There is no help from BIOVAIL, if you suffer anxiety related disorder. Their antianxiety drug Ativan is not helping me. It was an effective miedication untill 2003,when Wyeth owned the drug.I am not responding to generic formulation or any other anianxiety medication. How come pharmaceutical company in United States has a right and power to change the drug , to the point that it makes you sick. Wyeth ATIVAN since decades when used as directed never caused such problem.

I did buy deffective Biovail ativan in february 2008.(15 2mg tablets $70 lot# B67469) I checked the labeling insert and it remains the same as the one from the times when Wyeth was in full charge of this effective for some patients medication. Why Biovail didn't change the insert of its drug. As I remember as of 2007 they suppouse to change labeling insert of the drug. I am a patient happend to relay on pharmaceutical industry ,. Whatever is behind Biovail fraud I wiil never stop looking for answers.

Biovail ownes the rights to antianxiety medication Ativan which is a defective drug on american market.It is a brand name lorazepam invented By Wyeth ,sold to canadian based Biovail in 2003. For years this medication for some people was a very important medication to treaat anxiety related disorders. Biovail brand name Ativan is defective . Biovail in Wyeth/Biovail deal was talking about enhancing the drugs known on the market,known by doctors and patients.Biovail Ativan is a very expensive,not effective generic formulation of lorazepam. It is a fraud .

biovail / wyeth drug deal from 2003 regarding the acquisition of Ativan smells bad.I checked in 2006 Tavor and Temesta in Europe. The older lots of Tavor were working ,the newest version are differnt,lacking efficacy. Biovail brand Ativan is fraud,Wyeth lost the patent , There is a good case to explain this by both company why medication suddenly became not effective worldwide. Wyeth has no comments Biovail is defending it's manufactured by Wyeth medication.I will go to court to end this activity. It is so simple . Brand drug works like generic costs fortune. Changed completly after companys closed the deal! I have diagnosis ,i've been treated until 2004 succsessfuly with Wyeth Ativan and now after Biovail/Wyeth drug deal i am left with brocken immune system,anemias, WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS PART OF PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY?

Biovail is not doing well,because Biovail commited a fraud,didn't respect my complaint regarding the newly acqiured from Wyeth drug Ativan . Biovail dishonesty and lack of respect as a pharmaceutical company backfired. I do not know the role of Wyeth as a manufacturer for the company and the role of FDA in this fraudulent deal from 2003.

i am unable to function because of Biovail/Wyeth drug deal(Ativan). Drug has been changed and other options are not working for me. Biovail has no right to change the pharmaceutical product helpful in treating very serious medical condition.One case as mine is one too many.If the drug was so beneficial and other options are not possible Wyeth inventor of the drug has to explain why i do not respond to other benzodiazepines or generic formulations. What was so special about Wyeth formulation that made my condition possible to manage.

Just look at the Biovail stock value now! Four years ago I called Biovail and Wyeth about their 2003 drug Ativan acqisition with complaints that,off patent by then ,CNS antianxiety drug is not working as was invented . I was disregarded by Biovail with cruelty and ignorance. Since 2004 Biovail is constantly involved in speculations,manipulations,fra uds you name it .Wyeth/Biovail deal is a part of such cryminal activity. Human tragedy backfires.Always!

BIovail/Wyeth drug Ativan deal affects both companys responsability and ethic.Any drug when loosing patent , changing an owner can't be changed in the way Biovail/Wyeth drug deal was done. Biovail formulation of the drug has been changed. My first refill made me contact Biovail ,being told that there is no change in the formulation .At this time I was still able to go back to original Wyeth product.Wyeth medicine went to work after 30 minutes. Wyeth/Biovail drug acqiusition is unethical and needs more attention!

Benzo are not meant for longer then 2-4 weeks use, the manufacturers of ativan changed their drug info in 2007 to state this, they also mention that physical dependency can happen in as little a 1 week on the drug and once that occurs withdrawal symptoms can be an issue. The people who are getting sicker and getting new symptoms are most likely tolerant to the drug and experiencing withdrawal, ie. tolerance withdrawal, they need to try and stabilize and taper off carefully. Benzos are not drugs to be taken casually. Below are links to info if people are having issues with the drug. www.benzosupport.org and the Ativan drug info:

Ativan also has a short half life and therefore people can experience a worsening of withdrawal symptoms before their next dose, this is not manufacture corruption, but the nature of all benzos, they all can cause physical dependency, tolerance and withdrawal and new symptoms you never had before ever you took the drug. Below are some links that people who are having issues with the drug may find very helpful.

You may have a different problem. There is a little known phenomenon discovered because it caused mental breaks for office workers. The cubicle was created to deal with the vision startle reflex in crowded office situations to resolve it by 1968.

If you create those exposure circumstances either at work or with a computer work location at home you might have symptoms such as panic attacks, depression, fear, paranoia, and thoughts of suicide.

There is no treatment required to stop this problem. Locate those behaviors that cause Subliminal Distraction exposure and make slight changes to eliminate it. Most victims recover within a week or so. But there have been serious outcomes for some.

This problem does not require any treatment and avoiding exposure through Cubicle Level Protection will not interfere with any treatment you already have.

Cubicles block peripheral vision for a concentrating worker so they do not subliminally detect threat-movement to trigger a startle reflex attempt.

It would explain why your drug appears to have stopped working.

I have taken the medication Ativan for many years with good results. When the company was changed to Biovail, I started moticing changes in my health. For two months now, I have been having tremors and am light headed and feel faint, I am afraid to drive my car and go out to the grocery store. I have been hospitalized and taken all kinds of tests and the doctors don't come up with much. After reading on line the comments of Ativan since the company was changed, I'm beginning to think that my health problems are stemming from taking Ativan. I wish more people on this drug would respond if they are having health problems, also where can one get in touch to report this. I am frightened and worried about my well being.

Biovail Ativan is not the same effective medicine as original invented by Wyeth product. New formulation of the drug after acquisition in 2003 in any way helps to treat people with anxiety related disorders. Acqisition took place in 2003.Drug is defective and please if you know something write about it.

Biovail formulation of the drug Ativan is not as potent or effective as an original invented by Wyeth formulation. I have a problem to stop the drug. I will never agree with Biovail and Wyeth manipulation with psychotropic medication. I became a victim of yes criminal actions of pharmaceutical industry. We need more control in this field !

Wyeth drug Ativan inventor keep selling very toxic formulation of his blockbuster pharmaceutical . This dirty business takes place worldwide. New formula causes polyuria,blood disorders. Has nothing to do in working with patented drug. Efficacy is none, addictive potencial still in place. No effort from the inventor of the drug to show the ways of safe drug discontinuation. Biovail formulation from the beginning was synchronized with Wyeth plans to wipe off all incrimination conected wih Ativan.

Wyeth/Biovail drug Ativan acqusition from 2003 has to be evaluated. It is a cime and discrimination in metal health field. Neglect if only at the time of approval three decades ago and low unethical acquisition in 2003. Time to stop enhancing brand formulations in waythat generic drug causes so many problems with potency. Time to stop Pharmaceutical manipulations.
