Hi, very interesting question.Lorazepam is mainly used as shortterm measure for anxiety or agitation.Its main action is via GABA system. It doesnt have the effect on blood vessels.This medication needs to be used cautiously in Porphyria due to its porphyrogenic effects in vitro.There are no significant studies to say about its whether it thin the blood.I have no reports to date in my clinical practice so far.I hope this answers your question.If so please Accept the answer.Thank you.
