I was taught to start with Ativan while checking liver function with a test like a bili or INR. If these were normal then you need to switch over to something longer acting like valium or librium. A normal liver in a patient with severe alcoholism will metabolize Ativan far too fast to ever catch up. I would love to see what would happen if someone studied this approach vs the one talked about on this episode with Ativan, Phenobarb and Haldol.
