Librium (chlordiazepoxide) is a sedative used to treat insomnia and a variety of anxiety-related conditions, including anxiety resulting from alcohol or drug withdrawal. The medication is sometimes used in numerous other applications, but these uses are relatively rare.
This medication can be used in all ages. Children should have dosage determined by a doctor.
What Librium Is
Librium is in the benzodiazepine class of drugs. While it has several properties, Librium is most often used as a sedative. It's commonly used to treat:
Librium acts on the central nervous system (CNS) to produce a calming effect. It is dose-dependent to a large extent, meaning the higher the dose the greater the effect. It is also among the longer-lasting benzodiazepines available.
All benzodiazepines are psychoactive, and in some countries---notably the US and the UK---they are considered a controlled substance.
Some benzodiazepines are more addictive than others, and Librium is not among the most widely abused, but it is considered addictive. Patients may need to take more of the medication to acheive the same feeling, or doses may be used to enhance the effects of other drugs. Patients prone to addiction will want to use this medication with caution.
In most cases treatment spans no longer than 2 to 4 consecutive weeks. In some cases treatment may last up to 4 months. Longer use is not recommended.
Dosage & Administration
Librium is used to manage moderate to severe anxiety; not the routine anxiety from daily life that everyone experiences.
The medication comes in tablets or capsules, which should be swallowed whole. Food is optional.
Ideally dosage will be determined by a doctor, who can take into account personal variables like age, weight, other medications being taken, and so forth. Dosage also depends on what is being treated.
For general anxiety:
For short-term anxiety spikes (such as death of a loved one):
For anxiety prior to surgery:
For drug or alcohol withdrawal:
The medication sees the highest doses and longest use in treating drug or alcohol withdrawal. Initial high doses are often administered intravenously rather than via tablet.
If using Librium to stop drug or alcohol addiction, it's important that the patient wants to quit. If drugs or alcohol are consumed while taking Librium effects will be significantly enhanced, which can prove fatal.
In all cases treatment should not exceed 4 months.
If treatment has spanned more than a couple of weeks---particularly at higher doses---it should not end abruptly. A doctor can advise how to gradually reduce treatment over a few weeks.
Stopping treatment suddenly can produce serious side effects, including seizures, tremors, hallucinations, and odd behavior. Gradually reducing treatment also helps reduce addiction.
