About diazepam, Are valium safe

Diazepam belongs to a group of medicines called benzodiazepines.

It’s used to treat anxiety, muscle spasms and fits (seizures). It’s also used in hospital to reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms, such as sweating or difficulty sleeping.

It can also be taken to help you relax before an operation or other medical or dental treatments. This is known as a “pre-med”.

Diazepam is available on prescription only.

It comes as tablets, a liquid that you swallow, or in a rectal tube (medicine that’s squeezed into your anus). It can also be given as an injection in hospital.
