Product Description

Diazepam is used for the management of anxiety disorders or for the short-term relief of symptoms of anxiety. Diazepam may also be used to relieve agitation, shakiness, and hallucinations during alcohol withdrawal and relieve certain types of muscle spasms. It may also be used to treat seizures, insomnia, and other conditions as determined by your doctor.

 

Diazepam may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

 

Diazepam usually comes in extended-release capsules or liquid form. Occasionally, a hospitalized patient may receive an intravenous dose of the drug. Dosing amounts depend on the age and condition of a patient, but most adults are instructed to take 10 milligrams of diazepam two to four times a day. The most common side effects are drowsiness and dizziness, though a person may also experience mental confusion, vision changes, nausea, and loss of appetite. Allergic reactions, seizures, and heart palpitations are rare but possible, and should be assessed in the emergency room as soon as possible.

 

How does it work?

 

Diazepam is a type of medicine called a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines are used for their sedative, anxiety-relieving and muscle-relaxing effects.

 

Diazepam works by acting on receptors in the brain called GABA receptors. This causes the release of a neurotransmitter called GABA in the brain.

 

Neurotransmitters are chemicals that are stored in nerve cells in the brain and nervous system. They are involved in transmitting messages between the nerve cells. GABA is a neurotransmitter that acts as a natural 'nerve-calming' agent. It helps keep the nerve activity in the brain in balance, and is involved in inducing sleepiness, reducing anxiety and relaxing muscles.

 

As Diazepam increases the activity of GABA in the brain, it increases its calming effect and results in sleepiness, a decrease in anxiety and relaxation of muscles.

 

Diazepam has several uses. Firstly, it can be used to calm severe anxiety and agitation. For example, benzodiazepines such as Diazepam are effective at quickly reducing the symptoms of anxiety and agitation that occur in a manic episode of the psychiatric illness, bipolar affective disorder. A benzodiazepine may be given as part of the initial treatment of a manic episode, though they are not licensed specifically for this purpose. Benzodiazepines help calm the individual while the main medicines for this condition (mood stabilizers) begin to take effect.

 

Oral forms of diazepam are also used for short-term treatment of severe anxiety associated with insomnia, as well as for night terrors and sleep-walking in children. Diazepamdecreases the time taken to fall asleep and nocturnal awakenings, as well as increasing the total amount of time spent sleeping. However, it is only suitable for short-term treatment of insomnia and anxiety as it has a high potential for dependence and addiction. As diazepam remains active in the body for many hours, drowsiness may also last into the next day.

 

The second main use of Diazepam is in controlling convulsions, for example associated with poisoning, or seizures associated with fever in children (febrile convulsions). It is particularly useful for controlling repeated epileptic fits when a patient does not recover consciousness between fits. Diazepam helps control convulsions because the increased activity of GABA that it causes in the brain helps to calm excessive electrical nerve activity that is responsible for causing seizures.

 

A further use of Diazepam is in controlling muscle spasms due to tetanus or poisoning.

 

Diazepam may be given as tablets, syrup, injection or rectal solution (enema), depending on what condition is being treated and how fast a response is needed.

Important information know about diazepam

 

You should not use this medication if you are allergic to Diazepam, or if you have myasthenia gravis, severe liver disease, narrow-angle glaucoma, a severe breathing problem, or sleep apnea. This medication can cause birth defects in an unborn baby. Do not use Diazepam if you are pregnant.

 

DOSING:

 

 Diazepam may be taken with or without food. Diazepam is metabolized by the liver and excreted mainly by the kidney. Dosages of diazepam may need to be lowered in patients with abnormal kidney function.

 

 DIAZEPAM SIDE EFFECTS:

 

The most frequent side effects of diazepam are drowsiness, fatigue, and ataxia (loss of

 

Balance). Rarely, diazepam causes a paradoxical reaction with excitability, muscle spasm, lack

 

Of sleep, and rage. Confusion, depression, speech problems, and double vision are also rare

 

Diazepam can lead to addiction (dependency), especially when higher dosages are used over prolonged periods of time. In patients addicted to Diazepam or after prolonged use, abrupt discontinuation of the medicine may cause symptoms of withdrawal (insomnia, headaches, nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness, sweating, anxiety, and fatigue). Seizures can occur in more severe cases of withdrawal. Therefore, after extended use, diazepam should be slowly tapered under a doctor's supervision rather than abruptly stopping the medication.

  1. almost exactly the s

    Posted by Serizawa on 11th Aug 2015

    almost exactly the same thngis you just said, only you put it better than I did. (My arguments against affirmative action are in point #2, if you are curious about it.) So it's a bit unexpected for me to suddenly find myself on the opposite side of this same argument. But I've thought about this a lot since then, and I guess I've come to realize that thngis are not as simple as I used to believe.Девочки ли, мальчики были на первых ролях в классе или кружке -- никто никогда не обращал на это ни малейшего внимания, ни в отрицательном смысле, ни в положительном. Совпадение ли, что девочек на первых ролях было при этом очень много?That sounds wonderful! So where did all these girls who were great at mathematics in school disappear to? Why are so many fewer women than men going into pure math, when there were so many girls in leading roles in math in school? I have a friend who is a math teacher in a private high school, who says the same thing - that a lot of his strongest students are girls, and not boys. So where do they all go? Why do they not go on to math, or physics, or computer science?More than half the students in the very math-intensive biostatistics classes that I take are women, and they are certainly not weaker than the men. So why are so many more women going into applied math than pure math?I have seen women graduate students say that they left mathematics because they didn't feel welcome in the all-male department - they were looked down on, disrespected, didn't feel like anybody was willing to listen to any problems they might be having that were different from the men's problems. It's easy to just dismiss those women as people who just couldn't cut it, but when those same women then go on to do fine in other math-related fields, I feel like that's a sign that there might be some kind of problem that should be addressed.The thing is, women *are* different from men. They might have different problems that the men in the majority might not have. If we insist that people not pay attention to our gender at all - if we pretend that women are just like men - then this is giving the people in the majority carte blanche not to have to worry about those problems. (Want a room where you can use a breast pump during the day without being disturbed? Well, now you are just being unreasonable! None of the *other* people in the department have this problem, so you must be imagining it! etc, etc.) And I think that this approach can be very harmful, and can result in the department losing people that might otherwise have been a great asset to the department.Affirmative action is almost certainly not the best way to solve this problem, but I feel like this *is* a large problem that should be addressed, and not just ignored and swept under the carpet. And it seems to me that a meeting specifically set up in such a way that women speakers can talk about the work that they do, with a panel that includes talking about issues women might face working in mostly-male math departments, could go a long way in making it clear that women *are* welcome in math, that people *do* care about their problems. And such a meeting could even help in beginning to figure out how to *solve* these problems.I'm sorry, I'm shutting up now. Sorry this comment is so long!


  2. Ativan is highly adi

    Posted by Ivanov on 11th Aug 2015

    Ativan is highly aditicdve, and coming down from it can give headaches. There is a lot of controversy with the drug. Half life is anywhere from 10 to 24 hours. And it hasn't been shown to be effective against depression either. Recent studies show it is used more in hospitals before, during and after procedures so you kind-of lose memory of the surgery even dental. Many have been changed over to diazepam because of the weird effects of Ativan. I would check with your doctor, also check WebMD for the drug and all its info. It has been used successfully for those with seizures. I would discuss this drug and why you need this one with your doctor. Alcohol is a no-no and if you have sleep apnea it can make it worse. I would have sleep apnea ruled out before I would take it myself. Police have known for years that this drug affects driving to the point you can be impaired and not realize it, so even driving is out. It also has been implicated in rape/drug cases with alcohol, so be very very careful. People have done strange things on this. There are a few dozen generic brands of this drug and doctors give it out and don't realize they need to really inform the patient of the benefits and the bad stuff it does too.Please talk to your doctor, your headache just might be that, a bad headache from another cause, but discuss this drug as it is so aditicdve, changing doses can be a downer too.Check various websites on drugs and read all you can about it.
