Is it ok to use Valium for a child (vcug) procedure?

Is it ok to use Valium for a child (vcug) procedure?

If dosed correctly: Valium itself is not used frequently for such procedures, but it can be. Such drugs are safe in the hands of a trained physician giving a weight based dose. It is possible that they are giving another drug similar to valium, since the effects of Valium are long, and a VCUG usually doesn't require that long a period of sedation. ...Read more

Valium (Definition)

Valium (diazepam) is an older benzodiazepine tranquilizer. It was the #1 prescribed drug (of any kind) in the us in the late 1960s but is used less now due to drug interactions and active metabolites. It is still used for anxiety and as "pre-medication" for uncomfortable medical and minor surgical procedures. It is habit-forming, should not be used with alcohol, ...Read more

How does alternative fertilization actually work? And do sperm and eggs always have to be involved to make babies?

No sperm, no egg: No sperm, no egg, no human possible. In vitro fertilization creates embryos that are created from the mixing of human eggs and sperm outside of the body.

Valium & pregnancy: If this woman has actually taken 30 valium 10mg tablets, she has overdosed and needs to go to an er for medical attention now. She and her baby could be in danger.

Why do we keep having girl babies? Does my husband have more female sperm then male sperm? Lol. I'm pregnant with our 3rd daughter!

No, he has 1 X ; 1 Y: Trust me, it's not a bad thing to have 3 daughters or 3 grandsons. I hope your 3rd is a healthy baby. As a member of the vanguard of feminists, I reared my girls to believe they could go anywhere ; do anything. Boy, do they! In the middle east, africa, russia, south america ; any other place they can think of that scares the tar out of me. Empower your girls ; be ready to support their choices. ...Read more

Will it harm a unborn child, if the mother is taken Valium 10mg every day?

Possibly: Diazepam is listed as a category d drug by the fda due to demonstrated risks for the baby. Neonatal withdrawal syndrome, low activity level, low body temperature and poor feeding are commonly seen. There is some chance of fetal malformation suggested. Smaller doses given episodically and tapering off near the time of delivery may avoid the listed problems. ...Read more

Why can't you have caffeine before root canal or is it because they gave me valium? How long after can you have caffeine?

Counteraction: Usually valium is prescribed for patients that are anxious. It has a depressive action on the central nervous system. The goal of the medication is to relax and calm a patient prior to treatment. Caffeine has an opposite action and stimulates the central nervous system. This will excite you and can make you more anxious. So you would not want to take both of these medications at the same time! ...Read more

Do I need to be careful with taking seroquel (quetiapine) and valium. I really don't want my meds to ever mix wrong and I get hurt?

Do I need to be careful with taking seroquel (quetiapine) and valium. I really don't want my meds to ever mix wrong and I get hurt?

Safe but sleepy: He two drugs each are known to cause dizziness and drowsiness. Just be aware that the effects may be intensified when using the two together, especially the first time. This first time, it will be best if you do not plan to drive or use heavy machinery any time soon - sometime in the evening when it is safe to gauge your response. The effects may become more mild over time as you get used to them ...Read more

First I eated 1 2mg Rohypnol to sleep. I can't get them. So now I eat 5 10mg Valium to sleep. My question: what sleep pills is strong as rohypnol?

First I eated 1 2mg Rohypnol to sleep. I can't get them. So now I eat 5 10mg Valium to sleep. My question: what sleep pills is strong as rohypnol?

Oh be careful!!!: Rohypnol is illegal here. I'm uncertain, but are you saying you take "5 10mg valium to sleep" this would mean you take 50mg of valium at once. Dangerous level. Or did you mean either 5 or 10 mg of valium at night. If you take amphetamine, as you state, you will have trouble with insomnia. Recommend discontinuation of upper, and 5-10mg of ambien (zolpidem). But you need to be under doctor's supervision. ...Read more

My cpn is unsure what the psychiatrist will do for me as I can't take ad's for anxiety I have been on Valium for 10 years I wonder if its made it worse?

My cpn is unsure what the psychiatrist will do for me as I can't take ad's for anxiety I have been on Valium for 10 years I wonder if its made it worse?

Anxiety can worsen: Anxiety can worsen with time. If the anxiety has not been eradicated through therapy or the roots of the problem remain untouched, most likely medications by itself would not solve all issues. Benzodiazepines (valium, xanax, (alprazolam) klonopin) create tolerance and it is possible that you need more of them along life. Combination of ssri, anxiolytics and psychotherapy are the treatment gold standard. ...Read more

How come librium doesn't work like valium?

How come librium doesn't work like valium?

A little different: It depends on the effect you're looking for. Librium and valium are both fairly long-acting benzodiazepines, but valium may be a little more potent as an anxiolytic. Valium may also be more lipid soluble, getting into the brain more quickly than librium. Librium's effect may be delayed also because the parent compound is less potent than its metabolites. ...Read more
