I have been given three shots of steroids for allergies and I am taking 5 mg of prednisolone a day. I have a serious stomach ache can I take a librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide)?

68 yr-old man, new-onset loss of left toes dorsiflexion, 51 years after Harvey Cushing's Osteoplastic Craniotomy for temporal lobe epilepsy.....?

See ur NeuroSurgeon: New-onset loss of L foot dorsiflexion after craniotomy may be a complication of surgery, perhaps related to positioning. EMG/NCV (muscle & nerve testing) can localize site of nerve injury. Physical therapist can offer exercises to improve function as well as recommend ankle-foot orthotic to minimize risk of falling/tripping due to foot drop.

Experiences with librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide)?

Experiences with librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide)?

An irrational drug: If this drug were to seek approval today, it would be refused. Combinations of antispasmodic drugs with tranquilizers and sedatives (including barbiturates) were very popular in the 60s and 70s. They are used mostly to treat irritable bowel syndrome. The best treatment starts with more fiber in diet, and then antispasmodic drugs. Tranquillizers are rarely indicated, and can cause dependency. ...Read more

Anyone have bad experiences with librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide)?

What kind of bad?: Librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide) is a very old (and in my opinion obsolete and irrational) drug, containing a tranquilizer (since the thought is people with irritable bowel symptoms are all anxious) and an antispasmodic. Both can cause significant side effects, including constipation, urinary retention, excessive sedation, slow heart rate, dizziness and lightheadedness. There are better treatments for IBS. ...Read more

Two drs gave me these medicines can I take them together? Depokene200, citalopram, chlordiazepoxide, propranol and minasage.

No problem: They may be taken together. One concern I have is, why citalopram? It has no antianxiety properties. Propranolol can be fine. Librium is fine, Depakote has no role in the treatment of anxiety except on a rare occasion. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Docs, could a person die of chlordiazepoxide overdose?

Possible, unlikely: Benzodiazepines have very little lethal potential, particularly in healthy people. Large doses will cause people to sleep for prolonged periods of time, but do not depress respiration or gag reflex. In elderly or debilitated people, in those with severe lung or liver disease, and when combined with other CNS depressants (like alcohol, opiates) they can and do cause respiratory depression/death. ...Read more
