Areas of application of the active substance diazepam

Diazepam is used in acute and chronic tension and agitation (nervousness) and anxiety disorders. Diazepam can not be used to treat the root causes of such disorders, but only to alleviate the symptoms. Diazepam is also injected in acute and very severe states of anxiety, excitement, tension and restlessness such as a heart attack.

The use of diazepam in sleep disorders is only justified if at the same time a calming and relaxing effect during the day is desired.

As an injection solution, diazepam is used to prepare for surgery for its soothing and sleep-inducing properties. Similarly, its muscle-relaxing properties are used prior to surgical and diagnostic procedures (for example, endoscopy).

Diazepam is used as an emergency medication to treat a major epileptic seizure and as a preventive measure to prevent grand mal seizures if signs of it are evident. In children, diazepam is a drug of choice for fever cramps. It is usually administered as a rectal solution (via the rectum) in such a case.

Diazepam continues to be used in severe muscle cramps. A special field of application here is tetanus intoxication.

For the following application areas of Diazepam , in-depth information is available:

  • anxiety disorders
  • nervous
  • epilepsies
  • fever
  • sleep

Action of Diazepam

Diazepam belongs to the drug group of benzodiazepines. It binds in the brain to the receptors that specialize in this substance group. This binding enhances the inhibitory effect of the messenger GABA on different associations of nerve nodes. In this way, Diazepam has an effect that reduces tension, excitement and anxiety as well as calming and inducing sleep. In addition, it can reduce the muscle tension and reduce the tendency to epileptic spasms or to interrupt such convulsions. Respiration and circulation are not or only slightly influenced by the usual dosages of diazepam. However, too fast an injection can sometimes lead to respiratory arrest. The action of benzodiazepines, including diazepam, can be reversed by substances that have the opposite effect, such as flumazenil.

Diazepam is absorbed into the body within one hour of ingestion and injection into a muscle. When injected into the vein, the effect begins in the brain after one minute. The liver mainly metabolizes diazepam into the three so-called metabolites nordiazepam, temazepam and oxazepam. Like diazepam, these three can pass through the blood-brain barrier into the brain and through the protective mother cake and can also be found in breast milk.

Nordiazepam, temazepam and oxazepam work longer than diazepam and are responsible for fatigue the next day after diazepam intake. They are also used as independent active ingredients.

Potential Diazepam side effects may include:

Diazepam used to treat the following diseases:

    I’m in the hospital for an emergency doctor because of a lumbago. A syringe did not want to give this great doctor – but Diazepam. A tabelette! That night I got stomach cramps and diarrhea. The whole thing went then 5 days and 5 nights! I have never had such diarrhea in my life! That’s why Diazepam, never again!

    Diazepam for Aggressiveness

    Diazepam for the treatment of restlessness, anxiety disorders and aggressiveness. When taking the drug Diazepam is a good effect. After a longer dose of about 6-9 months, the effect diminishes. An enhancement was observed with administration of additional Tavor 1.0 mg, twice daily. Which also lasts for years. Application can be made in drops and tablet form or depot syringe, who wants to give up the daily intake.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Diazepam for Muscle tenseness

    The long-term medication with gabapentin and Beofenac (the Beofenac should be paused every few months) works well in terms of back pain. Of course, these are not completely gone, you also have bad days when you have the back too much – but with this medication, you can live very well. With 2 recurrent disc herniations after an operation 10 years ago in 2 heights, one should not expect too much. It is logical that one day you will end up back on the operating table, and with a distance of almost 11 years, you can actually be very satisfied. Since I work for several years in a neurosurgical clinic, I can certainly judge quite well. With Arcoxia I have had very bad experiences. I took this medicine irregularly and only in case of very severe pain in the office, so I could work. It has worked reasonably, but not outstanding. After the approx. 20. Ingestion (was after about 5 months, have not taken too often) I already felt on Christmas Eve on the whole body itching and burning on the skin. Suddenly the skin blushed almost completely, as if I had been lying in the sun one day too long. The skin burned so hard it was unbearable. Then joined a circulatory problem, so I had to lie down. After about 1 hour, these unwanted side effects were reasonably tolerated and were completely regressive after the second hour. I had never intended to take Arcoxia again, especially since a friendly pharmacist advised me against it. About 3 weeks ago, when I once again had severe pain in the office, but then had an appointment and was not in the mood for pain, I got myself a drug in the clinic – that was unfortunately Arcoxia 90 mg, the previous adverse effects were I completely forgot because I was in a stress situation. After taking the medicine, it started slowly within half an hour: The whole body began to itch, this time also the tongue was affected. In the esophagus, a pain was noticeable, which could be compared with the strongest heartburn. When I arrived at my girlfriend, I must have looked pretty bad. I had to lie down directly, the circulatory situation became completely unstable, the itching and the redness remained, the tongue finally became numb, the burning in the esophagus developed further and left a feeling there, as if there was a lump there, which squeezes everything to me. This pain was the worst, I was thirsty, but I could not swallow. The whole situation was life-threatening, so I called the clinic. Actually, I should have consulted a doctor, but then decided to wait, because I noticed that the side effects gradually subside. The first half hour was unbearable, a feeling like you were coming to an end – just miserable! After about 1 hour, these side effects finally subsided. I almost jumped in the air, but it took another 2 hours until I felt reasonably well again. My conclusion: EVERYTHING, NEVER NEVER AGAIN ARCOXIAThe most violent drug I have ever taken. I can not say why the side effects suddenly occurred after several irregular ingestions, all I know is that about a year ago a newspaper reported a negative about this drug. It was mainly about the effect on some people who were suicidal by Arcoxia. You should be careful with it in any case, because the side effects are not without

    Diazepam for Pain (acute)

    First I bury all those who are stuck with me in a Bott, I am currently in Romania, but I am a German citizen, therefore this keyboard & gt; :)))) TRAMAL, also known as Tramadol is underestimated to the 90% of Aertzte.Meine medical history ; I got from the Haustzt Tramadol drops 100mg / 10ml N1 and that because of strong migraine, although that does not help at all. The prescription repeated irregularly 1 year.I do not want to capture long, I am dependent for 10 years, with a daily dose of 10-10-10 ml (solution) In the various detoxification I have been told by other patients as compliment, I should be glad be that the addiction has not been in my face, and have a very pretty face to swallow for such a shit. You could have x girlfriends, a well – regarded job, etc. I was all shit Egal.Ich was in a JVA 12 months eingespert u.have not even needed medication. After the dismissal passed 5 hours, then it was again drauf.Ich must report that has not changed in these 12 months, either psychic or No motivation. No hope, because financially I am only dependent on Hart 4.Which girl wants to go with such a type, deep in a relationship.I have tried I do not know what to do, do anything, etc … Unfortunately, I sprayed too much Xylocaine as a local anesthetic, and I could not really catch the Vennen after several tries. You can still live a maximum of 1 hour after that, but comma comes in after 30 min. I have tried long-term therapy, with forced therapy, it just does not work, the motivation is death for me forever, or should I be about kok Well, coke and tramp not fit, coke disintegrates the muscle fibers. My feasts and opinion is: pray in God for a lighter death, because you not only quirit you, but also the others who live around you and mitleiden.Es also a Anstekender mood. Innocent people entrain me find Unfaer, better you mourn briefly to someone, then the cake is eaten I think.Tod forget easy, except your own mother … Give me a gun and me burdened the health insurance no longer, with NAW, RTW (Notartztwagen, ambulance) for seizures Grand Mal. I see the things Obiectiv people, do not make a fake hope, because then enters Tramal treatment has time 14 days to decide whether he wants to give his life or not! From me, it should be classified as BtM, because so sell the pharmacies without a prescription anymore. There are many pharmacists who are fixed on sales. You get said when buying Tramal, please get a recipe at the next time, and at the next time man creeps through … Well people sounds like the Warkheit, I expect no regrets, but as knowledgeable for you. Goodbye, Christian.

    I can not write experience reports on all of these drugs, they all serve their purpose, one less and the other less. It happens that it can lead to constipation. Especially with Zopiclone a long-acting bitter taste in the throat to mundberecht (about 12-17h)

    Diazepam for Anxiety disorders; Sleep disorders

    After decades of mishandling the anxiety and panic disorder that led to long-term disability, I had Diazepam 5mg prescribed for emergencies on my own request. At first I had to dose quite high. Two to three times a week, I took between 5-12.5 mg to calm down. Already half a year later, I was able to sell the additionally prescribed, strongly sedating AD Trimipramine (Stangyl) and shortly thereafter got a half mini job. One year ago, I only needed 2.5-5mg, twice a week, but took an additional 5mg of melatonin every night. For two months I have a second half mini job and currently take 1.25mg or 2.5mg twice a week. The anxiety disorder is almost completely gone by the recognition in the job (and, of course, tariff payment!). Only the lifelong sleep disturbance still bothers me. Therefore I have to take 1.25-2.5mg Diazeam on the nights before the two working days to be well rested, concentrated and efficient to work. Take half an hour before the planned bedtime. If 1.25mg does not work, do not refill three hours later! Side effects: If taken too late, it may cause dizziness and severe sedation the next day. Do not drive for about 10 hours after taking it. Never take it daily or increase the dose. The risk of getting used to is unfortunately high for poorly informed patients. Conclusion: A very good, excellent researched, low-priced drug without serious side effects, which brings the pharmaceutical industry, unfortunately, no more profits.

    Diazepam for Anxiety disorders; Sleep disorders

    I have been suffering from anxiety and anxiety for about 4 years Panic disorders that were not taken seriously by my family doctor. He prescribed me various antidepressants, in which I only had to deal with the side effects. Today I take diazepam 5 mg in the evening and when I realize that they are not working properly anymore, I put them down and take one – two weeks break, then I feel the effect again. Without diazepam I would sometimes not be able to do my everyday life. I consider diazepam, tavor, bromazepam when used responsibly, as an indispensable remedy … even if the spirits divorced … without benzo’s my quality of life would fall drastically.

    Side effects: No side effects
