Call EMTs via 911: I presume you mean that you took ten, 3mg tablets of lexotanil (bromazepam), a medication not available in the us.

Help! Need to know if there's an alternative for lexotanil?

Help! Need to know if there's an alternative for lexotanil?

Anti-anxiety agent: I presume this is for anxiety reasons. I think the idea of reflexively taking drugs for minor anxiety can cause more problems than it solves. Lexotanil is a benzodiazipine that, if taken chronically, can lead to dependence. As for an alternative, Atarax (hydroxyzine) is as effective and has fewer problems. Consider increasing your exercise. Make yourself do a brisk walk or bicycle. Get outside! ...Read more

Bad. You are young.: Long term use of any drug to be avoided. These two are potent. Bromazepine, Lexotanil is addictive, you become tolerant and withdrawal is a big problem.
Seroxat, Paroxetine may affect libido, cause anorgasmia, is to be avoided in pregnancy, increased risks of thoughts about suicide.
Come off them, BUT SLOWLY UNDER MEDICAL SUPERVISION. ...Read more

I take Lexotanil 4 Sleep, I was erected during sex then I sleep when it wasn't fully erected, I wake up and it"s erected, can this 5 hours cause damge?

No, don't worry: Waking erections are very, very common and they don't cause any harm at all. Your sexual functioning as you describe it is fine. Your anxiety is showing however.

It can increase drowsiness, incoordination, and falling down. It will not cure injuries from a fall. If you've been injured, please seek medical attention. ...Read more

I am taking seroxat&lexotanil from 5 years&they vanised my headache&balance issues. I have heard that these medicines shouldn't be taken lifetime. Why?

Long term use OK: Seroxat is also know as paroxetine, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that increases serotonin, a neurotransmitter.

I'm on tapering plan from Lexotanil 1.5 since I used for 20 Days, 1 Pill/day. If I feel Withdrawal Symptoms will it last forever or it will take days?

Not necessarily: Taper off of it with your doc's supervision. If you have side effects that are uncomfortable for you, tell your doc and the rate of taper can be slowed so you don't have any symptoms that are unpleasant. Since you were not on it long, severe symptoms are unlikely and any symptoms will likely not last long. However, you are being treated for a mood problems, and you might not feel great from that ...Read more

I'ws stressed & used Lexotanil 1.5 from 20 days [Half up to 2 Pils], I tried to taper but I felt depress, Is this feeling Permanent, No Psycatery here?

It's not related: I am assuming that this is an antidepressant. I could not find an equivalent medication in US' Epocrates. If you took the medication for only 20 days, it's not enough time to work to clear the symptoms. The feeling is not a direct result of stopping the medication. It's the depression that you were trying to medicate. So is not permanent but you need to get treatment for depression. ...Read more

I've been on Lexotanil 1.5 One Per day (Some Days Half & Two Days One and Half) from 15 days, I'm depressed and need tapering plan. No Psycatery here?

See answer: Lexotanil contains the benzodiazepine Bromazepam. It comes in 1.5 and 3 mg tablets. The usual dose is from 3-18 mg daily. I interpret your statement to indicate your depression may be due to this medication. Not everyone stopping such a low dose will have withdrawal. Example tapering: 1 tablet one day alternating with 0.5 tablet next 1-0.5-1-0.5-0.5-0.5-0.25-0.25 stop. You should consult your Dr. ...Read more

I'm on Lustral 50 and Lexotanil 1.5 for Depression from 12 Days, What food or herbs to boost mood to help me and that doesn't interact with Medicine?

I'm on Lustral 50 and Lexotanil 1.5 for Depression from 12 Days, What food or herbs to boost mood to help me and that doesn't interact with Medicine?

Food as medicine: Great question! Food IS medicine. I recommend eating a balanced diet that is rich in phytonutrients (green leafy vegetables and other brightly colored vegetables). Green tea in the morning will help provide a calm energy. Eating complex carbohydrates such as a sweet potato in the evening can help boost serotonin levels, which can potentially help one sleep better at night. ...Read more

Advise Dr. 1st!: You can stop, but you always should advise the Dr before to get directions for tapering and guidance for how to handle any w/drawal problems that could arise. If there is no worry, they'll tell you that too. They are responsible to you and can't do their job w/out info like this. Best! ...Read more
