FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: LIBRAX

User Comments:


For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I have been taking generic Librax for about 9 years. It works up to a point, but is certainly not a cure for IBS. After eliminating nearly everything from my diet and taking Librax 4 times per day, I still have episodes where I cannot stop going to the bathroom. I have to turn to lamotil to stop the urge, even with the Librax. As someone mentioned, it has benzodiazepines in it which take some time to get used to, but after a couple of months you will only notice that your sense of balance is somewhat compromised. You should never stop taking Librax cold turkey. The withdrawal of the sedative is absolutely horrible. I tried to stop cold turkey once, and it was a terrible mistake. The drug is fairly effective at reducing the D.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “Sell your soul. This is the hands down best medicine for IBS; it is perfect, for the first few months. As soon as the tolerance to the Librium catches up to you then you get the bill, google librax withdrawal. Withdrawing from a benzodiazepine is pure hell, (I am in it) If you must do it go for two weeks to get relief and then stop.”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I’ve had IBS for many years along with anxiety as well as mitral valve prolapse syndrome. I’ve been given several different meds but good old Librax keeps me stable. I do not abuse it which my doc knows but I never run out of having it. I have found the generic does just as well for me. It’s an old medicine and many doctors do not choose to use it. I’ve taken as many as 5 a day and as few as 1. It calms me so much better than other meds such as Paxil or Lexapro. It has absolutely saved me!!”

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “I finally talked my doctor into ordering Librax. I had heard about it before but never tried it….I have IBS, plus a bunch of unknown-cause bowel issues…..and the worst which is constant nausea.Bentyl helped with cramps, not with nausea. Tried other meds that didn’t work. My doctor suggested Donnatal…..not covered by insurance, and for one month it was over $700!! So frustrating!Then he agreed to the Librax….I was SO happy, flew to the pharmacy to get it……..NOT covered either! I got half of the script for $75 to see if it worked, and it DOES! Actually took my nausea away and let me relax for the first time in days! Now have to try and get the money to get the refill when I need it. :(“

For Irritable Bowel Syndrome “Recently diagnosed with IBS (D) after months of pain and significant weight loss 30+ llbs. Hyoscamine didn’t help much, Librax does but the side effects for me are awful, after 2-3 days on it I develop severe headache which does not abate no matter what pain releif I use, if I continue to take it it then triggers days and days of cripplig migraines. So at the moment I take it on and off to keep the side effects down.”
