As far as I know, it is used in hospitals to relax people and it is strong. They used it on my Grandpa after he had an aneurism in his aorta. He went crazy on it! He ripped his diapers off and had to be restrained. When we had him switched to something else, he was not like that. My Mom was on it, and she pulled her tracheotomy right out of her throat and they had to restrain her too... she told me there were bugs on the ceiling... we had requested no Ativan for her, but, sure enough, that's what she was on! Once she was off it she didn't act like that anymore. I would never try that drug personally.
