Librium

When and How to Take It

Some general considerations for when and how to take Librium include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in capsule form. It is taken by mouth, usually two to four times daily.
     
  • Librium can be taken with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • You dosage should be taken at the same times each day to maintain an even level in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Librium may cause serious problems if you take it in higher dosages or for a longer period of time than your healthcare provider recommends (see Librium Addiction).
     

Dosing Information

The dose of Librium your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
