Tranxene: Clorazepate (brand name Tranxene) is a benzodiazepine possessing sedative, hypnotic and anxiolytic properties. It exerts powerful, long-lasting, anti-anxiety and muscle relaxant effects. Desmethyldiazepam is responsible for most of the therapeutic effects of clorazepate.

  • In fact, the combination of alcohol and Tranxene could cause users to stop breathing or become comatose.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency designates Tranxene and other benzodiazepines as a Schedule IV controlled substance available only through a physician’s prescription. Buying or selling Tranxene on the street is illegal and an arrestable offense.

Tranxene is primarily prescribed for treating:

  • epilepsy
  • alcohol withdrawal syndrome
  • relieve chronic anxiety
  • insomnia
  • severe muscle spasms

Dosages

Typical doses of Tranxene for anxiety can generally be around 30 mg per day for adults depending on a variety of variables. (only as prescribed by a doctor). This is NOT medical advice.

How Tranxene Works

Like other benzodiazepines and alcohol, Tranxene increases efficiency of transmitting the neurotransmitter GABA by stimulating GABA receptors to bond more effectively with benzodiazepine molecules. Tranxene binds readily to blood proteins and will cross over into breast milk and the placenta.

How Long For Tranxene To “Kick-In”

Within 30 to 120 minutes of taking Tranxene, users generally feel its effects as the drug reaches peak plasma levels.

Side Effects

Common side effects of taking 30 mg of Tranxene might include:

  • Drowsiness/sleepiness
  • Euphoria
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry vision
  • Dry mouth
  • Reduced motor and cognitive functioning

Some Tranxene users report paradoxical effects, such as feeling excited and hyperactive. Other adverse effects reported are confusion, hangover-like symptoms, amnesia and depression.

Tranxene Overdose

People who take life-threatening overdoses of Tranxene are usually addicted to the drug and must take higher doses to feel its sedative effects.

  • People should never take more than 90 mg of Tranxene in a 24 hour period.

An overdose may also happen when the user forgets how much Tranxene they have taken.

Signs of overdosing on Tranxene include:

  • Inability to remain conscious
  • Reduced respiratory and heart rates
  • Difficulty breathing/slow breathing
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion/delirium

Coma and death may result if a Tranxene overdose is not treated immediately with supportive medical procedures such as gastric suction (stomach pumping), fluid replacement and intubation.

Mixing Tranxene With Alcohol

Combining alcohol with Tranxene will intensify the effects of both drugs and put users at an increased risk of suffering life-threatening symptoms.

  • In fact, the combination of alcohol and Tranxene could cause users to stop breathing or become comatose.

Since alcohol and benzodiazepines both depress the central nervous system, mixing Tranxene and alcohol will induce extreme sedation and dangerously slow breathing by acting on glutamate and GABA receptors.
