Specific Librium side effects cannot be anticipated, but if any develop or change in intensity you should contact your physician immediately.  Only your doctor can determine if you need to continue taking this anti-anxiety medication in spite of  your experiencing any Librium side effects. 

Librium side effects may include:

Confusion, constipation, drowsiness, fainting, increased or decreased sex drive, liver problems, lack of muscle coordination, minor menstrual irregularities, nausea, skin rash or eruptions, swelling due to fluid retention, yellow eyes and skin 

Librium side effects that may be due to rapid decrease or abrupt withdrawal include: 

Abdominal muscle cramps, convulsions, exaggerated feeling of depression, sleeplessness, sweating, tremors and vomiting 

 

Librium side effects and special warnings: 

Librium can possibly cause you to become drowsy or less alert, therefore you should not drive or operate heavy machinery until you are well aware of the Librium side effects.  If you have a history of depression or are currently depressed, you should contact your physician prior to taking this antianxiety medication.  Also, this drug may cause children to be less alert as well.  If you have a hyperactive, aggressive child taking this medication, you should talk to your doctor immediately if you notice contrary reactions such as excitement, stimulation or acute rage.  Also, contact your doctor immediately before taking Librium if you're being treated for porphyria, (a rare metabolic disorder), or kidney or liver disease. 

Possible food drug interactions in addition to Librium side effects: 

Librium will intensify or cause an additive effect when taken with alcohol because it is a central nervous system depressant.  You should never drink alcohol when taking this anti-anxiety medication.  If Librium is taken with other medications, the effects of the medications can be increased, decreased or in other ways possibly altered.  You should always talk with your physician prior to taking or combining Librium with the following: 

  • Antacids such as Maalox and Mylanta

  • Antidepressant drugs known as MAO inhibitors including Nardil and Parnate

  • Antipsychotic medications such as chlorpromazine and trifluoperazine

  • Barbiturates such as Phenobarbital

  • Blood thinning drugs such as Coumadin

  • Cimetidine (Tagamet)

  • Disulfiram (Antabuse)

  • Levodopa (Larodopa)

  • Narcotic pain medicines such as Demerol and Percocet

  • Oral contraceptives

Librium side effects should be noted and reported to your physician immediately.  You should never disregard negative interactions with other medications or Librium side effects.
