pill? It is a Diazepam 5mg pill - an anti-anxiety, anti-convulsant,
sedative/hypnotic and skeletal muscle relaxant. Diazepam is used
to treat a wide range of conditions and has been one of the most

For oral administration Diazepam comes as a tablet
(including Mylan 345 tablets), extended-release (long-acting) capsule,
and concentrate (liquid) to take by mouth. Do not open, chew, or crush
the extended-release capsules; swallow them whole. It usually is taken
one to four times a day and may be taken with or without food. Follow
the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your
doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand.
Diazepam (Valium), including Mylan 345
generic version pills, is a core medicine in the World Health
Organization's "Essential Drugs List", which is a list of minimum
medical needs for a basic health care system. Mylan Pharmaceuticals
plays an increasingly important role in the healthcare system by making
safe and effective prescription drugs more affordable for millions of
customers. Last year, pharmacists filled more than 197 million
prescriptions with products from Mylan in the USA, making it the #1
US-based manufacturer of generic pharmaceutical products. As you can
well appreciate, when there is more than one company manufacturing
and/or selling the same product, the competition generally results in
cost savings for the consumer. However, until the patent expires on a
name-brand drug, there is generally no competition, and therefore,
little incentive for lower prices. New drugs, like other new products,
are developed under patent protection. The patent protects the
investment in the drug's development by giving the company the sole
right to sell the drug while the patent is in effect. When patents or
other periods of exclusivity on brand-name drugs are near expiration,
manufacturers can apply to the FDA to sell generic versions. Mylan
Generics contain the same active chemical ingredients as their
name-brand counterparts and are identical in strength, dosage form
(tablet, liquid, etc.), and route of administration (taken by mouth,
FDA conducts about 3,500 inspections a year in all firms
to ensure standards are met. Generic firms have facilities comparable
to those of brand-name firms. In fact, Mylan brand-names account for an
estimated 50 percent of generic drug production. They frequently make
copies of their own or other brand-name drugs but sell them without
the brand name.
Keep Diazepam (Valium) in the container it came in,
tightly closed, and out of reach of children. Store Mylan pills, etc
at room temperature and away from excess heat and moisture (not in the
bathroom). Throw away any medication that is outdated or no longer
needed. Talk to your pharmacist about the proper disposal of your
medication. Mylan 345 tablets should be stored at room temperature
(15°-30°C), in air-tight containers and protected from light.
If you are taking Diazepam to control seizures and have
an increase in their frequency or severity, call your doctor. Your
dose may need to be adjusted. If you use Diazepam for seizures, carry
identification (Medic Alert) stating that you have epilepsy and that
you are taking benzodiazepines.
If you take several doses per day and miss a dose, skip
the missed 5mg, etc dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do
not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
The most frequent side effects of Diazepam (including
Mylan 345 5mg pills) are drowsiness, fatigue, and ataxia (loss of
balance). Rarely, Diazepam causes a paradoxical reaction with
excitability, muscle spasm, lack of sleep, and rage. Confusion,
depression, speech problems, and double vision are also rare side
effects of diazepam.
