Is anyone else here taking Librax?  I have been on it for about a year and a half with no problems.  It is a wonder drug for me...the only thing that has ever helped with the stomach pain (what I refer to as spasms).  Lately, my stomach has been bothering me more, so I have increased to the max amount my dr. said I could take - 8 pills a day. 
The last few days, I have been very dizzy and thought maybe I was getting sick, as I have had a headache, trouble breathing, feeling more tired and achy than usual, and running a fever on and off.  Dr. at the Immediate Care Center yesterday said I probably had an upper respiratory infection but that he could not explain the dizziness.  He looked at my list of meds and said he didn't know about them to know if they would cause it.  So, I looked up the side effects to Librax today and everything I have is on the list.  I have a call in to my GI to find out what he wants to do.  I can't stop Librax with the stomach pain I have been having the last few weeks. 
Anyone else have any side effects with Librax and, if so, did you try something else that worked?  Thanks for the input.

Hmmmmm...I've taken Librax prior to being Dx with Crohn's. When they thought I had a spastic colon or IBS. I don't remember ever having any side effects. I also took it many, MANY years ago when I was in 7th grade and having problems being nervous in school. My stomach would start to ache during a particular class.

I've recently had the same kind of symptoms you've had, though, and I'm not on Librax. I found out my Iron was really low and it turns out that low iron can make you feel very fatigued and make you very aware of the fact that you're breathing. Strange, huh? Extreme fatigued can cause all that other stuff like low grade fevers, headaches, muscle aches, numb/dizziness...

Hope you get an answer soon.
