Diazepam (including Mylan 477 generic
version) is a member of the benzodiazepine family. Benzodiazepines are
drugs that cause dose-related depression of the central nervous system.
They are useful in treating anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and muscle spasms.
Mylan 477 tablets and other benzodiazepines may
influence neurosteroid metabolism and progesterone levels which in
turn may adversely influence the functions of the brain and
reproductive system. Many benzodiazepines (diazepam 10mg,
medazepam, estazolam, flunitrazepam and nitrazepam) potently inhibit
the enzymes involved in the metabolism of neurosteroids. Long-term
Diazepam administration, including Mylan's generics, may influence the
concentrations of endogenous neurosteroids, and thereby would modulate
the emotional state.
Because of the drug's addicting potential, dosages should never be
increased by the patient. In patients addicted to Diazepam, abrupt
discontinuation of the medicine can lead to symptoms of withdrawal
(insomnia, headaches, nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness, sweating,
anxiety, and fatigue).
Diazepam drug has a broad spectrum of
indications (most of which are off-label), including:
Treatment of anxiety, panic attacks, and states of agitation
Treatment of status epilepticus, adjunctive treatment of
other forms of epilepsy
Treatment of tetanus, together with other measures of
Adjunctive treatment (with antipsychotics), in patients who
develop early extrapyramidal side-effects
Palliative treatment of stiff person syndrome
Used to alleviate the symptoms of Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome
Emergency treatment of eclampsia, along with IV magnesium
Dosages should be determined on an individual basis, depending upon the
condition to be treated, the severity of symptoms, the body weight of
the patient, and any comorbid conditions the patient may have.
It has been shown in a clinical study that 100% of patients on low dose
Diazepam therapy long term are physically dependent on their
medication. Increased ratings of dizziness, blurred vision, heart
pounding, feelings of unreality, pins and needles. Nausea,
sweatiness, noises louder than usual, jitteriness, things moving,
sensitivity to touch and panic attacks may be experienced as withdrawal
symptoms in low therapeutic dose long term users of diazepam when
discontinuing their diazepam medication. Laboratory tests assessing the
toxicity of the drugs like Diazepam, nitrazepam and chlordiazepoxide on
mice spermatozoa found that Diazepam produced toxicities in sperm
including abnormalities involving both the shape and size of the sperm
head. Nitrazepam however caused more profound abnormalities than
