an anxiety treatment designed to fit into your day. It simplifies the need to take lorazepam tablets 3 times a day, with a convenient, once-daily capsule.

What is LOREEV XR?

LOREEV XR contains lorazepam, the same active drug in Ativan®, but in an extended-release form. Because the medication in LOREEV XR is released gradually, it can be taken once a day.

Ativan® is a trademark of Bausch Health Companies Inc, or its affiliates.

Why LOREEV XR may be an appropriate choice

There are a number of reasons why your doctor may feel LOREEV XR is a good choice to manage your anxiety, including:

  • Once-daily dosing

    LOREEV XR is taken once a day. This is a convenient way to reduce the number of pills you have to remember to take each day.

  • Extended-release formulation

    Extended release means there’s medication at work in your body throughout the day.

    LOREEV XR may feel different because it is an extended-release medication. Your body is used to the immediate release of lorazepam, so it may need to adjust to the extended release.

    The effectiveness of using LOREEV XR or lorazepam for more than 4 months has not been studied. Your prescriber should consult with you periodically to evaluate longer-term use.

How is LOREEV XR different?

The graph shows an important difference between LOREEV XR once-daily medication and lorazepam immediate-release medication (taken 3 times per day as directed):

  • LOREEV XR provides continuous delivery of medication over 24 hours. With immediate-release lorazepam, there may be highs and lows of medication in your system

  • If you have trouble swallowing medication, you can open the capsule and sprinkle the entire contents over a tablespoon of applesauce. You should drink water after taking LOREEV XR in this manner
  • Do not crush or chew LOREEV XR
