Depends: If you mean what is it used for, it isused to calm anxiety and agitation or to treat alcohol withdrawal. If it is working correctly you should feel calmer inside and maybe less jittery.

Safety of benzo: Benzodiazepine, the group that encompass Valium [diazepam], serax [oxazepam], Ativan [lorazepam] are very safe but not made to be used for a long time as they only treat symptoms while the main problem is left untreated.

How long does oxazepam 30 mg stay in your system. I take 20 tablets a day and have a Urine test to complete.?
20 tablets?: That sounds like a huge dose. That means the patient should be working with 1 primary care doctor and 1 psychiatrist... with only 1 doctor prescribing any and all drugs with addiction or abuse potential. The drug probably stays around for several days when using normal doses, and likely longer for huge doses. Bad things happen if the drug is suddenly stopped. A urine test should be an honest one. ...Read more

I have been prescribed alprazolam & oxazepam for a long flight, what is a medical safe amount to take together. I need to sleep for my anxiety?
Similarities: Hi. Both of this benzo's have a similar half-life, although alprazolam hits faster.

Good luck and travel safely! ...Read more
