Oxazepam Drug Information

People who are dealing with anxiety or alcohol withdrawal may find relief with oxazepam (Serax®). This medication comes in capsule form and is taken three to four times a day, depending on the condition being treated, your medical history, and other factors. It works by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a naturally occurring calming chemical in the brain.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with oxazepam, inform your healthcare provider if you have a history of drug or alcohol abuse, depression, or other problems. Also let him or her know about any other medications you are taking, including nonprescription products or supplements. This will help ensure that this is the right medicine for you.
