Geode, Librium for Opiate W/D? Why would they need a Benzo? Unless they are withdrawing from ETOH or Benzos.
We give Tylenol, a muscle relaxer, Immodium and Tigan if necessary. We don't give Clonidine, although I have heard it helps.
Librium is indicated for the treatment of insomnia, anxiety and panic attacks. It has also been used as a treatment for acute alcohol or opiate withdrawal. Some early opiate withdrawal symptoms include: Agitation, Anxiety, and Insomnia, (not to mentionMuscle aches, Increased tearing, Runny nose, Sweating, Yawning). Therefore, our MDs and NPs use Librium...hope that helps.
