In reply to Librium in place of Klonapin??, posted by Cindylou on August 30, 2002, at 13:22:21
> Has anyone ever heard of this? I have been taking Klonapin for anxiety, and I had to increase the dose when I started Geodon, due to increased agitation. But the Klonapin just makes me sleepy and foggy-headed. So my pdoc is having me try Librium. I haven't heard much about this one. He says it's an "old" drug ... I've tried many ante-anxiety type drugs and they all make me very sedated, but he said the Librium shouldn't do that.

I took Librium for a few years back in the early 80's. It's not as good for *panic* anxiety as Klonopin is, but it does last a long time (like Klonopin does), and it is good for generalized anxiety, and has much less sedation associated with it.
hope this helps,
