May I know why you want to dissolve ativan pill into injectable form?

Just for your information, this is a risky practice which can result in embolism blocking the blood vessels & associated complications ( breathing difficulty, infection, hypotension etc.).

You should discuss with your doctor for injectable form prescription if it is indeed required.

It is not recommended to use injectable form of ativan without any supervision, as it ncreases the likelihood of overdose.
