My daughter has epilepsy along with a number of other neurological problems. We were given Diastat to have on hand if she were to have a long seizure or a large cluster. This is the first time we have ever had to use it. She stopped seizing, so the neurologist we spoke to said as long as they don't start back up, she is ok and to call her regular doctor tomorrow (spoke to on call because of the holiday). My question is... how long will she be sleepy and out of it? I am just curious. She is almost asleep. Breathing deeply. Seems comfortable. The dose was 7.5mg and she is 3 years old. Thanks. Answered by Dominick Chesher 1 year ago.

The main side effects of the diazepam will only last between 4 and 6 hours.. That's how fast the body metabolises it. BUT she may be sleepy well into tomorrow and out of it simply because seizing is EXHAUSTING! I'm speaking from personal experience (I had a seizue about a week ago and dislocated my collar bone in the process... I didn't even notice I was in pain for a day and a half because I slept for the next 13 hours and was a zombie for another 16!). So, even when the meds where off, she'll probably sleep.

First try, less than a second. Within three tries I got past a minute.

I have seizures where I do things like run out into the street. How can I live a normal life?
Keppra 3 thousand mg, Topamax 200, Xanax and Diastat for seizure aura. Yes I am under a doctors care and tried brain surgery. Asked by Greta Paddick 1 year ago.

Why did you try brain surgery for seizures? Please get a different neurologist. I really think that the problem is the medication and not you personally. I think you are taking way too much and should get re-evaluated in the hospital. There they can keep track of what sets off these types of brain waves that make you do things like this. If you don't you're taking a big chance on these actions taking your life. Taking the diastat and xanax depending on the dosage is contraindicated and the diastat is not for long term usage. You need to be under observation to see the problem as they happen while they are observing your brain waves. This way the neurologists can see exactly what's happening when it happens. Please call and make an appointment with a different one. When you do tell them exactly what's happening and the medication you're on too. This way you can get in faster. When you see the new doctor ask them if this would be possible. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Isaura Paulk 1 year ago.

Diazepam? is it used for a sleeping pill?
Asked by Thuy Dobre 1 year ago.

GENERIC NAME: diazepam BRAND NAME: Valium, Diastat DRUG CLASS: Diazepam is an anti-anxiety medication in the benzodiazepine family, the same family that includes alprazolam (Xanax), clonazepam (Klonopin), lorazepam (Ativan), flurazepam (Dalmane), and others. Diazepam and other benzodiazepines act by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter (a chemical that nerve cells use to communicate with each other) that inhibits activity in the brain. It is believed that excessive activity in the brain may lead to anxiety or other psychiatric disorders. Answered by Lyla Ziebell 1 year ago.

Difference between xanax, valium, and klonopin?
They are all benzodiazepines I understand this. They are all schedule IV drugs to posess but what is the main difference between all of these drugs? Please only serious answers. Asked by Chere Brassil 1 year ago.

All you need to know about benzodiazepines Ativan (lorazepam) Klonopin (clonazepam) Librium (chlordiazepoxide) Tranxene (clorazepate dipotassium) Valium / Diastat (diazepam) Xanax (alprazolam) Primarily known as anti-anxiety medications and sleep aids, the benzos are actually anticonvulsants, and as such they do act as mood stabilizers. However, they are not a first-line mood stabilizer. They are weak ones at best, and their highly addictive nature and potential for abuse just don't make their case for them. Their big advantage is that they act quickly. If seizures or mania or anxiety are happening right now then a benzo is just the thing. They are often listed in the package inserts as the thing to administer in case of seizures caused by other meds, probably because someone is far more likely to have some Ativan on hand than some phenobarbital. All benzos are interchangeable, be they brand or generic, they all act exactly the same way; the first fifteen to twenty minutes they make me more nervous then they calm him down tremendously for six to ten hours before knocking you out. For most people there are noticeable differences in how quickly each benzo takes effect, how long it lasts, what secondary effects there are, and how addictive it is. These differences are especially apparently in the three most popular (in the US) benzos - Ativan (lorazepam), Klonopin (clonazepam) and Xanax (alprazolam) Some people can be addicted to Xanax after just a couple days on the minimum dose and go through the worst withdrawal symptoms possible when they stop. All benzos do work basically in the same way; they enhance the way GABA works. GABA is the neurotransmitter that really mellows us out. There are specific benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, but they don't seem to matter much to the desired effects of these meds. Those receptors may have plenty to do with the physical dependence and many drug-drug interactions. Everything else is all a matter of fine tuning specific effects. As there appears to be little difference between the brand and generic forms for the majority of people, just get the generic form of the preferred benzodiazepine from a local pharmacy. That's inexpensive enough. Only brand Klonopin and generic clonazepam have had reports of significant differences in effect for mood stabilization and anti-seizure effect. Dosage equivalents of benzodiazepines: 1mg Ativan = 0.5mg Klonopin = 25mg Librium = 15mg Tranxene = 10mg Valium = 0.5mg Xanax. If you need to suddenly switch from one to another because of a sudden bad reaction you're pretty much OK swapping any benzodiazepine for any other in case of emergency. Unless you've been taking Xanax for long enough to become dependent upon it. Then you're hosed. Xanax requires Xanax for discontinuation. You can try switching between brand and generic and that's it. Answered by Yuk Logie 1 year ago.

Klonopin And Xanax Answered by Denyse Orlosky 1 year ago.

Xanax is An antianxiety agent (trade name Xanax) of the benzodiazepine class..Valium is A tranquilizer (trade name Valium) used to relieve anxiety and relax muscles; acts by enhancing the inhibitory actions of the neurotransmitter GABA..i only know about Xanax and valium but not about klonopin i hope these 2 help.. Answered by Doretha Slonecker 1 year ago.

I have been on all three. I think it differs person to person. I am on Xanax and they give me a very calm feeling. I don't get as relaxed on Valium. Klonopins are anti anxiety and for people prone to seizures. Answered by Elise Cwalinski 1 year ago.

If you go to the webdite drugs.com it will give you detailed info on each med and dosage. I take xanax have for years for anxiety and panic attacks, depending on what you need the meds for each have different side effects not much differnce but some and depending on the dosage and period of use some are more likely to be addictive, best I can give ya hope it helped Answered by Azzie Coney 1 year ago.

Clorazepate Dipotassium Answered by Clarissa Golding 1 year ago.

they are all the same class of medications, diazepam is longer acting and takes your body longer to metabolize and get rid of All the benzodiazepines you listed are not recommended for long term use. Your body develops a tolerance to their sedative, muscle relaxing, or anti-seizure effects. They can be used for anxiety, but they are like bandaids and are not treating the causes of anxiety. The best treatment would be an SSRI Answered by Melani Volmar 1 year ago.

xanax is the best.Now for a iv drug try some versed. Answered by Terresa Caudill 1 year ago.

Keppra 3 thousand mg, Topamax 200, Xanax and Diastat for seizure aura. Yes I am under a doctors care and tried brain surgery. Asked by Alanna Morneau 1 year ago.

Why did you try brain surgery for seizures? Please get a different neurologist. I really think that the problem is the medication and not you personally. I think you are taking way too much and should get re-evaluated in the hospital. There they can keep track of what sets off these types of brain waves that make you do things like this. If you don't you're taking a big chance on these actions taking your life. Taking the diastat and xanax depending on the dosage is contraindicated and the diastat is not for long term usage. You need to be under observation to see the problem as they happen while they are observing your brain waves. This way the neurologists can see exactly what's happening when it happens. Please call and make an appointment with a different one. When you do tell them exactly what's happening and the medication you're on too. This way you can get in faster. When you see the new doctor ask them if this would be possible. Good luck and God Bless Answered by Meredith Servantes 1 year ago.

Diazepam and other benzodiazepines act by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain.

Difference between xanax, valium, and klonopin?
They are all benzodiazepines I understand this. They are all schedule IV drugs to posess but what is the main difference between all of these drugs? Please only serious answers. Asked by Elda Leibel 1 year ago.

All you need to know about benzodiazepines Ativan (lorazepam) Klonopin (clonazepam) Librium (chlordiazepoxide) Tranxene (clorazepate dipotassium) Valium / Diastat (diazepam) Xanax (alprazolam) Primarily known as anti-anxiety medications and sleep aids, the benzos are actually anticonvulsants, and as such they do act as mood stabilizers. However, they are not a first-line mood stabilizer. They are weak ones at best, and their highly addictive nature and potential for abuse just don't make their case for them. Their big advantage is that they act quickly. If seizures or mania or anxiety are happening right now then a benzo is just the thing. They are often listed in the package inserts as the thing to administer in case of seizures caused by other meds, probably because someone is far more likely to have some Ativan on hand than some phenobarbital. All benzos are interchangeable, be they brand or generic, they all act exactly the same way; the first fifteen to twenty minutes they make me more nervous then they calm him down tremendously for six to ten hours before knocking you out. For most people there are noticeable differences in how quickly each benzo takes effect, how long it lasts, what secondary effects there are, and how addictive it is. These differences are especially apparently in the three most popular (in the US) benzos - Ativan (lorazepam), Klonopin (clonazepam) and Xanax (alprazolam) Some people can be addicted to Xanax after just a couple days on the minimum dose and go through the worst withdrawal symptoms possible when they stop. All benzos do work basically in the same way; they enhance the way GABA works. GABA is the neurotransmitter that really mellows us out. There are specific benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, but they don't seem to matter much to the desired effects of these meds. Those receptors may have plenty to do with the physical dependence and many drug-drug interactions. Everything else is all a matter of fine tuning specific effects. As there appears to be little difference between the brand and generic forms for the majority of people, just get the generic form of the preferred benzodiazepine from a local pharmacy. That's inexpensive enough. Only brand Klonopin and generic clonazepam have had reports of significant differences in effect for mood stabilization and anti-seizure effect. Dosage equivalents of benzodiazepines: 1mg Ativan = 0.5mg Klonopin = 25mg Librium = 15mg Tranxene = 10mg Valium = 0.5mg Xanax. If you need to suddenly switch from one to another because of a sudden bad reaction you're pretty much OK swapping any benzodiazepine for any other in case of emergency. Unless you've been taking Xanax for long enough to become dependent upon it. Then you're hosed. Xanax requires Xanax for discontinuation. You can try switching between brand and generic and that's it. Answered by Gene Oganesian 1 year ago.

they are all the same class of medications, diazepam is longer acting and takes your body longer to metabolize and get rid of All the benzodiazepines you listed are not recommended for long term use.

Answered by Rosanne Olton 1 year ago.

The main side effects of the diazepam will only last between 4 and 6 hours.. That's how fast the body metabolises it. BUT she may be sleepy well into tomorrow and out of it simply because seizing is EXHAUSTING! I'm speaking from personal experience (I had a seizue about a week ago and dislocated my collar bone in the process... I didn't even notice I was in pain for a day and a half because I slept for the next 13 hours and was a zombie for another 16!). So, even when the meds where off, she'll probably sleep.
