Frequently asked questions

Q. Is Relaxo an antidepressant? What is it used for?
Relaxo is not an antidepressant and belongs to a group of medicines called benzodiazepine. It is used to treat severe anxiety (an emotional state where you may sweat, tremble, feel anxious and have a fast heartbeat) or agitation. It is also used to treat trembling, muscle spasm due to tetanus or poisoning, seizures or fits, confusional states or anxiety associated with alcohol withdrawal. It also helps in relaxing patients before minor operations or procedures.
Q. How long does it take for Relaxo to start working?
It depends on what you are taking Relaxo for. If you are taking it to treat anxiety, you should start feeling better within a few hours, but it may take a week or two before the full benefits become evident. Similarly, if you are taking it to relieve muscle spasm you may notice a difference after 15 minutes. Your muscles will start relaxing when you keep taking Relaxo regularly for a few days.
Q. Does Relaxo cause sleepiness? If yes, then should I stop driving while taking Relaxo?
Yes, Relaxo causes drowsiness very commonly. It also causes forgetfulness and affects muscular function which may adversely affect your ability to drive. Sometimes, drowsiness persists even on the following day. So, in case Relaxo makes you sleepy and affects your alertness, you should avoid driving.
Q. Is it safe to take Relaxo and alcohol together?
No, it is not at all recommended to take alcohol with Relaxo since it can cause breathing problems, sleepiness and heart problems. Taking Relaxo with alcohol may make you sleepy and your breathing may become so shallow that you may not wake up. This may even lead to death.
Q. Is Relaxo addictive?
People taking Relaxo in high doses or for a long term may become addicted to it. Also, people with a history of alcoholism and drug abuse are more likely to become addicted to Relaxo. Therefore, Relaxo should be taken for the shortest possible time and in the lowest effective dose.
Q. Can I stop taking Relaxo if I start feeling better?
No, do not stop taking Relaxo suddenly as you may experience withdrawal effects like depression, nervousness, difficulty in sleeping, irritability, sweating, upset stomach or diarrhea. Stopping it suddenly may even bring back the symptoms and make them harder to treat. You may also experience mood changes, anxiety, restlessness and changes in sleep patterns. These effects may occur even after taking low doses for a short period of time.
Q. For how long should I take Relaxo?
The duration of treatment with Relaxo is mainly as short as possible. Your doctor will evaluate you after 4 weeks of treatment in order to assess the need of continuation of treatment, especially if you do not have any symptoms. In general, the treatment does not last any longer than 8-12 weeks which includes the gradual reduction of dose process.
Q. Does Relaxo have any effect on contraception?
Relaxo does not affect the functioning of any type of contraception including the birth control pills and emergency contraception. Birth control pills can keep Relaxo in your body for a long time and increase its effect. You can also experience bleeding in between your periods if you take Relaxo and birth control pills together. But your contraceptive method will still work.
Q. Is it safe to take clozapine and Relaxo together?
No, it is not recommended to take clozapine and Relaxo together because the effects of both medicines may get added together. This can result in severe drop in blood pressure, breathing problems (respiratory depression) and can even stop your heart which can lead to death.
Q. Is Relaxo safe to be used in elderly patients?
The dose in elderly is generally half of the dose recommended to young people. This is because Relaxo causes muscle relaxation which can make the patient fall down, which may further lead to fractures.
