Taking librax for anxiety?
i dont have ibs or stomach ulcers but my wife told me taking librax may help with anxiety, is it safe for me to use? Asked by Camila Ellyson 1 year ago.

Librax (chlordiazepoxide/clidinium bromide) is for IBS and other GI problems like you said. Librium (chlordiazepoxide) is a benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety. Chlordiazepoxide is included in the medication because anxiety is known to make IBS worse and it has other possible benefits for GI problems. Another drug, Donnatal is also used for the same condition but it has a combination of four drugs, including the barbiturate phenobarbital. However it is most improper to use Librax for anxiety. Does you wife have a prescription for Librax? How many pills are you considering taking? Each Librax has 5 mg of chlordiazepoxide. Librium comes in 5.10. and 25 mg. For moderate anxiety 5-10 mg three or four times daily is normal. For severe anxiety 20-25 mg three or four times a day is normal. So I would expect it would reduce your anxiety but you would be (unless you get a prescription) breaking the law and Librium is a controlled substance and can be abused and it can cause dependency. In general it is a very safe drug but you really should be under the care of a doctor. Plus if you only need Librium but take Librax you are taking a drug (clidinium bromide) you have no use for.

I have been given 5/2.5 MG tablets of Librax for digestive issues, I take one in the morning one at night, what I have noticed, is that aside from my stomach problems improving, my ANXIETY is GONE, I take .5 mg xanax AS NEEDED and it works great, but has a drowsy feel to it, and I feel depressed a few days after I've used it, I don't need the xanax everyday, but I generally do have some level of anxiety, but since doctors orders for my stomach was to take Librax twice a day, I feel like a new man! is this common to use this for anxiety? can it be used long term? is it addictive? will I build tolerance to the dosage of librax like some say you will with xanax? Answered by Sherman Powlen 1 year ago.

Librax is a combination of two drugs, one of which is Clidinium bromide - this is the part that's primarily useful for the digestive issues. The other component is a drug also known as Librium. It is a member of the same family as Xanax, the benzodiazepines. It is however a less potent version of the drug - the 5mg of Librium in your Librax pill is about 1/5th as strong as 0.5mg of Xanax. However it lasts much longer in the body than Xanax, which is useful in some circumstances. It's very common to use Librium for anxiety. It's a good choice when you have constant, low level anxiety that's generalized - not fixated on a specific thing. Xanax is a better choice when you have very high anxiety states or panic attacks that tend to spike, or occur at specific triggers. It can be used long term. Part of the confusion about building tolerance to benzos like Xanax and Librium is that the drugs have multiple effects - you've noticed that the Xanax makes you sleepy, but it also relieves your anxiety. What happens is that you become tolerant to the effect of the drug that makes you drowsy, the sedative effect. The anti-anxiety effect however, you do not develop tolerance to. So while you couldn't use these drugs forever as sleeping pills, you can use them for managing anxiety successfully for decades and decades. All benzodiazepines carry a risk for addiction, but benzo addiction isn't quite like what you normally see. People who abuse benzos and become addicts typically have a long history of substance abuse - people who have been addicted to opiate painkiller drugs like vicodin, or heroin, or oxycodone make up the overwhelming majority of people who are benzodiazpine addicts. If you don't have a history of abusing drugs and alcohol, and your family doesn't have a history, this isn't something you should worry about. Unless you take very, very high doses of these drugs for a long period of time they have no real long term consequences. People who do take them for many many years at extremely high doses develop some neurological complications similar to those in long term alcoholics, but these doses are usually many times what the drugs are supposed to be used at (think, people taking 20-50mg of Xanax every day for 30 years). They've never been documented in normal therapeutic use. Feel free to email me through my profile if you need more clarification, this category of drugs is one I've spent some time doing research on and something of an area of expertise.

Answered by Josefine Marcinka 1 year ago.

Librax is a combination of two drugs, chlordiazepoxide and clidinium. Chlordiazepoxide is best known as Librium, a drug containing only chlordiazepoxide. Clidinium is an antispasmodic that helps with GI problems. You are correct that Librax can reduce anxiety. Librium (chlordiazepoxide) is a benzodiazepine like Xanax. Librium was the first benzodiazepine made but seldom prescribed anymore. Librium, like Xanax, can cause addiction but this is very rare. Librium is actually considered to be one of the least (if not the least) addictive and least abused benzodiazepine, ironically Xanax is one of the most abused. Librax is not used for anxiety but the chlordiazepoxide can help because relaxing the body and reducing anxiety can help with certain GI problems. Plus many people with GI problems suffer from an anxiety disorder. Librium not Librax is prescribed specifically for anxiety relief. Librax, Librium, and Xanax are all safe to use long term. All benzodiazepines cause the development of tolerance. However contrary to common beliefs the anti-anxiety effects of benzodiazepines do not develop tolerance or, in some cases, over years or decades mild tolerance occurs. So it is actually fine to use benzodiazepines long term but other drugs without abuse potential are preferred. The reason you probably have little or no tolerance to Xanax is because you only take it as needed, not every day. My advice would be to talk with your doctor about stopping the Xanax and only using Librium. Librax can be taken up to four times daily (a total of 20 mg of Librium). That might help provide relief from stomach and anxiety problems all day. But if only taking it twice a day is enough then stick with that. You could also ask about regular Librium which comes in 5, 10, and 25 mg doses. The normal maximum dose of Librium is 100 mg/day. Librium is not a potent drug like Xanax is so 0.5 mg of Xanax is equal to 25 mg of Librium. However everyone is different so 5 mg of Librium might be better than 0.5 mg of Xanax for you. If I were you I would just want to take Librium without the Xanax because you said the Xanax can make you depressed. So you could stick with what you have, or increase the Librax and either keep and stop the Xanax, or you could replace Xanax with Librium. But chlordiazepoxide does not start to work as quickly as Xanax. As a result Xanax is often preferred for panic attacks because it acts to quickly and it stops quickly. Good luck I am glad Librax has helped so much. Answered by Elvina Jansma 1 year ago.

Should librax be taken for anxiety only? I have been prescribed it but do not have IBS.?
I take it only because of anxiety not IBS. Asked by Daysi Mascari 1 year ago.

Chlordiazepoxide(Librax) is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peens). Chlordiazepoxide affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety. Benzo's are used for Anxiety. Librax is a combination of two separate drugs. One of the drugs is a benzodiazepine, a family of drugs which are most often prescribed for anxiety and tension. The other drug is an anti-spasmodic, used to relax the muscles in the gut wall. So it IS used for IBS but in your case it's being used for Anxiety. A lot of medicines can be used for many different ailments. Answered by Karine Albertsen 1 year ago.

Answered by Leontine Basinski 1 year ago.

Librax has a component that's called a benzodiazepine, which is the same family of medication that Ativan is in. It's not a good idea to take two benzos together--both can cause central nervous system depression. Also, benzos are addictive and have a life-threatening withdrawal if you abruptly get off them. I would recommend talking to your doctor about both of the medications and asking him if he feels it is appropriate for you to take both. In my experience, Ativan is not a good long-term medication for anxiety given the addictive nature of it. There are lots of other medications that are not addictive that help with anxiety over the long-term, such as SSRI antidepressants. Hope this helps. Answered by Doris Olivares 1 year ago.

If it says not to drink on the bottle it is generally a bad idea to drink while taking a drug. It would cause an over dose, and depending on the persons size would be the type of reaction. Some people would go to sleep, others in a coma, some get alcohol poisoning it just depends. Answered by Lavonia Aaland 1 year ago.


Is Librax good for stomach and is it anything like.........?
xanax as I can't take that stuff because it's addictive. Thanks. Asked by Giovanna Westlake 1 year ago.

Librax is used, in combination with other therapy, for the treatment of peptic ulcer, irritable bowel syndrome (spastic colon), and acute enterocolitis (inflammation of the colon and small intestine). Librax is a combination of a benzodiazepine (chlordiazepoxide) and an antispasmodic medication (clidinium). Because of its sedative effects, you should not operate heavy machinery, drive, or engage in other hazardous tasks that require you to be mentally alert while you are taking Librax.

What is the medication librax used for?
Asked by Slyvia Alpaugh 1 year ago.

What is Librax? Librax is comprised of two different forms of medication--chlordiazepoxide and clidinium. Chlordiazepoxide is in a class of drugs call benzodiazepines, which are often prescribed for anxiety and tension. Clidiniuman is an anticholinergic. It prevents spasms in the muscles of the gut and bladder by relaxing them, and reduces the production of stomach acid. Why is Librax prescribed? Librax may be prescribed for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), stomach ulcers (infrequently), diverticulosis or an infection in the digestive tract. Answered by Edwina Hofstra 1 year ago.
