Tranquilizers Tranquilizers are used as an effective sedative. As the name suggests, a tranquilizer induces tranquility in a person. Sedatives can be abused to produce an overly-calming effect and can result in unconsciousness and even death.

Default Common Tranquilizers?

What are some of the common tranquilizers that doctors give out? I take Paxil but I'm not sure if that is a tranquilizer or not. I don't think it is.

When I first started to get panic attacks my doctor gave me a tranquilizer, I forgot the name, but it didn't do a thing for me. He then gave me Paxil which does calm me down.

Are tranquilizers safer to use than drugs like Paxil?

The most common tranquilizers are Valium, Xanax, Serax, Ativan, Klonopin, Librium and Tranxene and they are usually prescribed to treat anxiety.

I think it depends if they are major or minor from what I remember researching when I found out my sister ate many of the common types "like candy". Zen, from what you are noting there it seems you know more about the minor ones. Majors are for those who many think of as "severely disturbed" types (think of psychotic patients for example). And minors are for antipsychotic drugs, most known to everyone as anti anxiety drugs.

My sister has been on both and for most of the family, we all feel she would be better off on major's however the "doctors" she has seen, seem to think otherwise.
