Oxazepam Withdrawal and Tapering Help

Benzodiazepines are one of the most widely prescribed medications in the U.S, according to Medical News Today. Contact the Prescription Drug Experts for help! Our NonProfit has been helping people withdraw safely for over 14 Years.

Oxazepam is a short to intermediate acting Benzodiazepine, used to treat anxiety and insomnia. Oxazepam is metabolized in the liver to inactive metabolites that are largely excreted in the urine. Liver damage from Oxazepam is generally due to the toxic effects of an intermediate metabolite produced during metabolism.

All benzodiazepines, including Oxazepam, should be taken for short periods of time only (no more than 2-4 weeks). Continuous use can lead to tolerance and addiction.  Tolerance is where a larger dose is needed to provide the calming effect and once tolerance is reached, the effect of the drug diminishes. Oxazepam is highly addictive and can cause the Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Syndrome, a painful withdrawal that interrupts every aspect of life. The risk of withdrawals is greater with higher dosages and continued use, but even short-term use can cause dependence. Contact Us if you need help tapering Oxazepam or have questions.

Oxazepam history and info

Oxazepam was patented and marketed in 1965 and is the metabolite of Diazepam (Valium) and Temazepam (Restoril).  Oxazepam has been largely replaced in the United States by other Benzodiazepines, but is still used in Canada and other countries around the world.

Diazepam is metabolized through liver enzyme pathways into three pharmacologically active metabolites. The primary urinary metabolite is nordiazepam (desmethyldiazepam) that is subsequently transformed into Oxazepam, the end product (similar to morphine in heroin metabolism).

Oxazepam affects GABA, the most common calming neurotransmitter of the body.  By continually increasing GABA, the natural inhibitory nature of GABA is down regulated, allowing the stimulating neurotransmitter Dopamine to increase. Continued use of Oxazepam lowers the natural calming affect of GABA and the initial calming provided by the drug is replaced with anxiety, fear, increased pain and insomnia.

Oxazepam is metabolized in the liver to inactive metabolites that are largely excreted in the urine. Liver damage from Oxazepam is generally due to the toxic effects of an intermediate metabolite produced during metabolism.  Oxazepam can cause birth defects in an unborn baby and should not be used during pregnancy. Serotonin levels also drop in response to the high GABA levels, and this helps to explain by so many experience serious depression while in Benzodiazepine addiction.
