ValiumValium is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines.  The generic name for this drug is Diazepam.  It is commonly used for treating anxiety, insomnia, and alcohol withdrawal, but is also used for patients before having medical procedures done, as the drug relaxes and calms the patient.  Valium is also used for patients who suffer from panic attacks.

Street names for Valium include candy, downers, sleeping pills, and tranks.  This drug was widely prescribed in the 1960’s and 1970’s before its potential for abuse and addiction were well known.  It is often prescribed to people withdrawing from Xanax addiction.  The problem with long term use of this drug is that individuals build up a tolerance for it, and once the dosage has been increased, it won’t be long before it needs to be increased again.  This is how individuals become addicted.

Valium Effects and Risks

Valium intoxication symptoms include confusion, diminished reflexes, sleepiness, coma, and even death.  There are many Valium side effects from use as well as from immediate withdrawal from its use.

If an individual stops without tapering off they may have the following symptoms:

  • Psychosis
  • Insomnia
  • Sweating
  • High blood pressure
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting
  • Irritability
