What Is Valium?

Valium, also known as Diazepam, has been primarily used to relieve moderate to severe pain. In addition, it can be used to manage and treat short-term anxiety disorders, seizures and skeletal muscle spasms. When properly supervised by a physician, Valium has the power to control agitation caused by alcohol withdrawal. Individuals prone to addiction are in need of careful monitoring when receiving the drug.

The Dangers and Symptoms of Valium Abuse

Valium addiction is a serious and potentially life-threatening problem. Evidence suggests that Valium abusers may also be addicted to other drugs and use Valium to enhance the “high” or diminish the adverse effects derived from those other medications. The chemicals in Valium can accumulate among the elderly and individuals suffering from kidney and liver problems and result in additional health problems. Taking the drug during pregnancy is not recommended and may cause severe damage to an unborn baby.

That’s when the user constantly feels the need to increase the dosage to experience the same “high.” The side effects of Valium abuse can be exacerbated by consumption of alcohol and my result in a potentially fatal overdose.
