Diazepam (brand names Valium, Stesolid, Seduxen, Bosaurin, Diapam and Apozepam) is a benzodiazepine derivative, possessing anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, sedative, skeletal muscle relaxant, and amnestic properties. This makes it a useful drug for treating anxiety, insomnia, seizures (including status epilepticus), alcohol withdrawal, benzodiazepine withdrawal, opiate withdrawal syndrome, Ménière's disease, restless legs syndrome, and muscle spasms. It is also used before certain medical procedures (such as endoscopies) to reduce tension and anxiety, and in some surgical procedures to induce amnesia. Common side effects include sleepiness and trouble with coordination. Long term use can result in tolerance, dependence, and withdrawal upon dose reduction. Diazepam is a core medicine in the World Health Organization 's Essential Drugs List, which is a list of minimum medical needs for a basic health care system. Diazepam is one of the most frequently prescribed benzodiazepines. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.
