It's not!: The longer named one also contains a benzodiazepine also known as Librium which is a Valium type of med. Make sure you ask you doc about serious and common side effects. Take care

Sometimes the librium affects driving, memory and performance too and don't drink with it either. Dr. Barrios is right, talk to your doc for information about it.
