Valium Safety

Valium® (diazepam) is a mediation that is available by prescription to treat alcohol withdrawal, anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures (when used along with other seizure medicines).
Before you start using Valium, safety warnings and precautions for the drug should be discussed with your healthcare provider to help ensure a safe treatment process. You should tell him or her about all other medical conditions you have, including liver or kidney disease, glaucoma, depression, or any history of alcohol or drug abuse.
It is also important to know that Valium is a controlled substance, which means that it has the potential to be abused. The medication can cause physical and psychological dependence, a problem that is more likely to occur if you take higher Valium doses for long periods of time.
There are also a number of side effects that you should look out for while taking this drug. Some of the most commonly reported side effects of Valium include coordination problems, fatigue, and drowsiness.
