what exactly is this medication used for?Anxiety? or are there other uses?thanks
Asked by Julieann Buffett 6 months ago.
Valium is in a class of medications referred to as sedatives/hypnotics. This means at lower doses, they decrease anxiety and agitation, and at higher doses, they make you fall asleep. The chemical class is called the benzodiazepines, which work on the same part of the brain as alcohol. As a result, they have many similar benefits (think being buzzed or tipsy) and downsides (think addiction and life-threatening withdrawals). Valium is approved for use in short-term anxiety states. Unfortunately, many physicians use it for long-term anxiety, and this is potentially dangerous since the medication's waste persists in the body for several days afterwards, resulting in inadvertent overdosing a couple weeks after finding what appears to be a reasonable dose. Likewise, valium is a very common prescription drug of abuse. It is sought after on the streets since it has the most rapid onset of action of the benzodiazepines, and this results in a more intense high. There is no evidence to support in any forms of pain management, although it is frequently used in conjunction with opioids to extend or intensify their high. Valium has several off-label use. It is used as a third-line agent to treat seizures, especially status epilepticus. It is also used somewhat controversially as a muscle relaxant. As always, discuss these and any questions with your doctor. Answered by Marshall Kurka 6 months ago.

Valium is a Benzodiazapine used to treat anxiety, panic and is also used for sedation. It is in the same class as Xanax, Ativan and Klonapin. It can be addictive, so most Doctors do not like to prescribe it. I took it for my Panic Attacks. Answered by Glory Picado 6 months ago.

What happens when i take a valium?
Asked by Torrie Aceret 6 months ago.
Shawna, Valium is a prescription drug referred to generically as diazepam. It is a widely prescribed anti-anxiety drug and it is also widely abused. Valium is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Other popular benzodiazepines include alprazolam (Xanax), triazolam (Halcion), clonazepam (Klonopin) and lorazepam (Ativan). These drugs are likely to develop tolerance in the user, meaning that more of the drug is needed to get the same effect on a person, and they are also addictive. It is easy to overdose with Valium. Valium is very dangerous when taken with other drugs. Alcohol and Valium together is what killed Thomas Kinkade, the popular artist of cozy country houses and landscapes. A baby born to a Valium-using woman may suffer from withdrawal symptoms and birth defects. The side effects of Valium Range from Uncomfortable to Dangerous. While Valium is designed to calm a person down, in some people it may have the opposite effect. Use or abuse of this drug can result in restlessness, anxiety, hallucinations, rage, aggressiveness and even delusions or psychoses. And though Valium may be given to help some people sleep, some people will experience insomnia, sleep disturbances and nightmares instead. To see the long list of side effects go to the link I left below. Also, the withdrawal symptoms can be even more unpleasant and dangerous. What's more, when a person is fully off Valium that he was taking for anxiety, his anxiety may be even worse when he gets clean than it was before. This is referred to as a "rebound" effect. The Narconon drug recovery program has been helping people find lasting sobriety after addiction to drugs like Valium, alcohol, heroin and others for more than forty-five years. Before you decide to start taking any drug go to the Narconon website and get the truth and information that will save your life. Start by going to the link on Valium I left below.

Effects of Valium....?
does it make you tire or gives you energy what are some effects?
Asked by Bobby Lacerda 6 months ago.
Valium is one of the oldest formulated anxiolytics (it reduces anxiety). In therapeutic doses it should not make you tired. If it does, you should talk with your prescribing physician. The ideal dose merely alleviates anxiety without significant sedation. Obviously, initial doses may be too high and have depressant side effects but unlike true depressants, the purpose of taking Valium is not to put you to sleep, make you tired or sedated. The purpose is to bring your brain chemistry back to normal. Interestingly, Valium (benzodiazepine) and alcohol share very similar neurophysiological/neuropharmacological mechanisms, which may explain why very low doses of alcohol have some stress reducing effects (the opposite happens with more drinking). NEVER mix Valium with alcohol as the interaction can be fatal or permanently debilitating. Answered by Marinda Nall 6 months ago.
Valium is used as a anti-anxiety med. It normally relaxes you and depending on the dose can make you drowsy. I was given some years ago to calm me down after a traumatic experience.

Asked by Shela Leckie 6 months ago.
Unfortunately, when I took valium it didn't do anything for me. After 10 minutes I still had anxiety, even after an hour I still had anxiety. I found that xanaflex provides me with more effective relief than valium. Everybody reacts to medication differently though, so you may not have a reaction like anyone on yahoo. I have provided a list of side effects for you. Common Valium side effects might include: drowsiness, fatigue, light-headedness, and loss of coordination. Operating automobiles or heavy machinery is not recommended while taking Valium. Be aware of how this medication affects you before attempting any potentially dangerous activities. Less common Valium side effects: abdominal cramps, constipation, dry mouth, hyperventilation, blurred vision, nausea, chest pain, change in sex drive, confusion, headache, change in appetite, insomnia, unusual dreams, change in salivation, low blood pressure, racing heartbeat, fainting, nasal congestion, difficulty urinating, sweating, weight change, skin irritation, twitching or tremors, nervous or anxious state, sun sensitivity, respiratory infection, memory impairment, menstrual difficulties, and loss of coordination. Speak to your doctor about any of these effects; your dosage may need to be adjusted or treatment discontinued. Rare Valium side effects: difficulty concentrating, slurred or unusual speech, double vision, fear, altered sense of taste, lack of inhibition, muscle cramps or spasms, urination problems, tingling, incontinence, warmth, weakness, change in muscle tone, or yellow eyes and skin. Speak to your doctor if you experience any of these effects; your treatment may need to be discontinued. Valium treatment should be discontinued if any of the following occur: hyperexcitement, muscle spasm, anxiety, hallucinations, rage, tremors, insomnia, sleeping difficulties or overstimulation. Cautions: Valium has been known to interact undesirably with certain medical conditions. Tell your doctor if you have, or have a history of, any of the following conditions: Alcohol or drug abuse: May increase likelihood of diazepam dependence, as well as increase the possibility of an overdose that could lead to coma or death. Allergic reaction to Valium, or other benzodiazepine: Always tell your doctor about any allergies before starting a medication. Brain disease: May increase likelihood of side effects from diazepam Breathing difficulties such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, or any other chronic lung disease: Diazepam may worsen this condition. Difficulty swallowing: This condition may become more pronounced in children. Epilepsy or seizures: Abruptly starting or stopping treatment with Valium may increase seizures. Although diazepam can be used as an aid to anti-convulsive therapy, it should be used cautiously and strictly according to a doctor's instructions in these cases. Glaucoma: Diazepam should not be prescribed to patients with acute narrow-angle glaucoma. Patients receiving treatment for open angle glaucoma should consult their doctor, as Valium may be an acceptable treatment for them. Hyperactivity: Consider all treatment options with your doctor. Kidney or liver problems: In isolated cases, diazepam has been reported to cause jaundice. If you experience yellowing of the skin or eyes, seek medical treatment immediately. More Valium may end up in your bloodstream if you have a pre-existing kidney or liver condition, increasing the likelihood of side effects. Major Depression: The central nervous system depressant effects of diazepam may worsen this condition. Myasthenia gravis: This autoimmune disorder characterized by muscle weakness may be aggravated by diazepam treatment. Porphyria: Diazepam is listed as an unsafe drug for porphyria, an enzyme deficiency that can cause fragile skin that is sensitive to sunlight, digestive difficulties, anxiety, and reddish-brown urine. Psychosis or other serious mental illness: Diazepam has not proved to be an effective treatment for these conditions, and is not recommended. Sleep apnea (temporary suspension of breathing during sleep): Diazepam may worsen this condition. Individuals with sleep apnea should not generally use sedatives as sleep aids.

So, can I purchase valium from our local drugstore (mercury drug) without a prescription presented? what are the side effects of valium? how much is one pill? Answered by Stefani Guilfoos 6 months ago.
Firstly Valium (diazepam) is NOT a narcotic. Technically, from a scientific view, a narcotic only refers to an opioid analgesic like heroin, morphine, methadone, oxycodone, oxymorphone, hydromorphone, and fentanyl. In many countries including The United States, the LEGAL definition of a narcotic is either an opioid or cocaine/crack. Although many people refer to all drugs with an abuse potential "narcotic" they are incorrect. Valium is a schedule IV controlled substance in The US, Canada, Australia, The Philippines and under International law. It is a class C drug in The United Kingdom. So Valium is a drug of abuse, which is why it is controlled. Valium is NOT approved for treatment (long or short term) of insomnia. It has many medical uses, more so than most drugs, but it is not a good sleeping medication. I am not sure why exactly you want Valium specifically but it is not a good sleeping medication. Some doctors do erroneously prescribe it for sleep but Valium alters you sleep architecture (brain waves when you sleep) witch is divided into several categories, N1, N2, N3, and REM. Valium will, among other things, eliminate sleep stage N3 (delta sleep), the deepest sleep. So you might sleep a full night but quickly you may find your sleep is not very restorative because you are not sleeping properly. There are other drugs that are approved for insomnia and do not have any significant alternation in sleep architecture, examples include temazepam, zolpidem, zaleplon, zopiclone, and eszopiclone. These are, for the most part, the best hypnotics. So please see a doctor, he can prescribe medication based on your exact needs. Zolpidem and zaleplon are best for people who can't fall asleep, temazepam, zopiclone, and eszopiclone are best for people who wake up and/or have problems falling asleep. So depending on the nature and severity of your problem will determine the best medication. Valium and the hypnotics I listed require a prescription and a pharmacy will NOT dispense them without a prescription. I do not know the exact laws in the Philippines (a link to the laws in below) but in most countries it is illegal to obtain Valium and it would be illegal for the pharmacy to dispense however possession alone is typically not a crime. However The Philippines has very strict laws and possession of many drugs can result in death or life in in prison. So please see a doctor and get an appropriate drug. I believe you need a hypnotic but you need a good hypnotic, not Valium. The most common side effects from all the drugs I mentioned, including Valium, are sedation, dizziness, memory loss, loss of inhibitions, muscle weakness (more common with Valium, not the others), blurred vision, and dry mouth.

I don't know if you can get it without prescription, wherever you are, but here's some info on Valium: Diazepam (Trade Name: Valium) Used for anxiety, convulsions, insomnia, seizures, muscle spasms If you take it for sleep then all it's other action will be side effects for you so including the standard side effects: * stomach upset * blurred vision * headache * confusion * depression * impaired coordination * change in heart rate * trembling * weakness * memory loss * hangover effect (grogginess) * dreaming or nightmares I won't go into mechanism or anything else (you obviously don't need that). Obviously don't drive or use machinery when taking this. Can lead to addiction, but unlikely at the dose for minor insomnia (unless you binge on the pills) There are other things you can take such as Kalms tablets (a natural remedy) with very little side effects though if you change your mind.

Valium is a very safe, effective medication; but, it does require a prescription. There are reasonable medical doctors who will write a six month supply without any concern. I guess you should just ask a friend or your family doctor for assistance in finding a caring doc. You are not seeking an opiate rather, a medication that will allow you to function.

Asked by Marilu Brinkerhoff 6 months ago.
An Introduction to Dosing With Valium The dose of Valium® (diazepam) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including: •The medical condition being treated •Your age •Other medications you may be taking •Other medical conditions you may have. Valium Dose for Alcohol Withdrawal The recommended starting dose for alcohol withdrawal is Valium 10 mg, taken three or four times during the first 24 hours. After the first day, the dose is usually lowered to 5 mg, taken three to four times daily as needed. Usually, you will not be on Valium long-term; instead, it is taken just long enough to help your body deal with the initial symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. Dose of Valium for Anxiety For treatment of anxiety disorders or short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety; the recommended amt of Valium dosage depending upon the severity of symptoms is between 2 mg. and 10 mg. taken two to four times daily. Valium Dosage for Muscle Spasms The recommended dose of Valium for treating muscle spasms is 2 mg to 10 mg, taken three or four times daily. Valium Dose for Seizures The recommended dose for controlling seizures is 2 mg to 10 mg, taken two to four times daily. Valium is intended to be used along with other seizure medications. Convulsive disorders The usual valium dosage for convulsive disorders is 2 mmgm to 10 mg two to four times daily Children Valium should never be given to children under the age of six months of age.The usual Valium dosage to start children over six months old is 1 to 2.5 mg three or four times a day. Your physician may increase the medication as needed Older adults The usual starting dosage of this anti anxiety medicine is 2 mg to 2.5 mg once or twice a day, which your doctor will then increase as needed. Your physician will usually limit the Valium dosage to the smallest effective amount possible as older people are more apt to become oversedated and subject to higher risk for falls and other difficulties associated with lack of coordination. Valium Overdosage Any medication including this anti anxiety medicine, if taken in excess of the prescribed dosage can be dangerous and ultimately have serious consequences. If you suspect an overdose, you should seek medical attention immediately. Symptoms of Valium overdosage may include: Coma, confusion, diminished reflexes, sleepiness Therefore the answer to your question: It's okay to take 30 mgm of Valium at 10 mgm 3X a day for anxiety. As with any other medication; it's very impt to space the oral ingestion of any medication for its effectiveness and to maintain the level of the med in the bloodstream. You probably will be okay after ingesting 30 mgm of Valium all at once.Do not attempt to drive as you are physically and mentally impaired due to decreased reflexes and blurred or double vision; drowsiness, sleepiness, tremulous and weak. You just need to sleep it off. and drink a lot of fluids. Answered by Dede Boll 6 months ago.

What is the main difference between Valium and Xanax?
Asked by Fatima Urmston 6 months ago.
Both xanax and valium are more or less equally effective and help in warding off anxiety and depression. But major differences lie behind their actions and their potency leading to approximately 20-fold variations. Xanax tablet comes in two doses, 0.25mg and 0.50mg whereas Valium comes in doses of 5mg and 10mg. 0.50mg of xanax is equivalent to 10mg of valium. This simply indicates that a person on 5mg of xanax daily takes approx. 120mg of valium, which is considered as a very high dose. Though not many studies have been conducted on potency difference, but it definitely matters when one switches from one benzodiazepine to another. Moreover, Xanax is a sedative that causes dependence within few weeks if taken regularly. Valium belongs to the same class of benzodiazepines, however, it tends to cause more drowsiness and can lead serious consequences if taken before driving or working with heavy machinery. Found best so far in treating depression and anxiety disorders, xanax valium not only carries positive effects but also have a trail of withdrawal symptoms when discontinued. Both show unpleasant symptoms if stopped abruptly. These withdrawal symptoms include psychosis, seizures, and severe anxiety. Thus, it is advised to consult a doctor and to stop these drugs gradually. Few more things that you should know about xanax valium and other benzodiazepines are; Valium is an awfully long acting drug and thus can be detected in the body up to three weeks, whereas xanax is believed to be very short acting and is detectable only up to three days. Prolonged use can result into accumulation of drugs in body especially fatty tissues. It may worsen the withdrawal symptoms when you wish to discontinue the drugs. Insomnia can be treated with these drugs if taken 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime. Well all is good about these anxiety and depression healers but one should anticipate some common side effects that may appear during the treatment. Normally, these side effects are not niggling, but in case they bother you for long then you must seek medical help. There is no drug available that is spared of side effects, but it is the benefits that normally conquer these short-lived side-effects. Nowadays, getting xanax valium and other benzodiazepine is no longer a tough job even if they are not prescribed to you. However, for your own safety, you must get a prescription from qualified doctor and must be able to differentiate between the fake and real medicines. Thus, it is safer to buy xanax valium from authentic online pharmacies. While concluding, a word on effectiveness and popularity of xanax valium that has led to a strange idea and issue of taking both the drugs together. Seems quite effective! But DO NOT try it. It can be extremely dangerous for you, especially if uptake of duo is combined with alcohol. Don't play with your life in order to get rid of depression. It may get you rid of your life altogether.
