Hi.

I'm a long-term user of Tranxene in a low dose -- 2 mg a day for years now. I'd like to just stop using it. When I do, however, I develop Burning Mouth Syndrome, which I never had before. Interestingly, benzodiazepines are used to treat Burning Mouth. I'd sure like to stop using the Tranxene. Has anyone else had this issue? Has anyone else had Burning Mouth Syndrome? How do you deal with it?

Thanks.

  • I'm not sure if Tranxen is used for controlling stomach acid, but if it is what is causing your problem you should try cutting your pill in 2. Take half a dose every day for 2 weeks. When the 2 weeks have passed you can take half a dose every other day. If your symtpoms come back at anytime you are still having issues with your stomach and need to continue taking the medicine.
