Tranxene (clorazepate) withdrawal?

Can Be Serious. It depends on the length of time the person took tranxene (clorazepate) and the daily dose. If a person takes tranxene (clorazepate) everyday for at least month, he or she may have mild to moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms, again depending on the daily dose. The symptoms would be anxiety, irritability, tremors, insomnia and even withdrawal seizures. It is important to discuss slowly tapering off with your doctor.
Yes, but not as bad. Tranxene (clorazepate) is a very long-acting benzodiazepine. The general rule is: the longer acting, the less withdrawal (like methodone withdrawal is somewhat better than heroin). At the same time, withdrawals are characteristic to any benzodiazepine, and will happen to anyone addicted to it.

Untrue. diazepam has a VERY long duration of action, and is actually longer than librium, but not longer than clorazepate. It would be perfectly appropriate to taper on the diazepam itself, going down by 2.5 mg per week would be a reasonable place to start, although if any withdrawal symptoms/signs occur down the line, would slow it to 1.25 mg a week. Supplementing anticonvulsants may help. Talk to MD. Read more...
