Diazepam for Children

Diazepam (Valium®) is a prescription medication licensed for the treatment of various conditions, including alcohol withdrawal, anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures. It has not been adequately studied in children less than six months old.
 
When using diazepam in children, the dosage will be based on several factors, such as age, the medical condition being treated, and other medications the child is taking, including nonprescription medications, vitamins, and supplements.
 
This drug is available in tablet, oral liquid, and injectable forms. When used orally, diazepam is usually taken three or four times a day, or sometimes more or less often. Before giving this medication to your child, talk to your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using diazepam in children.
