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.
