Side Effects Of Diazepam 5 Mg
Dependence: A nice word for addiction.That is too much of this drug for nightly use.
Increase of sedation: Cetirizine is a sedating antihistamine and when added to diazepam/valium (a hypnotic) can compound the effect of sedation. If just 2-3x the usual dose may not cause much more than prolonged sedation, but if excessive od of diazepam and cause respiratory depression/low oxygen which may trigger hypoxic injury to your brain/heart. Be carefull, be safe, take meds only as given. Consult doc. Good luck.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 2 more doctor answers
Perioral dermatitis/saw gp who prescribed doxycycline. Scared of getting side effects. I get panic anxiety & take diazepam when need. Ok with doxy?
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.
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.
It's been 8 days since I took a 10mg diazepam. Does it have any additive effects to alcohol anymore? Can I drink (in moderation) now?
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.See 1 more doctor answer

2 mg of diazepam: Diazepam and medazepam are equipotent. 5 mg of diazepam equals 5 mg of medazepam. Their half-lives, especially of their active metabolites are equally as long. Best wishes.
Hi. I've used diazepam 10mg now for 2.5 weeks. Some days everyday 10 mg (atonce), other days 20 mg, some days inbetween none. Can or will I have wd smpt?
Valium WD: Not now: You have not been on valium long enough to develop any tolerance to it. If you were to stop it now I would not expect you to have any withdrawal whatsoever. If on the other hand you would stay on it for six weeks to two months then you would start experiencing at least some withdrawal and after three months withdrawal could become rather significant and it would have to be tapered down very gradually under the supervision of a physician.
No: Diazepam is stronger and its effect lasts longer.
Better not to take: Diazepam has rapid onset of action, but it has a very long half life, from 1-3 days. Diazepam at a dosage of 5mg. Can cause significant problems with alertness and motor functioning, eg. Driving a motor vehicle. Taking a sleep medication, 5 hrs after taking diazepam, may lead to significant CNS depression and problems with coordination and balance. So, taking a sleep medication is not recommended.See 1 more doctor answer
