Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I've detoxed with librium (now) 5 times. Currently into my 3rd day with librium. The first couple times I detoxed with the stuff it was amazing. Just three 25MG pills a day to ward off withdrawals from 3 pints of vodka a day 3 month long benders. But I will warn you of this.....you build a tolerance to librium. This time I needed more 25MG pills in just the first 24 hrs. Then 4 on day two and now I'm down to 3 (will wean off over the next few days). Stuff is still amazing but don't be an idiot like me and bounce between booze (to the point of almost death) and then benzo's; just to drink booze again."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I've been drinking for about three years now! To try and take away the depression and anxiety. (I do realise drink is the worst thing to madicate with) As I write this, I had just woke up on my back, vomiting. Four day drinking session. Not a morsel of food past my lips. 25/30 cans of Guinness per day. I've lost the ability to walk properly. For several years now, when I stand up, my legs just buckle. I take diazepam too. They are of no help anymore! I was taken into hospital two months ago. Family had rang an ambulance. I had alcohol poisoning, and taken a seizure. Librium really helped with the withdrawals in hospital. I wish any of you suffering all the very best! Alcohol dependancy is such a lonely road to walk."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I was drinking for 4 years and tried numerous rehab centers, all of which did not believe in providing drugs, just vitamins.... I tried to stop on my own the other day and sat in the living room shaking and shivering. I finally went to my Dr. Yesterday and he prescribed Librium to help with the shakes and anxiety. Day 2 and feeling much better... the drug works for the shakes and pain of withdrawal... I know I have a long road ahead to actually clean up my act, but the drug is a great start to dealing with the discomfort. I tried to write on my computer yesterday but the shakes would not allow me to make any sense, today, I can write with fairly good ability. The Librium definitely helps. Good Luck everyone in recovery, it can be a struggle"

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I've always done cold turkey withdrawal and this is the first time I could function. It made me feel numb and zombie like but I'd rather have that than the cold turkey withdrawal. I'm a 39 year old female who's been drinking since 15. I'm a horrible binge drinker that can go weeks with only vodka or other kinds of booze, I wake up in the morning and drink until I pass out, soon as I wake up I do it all over again. The only way I stop is my husband takes my wallet, keys, and any access to $. My withdrawals kick in quick and I feel as if I'm dying. I don't sleep for 3 to 4 days, I hear stuff that's not there, I sweat profusely and than I'm freezing, horrible anxiety my heart jumps at any noise, my heart races, and I get super depressed"

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "Since having a seizure back in December 2015 I had been put on Librium. When I tapered off of it I started relapsing with Alcohol over and over, many hospital trips. The drug did always help me take the edge off, but when I felt the need to not be on it anymore except occasionally at night when I couldn't sleep which I've always had sleeping issues. But the drug did save me after the seizure from withdrawals I was drinking and binging so much at that time of life, beer, shots, all day and night, no eating at all. I ended up staying alcohol free till like April and relapsed and it's been downhill since then I've now accepted to greater myself, and grow more will power to not drink again Librium has helped me through these past few years."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I have been a heavy liquor drinker for at least ten years now. Done some horrible things not only to my own self and body, but also my family. Went to rehab for a month, and soon as I came out drank again. In may of last year I found out I now have pancreatitis, due to the heavy alcohol consumption. I got out of the hospital after spending a good week an a half, and lasted for almost two months. The pain with pancreatitis is worse than having a child naturally! I know because I have! The doctors told me if I start drinking again I Will Die!!! So another attack came on and was to embarrassed to go back to the ER, I went to my own doctor and told him everything he prescribed with librium and it's been my true life saver!!!!"

For Alcohol Withdrawal: "Binge drinking had become a serious problem. I would go for days without drinking or even the desire to have one. Then would meet up with drinking buddies one day and that was it. I went to a psychiatrist who prescribed Disulfaram in the morning and this drug in the evening. changed my life, been sober for 8 months now."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Anxiety: "I'd suffered from ongoing anxiety and found my usual antidepressants were not working anymore. Also I was going through a very stressful period, and not sleeping or eating well. My GP prescribed librium for a short period of time. I found it really effective. My sleep and appetite returned and I was coping much better with anxiety. It's been two weeks now and I am going to ask if I can continue taking it for a bit longer. I have had no noticeable side effects."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "Was a 2.5/3 pint a day vodka drinker for 3 yrs. I'd medicate on it. 2 or 3 shots every couple hours around the clock. I started needing the vodka to stay asleep at night. I'd wake up with the pounding heart and shakes. And my guts were sour (constant diarrhea). I couldn't go more than 3 hrs without it or I'd go into full blown paranoia and anxiety attacks. I'm afraid of drugs. I hate pharmaceuticals. And I was DONE drinking so I tried to wean myself over and over again and failed hard. Finally broke down and went to detox. Librium was their go to. The stuff is amazing. Made detox a breeze to be honest. I wasn't even tired on it. I felt normal to be honest. No shakes, no paranoia, slept good (vivid dreams). 25mg 3 times day for 10 days."

For Alcohol Withdrawal: "I've been drinking heavily for 11 years now. Lost many jobs because of my addiction. I've been a bartender for over 7 years. I've never once said I need help and could do it on my own. I know now I can't and need help. I've drank every single day for the past month over a 5th or more than 10 drinks (if at a bar/restaurant.) I definitely needed this medication. It's my second day and the shakes have worn off. The first day was difficult. I will say it definitely help take the shakes away, cravings and anxiety.I have a long road ahead of me, but I have faith, feel better and am optimistic about a sober future! These pills are saving my life! Highly recommend. Good luck to you all that have read this and are struggling with alcoholism!"

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I was drinking the 720 ml every 24 hrs., of Captain Morgan rum, that's the largest bottle they sell. I was spending over $750 a month. I was given LIBRIUM take 3 times a day. The first day I still went through the some light withdrawals mainly the shakes. Usually the withdraws where shakes, bad difficulty breathing, throwing up, light headed, feet and hands going number, blood pressure sky rocketing, and super bad head aches. That first day was just shakes, I had already even lost the impulse to go and buy some. Day 2 I only took 2. Day 3 I only had to take 1. I took 1 every 24 hrs the next 4 days and no longer needed them. It was very effective for me. Anyone who wants to quit that's a good way to go. Be responsible though."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I was administered this drug at the beginning of a 28 day residential detox/rehab for alcohol. It stopped the tremors and shakes. But not the other withdrawal symptoms such as the sweats which did subside. However, it took slightly longer to bring back the co-ordination in my legs. I was advised that this had something to do with the receptors in my brain repairing. Until it was brought to my attention I didn't know how much alcohol affected the brain and it's normal function with the rest of the human body."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "Tested positive this week for Benzo's at a aftercare treatment center. Could not figure it out from my normal prescribed medications I take daily, all non-benzo's until I looked it up on this site. Over three weeks ago I was given Libruium at a detox center. So this must be why I showed up as positive for Benzo's in a urine test weeks after detox is completed. I am glad I found this site and now know the cause."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "Been drinking on and off for years. Going through a binge yet again. Day 5 now of drinking the wine, day and night. Hiding it and any excuse to go out to so I can buy more. I have took Librium twice before and it did help. So please wish me luck as I'm back to the Drs today to try again for the final time, no more thinking 2 wines and I will be fine, as that's when it escalates. Good luck everyone in your recovery. X"

For Alcohol Withdrawal: "My GP saved my life by (a) getting me to admit to alcohol problems ( three bottles of wine daily seven days a week ) (b) sending me for a biopsy for potential cirrhosis ( clear ) but being in the hospital ward for two days showed me the effects of alcohol abuse and realising I wanted my life back. This was the first two days in over twenty years of not drinking alcohol. (c) the real life saver Chlordiazepoxide prescribed to me. Now alcohol free over three years, got my life back, no more dry vomits each day all day, no more obvious signs externally; the sweating or panics. Do not ignore the medical offer of this drug if prescribed to you it could save YOUR life as it has mine. Aged 53 - male."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I'm 27 years old drinking up to 4 bottles of wine a day and have been doing so for at least 8 years EVERY DAY as before I was smoking weed since I was 14 years old. I lost two jobs to alcohol - one at Apple head quarters and one at another company which were fantastic names to be on my C.V. Thankfully I am now back on Libruim and am happy to be able to write down my signature and write a straight and readable line without shaking to get it down on paper. I have liver disease and alcohol related seizures and have lied to close and loved ones, constantly denying and even stealing from their alcohol cabinets out of greed and being scared of getting withdrawals... As we all know - they are UN-BEAR-ABLE. Thank God for Libruim."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I have been a heavy drinker for many year, substituting Vodka for lunch and dinner. After I found I could barely write due to shakiness, I went to my doctor. He prescribed Naltrexone, Camprial, and Librium. It has worked wonders! So far, no urge to drink, no side effects, and sleeping better than I have in years. (I must admit that I am somewhat tired, but so what!) The fog is slowly beginning to lift and I am feeling joy once again. If I can do it, anyone can! This is a life saver."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I've been a binge drinker on and off for about 4 years. This last binge lasted about 5 days around the clock. Going through withdrawal begins almost immediately for me if I don't drink every hour or so. I get extreme anxiety, heart racing, minor shakes and can't just settle down. My doctor gave me a Librium taper starting on 50mg every 6 hours day one and going down from there. I My experience with the first dose is that it did not do anything for me. I was still just as miserable. Once I took the second dose I was able to fall asleep. Today I'm pretty anxious but it does that the edge of. It's not a magic bullet that cures all withdrawal symptoms. Good luck!"

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Anxiety: "I have Panic Attack Disorder and anxiety.I use Librium on and off as needed. It works wonderfully. Makes me calm in about 20 minutes and I feel I can control the rest of the day. I take 5mg as needed. When I take it as needed it doesn't have side effect."

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Alcohol Withdrawal: "I am 22 and have been a very heavy drinker since age 15. I have not went more than about three days at a time without drinking. Never a couple, every time to the point of being drunk. The past few weeks I went on a bender with very little sleep and drinking every day. Two days ago I went into a seizure at work. I was sent to the ER where the doctor told me my alcohol levels were so high he didn't know how someone my age could tolerate that amount of consumption. He gave me a script for Librium and sent me home . I had one more seizure waiting for the pills. Since then they have kept my symptoms so manageable that I can function. Thank god for this medication. I feel I would die without it"

Librium (chlordiazepoxide) for Anxiety: "Experienced a major, full-blown panic attack (due to stress and agoraphobia) while out with a friend. She offered Librium, two 5mg capsules. The hysteria subsided fairly quickly, but I could not stop crying, & could not breathe. Two more Librium stabilised me completely. When I told my doctor, she "told" me rather than asking me that I slept for the remainder of that day. Nooooo....I've been telling her for MONTHS that it takes high doses of 4 different meds for me to sleep. One of those is Klonopin. For 10 years I was prescribed 6mg at bedtime. New doc came in, cut me down to 4mg, upsetting my balance, making falling asleep a chore. I hope she will take into account the Librium'so positive effect."
