It is thought that diazepam works by enhancing the task of particular neurotransmitters in the brain. Valium is occasionally used with other medicines to deal with muscular tissue convulsions and tightness, or seizures. You must not use Valium if you are sensitive to diazepam or comparable medications, or if you have myasthenia gravis, extreme liver disease, narrow-angle glaucoma, a severe breathing trouble, or rest apnea. Diazepam can reduce or quit your breathing, especially if you have lately used an opioid drug or alcohol. If you stop making use of the medication instantly after long-term use, you may have lethal withdrawal symptoms. Some withdrawal symptoms may last up to 12 months or longer. Get clinical aid right away if you stop making use of Valium and have symptoms such as: uncommon muscle mass motions, being more active or talkative, sudden and serious changes in mood or behavior, confusion, hallucinations, seizures, or thoughts about self-destruction. Do not offer this medicine to a child without a doctor's advice. Some people have thoughts about suicide while taking Valium. If you use Valium during pregnancy, your infant could be birthed with dangerous withdrawal symptoms, and might require clinical treatment for several weeks. Diazepam might hurt unborn child, however having a seizure during maternity can damage both mommy and baby. There might be other seizure drugs that are much safer to use while pregnant. You might have increased seizures or dangerous withdrawal symptoms if you stop making use of the medication suddenly after long-lasting use. Take the medicine as soon as you can, but skip the missed out on dose if it is nearly time for your following dosage.
