So I have really bad anxiety attacks and I found out today that I have a heart valve that's not closing properly. I go for more tests next week, and my Dr started me on tranxene 3.75 mg. I've never taken anything like this before. I started getting an anxiety attack about 30 mins ago and took my first pill and I'm really drowsy. I still feel a little anxious but not as bad as I normally get. Any advice for this medication? Thanks. Answered by Tania Foshay 2 years ago.

Tranxene (clorazepate) is a benzodiazepine class anxiolytic and anticonvulsant. Like all benzodiazepine Tranxene often cases some sedation, especially when treatment is first started. Typically the sedating effects of Tranxene will dissipate over a few days and should be more/less gone. However some people do experience more percipient sedation. 3.75 mg is a small dose, if you are finding it fairly sedating then you are probably just more sensitive to medications like these. You will likely need to be on a higher dose for better anxiety control but at least it is helping somewhat. Although the sedating effects tend to dissipate, the anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects do not. According to the official Tranxene product monograph "The usual adult daily dose is 30 mg. The dose should be adjusted gradually within the range of 15 to 60 mg in accordance with the response of the patient. After the patient has been stabilized on a suitable dosage, the frequency of dosing may be decreased in some patients to twice daily or once daily with the major portion of the dosage given at night, provided that the physician can ascertain that such a schedule will produce the desired anxiolytic effect without a period of drowsiness or impairment of mental functions." Tranxene is a safe medication and when taken alone it is nearly one if the hardest drugs to overdose on. The most common side effect is drowsiness, other side effects include dizziness, various gastrointestinal complaints, blurred vision, dry mouth, headache, and mental confusion. Tranxene is the the best benzodiazepine for controlling panic attacks but it is very effective in controlling generlized anxiety. The FDA has approved Tranxene "for the management of anxiety disorders or for the short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety." Tranxene is also indicated as adjunctive therapy in the management of partial seizures and for the symptomatic relief of acute alcohol withdrawal." Health Canada has approved the medication "for the short-term symptomatic relief of excessive anxiety and tension in psychoneurotic patients including those with functional somatic complaints." And "It is also useful in the adjunctive management of acute alcohol withdrawal." Tranxene is typically used short-term but it can be safely and effectively used long-term if needed. Tranxene can cause physical dependence (not the same as addiction). If used long-term it should NOT be abruptly discontinued. Rapid discontinuation can lead to withdrawal symptoms. Addiction is possible although it is extremely rare. Tranxene is one of three benzodiazepines (the others being oxazepam and chlordiazepoxide) proven to have a LOWER potential for addiction compared to the rest. But don't worry about addiction as long as you take the medication as prescribed especially since you have a very legitimate need of an anxiolytic. Answered by Charlsie Shwab 2 years ago.

Tranxene is a type of benzodiazepine. its in the same family as Valium and Ativan. Its main use is an anti-anxiety agent. however Valium and Ativan is much better for this. My guess is that if other benzodiazepines don't work they will put you on this. It is also used for treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. Answered by Meaghan Stefan 2 years ago.

Tranxene like Xanax?
I was just prescribed Tranxene for anxiety. I asked the doc about Xanax and he wouldn't give it to me.

Tranxene is an old medication and many pharmacies don't stock it anymore. The truth is that the pharmacy you called probably does not have it and won't order it for you if your prescription is for a small quantity. They don't want to order a bottle of 100 tablet for a prescription for 30 tablets and get stuck with the rest. Try some other pharmacies. Answered by Charlyn Zinda 2 years ago.

I took xanax long ago for panic attacks. When I ran out and was still facing depression issues I started drinking alcohol for the first time. I started drinking so much I would pass out nightly. later I went through rehab and the doctor told me that xanax has the same base properties of alcohol. It is like concentrated alcohol. My body's addiction to xanax could not be relieved by any alcohol I could drink. He said it was not uncommon for people to have drinking problems after taking xanax.

Yes, they can decrease your blood pressure and pulse rate. I actually know of a couple of people that have died as a result of an overdose. However, it is not a painless way to go, nor is it a for sure way to commit suicide and you will more likely end up highly sick in the ER. I highly suggest that you contact someone to discuss why you are feeling so depressed and suicidal. 1-800-273-TALK (8255) You will be routed to the closest possible crisis center in your area.

All the benzos work about the same, the difference is how long they last. It's odd for a pharmacy to not have any benzodiazepines because they are very popular medications. Answered by Delora Rosenhagen 2 years ago.


What is the difference between Zanax and Tranxene?
Both of these medications are used for anxiety and nervousness. I think tranxene (Clorazepate) 7.5 mg is an older drug. But they are both prescribed for similar problems.

I am wondering what the difference is between them and which would be best for panic attacks? I have taken both and cannot tell much difference. My doctor prefers tranxene because he says it stays in your system longer and has a mild anti-depressant in it. Yet most people I know use Zanax for this purpose. Does anyone know the difference between these drugs and which if best? Or for what purpose each is prescribed? Answered by Charlott Grindeland 2 years ago.

Honestly I don't know much about Tranxene, but I do know Xanax has a short "half-life" which means it hits faster, you reach its full therapeutic effect faster, and it also goes out of your system faster. For a quick fix, its good. It is not good for an all day- type drug. I also know that Xanax can be quite easily addictive. hth. Answered by Cleopatra Hiefnar 2 years ago.

not off the top of my head. I used to be on Xanax though and it really helped. Answered by Julia Yoxall 2 years ago.


Does Tranxene work right away?
My doctor just prescribed me Tranxene, I took 2 pills, one last night, and one this morning, and I feel like throwing up now, and I'm still really nervous, does anyone know if this pills takes a while to work or does it work right away? Asked by Yi Vatter 2 years ago.

Your best bet is to consult your doctor. Failing that, you can look it up on the web. Try RX List. They never tell you how long it takes, but you can get hints from the sites. Like how Tranxene is used for acute alcohol with drawl. Over a 4 day period it is supposed to do it's job. So you may be out of the woods soon. Good luck. Answered by Nyla Jupin 2 years ago.

Tranxene, like Valium, has one of the fastest onsets when taken orally among the benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety meds). It begins to alleviate my anxiety within 20-25 minutes of taking it. Really the only faster anxiety meds in this class are the sublingual forms of Ativan and Klonopin that dissolve underneath the tongue. I would talk to your doc about the dosage, side effects- especially if it's making you sick & nauseated. Answered by Magen Oviedo 2 years ago.

Okay, here is the scoop. I have been on Tranxene for about a year now. I have been taking 15mg a day. I am looking to get off of this stuff altogether. However, I have heard that getting of benzos can be pretty hard. But, I am tired of the pills and moreover, I will be deploying in about six months. After doing some research, I have found that a taper would be necessary. I also read that it needs to be slow if on a high dose or for a long time. Can anyone answer this: How much is a high dose in regards to Tranxene and how long is a long time? Also, if anyone could help or answer how I would go about tapering off this medication with in 5 months, it would be greatly appreciated. Answered by Caren Bruschi 2 years ago.

Tranxene (clorazepate) is a benzodiazepine class anxiolytic and anticonvulsant. Like all benzodiazepine Tranxene often cases some sedation, especially when treatment is first started. Typically the sedating effects of Tranxene will dissipate over a few days and should be more/less gone. However some people do experience more percipient sedation. 3.75 mg is a small dose, if you are finding it fairly sedating then you are probably just more sensitive to medications like these. You will likely need to be on a higher dose for better anxiety control but at least it is helping somewhat. Although the sedating effects tend to dissipate, the anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects do not. According to the official Tranxene product monograph "The usual adult daily dose is 30 mg. The dose should be adjusted gradually within the range of 15 to 60 mg in accordance with the response of the patient. After the patient has been stabilized on a suitable dosage, the frequency of dosing may be decreased in some patients to twice daily or once daily with the major portion of the dosage given at night, provided that the physician can ascertain that such a schedule will produce the desired anxiolytic effect without a period of drowsiness or impairment of mental functions." Tranxene is a safe medication and when taken alone it is nearly one if the hardest drugs to overdose on. The most common side effect is drowsiness, other side effects include dizziness, various gastrointestinal complaints, blurred vision, dry mouth, headache, and mental confusion. Tranxene is the the best benzodiazepine for controlling panic attacks but it is very effective in controlling generlized anxiety. The FDA has approved Tranxene "for the management of anxiety disorders or for the short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety." Tranxene is also indicated as adjunctive therapy in the management of partial seizures and for the symptomatic relief of acute alcohol withdrawal." Health Canada has approved the medication "for the short-term symptomatic relief of excessive anxiety and tension in psychoneurotic patients including those with functional somatic complaints." And "It is also useful in the adjunctive management of acute alcohol withdrawal." Tranxene is typically used short-term but it can be safely and effectively used long-term if needed. Tranxene can cause physical dependence (not the same as addiction). If used long-term it should NOT be abruptly discontinued. Rapid discontinuation can lead to withdrawal symptoms. Addiction is possible although it is extremely rare. Tranxene is one of three benzodiazepines (the others being oxazepam and chlordiazepoxide) proven to have a LOWER potential for addiction compared to the rest. But don't worry about addiction as long as you take the medication as prescribed especially since you have a very legitimate need of an anxiolytic. Answered by Harry Mcpadden 2 years ago.

Tranxene is also indicated as adjunctive therapy in the management of partial seizures and for the symptomatic relief of acute alcohol withdrawal." Health Canada has approved the medication "for the short-term symptomatic relief of excessive anxiety and tension in psychoneurotic patients including those with functional somatic complaints." And "It is also useful in the adjunctive management of acute alcohol withdrawal." Tranxene is typically used short-term but it can be safely and effectively used long-term if needed. Tranxene can cause physical dependence (not the same as addiction). If used long-term it should NOT be abruptly discontinued. Rapid discontinuation can lead to withdrawal symptoms. Addiction is possible although it is extremely rare. Tranxene is one of three benzodiazepines (the others being oxazepam and chlordiazepoxide) proven to have a LOWER potential for addiction compared to the rest. But don't worry about addiction as long as you take the medication as prescribed especially since you have a very legitimate need of an anxiolytic. Answered by Mario Hemesath 2 years ago.

It is a benzodiazepine specifically for anxiety. Benzos make you sleepy. If you are in a place where you can go to sleep; feel free. If not you can try a little caffeine or redbull or something. Do not do this if caffeine exacerbates your anxiety! Answered by Tomas Roznowski 2 years ago.

Tranxene is a type of benzodiazepine. its in the same family as Valium and Ativan. Its main use is an anti-anxiety agent. however Valium and Ativan is much better for this.

Tranxene like Xanax?
I was just prescribed Tranxene for anxiety. I asked the doc about Xanax and he wouldn't give it to me.

Tranxene is an old medication and many pharmacies don't stock it anymore. The truth is that the pharmacy you called probably does not have it and won't order it for you if your prescription is for a small quantity. They don't want to order a bottle of 100 tablet for a prescription for 30 tablets and get stuck with the rest. Try some other pharmacies. Answered by Dannielle Boham 2 years ago.

I took xanax long ago for panic attacks. When I ran out and was still facing depression issues I started drinking alcohol for the first time. I started drinking so much I would pass out nightly. later I went through rehab and the doctor told me that xanax has the same base properties of alcohol. It is like concentrated alcohol.

Yes, they can decrease your blood pressure and pulse rate. I actually know of a couple of people that have died as a result of an overdose.

So I have really bad anxiety attacks and I found out today that I have a heart valve that's not closing properly. I go for more tests next week, and my Dr started me on tranxene 3.75 mg. I've never taken anything like this before. I started getting an anxiety attack about 30 mins ago and took my first pill and I'm really drowsy. I still feel a little anxious but not as bad as I normally get. Any advice for this medication? Thanks. Answered by Errol Byone 2 years ago.

Tranxene (clorazepate) is a benzodiazepine class anxiolytic and anticonvulsant. Like all benzodiazepine Tranxene often cases some sedation, especially when treatment is first started. Typically the sedating effects of Tranxene will dissipate over a few days and should be more/less gone. However some people do experience more percipient sedation. 3.75 mg is a small dose, if you are finding it fairly sedating then you are probably just more sensitive to medications like these. You will likely need to be on a higher dose for better anxiety control but at least it is helping somewhat. Although the sedating effects tend to dissipate, the anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects do not. According to the official Tranxene product monograph "The usual adult daily dose is 30 mg. The dose should be adjusted gradually within the range of 15 to 60 mg in accordance with the response of the patient. After the patient has been stabilized on a suitable dosage, the frequency of dosing may be decreased in some patients to twice daily or once daily with the major portion of the dosage given at night, provided that the physician can ascertain that such a schedule will produce the desired anxiolytic effect without a period of drowsiness or impairment of mental functions." Tranxene is a safe medication and when taken alone it is nearly one if the hardest drugs to overdose on. The most common side effect is drowsiness, other side effects include dizziness, various gastrointestinal complaints, blurred vision, dry mouth, headache, and mental confusion. Tranxene is the the best benzodiazepine for controlling panic attacks but it is very effective in controlling generlized anxiety. The FDA has approved Tranxene "for the management of anxiety disorders or for the short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety." Tranxene is also indicated as adjunctive therapy in the management of partial seizures and for the symptomatic relief of acute alcohol withdrawal." Health Canada has approved the medication "for the short-term symptomatic relief of excessive anxiety and tension in psychoneurotic patients including those with functional somatic complaints." And "It is also useful in the adjunctive management of acute alcohol withdrawal." Tranxene is typically used short-term but it can be safely and effectively used long-term if needed. Tranxene can cause physical dependence (not the same as addiction). If used long-term it should NOT be abruptly discontinued. Rapid discontinuation can lead to withdrawal symptoms. Addiction is possible although it is extremely rare. Tranxene is one of three benzodiazepines (the others being oxazepam and chlordiazepoxide) proven to have a LOWER potential for addiction compared to the rest.
