What is this pill for: diazepam 5 mg?

Answer

According to Drugs.com, the prescription medication diazepam is a benzodiazepine primarily used to treat anxiety disorders, alcohol withdrawal symptoms and muscle spasms. Typical adult dosage for anxiety treatment or muscle spasm is 2 to 10 milligrams, two to four times per day. Use of diazepam during pregnancy is not recommended.

Drugs.com states that benzodiazepines work by acting selectively on the gamma-aminobutyric acid-A receptors of the brain. The result is negatively charged neurons that are resistant to excitation.

WebMD indicates that side effects of benzodiazepines include irritability, drowsiness and poor concentration. Additionally, benzodiazepines can cause dependence when used over long periods of time.
