    After years of alcohol abuse I went into treatment and was on 300mg for a while and then gradually weened down off of it .The only thing I did not like was the feeling of not touching the ground while I was walking .Other than that I found it to be very helpful

    I recently went to detox for 6 days for alcohol withdrawal. They put me on Librium for 3 days and then continued vitamins for the rest of my stay. I came out completely refreshed. Librium took care of the shakes, nervousness, hallucinations and tremors. My doctor prescribed me 10 mg to have at home when needed for anxiety.
