Uses

Alcohol Withdrawal and Anxiety Disorders

Oxazepam shares the actions of other benzodiazepines and is used for the management of agitation associated with acute alcohol withdrawal and for the management of anxiety disorders or for the short-term relief of symptoms of anxiety or anxiety associated with depressive symptoms. Anxiety or tension associated with the stress of everyday life usually does not require treatment with an anxiolytic. The efficacy of oxazepam for long-term use (i.e., longer than 4 months) has not been evaluated. The need for continued therapy with the drug should be periodically reassessed.

Dosage and Administration

Administration

Oxazepam is administered orally in divided doses.

Dosage

Dosage of oxazepam must be individualized, and the smallest effective dosage should be used (especially in geriatric or debilitated patients and in those with low serum albumin) to avoid oversedation.

For the symptomatic treatment of mild to moderate anxiety, the usual adult dosage of oxazepam is 10-15 mg 3 or 4 times daily. For severe anxiety or the management of agitation associated with acute alcohol withdrawal, 15-30 mg may be given 3 or 4 times daily. In geriatric patients, oxazepam therapy should be initiated with 10 mg 3 times daily and increased to 15 mg 3 or 4 times daily, if necessary. In patients who have received prolonged (e.g., for several months) oxazepam therapy, abrupt discontinuance of the drug should be avoided since manifestations of withdrawal can be precipitated; if the drug is to be discontinued in such patients, it is recommended that dosage be gradually tapered.

Dosage of oxazepam for children 6-12 years of age has not been clearly established.
