Brief Answer:
Not a narcotic

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome,

Tranxene is the medication Clorazepate. This medicine is in the same family as Valium, Ativan (lorazepam) and Xanax (alprazolam). These are benzodiazepines and are not narcotics.

Benzodiazepines and narcotics are both sedating, but are in different families and have different mechanisms of action.

I hope this information answers your question. Please let me know if I can provide further information or clarification.
