How Libnam Tablet works

Libnam 5 mg/2.5 mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Chlordiazepoxide and Clidinium. Chlordiazepoxide is a benzodiazepine. It works by increasing the action of GABA, a chemical messenger which suppresses the abnormal and excessive activity of the nerve cells in the brain.

I've been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome for 4 years. Morning one episode of watery diarrhea after breakfast. I consulted a doctor and he gave me Ramosetron Hydrochloride 5mcg and advised to use half of the Tablet at night before food and I got temporary cure. But after when I stop the Tablet the problem is recurring so I request you to suggest some better remedy for this condition. And can continue with the same Tab I used?. Is it good for a long term use?. Is there any severe side effect with the Tab? Thanking You, PATIENT
