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.

this is my fourth day on 300mg and my Dr is decreasing the dose slowly over the next 8-10 days. I have been feeling much better but after 100mg tonight cant seem to get to sleep. My major concern is can I overdose? I did take an extra 25mg tonigh to try and get some sleep.
