Brief Answer: Dosage varies. Not possible to prescribe online... Detailed Answer: Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query. Lorazepam is a benzodiazepine medication, which is used in the short-term treatment of aniety and sleep problems. It is usually available as a tablet or as an injection. It is rarely used in a gel form. Ativan gel or ABH gel are some of the gel preparations containing Lorazepam, but research evidence shows that in the gel form, the absorption and effectiveness of the medication is poor and unpredictable. Regarding the dosage, it depends on the nature and severity of the problems for which you have been prescribed the medication for. The ml to mg conversion depends on the brand and preparation of medication and the exact constituents and concentration should be mentioned on the back of the gel tube. Unfortunately, due to restrictions, it is not possible to prescribe medication online through this website. Wish you all the best. Regards, Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar Consultant Psychiatrist
