Ativan (lorazepam) overdose is a medical emergency that requires immediate attention. If someone is experiencing an Ativan overdose, call 911 or your local emergency number right away.

The best thing to give for an Ativan overdose is medical attention. In the meantime, make sure the person is conscious and breathing. Do not induce vomiting or give the person any food, drink, or medication unless instructed to do so by medical professionals. Provide as much information as possible to the emergency responders about the person’s condition, including how much Ativan they may have taken, any other medications or drugs they have used, and any pre-existing medical conditions.
