What is Tripoxide?

Tripoxide is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peens). Tripoxide affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety.

Tripoxide is used to treat anxiety disorders or alcohol withdrawal.

Tripoxide may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Tripoxide indications

An indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol. A patient should be aware of the indications of medications used for common conditions because they can be taken over the counter in the pharmacy meaning without prescription by the Physician.

Tripoxide Hydrochloride Capsule is indicated for the management of anxiety disorders or for the short term relief of symptoms of anxiety, withdrawal symptoms of acute alcoholism, and preoperative apprehension and anxiety. Anxiety or tension associated with the stress of everyday life usually does not require treatment with an anxiolytic.

The effectiveness of Tripoxide Hydrochloride Capsule in long-term use, that is, more than 4 months, has not been assessed by systematic clinical studies. The physician should periodically reassess the usefulness of the drug for the individual patient.

Uses of Tripoxide in details

Tripoxide description


A carbamate with hypnotic, sedative, and some muscle relaxant properties, although in therapeutic doses reduction of anxiety rather than a direct effect may be responsible for muscle relaxation. Tripoxide has been reported to have anticonvulsant actions against petit mal seizures, but not against grand mal seizures (which may be exacerbated). It is used in the treatment of anxiety disorders, and also for the short-term management of insomnia but has largely been superseded by the benzodiazepines. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p603) Tripoxide is a controlled substance in the U.S.
