Valium helps to recover from:
- anxiety attacks,
- problems with sleep,
- epilepsy and other diseases.
Abuse of this drug can be quite dangerous because it can provoke:
- violation of clarity of consciousness,
- pressure reduction,
- problems with reflexes,
Despite the fact that most of the side effects are not that dangerous, the patient should always comply with the dosage of the drug. This helps to protect from unreasonable risk. In history, cases are known when patients entered a coma in a critical overdose with a colossal amount of the drug. After two days, the patient’s condition returned to normal, but there is one more nuance: Valium is strictly forbidden to be taken with alcohol and opiates because in this case, the severity of side effects will be much higher.
The use of this drug is strictly oral. You can take pills at any time of the day, no matter when you are eating. A plentiful drink for a more comfortable use is allowed. The treatment period is calculated individually: since Valium is a potent enough drug, it is worthwhile to contact a specialist to prescribe a dose. Especially it concerns those cases when the disease is out-of-order.
The drug can be used as an anxiolytic. Then its dose does not exceed 10 mg and it can be taken 2 to 4 times a day. The minimum dose is 2.5 mg.
Depending on the level of severity of mental and nervous disorders, as well as on a specific diagnosis, the dose may be decreased or increased.
Two or three times a day in an increased dosage of 5-10 mg, this drug can be taken with:
- phobias, etc.
If the case is particularly severe, the dose may be increased to the maximum. The maximum allowable daily dose of the drug is 60 mg.
Another common cause of taking Valium is withdrawal syndrome. In this case, the reception can be divided into three or four servings per day. The active phase of the intake requires taking 10 mg of the drug. After the first day, the dose can be reduced to 5 mg.
If the patient suffers from atherosclerosis or other diseases, the dose should be lowered to 2 mg maximum twice a day. If the body shows a positive reaction to the drug, you can increase the dosage, but you need to do this gradually.
If you take the drug while you are at work, then one of the receptions should be appointed at lunchtime. Tip: divide the daily dose into 5 mg for two doses of the drug. In the evening, you can take another 5 mg of medication.
Spastic conditions require active treatment: take up to 10 mg of medication twice a day minimum.
Diazepam is used in the treatment of diseases of the field of cardiology and rheumatology. A dose of up to 5 mg can be taken 2-3 times a day. Vertebral syndrome requires treatment during bed rest. In this case, the dosage can be increased to a maximum of 10 mg.
A common reason for taking the drug is the preventive therapy of myocardial infarction. The standard dose is then up to 10 mg three times a day.
In no case, it’s advisable to violate the maximum dosage of the drug: 60 mg of the drug is a critical amount for the body (per day).
Pediatricians use Diazepam for reactive and psychosomatic disorders. For patients younger than 3 years, the dosage should be calculated strictly individually, and for patients older than 3 years, the maximum allowable dose is 2.5 mg. Monitoring of the patient’s condition is mandatory. Dosage can be increased if the body reacts positively.
