Can i take Xanax (alprazolam) for alcohol withdrawal?

Not recommended: The best thing is to seek help for alcohol withdrawal, which can be dangerous. Check with your doctor and get her/his recommendations for withdrawal treatment. Xanax (alprazolam) doesn't last as long in the body as valium or librium, and there could be a risk of seizures if it wears off and the alcohol withdrawal breaks through. Don't try this at home! ...Read more

Not by himself: If he is using Librium i hope it is being prescribed by a health professional knowledgeable with addiction and withdrawals. If he is getting it some other way this is dangerous, being on Librium too long will create its own addiction to librium. Other non addictive medications may be part of the plan but again doing it on his own is not recommended. ...Read more

My dr placed me on librium for 10 days for alcohol withdrawal. How long do withdrawal symptoms last? Will i be ok after the 10 days i hope?

My dr placed me on librium for 10 days for alcohol withdrawal. How long do withdrawal symptoms last? Will i be ok after the 10 days i hope?

Yes: Alcohol withdrawal can often last up to 7 days after the last drink. So, after 10 days you should be ok. Note though that this is if you 100% abstain from any alcohol at all, even a sip. Also, taking alcohol and a benzodiazepene like Librium is extremely dangerous as it significantly raises your risk of seizure. Good luck on kicking the habit. ...Read more
