Lorazepam (trademarked as Ativan or Orfidal) is an extremely addictive benzodiazepine class prescription drug, often prescribed for anxiety. Benzodiazepines—or benzos—are classified as central nervous system (CNS) depressants, meaning they are drugs that slow down the nervous system. Lorazepam is also used as a recreational drug. In such cases, it is taken to get high, or is continued long-term against the advice of a physician or without a prescription. Additionally, Lorazepam is sometimes used by predators as a date rape drug, or for the purpose of robbery.
