What is Librium?

Librium is a psychoactive drug prescribed by physicians to treat the symptoms of various anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder.

It is the brand name of the pharmaceutical drug chlordiazepoxide, a benzodiazepine that is used to treat anxiety disorders.

Librium can also be prescribed to treat insomnia and alcohol use disorder as it can reduce cravings and abate withdrawal symptoms.

In addition to treating anxiety, Librium also has properties of amnesic, anticonvulsant, hypnotic, sedative, and skeletal muscle relaxant.

Like any substance, Librium has the potential for abuse.

Increased tolerance to the drug and dependency or addiction may develop as a result of use.

Despite its medical use to treat anxiety and other disorders,

Librium can be habit forming.

Often, people begin to self-administer higher dosages because the initial effects of the drug subside after extended use.

This can lead to a variety of negative consequences, including exacerbating the symptoms of mental health conditions.

Understanding Librium

Librium was first introduced in 1960.

At the time, it was scrutinized for its lack of restrictive medical procedures regarding its use.

Despite the initial public disapproval of Librium, the drug continues to be used in clinical practice by many healthcare professionals.

The half-life of Librium is moderate to long, lasting from five to thirty hours in duration.

Users typically begin to experience relief from anxiety as well as the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal when taking Librium.

The reduction of inhibition results in the user being able to function more clearly without the chronic angst of anxiety.

Effects of Librium Abuse and Dependency

Like any drug, Librium has the potential to be abused, which often leads to increased tolerance and turns into dependency. Many people who use Librium increase their prescribed dosage because they feel that it is not producing the same effects as when they first began using it. This form of self-dosing is harmful to the individual in many ways.
The sedative effects of Librium may lead people to consume more than the recommended daily dosage. These qualities can make Librium seem addicting or more appealing to some people. Unfortunately, prescription abuse has become a national issue in the United States. Despite requiring a medical prescription from a physician, some people obtain Librium through illicit means to perpetuate their dependency.
The further an individual relies on the recreational effects of Librium abuse, the more likely it is that he or she will begin to experience the adverse symptoms of Librium abuse and dependency. The desired effects are no longer enjoyable for the individual; instead, they may experience many symptoms of mental health conditions, including major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, and other mood disorders.
If the individual abusing Librium has a preexisting mental health condition, dependency will almost always exacerbate the symptoms to the point where it can become unmanageable.

Signs of Librium Addiction:

  • Additional use of Librium against the physician’s prescribed dosage
  • Seeking Librium prescriptions from different physicians
  • Lying about the dosage and frequency of use of Librium
  • Obtaining Librium through illegal means
  • Spending an excessive amount of time obtaining and consuming Librium
  • Neglecting responsibilities at work, school, and home
  • Unable to quit using Librium despite the desire to do so
  • Financial problems due to purchasing Librium
  • A high tolerance to Librium
  • Withdrawal symptoms, which include insomnia, restlessness, irritability, sweating, tremors, and increased heart rate

Mental Health Conditions and Librium Addiction

Approximately 50% of people with mental health conditions abuse drugs in an effort to cope with the emotional distress caused by symptoms of conditions, including people with major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and psychotic disorders.
This self-dosing in an attempt to alleviate the symptoms of mental health conditions causes more severe consequences. Abusing Librium may temporarily alleviate anxiety, the body soon develops a tolerance to the drug.
Further abuse and dependency can cause drug-induced mental health conditions to develop. This is known as a dual diagnosis. Substance abuse and dependency pose a major risk to short and long-term mental and cognitive ability, especially if a preexisting condition is present.
Individuals with preexisting mental health conditions who continuously abuse Librium may develop depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and even experienced coma or death as a result.

Treatment for Librium Addiction

Common treatments for Librium addiction include a combination of counseling, psychotherapy and pharmaceutical intervention to treat cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Many rehab centers begin with a medical detoxification process to rid the body of the toxins of drugs. It is important to note that every patient and situation are unique, and treatment varies. Plans are developed specific to each individual’s history and needs.
Inpatient and outpatient treatment are offered at many mental health treatment centers or rehabilitation clinics. However, if the case is too severe to receive treatment in an outpatient setting, then inpatient care is the best option.
Librium addiction treatment services are provided by healthcare professionals, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, psychiatric nurses, and social workers. Typically, only a licensed medical doctor such as a psychiatrist can prescribe medication. However, in some states, psychologists can prescribe medication.
