It works by enhancing the effects of a certain natural chemicals in the body (GABA). It is used to treat anxiety, acute alcohol withdrawal, seizures, relieve muscle spasms, extremely bad night terrors, and sedation before medical procedures.

What is diazepam?
Asked by Roselle Creasy 3 months ago.

• Diazepam is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Diazepam affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety, seizures, and muscle spasms. • Diazepam is used to relieve anxiety, nervousness, and tension associated with anxiety disorders. It is also used to treat certain types of seizure disorders and muscle spasms. • Diazepam may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. Answered by Dalton Raw 3 months ago.

Diazepam is a prescription drug that is used to treat anxiety, acute alcohol withdrawal, or muscle spasms. It's sometimes given before surgery as well. I've heard of it being used to help minimize seizures as well. It's meant to help people relax or put them to sleep usually. And the more common name for this stuff? Valium! Answered by Jona Creehan 3 months ago.

Diazepam is Valium which is a Tranquilzer for your nerves and skelatal problems. It is highly addictive and should be moderated in doses. It pretty much compares to Xanax but if you don't know what it is and the script isn't yours I suggest that you don't take it. Good Luck Answered by Loren Ruwet 3 months ago.

I am finding it hard to cope now nad have a full blown anxiety attack which i just want too stop but i am scared of taking Diazepam incase i have a bad reaction too it. Where can i find out more about Diazepam ? Answered by Mel Hendrick 3 months ago.

It is great you want to know more about Diazepam before taking it. As you may know, Diazepam is the generic name for Valium. This is a anti-anxiety drug in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. One problem with benzos is they can be very addictive. Also, people often have to take higher and higher doses for the med to be effective. If the anxiety is not too bad, you can try breathing slowly deep into your belly. Then slowly and completely exhale. Do this as long as it takes to feel better. Also, breathing into a small paper bag helps. This is not an "old wive's tale." There is a medical reason for why this works. However, I won't bore you with the details. I have found exercise to be very helpful for dealing with depression and anxiety. You can try herbs like kava kava, valerian root, chamomile, hops, passion flower, skullcap. Probably, valerian root and kava kava are the best. However, what many people don't realize is that it usually takes about 3 weeks for some of these herbs to start working. There are other alternative medicine methods to work with anxiety. If your anxiety attacks are really bad and nothing else seems to help, you might try medication on a temporary basis. One problem with Valium is that it stays in your body a really long time. You might ask your doctor about Ativan or Xanax, which leave your body very quickly. Most doctors avoid prescribing Valium because it stays in the body for so long. They prefer using meds like Ativan or Xanax. You really should try to see a psychiatrist instead of your gp. Psychiatrists have much more knowledge about psych drugs. Psychotherapy might also help you get to the root of your anxiety, instead of just dealing with the symptom by taking a pill. In terms of anxiety, research shows that psychotherapy plus meds is frequently better than meds alone or therapy alone. I wish you the best. EDIT: Talk to your doctor about your fears of taking Diazepam. He or she might recommend a lower dose or a different drug. Answered by Deangelo Sprinkles 3 months ago.

You should go back and talk to your doctor about this "problem" and ask to be referred to a Psychologist if possible. WHY?? Obviously by your Question you have GAD (General Anxiety Disorder) This is a "little' different that just saying you have Anxiety and/or Panic attacks, as they come from time to time. GAD is with U as a "friend" ALL the time.(not a good friend) Diazapan (Valium) usually in a dosage of 5mg, is usually very effective in treating a Panic Attack....NOT an Anxiety attack IF U are a GAD sufferer, U will experience from time to time Panic attacks on top of the Anxiety NOT what U are saying , an Anxiety attack. . There IS a REAL difference. Because: Anxiety as GAD is constant, often from morning til nite. BECAUSE (and UNDERSTAND this) you fear medications and are also scared (fearsome) of taking Valium for the fear of side effects, your Mind will react to this (even subconsciously) and taking Valium may NOT work on U AT ALL. Not only will U NOT experience side effects..the effects of the Valium will NOT be felt at all.>> in ANY way whatsoever. Some doctors prescribe an anti depressant, and some GAD sufferers say they feel better on an anti depressant..others disagree. I do not like anti depressants. In so far as side effects from Valium, while the drug companies put out leaflets and mention side effects..in reality..there are usually NONE. It is addictive, but ONLY, if U were to be consuming them daily, at around 3 to 4 5mg a day over a 2/3 week period. And not for an actual Panic attack but to ward off what U think, may be a Panic attack coming on. (U should NOT use them as some type of Preventer or Insurance) Most sufferers do not use them in that manner. Often, a warning comes with them, about NOT driving or using machinery while on them..this is ONLY a warning to protect the drug company should U be that one in a million that experience bad side effects.(called drowsiness) The effect they will have IF taken with any alcohol drink is that U will feel sleepy, and may go to sleep, however that WOULD actually rely on the amount of alcohol consumed and usually MORE than 1 by 5mg Valium tablet. Even a 10mg tablet taken with one ot two beers would probably only make U sleepy..More would NOT be recommended at all. NOTE: That THIS type of Question may make U open to some scaring answers. What I have said here is FACT and Your Doctor WILL definitely support my words. {ask him/her} Answered by Alene Johansson 3 months ago.

I felt exactly the same. I started having panic attacks 8 years ago and my gp gave me anti depressants for the long term and diazepam for when i felt an attack coming on but i was too scared to take them because i wasnt sure what they would do to me. They are really just a quick fix anyway and the only thing that worked for me was counselling. Im much better now. Still have the odd wobbly moment but i'm in control of it now. Answered by Ahmed Fogle 3 months ago.

Hi, I have GAD and Major chronic depression I have been on diazepam for a long time. I get very nervous about pills and always research them. Nothing to worry about all it does is relax you, do not take more than prescribed, talk wi/ dr. first. Honestly, valium just relaxes you and stops the panic attack, I do not need to go further, i think u understand. Answered by Melodee Tasse 3 months ago.

Ok this answer may not be what your looking for but im going to speak from my own personal experince and hope it helps you; I suffer from GAD (generalised Anxiety disorder) its a horrible one to have because theirs not a specific thing that sets it off, and i can end up with an anxiety attack at any moment over anything!. I have been on many meds, I think it was citroplasm (apologies if im wrong with the name, i was given this at age 16 and im now 22 so yeah) and that gave me weird side effects i cannot remember what i done, but my teacher to this day refuses to have me within a certain distance of her, according to my class mates i chased her out of the room and it scared her so much she refused to return to the class for the day. I was then taken off the pills and i decided not to take any again, two years later i was prescribed buspiron which actually increased my anxiety, I went from having an attack once a month to a record breaking 3 times a week, i swiftly took myself off them. Then I was given Diazepam, Now that is a pill that works! but its not a pill you should take while at work or about to drive as it makes you extremely drowsy and well if you have ever smoked a joint before you will be able to easily compare being stoned to how it makes you feel, I took two once (i can take up to three a day according to my GP) and i spent the next hour laughing at my hand. The pills do work, but i havent taken mine in 4 months, I save them for when im having a major anxiety attack (dont tell my gp that i dont take em when i should! she will throttle me!! lol!) because they can be highly addictive, and i dont want to be addicted espically to something like that, but they do work! but i suggest you use them when needed and not when your GP tells you too, if you dont have an anxiety attack everyday then theirs no need for them to be taken everyday as simple as that really. hope i have helped! BTW DO NOT DRINK ON DIAZEPAM! its very very dangerous!. Answered by Lyndsay Yaish 3 months ago.

Yes, to all the above. Panic assaults have a variety of severity, from pain to all out sweating like mad, believing you're death, and honestly passing out from the overpowering quantity of mind chemical substances long gone awry. Many matters can cause a panic assault from sub aware ideas, to reminiscences, to occasions that deliver at the signs. The quantity one million solution to give up a panic assault is to take an anti nervousness drug, like xanax. Whether you want a small dose or extra, it's going to alleviate signs inside five - 10 mins. And for a few persons without difficulty having the therapy on them, and consequently optimistic that you are going to give up the panic assault instantly by way of taking the remedy, is without difficulty ample to thrust back the "assault" You have got to be powerful within the face of those matters and remind your self, that is simply mind chemical substances going out of whack deep on your mind stem, it has not anything to do along with your individual, and so on. You will have an underlying nervousness sickness that demands to be evaluated by way of a therapist/psychiatrist they usually would possibly placed you on a everyday therapy to manipulate nervousness. Xanax and comparable medicines are addictive and the dose wanted "to paintings" will upward push if you're taking them too probably. So, best take them to thrust back an assault, no longer manipulate moderate emotions of pain. But, take it early, the longer you allow the assault move on, the extra anguish and meds you can also have got to manage it. Also, if you happen to abuse different medicines, you will have to give up. They will irritate any nervousness issues you may have, although superficially a drink, a bong hit, or different matters calm you down, they don't seem to be powerful approaches to manipulate nervousness.

What is the drug "Diazepam" and what does it remedy?
Asked by Colin Leikam 3 months ago.

It's the generic form of Valium. It is a muscle relaxant (if you're having problems with muscle spasms or the muscles are tensed up and won't relax, it'll help), it can be used to sedate someone (help them sleep or calm them down when they're freaking out), it helps reduce the feelings of being anxious or nervous, and it can also help with seizures. With seizures, it's usually only given in pill form to people with anxiety disorders who have anxiety symptoms as a trigger for epilepsy. It's also a common choice for IV for someone who's in Status Epilepticus, which means they're brain is trapped in a seizure and isn't coming out on its own. Answered by Lanny Baldelli 3 months ago.

Diazepam is really useful for situations like this if you are familiar with it and know your tolerance levels. Its horrible having to do presentations if you suffer from anxiety and if you take the right amount of diazepam at the right time it can make a real difference. The trick is to take it a good few hours before your presentation. This might mean taking it the night before if your presentation is in the morning. This is the best way because diazepam lasts for quite a long time and the effects change over the hours after you take it. You say you've taken it once before, can you remember if you got any of the undesirable side effects like slurring of your speech or your legs going to jelly? This tends to happen in the first few hours after you take diazepam if you take a bit too much. As the hours pass you get to more of a relaxed calm state which is what you would want to achieve for your speech. Since you have only taken it once it would be risky trying to guess how much to take, then take it just before your speech. You could take too much and be noticeably slurring in front of your whole class but you need to take enough to dampen out you anxiety. I would recommend taking a relatively high dose in the evening or before you go to bed on the night before your speech, this way it doesn't matter if you are a bit rubbered because after a good nights sleep you will wake up still feeling the effects you want and in a calm and relaxed state of mind. If you get it right you could be really surprised at how well you can handle a situation which before would have been really unpleasant. I know people are really against advising people to take diazepam because of its addictive potential and i have to agree it can be dangerously addictive if you start to take it all the time. Your body will develop a physical dependence if you take it for prolonged periods. But for people with anxiety it can be a really useful tool to gain control over your state of mind in situations where you are not naturally comfortable. You shouldn't have to suffer through public speaking if it is just not in your nature. That is what i do in similar situations. Because you will know exactly when you are going to be put in this situation you can plan exactly when to take the diazepam and take control of the situation. Hope that helps, i can't advise on how much to take because 10mg could be the right amount for one person but much too much for another. If i had something like an interview on a monday morning, instead of taking 20mg an hour before it i would take 40mg on sunday night and i obviously wouldn't be much use in an interview just after taking 40mg but for the whole of monday id feel like i could deal with anything and be totally relaxed in the interview. Obviously you would want to be taking less as you don't usually take it. Answered by Joy Rissell 3 months ago.

If McCain had said even one thing Obama has, let alone everything B.O. has said, he'd be run out of the country. B.O.'s only talent is speaking. He grew up in a Muslim country, went to a Muslim school that puts out some of the world's worst terrorists, "turned Christian" because a Muslim will never get elected. So he found the most repulsive "Christian" church he could, one that is clearly racist. He listened to their hate and gave them a whole lot of money - until it was going to cost him the election. Then he turned his back on them too. Now he's trying to pull the race card yet again, and a lot people are so fooled by this talented speaker, they still follow him. I haven't seen this type of successful deception since the last video of people cheering/screaming while Hitler spoke about his beliefs. BTW, comparing B.O. to celebrity twits is a perfect analogy. They are wildly popular, but have no substance. THAT is the message. Stop trying to play the race card, it is ugly. It shows you have no education, ability or substance and are grabbing for straws. B.O. is living proof of that. Answered by Wayne Rosemond 3 months ago.

The problem with taking that kind of medication before a speech is that it makes you very foggy. You may feel very slow or sluggish, and mentally clouded, like you can't think. It really kills your energy and essentially causes sleep. If you do decide to take it, I recommend a smaller dose over a larger dose, especially if you have never been prescribed it before. The standard dose is 0.5, and I would not take anymore than that, especially because you do not want to sacrifice your level of alertness and become too foggy. Answered by Cherise Jame 3 months ago.

What I do before a big presentation is the night before I take a half a glass of Phillips Milk of Magnesia followed by a tall cold glass of milk.

Answered by Alex Duprey 3 months ago.

Diazepam is in the Benzodiazepine. Taking a dose of 10mg of Diazepam three times a day is high, although I don't know much about you anxiety, your doctor knows more than I do (But watch out, you don't want to get addicted) Mostly Benzodiazepines are prescribed for short term, or to be taken as needed considering their short half-life and their duration of action. They also act fast, the initial effects felt withing 15 minutes to an hour, lasting for a few hours depending on the drug and dosage. Long term benzodiazepine use can cause addictions, and you may go through benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms when you stop or miss certain doses. You are on the highest dose possible for Diazepam, the other two being 5mg and 2mg. If you take two, nothing terrible will happen, just increased side effects and sedation, and most likely impaired motor control (Tripping over things, etc) Drugs like Effexor or Cipralex or Prozac might be better for helping to manage anxiety long term. Take one pill and see how you feel. If you don't like it, talk to your doctor and maybe switch to a different benzo, or even a non-benzo or an anti-depressant. It might work better. Don't necessarily take all my information word for word. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for additional information and look at wikipedia. They have footnotes that lead to reputable websites that may give you further information. Talk to your doctor, however. He will be able to answer any questions you have. Answered by Carie Monarque 3 months ago.

You shouldn't take diazepam continuously for too long (e.g. more than 2 weeks) as you can get addicted to it and it doesn't have any effect on your anymore and you feel the need to take higher and higher does. Keep taking the sertraline and see how you get on. If your anxiety doesn't improve go back and see your doctor. Also ask your doctor about anxiety management groups which usually run at your local day hospital as in the long term that will be more helpful than medication. Answered by James Schuerman 3 months ago.

you just swallow it with water as needed for anxiety. IT will make you feel relaxed and less anxious, perhaps sleepy and maybe a bit weak/rubbery due its muscle relaxant action. It may cause some disinhibition as you loose anxiety and make you more talkative or out going. if you took 2, the same effects, just more pronounced. If your doctor gave them to you, dont feel bad about taking them, they will just help your anxiety and help you to feel better and be more functional. Answered by Billy Littich 3 months ago.


Lorazepam and Diazepam?
What are the difference between Lorazepam and Diazepam? I already know that 1 mg of Lorazepam is equal to 10 mg of Diazepam. I'm not taking either one. Just curious :] Asked by Yevette Mealor 3 months ago.

Lorazepam and diazepam are drugs used to treat anxiety. They are in the same benzodiazepine family. Lorazepam is the generic name for the brand name drug Ativan. Diazepam is the generic name for the brand name drug Valium. However, 1mg of lorazepam does not equal 10mg of diazepam. They are different drugs.They work differently in your body and react differently to other medications you might be taking. Anxiety is the result of excessive activity of brain nerve cells. Both lorazepam and diazepam are used to treat anxiety but, lorazepam is removed from the blood more rapidly than many other benzodiazepines. This means there is less chance that lorazepam concentrations in blood will reach high levels and become toxic. Lorazepam also has fewer interactions with other medications than most of the other benzodiazepines. Answered by Loralee Wielock 3 months ago.

Ask any pharmacist, drugs are not something you want to ask random, though very intelligent, strangers about. Most big grocery stores have a drug section, ask the person behind the counter. You can not shock them. They will tell you about body chemistry and how drugs are not equal but it all depends on your body and how it reacts to the chemicals in all drugs, even natural ones.

You should go to a doctor and perhaps a psychiatrist and maybe a psychologist.... PAXIL has worked wonders for me in the past. Diazepam you are speaking of only mellows you and could make you tired. The latest drugs are known as SSRIs. I looked up citalopram and it is supposed to be in a similar class as Paxil. Some people have success with one drug but not another. I would suggest you don't drink alcohol with these, it can make the drugs fail. If after a few weeks Paxil or citalopram or another do not work, they probably won't work. Ask your doctor to try other stuff. I am taking drugs for depression that do virtually NOTHING..I still feel like crap. I did have excellent results with Paxil to stop panic attacks though. Answered by Michell Bitah 3 months ago.

Your Valium (diapepam) is for anxiety and will work immediately. Celexa (citalopram) is an anti depressant and needs to build up in your blood over 7-14 days to be effective. Call you MD or pharmacist to make sure you can take the two together while you build up your blood level with the Celexa. If your MD gave the RX's to you at the same time then it should be ok and advised you to take them together then they know best. Be safe and call your MD. Answered by Corinna Bourbon 3 months ago.

I took Diazepam for panic attacks that occurred frequently. I thought that I was dying and no one could calm me down. I drank Diazepam to relax. My entire body would just relax after I drank it. I took it with me everywhere I went. When I had a panic attack I would drink it and my body would relax in 15 minutes. It sounds like this propranolol drug is the same as Diazepam. My doctors took the medicine away because you could get addicted to it. It is not meant to be a long term medicine. If you want a medicine that helps in anxiety in general try Prozac or Xanax.

Let your doctor be the doctor. The information that you find online is just a superficial description of the drug's uses and actions. The problem with prescribing diazepam is that it is extremely addictive. Diazepam should be used only for short-term problems. The generalized anxiety that you have described needs to be treated for a longer period of time, so diazepam is not the best treatment for your anxiety. In addition, diazepam is only for occasional use, not for daily use which you seem to need. Diazepam might be the drug of choice for someone who is fine on a daily basis, but needs an anti-anxiety drug the night before surgery, or only in other specific situations. Having heard a lot about diazepam is not a good reason to ask for it. You want a medication to treat YOU, not someone else. Take the Propanolol, and let your doctor know how well it is working at your next visit. If, after a sufficient period of time, the medication is not working for you, let your doctor decide what other medication to try. Answered by Alesha Matthai 3 months ago.

My university doctor prescribed that for me; it worked great the first day, but then pooped out. A benzodiazipine would work much better for anxiety (there is nothing more potent). Xanax is the most potent, but has a short half-life; only 4 hours, and there is a risk of addiction. I would try the beta blocker first, it might work for you. But w/o question Xanax or Klonopin would knock the anxiety out of you fast. These are controlled substances, so be careful how you approach the doctor. Indicate it is for getting through a presentation and you only need a few at most. most GP's are fine with prescribing these for a short time. It takes 4-6 weeks of chronic use to become addicted. Good luck! Answered by Emmett Ross 3 months ago.

No drug is perfect. Try what your doc recommends for a while and try to make the best of it.

About 6 months ago I was perscribed diazepam in response to pelvic floor muscle spasms. I was told to take 2 mg 3x per day, and was not given a definitive date to stop the drug.

About 6 months ago I was perscribed diazepam in response to pelvic floor muscle spasms. I was told to take 2 mg 3x per day, and was not given a definitive date to stop the drug. After about a month I switched jobs and lost my health insurance so I had to stop seeing my doctor, but was left with 2 bottles of the diazepam. I continued to take the 2 mg x3 for the next 5 months until about a month ago, I dropped down to 2mg a night because I knew I'd run out eventually and wanted to have enough left to taper. In that time I sustained the 2mg but would occasionally take more during the day to combat pain. I started feeling extremely depressed in that 6 month time period, most in the past month, and in the last two weeks I had such extreme anxiety and depression that I can hardly function at work and almost broke up with my boyfriend(for reasons I couldn't even think of). This whole time I thought I was going crazy but I never connected the dots to think the valium was the cause. I have passing episodes of mania and extreme sadness, and a consistent level of anxiety the entire time. I frequently feel like I'm going to cry and am having trouble even coming home to my boyfriend or going to work, I can't deal with life, focus on anything, or feel any emotion other than anxiety. My question is - even though it was a moderately low dosage, because I took it for an extended period of time and because I have a history of depression, could this be the tolerance withdrawal making me feel this way? Additionally I have bad brain fog/fatigue, headache, and flushes of hot and cold, and around the time of my nightly dosage I feel like I'm about to jump out of my skin. Does anyone have any experience with coming off of a long-term dosage of Valium? Is this what I should expect, and for how long? I cut my pill in half 2 days ago and have been feeling even lower.

Diazepam Diazepam is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peens). Diazepam affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety. Diazepam is used to treat anxiety disorders, alcohol withdrawal symptoms, or muscle spasms. Diazepam is sometimes used with other medications to treat seizures. Diazepam may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. Diazepam Rectal Diazepam is a benzodiazepine (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peen). Diazepam affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause seizure. Diazepam rectal is used to treat occasionally increased seizures (cluster seizures) in people with epilepsy who also routinely take other anti-convulsants. Diazepam rectal is not for long-term daily use to prevent seizures. Diazepam rectal may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. Answered by Gita Hilario 3 months ago.

I've had withdrawal from Xanax, a similar drug in the same class as diazepam. If you're in diazepam withdrawal then you should have, at the very least, some increased muscle tension, restlesness, insomnia and possibly slight hand tremors. Not just feeling lethargic, weak or depressed. That would be something else. There are OTC herbals which can reduce help benzodiazepine withdrawal. Chamomile is one of them, as a strong, warm tea, or in tablet form. Answered by Rufina Labriola 3 months ago.
