What is chlordiazepoxide-clidinium bromide?

Chlordiazepoxide-clidinium bromide is no longer available in the United States.

The combination of chlordiazepoxide and clidinium bromide is the same as chlordiazepoxide-clidinium, and it is a medication known by the brand name Librax. It is used for peptic ulcer disease, irritable bowel disease and gastroenteritis. Chlordiazepoxide is a benzodiazepine (used for anxiety). Clidinium is an antispasmodic. The combination is used by people who have ulcers of the stomach, irritable bowel syndrome and intestinal inflammation. It is used by those who have these conditions in conjunction with stress and anxiety. Chlordiazepoxide produces a calming effect by acting on certain chemicals in the brain, and clidinium controls spasms that occur in the gastrointestinal tract, while reducing stomach acid secretion.
