According to Radient Pharmaceuticals, some of the common side effects patients may experience while taking Lexotanil 3 milligrams include fatigue, drowsiness, confusion, lack of alertness and lack of emotions. Muscle weakness, lack of muscle control and double vision may also occur.

Less common side effects include a change in libido, stomach and intestinal disturbances and skin reactions, states Radient Pharmaceuticals. At the recommended dose, most patients do not experience severe side effects. In most cases, those that do experience negative effects when they start taking Lexotanil, find that symptoms disappear over time.

Radient Pharmaceuticals advises that some substances, such as alcohol, increase the effects of Lexonatil. Other medications, such as antidepressants, antipsychotics and antihistamines, should also be avoided while taking Lexonatil because their effects can be intensified.

The active ingredient in Lexotanil is bromazepam, a psychotropic drug, states Radient Pharmaceuticals. It is used to treat anxiety disorders.
