I have just taken two 10mg blue diazepam for bad anxiety. They were not prescribed to me. They had C DC printed on one side. I have searched the internet for 2 hours with no results and now I am worried. Could any body tell me if these are real or fake please?
Diazepam 10mg tablets with a C DC print? Are they real or fake?

Sorry they where round blue tablets. In Actavis packets. Could they be fake in such official looking wrapper? I am just worried now!
In the United Kingdom, you are VERY unlikely to have legitimate diazepam 10mg tablets if a friend just gives you them simply as general practice (your family doctor) very rarely will prescribe doses of diazepam above and beyond 5mg (again, which is not stocked in the UK by Actavis, and there are few 10mg tablets prescribed on the NHS in chemists - you can browse medications which are via https://services.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/dmd-browser). You will find not only did Actavis stop producing 10mg diazepam tablets a long while ago, but the way in which replicas are produced is also by using brand names such as well-known pharmaceutical companies and replicating the medication with known similarities - the well-known blue color, size, markings etc.
Now diazepam isn't blue, yellow, etc it is a white substance, and many factories around the world are dedicated to replicating the precise aspects of the drug. These are then sold with either over-, under-, mis- or non-dosed quantities of the drug within them. They (currently in the UK) typically contain bromazolam which is a chemical analogue (a modified molecule similar to the original) that has different half-lives (how long it takes to be eliminated from the body) and LD50's which is the dose in 50% of the population in which death occurs, as well as many other pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties or they contain a dose of the substance in question but not what you are being lead to believe the dose is.
Have a look at https://www.wedinos.org/sample-results and see the disparity between street/dark web/illicit substances people 'think' they are buying versus what it actually contains.

Hi, yes c dc is printed on some diazepam
Activis don't even make diazepam anymore so any that are around are fake and most likely contain Etizolam or other RC benzo chemicals that are not tested on humans but people take anyway who knows the long term effects of these fakes.
The Activis are all fakes now and most contain Etizolam, Flubromazolam or a combination of RC chemicals or absolutely nothing at all.
The only real way to know that you are getting the right drug is to go to your doctor and it is super hard I suffer from acrophobia and I fine it debilitating to leave the house and I hardly ever do it. Doctor tried me on Diazepam and it worked wonders I could leave the house for the first time in ages only problem is he would only prescribe 10 2mg tablets and I really feel like I need this medication. I have been trying to source it from other places but obviously I would rather my doctor understood my situation.
But if you do get grey market drugs you can get them tested at wedinos.org which I am going to send some away to see exactly what is in these activis diazepam.
I didn't see this reply before I submitted my own, however, you are correct - general practice are very reluctant to prescribe Diazepam and anything over and above 5mg TDS, as there is a push for them to medicate with Pregabalin (I won't even go into my views on this) and wrap-around psychological treatments which come with a decade long waiting list.
They don't wish to prescribe benzodiazepines because of the great potential for addiction and abuse. Only the opiate crisis exceeds that of the benzos.
Having worked in substance abuse treatment centres, I assure you, both the physiological and psychological properties of abuse and dependency of all GABAgenic medications are very much the same regardless of mechanism of action. Pregabalin, based on studies showing improved GAD-9 scores, was demonstrated to be a better choice and as NICE operates on evidence based practice, hence people end up on 600mg a day until that isn’t enough, just the same as benzodiazepines.
Having worked in two rehabilitation facilities, I can assure you...
They're fake. I've just bought the same. I ended up taking an apparent dose of 130mg as I kept taking more because they weren't working. Now the whole packet is gone and still no effect. Tonnes of these pants 'diazepam' going around.
Buyer beware! Never take any medications that were not prescribed by a licensed doctor and filled at a pharmacy.
Someone must be pretty savvy to duplicate the imprint and packaging!
They replicate the packaging and inner sleeve wonderfully. But the blister pack is flimsy and a give away, as well as the pills not having any effect. Fake Actavis diazepam are all over the UK.
Pill imprint C DC is Diazepam 10 mgs. by Actavis UK Pharmaceuticals.
Do not self medicate, nor take anything anybody gives you, it could be out of good will but EVERYONE reacts to medications in a different way, plus benzodiazepines are not to messed with,
unless a Psychiatrist prescribes them.
Thanks for the advice so your shore they are diazepam? That will put me at peace tonight. yes i have tonight but will speak to my doctor before taking more. He has prescribed me diazepam before and it helps with what im suffering for. I wont be taking any more unitl after speaking to my doctor. Thank you for your advice
You are welcome. They are what I said.
For more peace of mind.
Diazepam 10mg: Blue, circular, flat, bevelled-edge uncoated tablets, impressed “C” and the
identifying letters “DC” either side of a central division line on one face.
Good job, my friend!
Many thanks, my friend!
Activas was bought out by Camber.
Hi, can you tell us the color and shape of the tablets? Are there any other markings on them?
