My daughter has been on pres. Drugs for yrs. She was detoxed in a hospital. Now the rehab she is in giving giving her 80 mg librium. Is this ok to do?
HIGH DOSE: This is a very high dose of librium. Is this to detox off of something else and how long will she be in the rehab facility? She definitely cannot be discharged with this medication and not at this dosage. So the Librium can be used to detox off of alcohol, barbiturates, or another benzodiazepine. ...Read more

They are similar: Librium and Xanax (alprazolam) are both 'benzodiazepines' which are used to treat anxiety. Librium has a longer time to peak than Xanax (alprazolam), meaning Xanax (alprazolam) works quicker. Librium has a longer half-life which means it hangs around in your system longer. Most of the time Librium is used for alcohol or benzo withdrawal. Xanax (alprazolam) is usually used for acute anxiety. Both are addictive. ...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

I was withdrawn from Xanax (alprazolam) and put on Librium. Should I follow the Dr. Heather Ashton regimen. I'm on 10mg of Librium, I'm worried I'll get addicted?
Both benzodiazepines: Both Xanax (alprazolam) and Librium (chlordiazepoxide) are in the same drug class of benzodiazepine. Xanax is more addictive, due to its short half-life. Librium is a longer-acting drug, less likely to induce craving as its blood levels drops much more slowly until your next dose. If you are on 10 mg/day this is within recommended dosage. Less likely to get addicted to this. Ask your doctor! ...Read more
A little different: It depends on the effect you're looking for. Librium and valium are both fairly long-acting benzodiazepines, but valium may be a little more potent as an anxiolytic. Valium may also be more lipid soluble, getting into the brain more quickly than librium. Librium's effect may be delayed also because the parent compound is less potent than its metabolites. ...Read more
