Wyeth is the inventor of the drug Ativan.Until 2003 drug was effective in treating anxiety , what I didn't know was a fact of big importance.Drug had huge potential of getting patients depended on it.I had lots of labels of the drug.People are different,they react differently to side effect of the medication.Dependency it is very strong argument to control it. Keepin only in the hospitals when such as control is possible . Now Wyeth washed his hands sold the drug to Biovail and does not respond to victims complaints.Biovail makes less effective[anxiety,GAD] but potent in causing addiction.People dont like to put chemicals into their bodys,but if they have to treat them with respect ,dont rush for profits ,they will came ,label your drugs with honesty. It is to Wyeth,Biovail.

wyeth invented Ativan . wyeth manufactured and distributed ativan (brand formulation) in United States until 2003. Then sold the distribution rights to canadian based Biovail. So in 2004 I was introduced to Biovail/Wyeth formulation of the drug. I have dignosis and brand Wyeth Ativan was a great help to manage my condition.Iam not a good responder to any known generic version of the drug. The only thing i know is that, the first day ,i tried Biovail brand Ativan i knew the drug was not working.I called the Biovail. They contacted Wyeth and wrote me a letter stateing that there is nothing new or different in action of the drug, nature of my cmplaint is my problem they can't doexplain it the fact that the day after trying Biovail drug I was able to come back to still available Wyeth brand formulation and restarted the treatment .Everything went back to normal. THIS kind of treating patients , consumers can happend only in todays american reality.I've been denied sucssessful treatment because the human greed won over human compassion. I will never stop to look for answers. Keep them honest. We are talking people,s lifes here. It is a whole TRUE about Wyeth/Biovail medication Ativan.

wyeth invented ativan, wyeth was marketing ativan,wyeth is fully responsible for change of the formulation of Ativan after sell it to Biovail.Wyeth is resposible for my health problems today.Wyeth off patent Ativan poses great danger for people for years helped by patented drug. Ativan was working for me great,I didn't have to change the dosage for long time.The problems i have now with Wyeth new formulations(Biovail),Canada,T avor,Temesta disabled me. When Ativan was protected by patent it was safe off patent drug is toxic.Four years was enough to destroy my health.

After 2003 inveted by Wyeth drug Ativan, Tavor , Temesta as an off patent drug lost it,s original way of working . There is more serious side effect,not known when secured by patent : polyuria. This ones potent antianxiety drug poses great danger in changed formulation.

Temesta in Belgium causes polyuria. Now Ativan in Canada causes same problem. Wyeth is a manufacturer of both formulation. Why after 2003 drug acquisition (Wyeth/Biovail) WYETH invented drug changed in formulation for worse. I just filled my Rx in Canada - 3rd refill and experienced this side effect. Worldwide Wyeth manufacturing drug with serious not known before 2003 side effect.

Lot numbers of the medication dispensed in pharmacys have to be included in all data available to the costumer/patient. It helps patients to have more power in cases of suspected drug's liability.

canadian formulation of original Ativan marked with the lot #E28959 is defective . I did purchased the drug and i have headache,lost my appetite . Wyeth or Pfizer changing formulation of the medication put patients health in jepardy. I had this problem ,when Wyeth sold the drug to Biovail. Please stop them. It is a crime and nobody is investigating. Is there anybody who experinced similar problems with this drug ,this formulation marked with the Lot # E28959 , Please respond.

In plain English todays Ativan ,drug an inventors story has to be legaly evaluated. In 2003 drug made enough money and after 2 decades of hard marketing Wyeth decided to sell it, but kept its secret. After 2003 dug suddenly changed from antianxiety drug into sleeping pill with side effects like low arginine vasopressin levels ( very dangerous condition ) Wyeth new a lot about the drug but kept selling it. I hope at some point Wyeth will be find responsible for practicies like this. Please report anything what causes low levels of arginine vasopressin. You will help lots of people in pain.
