Reviews for Diazepam

Anonymous December 22, 2011

Valium (diazepam): “Wonder drug, stops seizures, stops things that can bring on a seizure, stops pain after seizures, stops bad side effects of my other anti-seizure medicines. I could not take any other seizure medicines but Valium helped. Not enough sleep can cause a seizure and Valium helps me sleep.”

Valium (diazepam): “I used to have focal onset seizures which came on very suddenly, and they would appear as panic attacks. My right leg would jump and jerk and so would my arm and fingers as I stood in a lineup anywhere, and these seizures would come on completely at random. They would happen at fast food outlets, or banks, or restaurants. They were more of a nuisance than anything drastic. I had a sudden attack in my vehicle whilst I was driving, and that was the last straw. I finally saw my GP, who prescribed me Valium for focal seizure control and anxiety control. I turned out to be amazing for both, and I'm feeling better than I've ever felt before! Valium does make you feel sleepy, and should never be mixed with alcohol though. Just exercise caution, and always use as directed.”

“I am 34 and have suffered from severe anxiety. To the point that I fear leaving home. In 2010, I started having seizures in my sleep. I have done everything every doctor has asked and nothing works other than diazepam and/or clonazepam. Yet, I am repeatedly refused prescriptions of either. I swear by it as I have no control considering we all need sleep. I am seizure and anxiety free with medication.”

Purdy get (my cat) · Taken for 2 to 5 years September 4, 2020

Valium (diazepam): “We have a cat that has seizures during the night usually early morning. After talking to my vet and doing research we tried giving the valium. No more seizures during the last @ five years so due to running out of med we reduced med and he had 2 seizures this week. Going to try and get more med at vet. IT WORKS!!”

“I'm a recent college graduate, who was stricken with 2 grand mal seizures a month for over a year. They were so bad, that I racked up over 30k worth of medical bills. After all this, I went and talked to a bunch of neurologists. Many were garbage, and dictated treatment terms to me. I read a little bit, went to a bunch of doctors, and decided on my own course of action. I'm a male, 6 feet tall, and 150lbs. I started out on 20mg of Valium, and bumped up to 40mg; over the period of a year. It stopped my seizures cold, and didn't give me any side effects. It is, in my opinion, a miracle. ”

“I was in the ER due to a series of seizures occurring once every 1-5 minutes. Within a few minutes, my cluster of seizures were no more. Long term, I couldn't give you an answer as this was only used during an emergency.”

“I have had a seizure disorder since early childhood. I find diazepam with Keppra helps control my tonic clonic seizures.”

Diastat AcuDial (diazepam): “It works well to stop seizures when they come in clusters or they are long lasting. My 14 year old daughter uses it and its the only thing that helps when she's having a rough day.”
