Effectiveness

How Limbitrol Ds Affects PatientsChlordiazepoxide has calming, sleep-inducing, appetite-stimulating, and mild pain-relieving effects. It seems to stop some types of activity in the brain stem. Research has shown that it could affect the limbic system in the brain, which is involved in emotion. In one study, hostile monkeys became calmer after taking chlordiazepoxide. Other studies have found that the drug could reduce fear and aggression in rats that had been made aggressive due to brain damage. The dose of chlordiazepoxide used to reduce aggression was much lower than the dose needed to cause drowsiness.
How Limbitrol Ds works in the bodyChlordiazepoxide works by binding to certain sites in the brain, which allows it to increase the effectiveness of a neurotransmitter called GABA. This induces relaxation and reduces anxiety, as well as providing sedative and muscle-relaxing effects.

Limbitrol Ds for Anxiousness associated with Depression
This prescription has allowed me to finally get a good night's sleep. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, so previously it was difficult for me to even fall asleep due to discomfort. Ambien helped me fall asleep but I would always wake up after a few hours. This medication keeps me asleep for around 7 hours, which is great!

Limbitrol Ds for Anxiousness associated with Depression
I felt okay the first week, but then began to experience increased levels of depression and anxiety. These nightmares and thoughts were really terrible, so I stopped taking the medication. I changed my diet and started working out, which made me feel a lot better. A year later and I'm doing things I never thought possible- like rock climbing with friends.
