Mylan Medications - Identify Your Pill
What is Mylan 457? What kind of medication is the gray round pill with MYLAN 457 written on its front side? The letters and numbers are divided by a score, so the pill can be easily broken into two.
Mylan 457 is Lorazepam (generic Ativan) 1mg tablet. Lorazepam is a sedative or anti-anxiety medication from the benzodiazepine family.
Lorazepam is also manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals in dosages of 0.5 mg (Mylan M 321 Pill) and 2 mg (Mylan 777).
Lorazepam is ten times more potent than another benzodiazepine, Diazepam. So, the less the dose (especially the initial dose) of the medication is, the better. As a rule, in the beginning of treatment Lorazepam is administered to healthy adults in 0.5mg oral doses (which equals one half of Mylan 457 pill), then the dosage can be gradually increased up to 2mg (two Mylan 457 pills) at a time.
Lorazepam's sedative quality can cause undesired increased sleepiness or dormancy. To avoid this problem, the initial total daily Lorazepam dose should not exceed 2mg, or two Mylan 457 pills (then the body soon develops tolerance to the amnesic effects of Lorazepam).

You benefit directly when Mylan Generics are used in place of name-brand medicines. First, because you will be receiving a high quality medicine, and second, because Mylan Generics are generally more affordable.
However, you may try and order Lorazepam (Ativan) marketed by other manufacturers, too!
