Common Side Effects
Diazepam has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occur in a group of people taking the drug are documented and are then compared to side effects that occur in another group of people not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
In these studies, some of the most common diazepam side effects included:
- Coordination problems.
Some other possible side effects included:
- Double vision
- Bladder or bowel control problems
- Changes in sex drive
- Salivation changes
- Slurred speech
- Shakiness (tremors)
- Difficulty passing urine
- A spinning sensation (vertigo)
- Blurred vision.
