How does Lexotan (Bromazepam) work?
My doctor prescribed me this medicine since I get very nervous in my presentations at the university, and I was just wondering how it works and how long after I take the medicine will it start working? he told me to take half a pill (I believe each pill is 6mg) I weigh 180 lbs and my height is 5′8 (if that has anything to do)
Thank you for your time
Take this medication by mouth exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not increase your dose, use it more frequently or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed because this drug can be habit-forming. If used for an extended period, do not suddenly stop using this drug without your doctor’s approval. Over time, this drug may not work as well. You can develop a tolerance ie need more for the same effect.
How quickly it works would depend on when you take it in relation to food.
empty stomach – quick action
Full stomach – takes longer to be absorbed.
According to many psychiatric experts Bromazepam has a greater abuse potential than other benzodiazepines because of fast resorption and rapid onset of action. Due to its relatively short halflife and duration of action (8 to 12 hours), withdrawal symptoms may be more severe and more frequently encountered than with long acting benzodiazepines.
Don’t take it unnecessarily, it can be addictive and withdrawal symptoms are not pleasant.
