Diazepam Overdose Causes and Reviews


What are opioids?

Opioids, sometimes called narcotics, are a type of drug. They include strong prescription pain relievers, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, and tramadol. The illegal drug heroin is also an opioid.

A health care provider may give you a prescription opioid to reduce pain after you have had a major injury or surgery. You may get them if you have severe pain from health conditions like cancer. Some health care providers prescribe them for chronic pain.

Prescription opioids used for pain relief are generally safe when taken for a short time and as prescribed by your health care provider. However, people who take opioids are at risk for opioid dependence and addiction, as well as an Overdose. These risks increase when opioids are misused. Misuse means you are not taking the medicines according to your provider's instructions, you are using them to get high, or you are taking someone else's opioids.

What is an opioid Overdose?

Opioids affect the part of the brain that regulates breathing. When people take high doses of opioids, it can lead to an Overdose, with the slowing or stopping of breathing and sometimes death.

What causes an opioid Overdose?

An opioid Overdose can happen for a variety of reasons, including if you

  • Take an opioid to get high
  • Take an extra dose of a prescription opioid or take it too often (either accidentally or on purpose)
  • Mix an opioid with other medicines, illegal drugs, or alcohol. An Overdose can be fatal when mixing an opioid and certain anxiety treatment medicines, such as Xanax or Valium.
  • Take an opioid medicine that was prescribed for someone else. Children are especially at risk of an accidental Overdose if they take medicine not intended for them.

There is also a risk of Overdose if you are getting medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT is a treatment for opioid abuse and addiction. Many of the medicines used for MAT are controlled substances that can be misused.

Who is at risk for an opioid Overdose?

Anyone who takes an opioid can be at risk of an Overdose, but you are at higher risk if you

  • Take illegal opioids
  • Take more opioid medicine than you are prescribed
  • Combine opioids with other medicines and/or alcohol
  • Have certain medical conditions, such as sleep apnea, or reduced kidney or liver function
  • Are over 65 years old
What are the signs of an opioid Overdose?

The signs of an opioid Overdose include

  • The person's face is extremely pale and/or feels clammy to the touch
  • Their body goes limp
  • Their fingernails or lips have a purple or blue color
  • They start vomiting or making gurgling noises
  • They cannot be awakened or are unable to speak
  • Their breathing or heartbeat slows or stops
What should I do if I think that someone is having an opioid Overdose?

If you think someone is having an opioid Overdose,

  • Call 9-1-1 immediately
  • Administer naloxone, if it is available. Naloxone is a safe medication that can quickly stop an opioid Overdose. It can be injected into the muscle or sprayed into the nose to rapidly block the effects of the opioid on the body.
  • Try to keep the person awake and breathing
  • Lay the person on their side to prevent choking
  • Stay with the person until emergency workers arrive
How can I prevent an opioid Overdose?

There are steps you can take to help prevent an Overdose:

  • Take your medicine exactly as prescribed by your health care provider. Do not take more medicine at once or take medicine more often than you are supposed to.
  • Never mix pain medicines with alcohol, sleeping pills, or illegal substances
  • Store medicine safely where children or pets can't reach it. Consider using a medicine lockbox. Besides keeping children safe, it also prevents someone who lives with you or visits your house from stealing your medicines.
  • Dispose of unused medicine promptly

If you take an opioid, it is also important to teach your family and friends how to respond to an Overdose. If you are at high risk for an Overdose, ask your health care provider about whether you need a prescription for naloxone.


Diazepam Overdose Reviews

Wed, 28 Apr 2010

I had been prescribed Valium at one point for anxiety. Months after my anxiety had subsided (I was on Celexa), I took valium when I was having trouble sleeping one night. I felt asleep quickly but woke up in the middle of the night from a nightmare and was the most scared I have ever been in my life. I was afraid and in panic and didn't want to be alone. I felt like a little kid again. I went into my roommates room and slept on the floor. The next day I flushed the rest of them down the toilet.

Did you it help? no more nightmares?

Tue, 12 Jan 2010

1-09 When I took a very small amount, 2.5 mg, it just relaxed me. I took it to get on the plane. But when I took 5 or 10 (rx'd by my doc for muscle spasms that woke me up) I had nightmares. I seldom if ever had nightmares, and never about people I knew. These nightmares were about family members, and in each case, I woke crying. The dreams are so vivid I know I'll have to stop taking the med - except in very small amounts on occasion, for anxiety.

Thu, 12 May 2011

My doctor prescribed valium for stress and anxiety. I have had very strange and lucid dreams. I am also taking antibiotics, lovenox,and nadalol, for some serious medical conditions. *DONT_KNOW*

Thu, 21 Jan 2010
my daughter has taken diasepam25mg for many years.could this cause longterm memory loss?she also takes 85mg methedone also smokes weed.which of them would cause the memory loss most?
Sun, 15 Aug 2010
I have had a very similar experience however I have terrifying and vivid nightmares the following night after a sound nights sleep has already been had. Most of the dreams end with me thinking that I have woken up and that I am having horrible hallucinations before realizing that I am still asleep.
Tue, 14 Dec 2010
<span>Anon- I would say the weed would cause the MOST memory loss used over time also depending on how strong it is ie, (haze, kush....dro...regs from 60's with seeds) THE STONGER it is the faster the brain cells go! As far as the valium/diazapam or xanex at the time of use will make you for get things as well as forgetting what you had done or said in that period of time. I hope this helps you! </span>
Fri, 31 Dec 2010
i find that taking Diazepam 5mg twice a day i get totally relaxed and sleep well.My coordination would not be the best so i do avoid driving.The only problem i seem to be having regarding it is that i needto take it every day or i become agitated,anxious,and down.I hope that this does not mean i am becoming dependant on it but it helps me get through the day
