Librax cost at CVS

I was prescribed Librax by my Gastrointeroligist for stomach pain. When I went to CVS they told me my insurance United Health Care would not pay for it. They said the cost was $3,759.00 for 60 pills. Outrageous!! I am 85 years old and cannot afford this. ## That is outrageous indeed! Are you able to get a generic version of this drug filled? Brands tend to be much more expensive. 5mg/2.5mg Chlordiazepoxide / Clidinium (60 capsules) Check this tool from GoodRx to see if any pharmacies near you will honor the discount, it seems to be substantial: Hope this helps!

CHLORD/CLIDI CAP 5-2.5MG ## My doctor prescribed librax for a stomach problem, but my insurance company substituted 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 a 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. Now my drug prescriber has notified me that the 3 month supply is going from $71.11 to over $949.49 for 3 months. Needless to say I will no longe...

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...

Medicare and Librax

Medicare has not paid for Librax or it's generic since 2007. I wasn't old enough for Medicare but have to have it because I'm disabled. My doctor was shocked, as she said it had been around for years and was probably one of the $4.00 medications. I've been taking this since 1995 because I have severe IBS. I just looked it up and found that Librax is no longer on the market but the generics are still there. They are just as expensive. The only thing I found that they considered "dangerous" was that it might be habit forming; increased the risks of serious or life-threatening breathing problems, sedation or coma. If I've been taking it that long and haven't had a problem, that ridiculous. Luckily, I found the prescription to help with this. I can't find...

librax manufacturer

I got a prescription for Librax from my Dr. and took it to Costco and they wanted 400.00 for I think 60 pills. That is scamming people. I don't have drug coverage and am a senior and I found this drug back in 1957 and its the only thing that worked to stop my IBS and now I am told that Oceanside who use to make it has closed down and its like its on a Black Market. Virtus was another name on one of my prescriptions that made Librax. What are we suppose to do when this drug actually works? I can't afford 400.00, so, guess I will just use my Imodium or the prescription one Lomotil.

Librax bentyl

I recently was diagnosed with ibs. Bentyl helped tremendously but after a few pills thought i had reaction. Dr said try librax & if it doesnt work go back to bentyl. Took total of 3-4 librax. Havent taken librax since 10:00 Thurs night. Is it safe to take bentyl because librax isnt working & I dont want to be on it for ibs ## Yes, you should be able to make a clean switch, if your doctor has told you to do so. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, abdominal pain, flatulence, and diarrhea. What reaction did you you think you were having to the Bentyl? How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

Nexpro RD 40 with Librax

I am suffering from a duodenal ulcer and I have been taking Nexpro RD-40 with Librax for 2 months. It has not cured as well as before. How many days will it continue and what are the side effects? ## All medications carry the risk of causing side effects, regardless of why they are taken. Nexpro-RD contains the active ingredients Esomeprazole and Domperidone, it is used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach, which can allow it to heal, over time. Librax contains Chlordiazepoxide and Clidinium and is used to treat similar conditions. Both can cause side effects, so you may experience: nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and flatulence. As to how long you should use, it can take several months for some stomach conditions to heal and an ulcer is pretty bad and will usually take ...

Chlordiazepoxide-clidinium 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 ...

why won t medicare and united health paid for my prescription of chlord clidi 5 2 5m cap ocaa this the only medication that helps with stom

The medicine cost 200.00 dollars why doesn't someone let Medicare know this medicine is needed for a lot of seniors. Please help me. Can you send me the name of the manufacture of this pill. ## It isn't Medicare who won't pay for it, United Health which is your Medicare Prescription Part D Drug Plan is the one who won't pay for it. You need to appeal their decision to not pay for it. ## This is LIBRAX (chlordiaxepoxide HCL and clinidium bromide; the BDP is Librium, a mild tranquilizer and the other is an antispasmodic, anticholinergic.) these are cheap drugs. I remember about 10 years ago order 12 x 100 on a generic manufacturers brand for my Dad It was cheaper than his $5.00 copays!

what is difference between librax and bentyl

Which drug is better for IBS? I have both prescriptions and directions are the same...4 times daily. ## Hello, Kit! How are you? They are different medications that treat many of the same conditions. There really is no better medication, it depends on what works for you and your body. Have you tried either of them, yet? As reported by the FDA, you may experience side effects, such as nausea, bloating, gas, dizziness and headache.

stopping librax

What is the best way to stop taking Librax for a sleepy senior citizen and long-time Librax user? ## Hello, Tara! How are you? Has the patients doctor instructed them to stop taking it? After being on it for so many years, it is likely best to do a gradual taper, by slowly lowering the dose, while skipping doses. Their doctor should be able to help them set up a proper taper schedule. As listed by the FDA, a sudden stop could result in rebound effects, such as abdominal pain, cramping and constipation.

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? ## Hi. To anyone who is in need of Librax w/ cl...
