Tranxene Dosage

Your Tranxene dosage is determined by several factors, including the condition being treated, your age, and if any other medical conditions are present, among other things. For example, when treating epilepsy in adults and adolescents age 12 and over, the recommended starting dosage is 7.5 mg three times a day. When treating children between ages 9 and 12, Tranxene dosage guidelines call for 7.5 mg twice a day.

Tranxene Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Tranxene® (clorazepate dipotassium) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • Your age
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Other medications you may be taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your Tranxene dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Tranxene Dosage for Alcohol Withdrawal

The recommended starting dose of Tranxene for alcohol withdrawal is Tranxene 30 mg for the first dose, followed by Tranxene 15 mg two to four times daily -- all within the first 24 hours. For a few days, the Tranxene dosage is usually slowly decreased, and the medication is stopped once you are stable.
 
Only the regular immediate-release Tranxene T-Tabs (or generic clorazepate) is recommended for this use. Extended-release Tranxene-SD tablets should not be used for treating alcohol withdrawal.
