Symptoms:  Cannot sleep and its causing anxiety
Doctor

A:   Hello,

Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Since 24 hours have elapsed, and then you took Lorazepam, there is no risk of any interaction.
However, you can sleep longer than usual in the following couple of days because the extended-release tablets are very slowly metabolized.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
