Oxazepam Vs Librium

I am prescribed librium for anxiety and alcohol related problem, librium is the only thing thats kept be sober for the last 2 years, thing i want to know is does anyone think Oxazepam is very much like librium? i know its used in alcohol withdrawal in hospitals, i don't want to move up to stronger benzos like temazepam and valium, so does anyone on here have experiences with thee 2 drugs?

Re: Oxazepam Vs Librium

oxazepam is slightly more potent and shorter acting benzo .not very strong,however,in past i took about 20-30 mg a day.half life is somewhere in the middle between long acting (diazepam,chlordiazepoxide) and short acting like alprazolam ,lorazepam etc

Re: Oxazepam Vs Librium

I'm just sick of worrying when i'm told my librium is going to be reduced again or paranoid to have a weekend drink in case i don't have the librium to get over it, i know its stupid but the doctors got me addicted in the first place and then they click and toyr script has stopped, i'm thinking of saving up on some oxazepam for a rainy day!!

Re: Oxazepam Vs Librium

If i may give an advice here, follow the doctor's decisions and taper down. Save some for the rainy days.
This being said and knowing that your problem is a serious one (you probably know yourself better than anyone and if you think this is the only thing keeping you from booze, it remains a better choice in many aspects to continue therapy with benzodiazepines), i'd say it might be time to seek another doctor or a reliable source for librium. On the other hand, benzos are a bitch to get off and you might be well-inspired to look through the forum for alternatives to start and try to get off drugs all together.

I personally place librium way above oxazepam in all aspects. I find it to have less of an addictive potential than most benzos, and less side effects. Paradoxically, i also find it to be way more efficient than oxazepam. Also, patients on Oxazepam (and generally patients on hort-acting benzos) tend to be subjected to severe mood swings, which is probably a result of shorter half-life and rebound effects.
I insist on the latter point as poeple who are usually gentle and absolutely non-violent can exhibit very worrying aggressivity and violence when in the rebound phase of short acting benzos.

Please note that temazepam and oxazepam are amongst the active metabolites of Librium/Chlordiazepoxide.
