librium and methadone

I was prescribed librium about 6 weeks ago. It caused me to get kicked off my methadone clinic and as of yesterday it still turns up on a U/A so no other clinic will accept me. How long does it remain in my system? ## Hello, Samantha! How are you? I'm very sorry about what happened. Some metabolites of Librium can linger for anywhere from 7.5 to 50 days. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, drowsiness, constipation and blurred vision. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've been on methadone for fifteen years and never failed a drug panel but I know people who have and it was xanax. They never got kicked out of the clinic, they just have to keep coming to the clinic to dose every day and no takeouts. Now if you don't have a script you ...

I would like to know is it dangerous to take say 10 mg or 20 mg during alcohol detox. I am 8 days into detox and still have shakes and have problems sleeping which makes me feel terrible all day, my mind just goes around and around and cannot drift off.I only took one tablet 10 mg after tapering off the booze but afraid to take as don't want another addiction. any advice appreciated, thank you. ## Went to hospital for alcohol detox . They put me on atavan then moved me to 25 MG librium . Would it be OK to take a 2mg zanax one time with librium just so I can go to sleep from all the other cap they had me on while I was in hospital my tolerance is high been on methadone for fifteen years and Dr knew this.

Librium placebos

I was prescribed Librium for alcohol withdrawal but the pills do not work. There is only a simple "25" on the pill. Are they placebos? ## Librium isn't a very powerful benzo, albeit the first one ever created. Based on the fact that they do come in 25mg capsules they are probably real. If you're going through alcohol withdrawal it's not going to be pleasant.. even WITH Librium. It's probably still working in the background of your mind and nervous system, preventing convulsions and helping tremors, although you may not realize it. Call your doctor and ask if you can get Ativan instead. It's stronger. I'm a recovering alcoholic and have been through detox several times. In most inpatient settings they do give you Librium but there are better options (Ativa...

Libium

Hi, I've been on libium for 30 years and can't get off them. They are not helping me any more. Anxiety levels are high ... now worried more. My doctor says it's not the cause but I do not believe him. ## I don't think long term benzodiazapeines are a bad thing. I went from valium to xanax 1.0mg 4x a day... Sometimes I run out too early; but never had to detox from them or up my dose every year. I started with a lot; PRN. I tried my mum-in-laws librium one day I forgot my pills. After taking 6 at once - I gave up! They felt less than a chewy vitamin. When I have observed in ppl on long term benzos is that the ppl that feel addicted take it on a tight schedule. No matter how little you take. I met an ambulance bigwig who was addicted to a half a yellow valium (2.5mg)! Cos ...

can u take librium with hydrocodone

ive been on Librium for two days now 3- 10mg Librium 1st day and ten 2 second day and only two on the tird day. I have been in back to back accidents and was given 2 hydrocodones can I take them together? and the Librium isn't doing the job in three days..been drinking for 5 years daily... ## Hello, Jean! How are you? Both of these medications can increase sedation, so they can be taken together, if your doctor has okayed it, but you should know to watch for any danger signs, such as extreme dizziness and drowsiness, or trouble breathing. Norco is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. What are you taking the Librium for? ## Can I take Librium and Vicodin togethe...

Librium vs Xanax

I just got some Librium they have Barr 159 on them. I was just curious as to if anyone knows what the equvilant of one of these Librium pills would be to the mg of a Xanax. Thanks!! ## Hello, Even though Librium and Xanax are used to treat the same ailments and are in the same drug class, they are still two different medications that are formulated in two different ways. Since these medications effect everyone differently, there is really no way to justify an equivalent dose of Librium to create the same result as taking Xanax. An equivalent dose for one person could also be an overdose for someone else. Hopefully that makes sense. ## I agree with Jenna on the Librium vs. Xanax question. Librium is in my opinion much stronger than xanax for me even at the high dose of xanax vs. Low dose...

Identify black and teal capsule ll 10 10 ll

Hi, I work in home renovation, and come across many errant pills. Normally it takes minutes to find out what they are. The capsule is marked with the Lederle LL or symbol (cannot tell which, almost looks like a £€ but together) followed by 10 on each half of the capsule, mirrored except the numbers don't switch. The capsule itself is fairly large, about the size of a 500 mg antibiotic, black and teal, and contains a powder that is white with a yellowish tint. It looks just like some 10mg Librium, but much larger. I know they have products like that in india, but I can find no record of this pill being sold from ESI Lederle. It is really bothering me, so if you can help identify this preferably with pictures or citations, I would be very thankful.

librium and methadone for opioid withdrawals

Trying to avoid horrible opioid WD... I wanted to know if taking Librium for 3 days will help and if taking 20mg of methadone at the same time as Librium for only 3 days will give me WD from methadone? ## Be VERY careful when mixing Benzos (Librium) with methadone. My clinic specifically asked me if I was prescribed anyou Benzos before they would start me on methadone due to the severe drug interaction between the two. The combination of both depress your respiratory system and your central nervous system. There's been several documented deaths where people took both sometime during the day, went to bed, and never woke up again. I would definitely advise against using both at the same time unless you're under 24 hour medical surveillance, i.e., in a hospital setting.
