I have primary biliary cirhosis. Can I take Xanax (alprazolam) to help with alcohol withdrawal symptoms or will that damage my liver too?

I have primary biliary cirhosis. Can I take Xanax (alprazolam) to help with alcohol withdrawal symptoms or will that damage my liver too?

Biliary cirrhosis: Although it's a benzodiazepine and could be used, xanax (alprazolam) might not be the preferred medication to use in alcohol withdrawal. It really depends on what your physician determines is safest for you, considering your entire state of health. Alcohol would definitely be more injurious to your liver than xanax (alprazolam). Sometimes medications must be reduced in dosage, in accord w/reductions in liver function. ...Read more

Awful withdrawal symptoms from amitriptyline. Tapered from 75mg - 65mg. First 2 nights, fine. 3rd night - panic, nausea, faint. Can diazepam help?

Not first recourse: Diazepam (valium) hangs around the system a long time. Exchanging a need for Amitriptyline for a need for valium isn't a great bargain! Such a small dosage drop shouldn't cause withdrawal--unless you have a threshhold at 70 mg. What to do depends on why the med and why the taper. But I would have your doc help you do without a benzodiazepine like valium, except short-acting and short-term. ...Read more
