Mental Health Home > Librium Side Effects
Serious Side EffectsSome side effects with Librium, while occurring infrequently, are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include but are not limited to:
- Depression (or worsening of existing depression)
- Severe dizziness or problems with balance, especially if this causes you to fall
- Low blood pressure (hypotension)
- Suicidal thoughts
- Difficulty breathing
- Anxiety, excitation, or agitation
- Hostility, aggression, or rage
- Signs of blood disorders, including easy bruising or bleeding or frequent infections
- Signs of liver problems, such as yellowing of the whites of the eyes or skin (jaundice)
- Signs of an allergic reaction, including an unexplained rash, hives, itching, and unexplained swelling.
It is possible that you may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Librium. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
