Re: Ativan...how long does it last?
You're taking a very small dose of Ativan- equivalent to .25mg of Xanax.
From my experience with these meds, they usually wore off for me between 4-6 hours.
Does your Dr. know you are taking the Tylenol #2? If he does, the reason he might not have mentioned anything is because the amount of Codeine in Tylenol #2 is so minute, that the effects between the two are probably non-existent. Obviously, consult a doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned, but I'm just letting you know
A lot of these CNS effects are magnified in the elderly--that is where a lot of the warnings come from.
It would be a lot different if you were taking 60-120mg of Morphine and 6mg of Ativan, but you're not... Your doses are much, much smaller than that.
Hope that helps.
