M 321 Pill
What is M 321 pill? What kind of medication is the little gray round pill with "M" written on one side and "321" on the other?
Mylan's M 321 pill is Lorazepam (generic Ativan) 0.5 mg. Lorazepam is a sedative or anti-anxiety medication from the benzodiazepine family.
Lorazepam is also manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals in dosages of 1 mg (Mylan 457)
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 M 321 pill), then the dosage can be gradually increased up to 2mg (four M 321 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 four Mylan M 321 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!
