Valium Withdrawal Symptoms

Valium® (diazepam) is a prescription medication approved to treat seizures, anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, and muscle spasms. Because this drug can cause psychological and physical dependence, you should not stop taking it suddenly. Valium withdrawal symptoms may include insomnia, hallucinations, memory loss, and sensitivity to sound or light.
 
To avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, your healthcare provider may decide to wean you off Valium slowly -- though this may not be necessary in all situations. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider before stopping Valium. Withdrawal symptoms can be treated by your healthcare provider, so do not be afraid to ask him or her for any help with Valium withdrawal, even if you have been abusing Valium or taking it without a prescription. Withdrawal from Valium can be very dangerous.
