Re: Potency of benzos on a full stomach
A few credible Google results say that food lowers the absorption of Ativan (and benzos in general), but I didn't see any numbers regarding the extent of the absorption inhibition. It makes sense to take it on an empty stomach, though. If there's nothing else for your stomach to digest when you take the pill, then your stomach will digest the pill as quickly and efficiently as possible...Right?
