How safe is bromazepam?

How safe is bromazepam?

Fairly: We're not seeing deaths from its being used normally. I know a couple of psychiatrists and they are not big on benzodiazepines especially in the short run. Don't exceed the recommended dose or use it with alcohol or other depressing drugs. Everybody can benefit from learning new living skills and mental tricks and maybe life-situation changes so you won't be a slave to anxiety. Good luck. ...Read more

How long lexilium or bromazepam stays in your system?

How long lexilium or bromazepam stays in your system?

It partially depends on your body mass.: The half-life of the medication is from 12 to 20 hours. This means by the end of the first day that you have stopped taking it probably half of the medication is out of your system. By the next day half of whatever left is I is gone from your system and so on. So it really depends on how much you are taking and how much fat stores you have to get rid of it entirely. I hope this gives you at least a ballpark figure ...Read more

Is it safe to take bromazepam 6mg occasionally before stressful situations?

If your doc agrees: If it is your doctor who chose the medication and the dosage then, things should be OK. 6 mg. Is kind of a middle of the road dose....should be OK....but driving or using hazardous machinery is a definite NO! NO! And combining with alcohol is more like, "Are you frickin' kidding me? ...Read more

I use +/- one half bromazepam 3 times daily. Can I use GABA before going to bed? Thank you

I use +/- one half bromazepam 3 times daily. Can I use GABA before going to bed? Thank you

Maybe not...: Gaba is not an fda-approved medication, so it is not known for sure what effects and side effects GABA has. Since some people say GABA has neuro-psychiatric effects, it is probably not a good idea to be on GABA and prescription medication for anxiety, such as benzodiazepines, at the same time. ...Read more

I take Lexilium (bromazepam) when I have anxiety. One pill 3mg maybe every third day for 4 months. Can I have withdrawal if I stop? How should I stop?

I take Lexilium (bromazepam) when I have anxiety. One pill 3mg maybe every third day for 4 months. Can I have withdrawal if I stop? How should I stop?

If you can, ask Dr.: If you can, contact the provider who made the Rx to get guidance on stopping. If not, that low a usage may be okay for you to cut back on your own. But don't just stop abruptly. Try once a week for awhile and watch for reactions - a common one is increased anxiety. Don't worry, just move slowly toward one/month, then off if you feel okay. This is an issue w/ Rx (s) best considered up front. Best! ...Read more

Can I take bromazepam while I am taking cephalexin?

Can I take bromazepam while I am taking cephalexin?

Antibiotics & meds: Bromazepam is a benzodiazepine similar to "Valium". It shouldn't have any major interaction with an antibiotic like cephalexin. I am more concerned, however, that you are even taking Bromazepam-- that's a very powerful medicine and I wonder if you really need it? In young women of child bearing age, you should be very careful with that. Hope your doctor knows all this! ...Read more

Is it safe to take bromazepam 3mg at night with 0.25 mg Xanax (alprazolam) and 10 mg escitalopram in the morning?

Is it safe to take bromazepam 3mg at night with 0.25 mg Xanax (alprazolam) and 10 mg escitalopram in the morning?

No: It is never recommended to take two benzodiazepines (any anti-Anxiety drug ending in - pam) as the can lead as their effect is amplified together. Which in this case means that side effects like sedation, dizziness would become unmanageable and dangerous all the way to respiratory depression (breathing slows down and may stop). Ask you psychiatrist about which one to stay on please. ...Read more

I have anxiety problem & been taking bromazepam 3mg for more than 2 years. Now I want to take diazepam 10mg. Is diazepam 10mg equals bromazepam 3mg?

Give it a try: Both medicines are used for anxiety and foster the same effective treatment for anxiety symptoms but valium has been known to have less potential harmful long term effects like drug tolerance and addiction. The dosages are comparable.

Also consulting a therapist to resolve anxiety triggers is something to think about. Together medicine and therapy show the best treatment results. Good luck. ...Read more

Talk with prescriber: Some people have adverse reactions to medications (e.g. insomnia from a 'sleeping' pill). As a next step, review the problem with the doctor who prescribed the medication promptly and see if (a) there's another choice that could help address the original problem without the side effect, or (b) the side effect might not persist if the med is taken another time. ...Read more

I wanted to know is bromazepam a sleeping pill?

I wanted to know is bromazepam a sleeping pill?

In a way: Anything that is sedating may be used as a sleeping pill. This medication is similar to other benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Klonopin, (clonazepam) Restoril). It primarily reduces the time to sleep onset by 4 -10 min. Prolongs the first two stages of sleep which does not result in prolonged total sleep time ~ 60 min longer.
Reduces deep sleep and REM sleep thus not improving restorative sleep. ...Read more
