Is Klonopin just another name for Valium?

I was just wondering if it was the same as volume or if there are other components that make it different and what is the difference between the two. I take it for panic and anxiety attacks and I am thankful for it. It does make me very tired.

does valium have aspirin it

I took a soma and my head still hurts what can I take with this to help releave the pain without going to the doctor my doctor suspects I have MS ## Hi Betty, To answer your first question, Valium does NOT contain any Aspirin. The only active ingredient in Valium is Diazepam, which is a benzodiazepine, commonly prescribed for anxiety disorders and muscle spasms. Soma (Carisoprodol) is a muscle relaxant also prescribed for muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain. As far as drug interactions are concerned, I know Aspirin doesn't interact with Soma according to research from umm.edu, so that may be one option for you. However, it would probably be imperative that you speak with your doctor first, if inquiring about additional prescription-based options that you can safely take alongside Som... ...

valium placebo

I've had 22 5mg Valium in the last 24 hrs and some vodka (I never drink, i bought this to get through Christmas but gave myself alcohol poisoning instead) and the only thing that's happened is my balance is a bit iffy, that is literally the only thing i've noticed, are they placebos or what, I got them because my life sucks and i go mad when things go wrong, no change there either, I don't feel any different. ## Valium and vodka are a BAD mix. Diazapam is a catalyst for extreme alcohol binge session. A few shots of spirit behave more like a whole bottle. Expect an moment of euphora and then to lose something valuable: esteem, memory, self-respect, friendships... Valium seems to be active in system for a few days. You will probably remember the handover for some days/ ...

My husband has suddenly become afraid of taking dialysis after 6 yrs of going through with it. He was recommended to see a psychiatrist who recommended Etirest 0.5 mg.. 1tablet in the morning and 1/2 at nights. And, 45 minutes before dialysis 1 tablet.

Can I take Valium if I'm taking Primolut N?

I take Valium every night to help stabilize my anxiety issues, and to help me sleep a little better.

Took half a valium 10mg

I took a half a valium 10mg 15 days ago, is it still working in my body? ## Hi Ivan, From what I could gather, "the reported half-life of diazepam is listed at 43 hours (give or take 13 hours), but actually has a range as broad as 40-100 hours if you include the contribution from active metabolites; whereas Diazepam is metabolized into nordiazepam with an estimated half-life of 40-99 hours." Ref: nhtsa.gov/people/injury/research/job185drugs/diazepam.htm Given such a long half-life, lets just use 48 hours (or 2 days) as an example half-life for determining how long 10mgs will remain active in your body. On day 1: say you took 10mgs On day 3 (or 2 days later): 5mgs will be left On day 5: 2.5mgs will be left On day 7: 1.75mgs will be left On day 9: 0.875mgs will be left And if you ... ...

Small and round just like valium 10 but white

I have a couple of these pills that are white, round and small with a 10 under a line across and blank on the other side. It looks just like a valium as if it weren't blue just white. ## These tablets have been doing the rounds in my area of NE Scotland over the last few months. They may not be the same same batch but if so then I'd stay clear - not for the sake of your health, tho who knows whats in them, but for the sake of your wallet. They are being touted as valium but if indeed there is any active diazipam in them then its a miniscule amount. ## I've been taking these white valium tabelts with one side blank and 10 on the other. Are these real diazepam? I'm in NE Scotland. ...
