    No the LD50 is 1,850mg per kg of body weight.

    A 60kg person weighs 132 pounds.

    The LD50 is the lethal dose in 50% of people (or laboratory animals)

    who ingested it.

     10mg of ativan is a rather large dose. The highest prescribing dose usually is 2mg 4x a day, or 8mg total per day, and people who take this have to work their way up to that dose level after years of being on it, usually.

    The usual range is 2 to 6 mg/day given in divided doses, the largest dose being taken before bedtime, but the daily dosage may vary from 1 to 10 mg/day.

    HOWEVER, one 10mg dose can KILL SOME PEOPLE!

    Everyone is different. Especially true with underlying issues, other drugs that are taken, and if other substances like alcohol are consumed. All by itself, I don't think many would die from it.

    I'm not sure, but if anyone is feeling suicidal, here is a toll-free 24/7 helpline:

    Not usually. I once took 50mg at once, a friend called a doctor out (I'm in the UK) and the doctor left me home alone sleeping on the sofa. Obviously everyone is different but it seems a waste of perfectly good Ativan to take it all at once.

    10 mg/day is a normal largish dose.

    no, but it doesn't do its thing without adverse effects.
