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

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. 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.

Awful withdrawal symptoms from amitriptyline. Tapered from 75mg - 65mg. First 2 nights, fine. 3rd night - panic, nausea, faint. Can diazepam help?

Awful withdrawal symptoms from amitriptyline. Tapered from 75mg - 65mg. First 2 nights, fine. 3rd night - panic, nausea, faint. Can diazepam help?

Not first recourse: Diazepam (valium) hangs around the system a long time. Exchanging a need for Amitriptyline for a need for valium isn't a great bargain! such a small dosage drop shouldn't cause withdrawal--unless you have a threshhold at 70 mg. What to do depends on why the med and why the taper. But i would have your doc help you do without a benzodiazepine like valium, except short-acting and short-term. ...Read more

Can you vary how many diazepam tablets a day?

Not a good idea: Diazepam is a strong, long-lasting "benzodiazepine" with a significant potential for dependency. There are good reasons for its being prescribed, but needs to be regulated carefully and steadily by a supervising md (who might have reasons for raising or lowering the dose). ...Read more
