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...

generic librax at Costco
Try Costco mail order for generic Librax. Best price we have ever found. ## Hi Ed, Thanks for the heads-up on how to save money at Costco. If anyone else is looking for assistance in cutting costs with their prescription(s), Medschat also offers a free drug savings card that can save you anywhere from 15 to 75% off your next prescription. You can view more details here: medschat.com/rx_discount_card.asp All you have to do is print it out and bring it with you at the time you fill your script and see what kind of discount you're eligible for. Some drug manufacturers even offer patient assistance programs for those who meet certain income qualifications. This may be something to speak with your doctor or pharmacist about at your next visit if all else fails. I hope this helps!

Patient Assistance Program .
I contacted Valeant Assistance Drug Program and I was faxed the proper papers to complete and have my Gastro. Doc. fill out and submit a script along with my SS earnings for 2013. This was done on 7/7/14. If would be approved the drug would cost me nothing!! Well this afternoon (7/22/14) I received a call from them and they did not approve me for the drug because I have AVMED/Medicare even though my insurance will not fill the script. This really sucks. What does a person have to do to get the proper medicine for IBS. Bentyl doesn't work, I got very sick from it. I am clueless and very upset about this. ## Hello, Janice! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. Has your insurance given any specific reason why they won't cover it? That might be somet...

Generic Librax
Recently found out that Generic Librax is available at Sam's Club and the price for 60 pills, was approx $93.00. Cheapest place I have found. ## not bad... But somewhere there's better :) ## Prices are always subject to change and could certainly be more or less somewhere else on the planet. At least you found an affordable rate to continue getting your meds. Places like Sam's Club and Costco are great for that if you're already a member. Some of the other prices I've seen people pay for the same thing are quite astronomical compared to what you payed. $109, $139.00, and even as much as $364.30 are some of the numbers that come up for 60 tablets of the brand name. Were you using insurance or a drug savings card as well?

librax and menses
have been taking librax for a week twice a day and my periods are 7 days late . is it librax or is there a chance i am preggers ## Hello, Mashall! How are you? Yes, it can cause some menstrual irregularities, but if there is also a chance that you might be pregnant, it would be a good idea to look into the possibility, as well. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, chills and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

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 ...
