Choice of the best lorazepam tablets depends most on having a legal prescription. The doctor and the pharmacist filling the prescription are most likely to be most involved in choosing the best tablet based on dosage and available stock. The dosage amount may make some pills better choices than others, and patients might ask for stronger or weaker tablets, at times. Patients should also make sure to obtain tablets that meet certain standards, and should only get their prescription filled at reputable locations.

In most regions, lorazepam can’t be legally purchased without a doctor’s prescription. It is a potentially dangerous drug that can cause side effects like heavy sedation. Use over time can result in addiction. When a prescription is not available there are no "best choice" lorazepam tablets. People obtaining the drug without a prescription may face grave medical and legal consequences.

Frequently, patients receive a prescription and take it to a local drugstore to be filled. The pharmacist reads the doctor’s prescription and uses a generic drug or trade-name version of lorazepam, in the amount and strength prescribed. Patients do have some choice concerning the tablet size, as assessed by dosage strength.

Essentially, lorazepam tablets are available in 0.5, 1 and 2 milligrams. Patients taking larger doses may want the maximum strength pills, to avoid having to swallow additional tablets. When dosage amounts are low, you may prefer the lowest strength tablets, so that pills don’t have to be divided. Tablet choice may be discussed with the prescribing doctor. Some pharmacists are also allowed to make an equivalent switch, providing it is equal in medication amount to the original prescription.

Differences between generic versus brand-name medications are often debated, and some generic drugs slightly differ in action from brand-name forms. Lorazepam does not show this tendency. Provided generic lorazepam is certified by a reputable agency, like the U.S. Pharmacopeia® (USP), it should work the same as any trade-name version of the medicine.

Brand-name and generic drugs have the same active ingredients. Moreover, most of the inactive ingredients in lorazepam tablets are identical, including lactose, cellulose, and magnesium stearate. Some drugs may use different dyes, which could be a matter of concern for people with sensitivity to them.

Lorazepam tablet choice should also consider pharmacy reputation. Most pharmacies are regulated by region, and they must meet safety standards and/or have licenses to do business. Some Internet pharmacies don’t have the same operating rules, and they can’t all be trusted equally. To make a good choice, look to pharmacies with approval from government or professional certifying agencies.

For example, in the U.S., patients can use Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS), which are inspected carefully by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy®. If you can’t verify the safety of a pharmacy, you’re advised not to buy lorazepam tablets or any other drugs from it. Pharmacies of unknown quality may sell medications that often don't possess the right active ingredients.
