Diazepam 2 mg Tablets
Diazepam (Valium®) is a prescription medicine that is used for treating several different conditions. Your healthcare provider will recommend an appropriate amount of this medication based on various factors, including your age and the specific condition being treated.
Most people being treated for anxiety or seizures typically start with 2 mg diazepam tablets (one tablet, two to four times a day). Depending on the severity of your symptoms, your healthcare provider may recommend up to 10 mg two to four times daily. It is important to note that diazepam is only approved for use with other seizure medications.
For people experiencing alcohol withdrawal, dosing usually starts at diazepam 10 mg three or four times during the first 24 hours. After the first day, the amount is usually lowered to 5 mg three to four times daily as needed. You likely will not be on diazepam long-term; instead, it is taken just long enough to help your body deal with the initial symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.
The recommended dosage for treating muscle spasms is diazepam 2 mg to 10 mg three or four times daily.
