Valium Abuse Treatment for Women

Valium abuse can often be a result of its common use to treat anxiety and panic disorder. It is a depressant drug that works towards slowing down the brain’s activity, thus reducing anxiety and other similar issues. While Valium abuse can be highly effective in treating a variety of mental conditions, a lot of patients steer away from the doctor’s recommended dosage and begin abusing the drug.

That happens because Valium can create intense feelings of euphoria and relaxation, promoting patients to increase their dosage to prolong these effects. Because users can become extremely addicted to it, Valium is one of the most commonly abused medications in the sedative category.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, its widespread availability has also influenced the Valium abuse rates. So much so that Valium was the fourth most-prescribed benzodiazepine in 2011. While doctors are now more cautious when prescribing the drug, the problem is still prevalent today.


Valium Abuse Withdrawal

With Valium abuse, withdrawal symptoms usually reach their peak within the first three to four days after the patient begins treatment. If the person struggles with depression or anxiety, they may experience the effects as soon as 24 hours after the last dose. But, according to NIH, withdrawal symptoms can last up to 12 months for patients with complicated dependencies.


Some of the most common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Tremors
  • Cramps
  • High blood pressure
  • Confusion
  • Panic attacks
  • Depression
