I am taking 2mg diazepam as needed for anxiety. I can take up to three a day. I have noticed that my vision has been blurry and I am not sure if it is from the diazepam. I also wear contacts and have dry eyes so I'm not sure if that makes it worse.
I suggest you give your doctor a call before the weekend and get an answer with regards to your side effects as they are considered uncommon.
