In brief: Diazepam withdrawal

In order to avoid serious physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, the dosage of diazepam must be reduced slowly.
The best thing to do is to work with experienced physicians or be referred to a detox center. Many medications are contraindicated and the use of other sedatives may or may not help. Antidepressants, anti-epileptics, or beta blockers can be used. Magnesium supplements may help.

Diazepam, is a benzodiazepine like alprazolam, clonazepam, tranzene, lorazepam. All can have withdrawal symptoms identical to alcohol withdrawal. Be honest with your prescriber if you are taking for than prescribed.
