Product Description


Diazepam is mainly used to treat anxiety, insomnia, and symptoms of acute alcohol withdrawal. It is also used as a premedication for inducing sedation, anxiolysis or amnesia before certain medical procedures (e.g., endoscopy).

Intravenous diazepam or lorazepam are first line treatments for status epilepticus; However, lorazepam has advantages over diazepam including a higher rate of terminating seizures and a more prolonged anticonvulsant effect. Diazepam is rarely used for the long-term treatment of epilepsy because tolerance to the anticonvulsant effects of diazepam usually develops within 6 to 12 months of treatment, effectively rendering it useless for this purpose. Diazepam is used for the emergency treatment of eclampsia, when IV magnesium sulfate and blood pressure control measures have failed. However, benzodiazepines such as diazepam can be used for their muscle relaxant properties to alleviate pain which is caused by muscle spasms, caused by various dystonias, including blepharospasm Tolerance often develops to the muscle relaxant effects of benzodiazepines such as diazepam. Baclofen or tizanidine is sometimes used as an alternative to diazepam. Tizanidine has been found to be equally effective as other antispasmodic drugs and have superior tolerability than baclofen and diazepam. Benzodiazepines do not have any pain relieving properties of themselves and are generally recommended to be avoided in individuals with pain.

The anticonvulsant effects of diazepam, can help in the treatment of seizures, due to a drug overdose or chemical toxicity as a result of exposure to sarin, VX, soman (or other organophosphate poisons; See #CANA), lindane, chloroquine, physostigmine, or pyrethroids Diazepam is sometimes used intermitently for the prophylaxis of febrile seizures which occur as a result of a high fever in children and neonates under 5 years of age. Long-term use of diazepam for the management of epilepsy is not recommended; however, a subgroup individuals with treatment resistant epilepsy benefit from long-term benzodiazepines and for such individuals clorazepate has been recommended due to its slower onset of tolerance to the anticonvulsant effects.

Diazepam has a broad spectrum of indications (most of which are off-label), including:

  • Treatment of anxiety, panic attacks, and states of agitation
  • Treatment of neurovegetative symptoms associated with vertigo
  • Treatment of the symptoms of alcohol, opiate and benzodiazepine withdrawal
  • Short-term treatment of insomnia
  • Treatment of tetanus, together with other measures of intensive-treatment
  • Adjunctive treatment of spastic muscular paresis (para-/tetraplegia) caused by cerebral or spinal cord conditions such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury (long-term treatment is coupled with other rehabilitative measures)
  • Palliative treatment of stiff person syndrome
  • Pre-/postoperative sedation, anxiolysis and/or amnesia (e.g., before endoscopic or surgical procedures)
  • Treatment of complications with hallucinogens, such as LSD or overdose of CNS stimulants, such as cocaine, or methamphetamine.
  • Prophylactic treatment of oxygen toxicity during hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Veterinary uses:

  • Diazepam is used as a short-term sedative and anxiolytic for cats and dogs. It is also used for short-term treatment of seizures in dogs and short-term and long-term treatment of seizures in cats. It can also be used as an appetite stimulant. For emergent treatment of seizures, the typical dose is 0.5 mg/kg intravenously, or 1–2 mg/kg of the injectable solution administered in the rectum.

Before judicial executions:

  • The State of California offers diazepam to condemned inmates as a pre-execution sedative as part of their Lethal Injection program.


Dosages should be determined on an individual basis, depending upon the condition to be treated, the severity of symptoms, the body weight of the patient, and any comorbid conditions the patient may have.

Typical dosages for healthy adults range from 2 mg per dose to 10 mg per dose taken 2 to 4 times per day, depending on such factors as body weight and condition being treated. For the elderly or people with liver disorders, initial dose is at the low end of the range, with the dose being increased as required.

  1. One of the panelists

    Posted by Swati on 11th Aug 2015

    One of the panelists told us that she rejceted her first offer because she would be the first woman in that department, and she had suspected that they were interested not in her personally but jut in hiring a woman to improve their statistics.I can't quite tell agreeing with me or disagreeing with me with this example, but I agree with you that this can be a disturbing trend, too, and can make it that much harder for math departments to hire women. I admit that I was thinking more in terms of female graduate students who might decide to leave mathematics to pursue other things because they were unhappy with not having a lot of other women in the department, though. I've heard several stories like this, and it's easy to dismiss graduate students leaving as them just not being able to make it in the department, but if women *are* being scared off by things that have nothing to do with their ability level, and if a meeting like this can keep them from leaving, then I don't see why it's such a terrible thing to have such meetings.why should it be a mathematical meeting arranged in such a way that all speakers must be women? You could easily have a women's issues panel at a ``normal" meeting.Well, again, from other comments here, it sounds like there are plenty of fields of mathematics where a "normal" meeting would not have enough women for such a panel. You mentioned that this event has become traditional, at the beginning of each semester-long program. Maybe at some point, they tried to organize such a panel at a "normal" meeting, and realized that they couldn't do it.Besides, now that I am thinking more about this, I don't see why you think it's such a horrible idea to have a meeting specifically highlighting women's accomplishments in a field of mathematics, so that younger women who might otherwise have been scared off from a traditionally male-dominated field can see what women specifically have already accomplished. That sounds like it might be a useful thing - more useful in many ways than a "women's issues" panel hidden within a meeting focused on something else.You seem to be thinking about this meeting in terms of affirmative action - like men are being discriminated against by not being allowed to be speakers at this meeting. (And women are being insulted by the implication that they are only being considered as speakers because they are women.) But if the *theme* of the meeting is women's accomplishments in the field, why *shouldn't* all the speakers be women? Do you want them to invite some men to speak about the accomplishments of women they know, when they could be inviting those women themselves?
