Hi! I have insomnia and my doctor prescribe me with diazepam. I just want to know if there are any interactions to that?
Hi lim19. Well not completely clear on your question. What other medications are you taking that will be interacting with diazepam? Do you mean how the drug works? Its a benzodiazepine, that say you took a 5mg pill, that would usually last you close to 24 hours. I'd say the average dose is somewhere between 5 to 25mg per day. Once entering your body you'll find that it works very fast. I was on it many years ago. It did work wonders for my anxiety.But, it can become addictive. Only because you find that before you know it, a anxious moment might arise and you find yourself reaching for another pill. You need to becarefull, as with all benzodiazepine medications.best to you.

I take valium and serepax daily. I have been on these meds for atleast 5 years and believe it or not they still do the job as i have mental anxiety attacks. Some days i wont take any but the next day i will take twice as many and i get both scripts refilled every 25 days. My doctor isnt happy about it but benzos are extremely addictive so he just cant stop prescribing them to me. I have sort of lost the point to your question, they also make you lose concentration and my memory is shot. What was the question??? Listen Lim, try and not take diazepam, there are other insomnia meds that arent as addictive. Good luck buddy. Skins 1970
