Chlordiazepoxide is used for treating moderate to severe depression with moderate to severe anxiety. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor. Amitriptyline/chlordiazepoxide is a combination tricyclic antidepressant and benzodiazepine. How tricyclic antidepressants improve depression symptoms is not fully known. They are thought to increase the activity of certain chemicals in the brain (norepinephrine, serotonin), which help improve mood. The benzodiazepine works in the brain to decrease anxiety.
