This is Dr. David
for children, lorazepam maximum dose is 2mg maximum per dose.
so for the child, the dose can be brought down easily to 2mg three times a day
there would be no long term side effects to the receptors. why is the child getting lorazepam? for anxiety symptoms or seizures prevention?
if you have severe anxiety symptoms, and the diazepam dose is not enough, you will continue to have anxiety and ptsd symptoms. diazepam doesn't treat depression. you would need another anti-depressent agent to help with depression symptoms.
