Librax Overview

Librax is a drug consisting of chlordiazepoxide and clidinium bromide and used to treat peptic ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and gastritis. It helps relieve stomach spasms, abdominal cramps, and anxiety related to gastric disorders.[1] Librax is a fixed ratio of these two medications and, as such, is not typically prescribed with an accompanying dosage, but rather how many capsules per day are to be taken. It comes as a capsule to be taken by mouth and is usually taken three or four...

Chlordiazepoxide-clidinium automatic substitute
Mr doctor wrote prescription for Librax and did not specify brand name only. My local pharmacy dispensed Chlordiazepoxide-Clidinium at a copay of $4.86 for 40 pills.. However, my Mail Order provider sent me Librax at a cost of $162.39 for 100 pills. When I questioned the mail order company, they advised Chlordiazepoxide-Clidinium had not been approved for automatic substitution for Librax and they could not give me the generic. They did advise that if the prescription had been for Chlordiazepoxide-Clidinium they would have dispensed that drug. Are they giving me the facts or run around? Thanks. ## Unless they are in a different country and not following the laws of the U.S. then they are incorrect. Any medication that has a generic available can be substituted with that generic, at the ...

CHLORD/CLIDI CAP 5-2.5MG ## my doctor prescribed librax for a stomach problem. my insurance co. substited chlord/clidi. what is the difference. is it generic ## Yes, this is just the generic, so it is named for the active ingredients, the name Librax is a proprietary brand name. ## BEWARE! - CHLORD/CLIDI CAP 5-2.5MG (LIBRAX) Will show positive for Benzodiazepine (Benzos) Took one of my wife's stomach pills a day or two before an pre-employment screen and the test returned a positive for Benzos. ## did you get the job? ## I have been prescribed this medication for many years; have tried going without and had disasterious results.

generic for librax
I recently went on to AvMed/Medicare in July 2013 and now my Librax and generic are not covered by Medicare. I was given Bentyl and took it for a few weeks and got very, very sick from it. It took about 3 weeks to finally get the Bentyl out of my system.I think this is outrageous that they do not cover for this medication. I started taking it in Nov. 2011 and had great results. I have battling this since I was 24 and now I am 65 and was so happy to finally start to feel good. When I worked they always deducted for Medicare and we have a deduction on our monthy SS checks so why can't we get what we need. In the long run people will be going to the doctor's more often and having test and will cost the insurance company more money. Looks like we have to be indegent or come off a bo...

chlord/clidi
green capsule 5-2.5MG ## This is a generic for Librax, which is most commonly prescribed to treat peptic ulcers and IBS. You can learn more Librax details here. It does have the potential to be habit forming, so it should only be used with a doctor's approval and supervision. Are there any questions or comments? Is there anything I can help with? ## I'm just going on Medicare and found out they do not pay for Librax or its generic. What alternative prescribed medicines are there now for IBS?

He told me to stop antifungaal after 5days but contunue librax and vizilac for a month today i stop antifungal but slight continous pain is still there can it be treated by librax after eating one month. Any side effect of librax and vizylac ## HI, Kotul! How are you feeling? Have things gotten any better? All medications and supplement products can take a few weeks to reach their full effect in the body and really help, that's likely why your doctor wanted you to continue the Librax and Vizylac for a longer period of time. Librax is used to help treat ulcers, IBS and gastritis, because it is helps relieve stomach spasms and abdominal cramps, so it should help if you give it some more time. Are yo...

Librax substitute
Is there something over the counter that works like Librax? I have GAD and have occasional morning bouts of irritabal bowel syndrome. I had a prescription for Librax and still have a few but I don't know if the doc will refill it. ## HI, Wendy! No, I'm afraid there isn't. There may be some natural herbal remedies that you could try, if you have a health food/vitamin shop nearby, they are usually pretty knowledgeable about such things and can make suggestions….of course you always need to make sure that your trying such things is okay with your doctor, before doing so. Otherwise, the best suggestion I can make is to discuss the issue with your doctor. They may refill it, it is fairly common for such issues to occur regularly and not really clear up on their own, so many...
