What is Diazepam
buy diazepam 10mg online tablets (Die-A-zi-pam) is a benzodiazepine anxiety medication that is prescribed by doctors in either a 2 mg, 5 mg or 10 mg tablet; it also comes in a liquid form that you can swallow, or in a rectal tube. It is sometimes given as an injection in hospitals to help reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
This medication was first introduced in the 1960’s by Hoffmann-La Roche and marketed as the well-known Valium (VAL-ee-um). Due to the powerful sedative, calming effects of this drug it is commonly prescribed by doctors for treating anxiety related conditions, and customers in the UK can now buy Diazepam tablets online easily from the comfort of their home.
How Diazepam Works
This medication has a fast onset of action and is highly effective for the management of a wide range of anxiety related disorders due to how it works in the body. Valium works by increasing the activity of a chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain.
GABA is an amino acid that is naturally found in the human brain. It works as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which blocks certain brain signals and nerve impulses, and in turn helps produce a calm feeling.
When a Valium tablet is swallowed, the active ingredient enters the bloodstream and locks onto GABA receptors in the brain, which quickly produces and promotes a feeling of calm in the patient.
Its ability to produce this fast calming effect is the main reason this medication has so many uses.
What Diazepam is Used to Treat
Due to the powerful, fast acting, sedative qualities of this medication it has many uses on and off label, and some of the most common conditions that it is used to treat include:
|Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD):||Long-term condition that is characterised by anxiety about various situations and issues. GAD has psychological as well as physical symptoms.
These symptoms generally begin with feelings of worry and fear, and when combined with heart palpitations and difficulty breathing this can result in an uncontrollable panic attack.
|Social Anxiety (social phobia):||An estimated 7% of adults in the UK suffer from social anxiety , which involves worrying about speaking to people, meeting new people, and low self-esteem.
It is normal to worry about certain social events. People with social anxiety however, worry about social events before, during and even after the event has finished.
|Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD):||A common mental health condition in which a person may experience unwanted and recurring thoughts, images and sensations. This causes a strong desire to do something repetitively or carry out activities to ease the obsessions.
OCD is generally treated using a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors medication (SSRIs).
|Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS):||Studies show that restless leg syndrome (RLS) is an increasing problem in the United Kingdom with symptoms ranging from the inability to get comfortable when trying to relax, to the inability to get to sleep at night.
Over time this constant inability to properly relax, along with insufficient sleep, can create problems such as difficulty concentrating, fatigue and mood disturbances.
|Sleeping Problems (insomnia):||Anxiety can be related to sleep onset insomnia, which involves trouble falling asleep at the beginning of the night. Anxiety can also be associated with sleep maintenance insomnia, which involves frequent awakenings during the night with difficulty returning to sleep.
When this happens on a long-term basis, a patient may begin to experience
|Muscle Spasms:||Also known as cramps, muscle spasms can be the result of various conditions ranging from a lower back injury to multiple sclerosis. Muscle spasms can cause involuntary movements and severe pain. Luckily there are a number of medications available to treat spasms.|
|Epilepsy (Seizure):||A seizure is the result of abnormal electrical activity in the brain that can cause changes in movements or behaviour. Seizures can be an indication of epilepsy but they can also be caused by other conditions. Symptoms may include temporary confusion, loss of consciousness or awareness and emotional problems like fear and anxiety.
Medication treats seizures by calming unusual electrical activity in the brain.
|Alcohol Withdrawal:||Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include tremors, nausea, anxiety and insomnia. This happen when a patient stops alcohol use after drinking heavily for a long time. During withdrawal from alcohol, medication can act as a substitute and reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms experienced.|
|Opiate Withdrawal:||Opiates (or opioids) are strong painkillers and sometimes referred to as narcotics. Strong narcotic pain relievers such as hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (Oxycontin), methadone and morphine are designed to be used for a short time and then users are supposed to cut back gradually. Opiate withdrawal symptoms range from agitation and anxiety to abdominal cramps and vomiting.
Treatment for opiate withdrawal is usually a combination of counseling and benzodiazepine medication which can help to ease the withdrawal symptoms.
|Phobias (Phobic Anxiety):||Specific phobias like the fear of flying or the fear of crowded and enclosed spaces can cause overwhelming physical and emotional symptoms. People with specific phobias often take drastic measures to avoid situations, places or objects that may trigger an anxious response.
This can interfere with daily activities, personal relationships and prevent a person from enjoying life. Phobic anxiety can, however, be effectively treated with therapy, medication or a combination of both.
|Before Medical Procedure:||Anxiety before a procedure like a dental treatment, surgery or an endoscopy is a common problem. Studies shown that up to 70% of patients experience some level of anxiety before a procedure.
Physical symptoms may involve nausea, chest pain and a racing heart. This can have a negative effect on outcomes by causing issues like unwanted movement during a procedure.
In this case it is extremely important for patients to tell doctors about the phobia and the medication being used to treat it, to ensure there are no unwanted contraindications.
