Such dates don't: Really mean anything. The vast majority of drugs, just like the vast majority of foods, last much longer than the usually totally arbitrary dates placed on the bottles or boxes of meds. Particularly if they are kept near room temperature and in a dry place. However, if you have IBS and it is getting worse, you need to see your doctor asap to see what has changed.

Why is my stomach hurting like contraction in middle of my stomach and on the sides I get sharp pains! My dr said intestenal spasms? Librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide) did not work

Spasms: First off, tell your doctor the Librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide) failed. Communication is very important in medicine. Next, there are a lot of unknowns. Blood in stool? Black stools? Consistency of stools. The number of stools a day? Testing done to confirm spastic colon. Most likely irritable bowell syndrome mixed. Meaning have loose stools to constipation. However, check back with your doc and get reevaluated. ...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

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
