What could be the side effects of a small cetirizine and diazepam overdose?

Increase of sedation: Cetirizine is a sedating antihistamine and when added to diazepam/valium (a hypnotic) can compound the effect of sedation.

My doctors prescribed me diazepam for anxiety, but im wary as I heard about addiction and side effects, ?

Addiction is common: "anxiety medications" are becoming overprescribed for anxiety. They can be addictive in the traditional sense but also they can become an emotional crutch as well. Many people eventually feel they 'need' medication to overcome normal feelings of anxiety. ...Read more

I was on Prozac (fluoxetine) and diazepam but getting all the side effects of Prozac (fluoxetine) so decided to not take it, stayed on diazepam, panic/dizzy getting worse.

Combined issues: Your original symptoms could be recurring, now that you've stopped prozac (fluoxetine). Also although it's a long-acting medication and has some self-tapering properties because of that, Prozac (fluoxetine) can still cause discontinuation symptoms in some people. Third, i don't know how much diazepam you're taking, but it can cause dizziness too. Please contact your doctor & let him/her help you with this. ...Read more

Which of these has nightmares as a side effect? Oxycodone, percocet, celecoxib, or diazepam(valium)?

Which of these has nightmares as a side effect? Oxycodone, percocet, celecoxib, or diazepam(valium)?

Hard to Say: Side effects of most medications are turning out to be highly individualistic and sometimes based upon genetic susceptibility! this is fairly new research. But, it suggests that any specific side effect is not necessarily going to happen to you. That said, with the exception of celecoxib, these drugs are narcotics and/or sedative/hypnotics and can cause "dysphoric" feelings and hallucinations. ...Read more

Been prescriebed piracetam.Do it have an interaction with diazepam ? Does it reduce diazepam's effects or does it have interactions with it ?

Been prescriebed piracetam.Do it have an interaction with diazepam ? Does it reduce diazepam's effects or does it have interactions with it ?

DrugDrug Interaction: Piracetam is not an fda approved medication in the states and thus i could not find it in my usual spot: www.Drugs.Com. It's always best to tell your doc everything you're taking, whether prescription or over-the-counter. Also include dietary supplements. Be sure to list everything, including flagyl, Levofloxacin ; clonazepam. We don't recommend taking both Clonazepam ; diazepam together. ...Read more

What are the effects of diazepam (valium) and clonazepam on flaccid penis and erections?

What are the effects of diazepam (valium) and clonazepam on flaccid penis and erections?

They don't help: Neither diazepam nor Clonazepam will help erectile dysfunction. There are also reports of sexual dysfunction with all benzodiazepines. Though not well understood, the mechanism of these problems could be via gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors in the midbrain central gray or ventral tegmental area. However, this is mixed with issues stemming from anxiety itself. Hoping you work w/urologist too. ...Read more

Any advice on how to safely stop taking diazepam?

Gradual taper: Depends upon how much you are taking and how long you have been on it, but decreasing your dose by 2-5 mg every 3-5 days is a reasonable goal. Diazepam has a very long half life which is the time it takes to get half of it out of your system. Diazepam itself has a half life of 3-4 days and the active metabolite has a half life of over a week which means that some of it will be in your body a month ...Read more
