Librium

Uses For Librium 

Librium is a benzodiazepine that is used to control anxiety and alcohol withdrawal. Librium, also known as Chlordiazepoxide, was developed in the 1950s on accident. After creating the chemical, Doctors discovered the various hypnotic and muscle relaxant effects, and decided to release the drug as a therapeutic benzodiazepine medication. Librium was the first benzodiazepine to be released, followed by Valium. Both of which contain the same base chemical, Chlordiazepoxide.

We use Librium to prevent our patients, who are withdrawing from alcohol addiction, from having severe delirium tremors. Librium eases the pain and reduces the risk of seizures in detoxing patients. After a series of test throughout the 50s doctors came to the conclusion that Librium treated emotional disturbances and anxiety without the loss of mental alertness. Other studies have showed that because patients using this drug develop a tolerance gradually, it is unlikely that Librium is a long-term treatment for insomnia. When using this medication for detoxification and drug treatment centers, we aim to only use detoxing drugs short term anyways. We use Librium to prevent our patients, who are withdrawing from alcohol addiction, from having severe delirium tremors. Librium eases the pain and reduces the risk of seizures in detoxing patients.
