Valium Medication

Valium® (diazepam) is a medication often used for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal, anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures. It is available by prescription only and comes in tablet, oral liquid, and injectable forms.
Valium belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. It works by enhancing the effects of a naturally calming chemical in the brain. Medicines in this drug class have been shown to help reduce anxiety, relax muscles, cause sleepiness, stop seizures, and impair short-term memory.
Most people appear to tolerate this medication well. As with any medicine, however, side effects are possible with Valium. Medication side effects may include fatigue, coordination problems, and drowsiness.
