Diazapam is a common misspelling of diazepam (diazepam).

What is diazepam (diazapam)?

Diazepam (diazapam) belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. It works by slowing down the movement of chemicals in the brain. This results in a reduction in nervous tension (anxiety) and muscle spasm, and also causes sedation.

Diazepam (diazapam) is used in the treatment of anxiety disorders and for short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety.

Diazepam (diazapam) is also used to relieve the symptoms of acute alcohol withdrawal, to relax muscles, to relieve the uncontrolled muscle movements caused by cerebral palsy and paralysis of the lower body and limbs, to control involuntary movement of the hands (athetosis), to relax tight, aching muscles, and, along with other medications, to treat convulsive disorders such as epilepsy.
