Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Dear friend,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I believe that I can help.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Lorazepam reaches its maximum blood concentration in two hours, and the half life is about 12 hours, no matter what the age of the person.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Lorazepam in large quantities can stay in the body for several weeks and even up to a month in some cases.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Lorazepam can be detected in blood, hair, and urine samples during drug testing, and in hair can be affected by the hair length or hair coloration - and can be detected in hair up to 3 months.

Traces can be found in urine for at least a week and sometimes as long as 6 weeks depending on how long it has been taken and on the dosage.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I wish I could have told you shorter times for it to disappear, but you need accurate information.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I wish you great success.

Should have mentioned, the doesage of lorazepam is 2mg in the am and 2mg in the pm. Does that make a difference?
