Lorazepam And Allergies
Thankfully, most patients will not experience a serious allergic reaction to lorazepam. Allergic reactions are quite rare on this medication. However, they can happen. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to lorazepam include trouble breathing, significant dizziness, rash and hives, swelling, and itching. The swelling and itching are particularly severe when they affect the patient’s face, tongue, or throat. Individuals should call for emergency medical attention if they experience any of these symptoms. In addition to initial treatment, patients often need to stop taking lorazepam. Their doctor will prescribe them an alternative medication that will not cause this type of reaction.
