Best Answer

Withdrawal symptoms will occur if patients stop taking anxiolytics suddenly. Patients should only discontinue using diazepam and related anxiolytics at the advice of their physician and the dosage of the drugs should be reduced slowly.

Can Valium be injected?

Diazepam (Valium) can be injected. But after intramuscular injection, you have an erratic absorption of the drug. So it is better given orally than intramuscularly. It should be given intravenously. But then it is given very slowly in antecubital vein and NOT in peripheral vein. You look to the face of the patient. When he closes his eyes, you stop. Otherwise the patient will stop his respiration and he can die eventually. When patient is having convulsions, it is difficult to give diazepam, intravenously. In this situation, you can give intra-rectal diazepam. Absorption of the intra-rectal diazepam should be given as cautiously as intravenous diazepam. Because absorption of intrarectal diazepam is as fast and as predictable as intravenous diazepam.
