Librax Overview

Chlordiazepoxide/clidinium bromide (marketed as Librax) is a drug consisting of chlordiazepoxide (marketed separately under the trade name Librium) 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 directions on how ma...

Medicare and Librax
14 Replies RSS
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 bentyl
1 Reply RSS
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 Side Effects
12 Replies RSS
i am suffering duodenal ulser.and i take nexpro rd-40 with librax for 2 month. not cure well as well as before. how many days it will continue and any side effect? please tell me sir . ## 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 some time. I...

Chlordiazepoxide-clidinium substitute
8 Replies RSS
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 ...

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...
