Avoid Diazepam Withdrawal with Our Proven Tapering Method
Diazepam was first marketed as Valium in 1963 and is a long-acting benzodiazepine with a half-life of one to three days, but peak plasma levels occur within 30-90 minutes. Diazepam is commonly used for anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, seizures, Meniere’s Disease and restless leg syndrome because it possesses anti-anxiety, anticonvulsant, sedative, hypnotic, muscle relaxant and amnestic properties.
Diazepam binds to the GABA receptors, which are the most prevalent inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter of the body. However, like all benzodiazepines, continued use of Diazepam down-regulates the GABA receptors and tolerance occurs, where a larger dose is required to have the same calming effect. After tolerance to Diazepam develops, the calming effect diminishes while anxiety and other excessive excitatory symptoms increase. This hyper-excitability is responsible for the wide and debilitating withdrawal symptoms if Diazepam is withdrawn too rapidly. Both a psychological and physical addiction to Diazepam can occur and therefore Diazepam is only recommended for short-term use. It is critical to not abruptly stop Diazepam , but rather to gradually lower the dose over an extended period of time to minimize withdrawal symptoms.

Valium (Diazepam) was released in 1963 as an improved version of Librium, and was 2-1/2 times more potent than its predecessor drug. It quickly made Roche a pharmaceutical giant other companies began to introduce additional benzodiazepine derivatives onto the market. Diazepam was the top-selling pharmaceutical in the United States from 1969 to 1982 but in recent years the public perception of benzodiazepines has become increasingly negative. Long-term effects (greater than 10-14 days) include tolerance, and a pronouneed withdrawal syndrome upon dose reduction. Diazepam can cause serious problems of addiction and is therefore only recommended for short-term therapy at the lowest possible dose. Therapy must be discontinued gradually to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms.
