Serious Side Effects

  • Decreased breathing from use with opioids
      Higher risk if:
    • Taking Valium (diazepam) with opioids, drugs or alcohol
    • Using Valium (diazepam) for a longer duration and at high doses

    Using Valium (diazepam) in combination with opioids (a type of pain medicine) may cause severe drowsiness, slowed breathing, and potentially even coma or death. This combination should be avoided. Alcohol use should also be avoided while taking Valium (diazepam). If you experience excessive drowsiness or slowed breathing, notify your doctor right away and seek medical care.

    This is a black box warning. The FDA requires this warning when there is a significant risk of serious or life-threatening effects that anyone taking the drug should consider.
  • Dependence and withdrawal
      Higher risk if:
    • History of substance abuse
    • Taking with alcohol or drugs
    • Taking long-term
    • Taking a higher dose
    • Stopping Valium (diazepam) suddenly

    Valium (diazepam) has a risk of physical and psychological dependence. If you have been taking Valium (diazepam) for a while or at a high dose, suddenly decreasing or stopping the dose can cause withdrawal symptoms such as stomach cramps, vomiting, sweating, headache, anxiety, irritability, and muscle pain. Take Valium (diazepam) exactly as prescribed and talk to your doctor if you wish to stop taking Valium (diazepam).

  • Driving impairment
      Higher risk if:
    • Alcohol use with Valium (diazepam)
    • Taking other medicines that make you less alert

    Valium (diazepam) impairs your ability to focus, think, and react. These effects can extend to the morning after taking Valium (diazepam). Be careful and avoid activities that require you to be alert, such as driving a car or operating machinery, until you know how this medicine affects you.

  • Drug interactions
      Higher risk if:
    • Current liver problems
    • Taking Tagamet, ketoconazole, Prozac, Prilosec

    Since Valium (diazepam) is processed by the liver, you may need a lower dose if you have liver problems. Certain drugs can interfere with Valium (diazepam) and cause it to reach dangerous levels in the body. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about all the medicines you're taking, including over-the-counter, prescription, and supplements.
