Somewhat lactose sensitive. Need an alternative to milk titrating for lorazepam.  Tried water but seperated out relatively fast. any suggestions?

You could use less milk, I have heard of lactose intolerant people tolerating the small amounts used for titration. I've also heard of people using soy milk. Lorazepam isn't fat soluble so it doesn't really matter that much what you use as a suspension medium.

I don't really have any experience with lorazepam. I remember someone reading they had success using only 16ml's of water. And I read it may actually be sufficiently water soluble for water to possibly work... or possibly not. Then I saw another post yesterday where someone said they weren't comfortable using water as it settled super fast. I'd maybe try 100ml's of soy milk for viscosity and enough water in there for it to possibly dissolve. Tapering lorazepam is a tricky one, good luck!

i found that when i put my lorazepam in water it settles too fast to draw up my doses. leaves you wondering if your getting the dose you think you are... a brilliant friend of mine suggested that i try karo syrup. if you get the KARO syrup (the white corn syrup found in super markets by the pancake mixes) it seems to help the settling. the corn syrup is a little too thick to use by itself. i found that if you use a 2:1 or a 3:1 ratio of syrup to water (depending on how thick you like it) i found a 2:1 ratio is just about the right thickness. just dissolve your lorazepam in water first then add the karo syrup and stir it up real good. the drug wont settle as fast and give you time to do your thing.

Vardenafil

I agree your friend and you are brilliant.  Ran it by my pharmacist who confirms its a good choice(a viscosity thing Im told).  Right now I am looking into methylcellulose fiber (used for regularity) because I have an inflamed hip and sugar is not supposed to be good for inflamination. Otherwise I would use it.  Im sure others will benefit from your info, thanks!
