Diazepam is a type of drug called a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines are mild tranquilizers, producing a calming effect on those who take them. But did you know that diazepam can do much more than just that?
How is diazepam used?
Diazepam is available in a variety of different forms. Pills, injectable solution and suppositories are the most common. It can be used to treat pain, anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizure disorders.
What are diazepam suppositories?
Diazepam suppositories are custom compounded in a special base for vaginal or rectal delivery.
Diazepam suppositories are often prescribed to people with seizure disorders. Many of these individuals are children or take other drugs for seizure control. During a seizure episode, a diazepam rectal suppository can be given quickly, safely and effectively to control seizure attacks. They are not intended for long-term use.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Compounded diazepam suppositories are sometimes used to treat pelvic floor dysfunction and vulvodynia. Vaginal diazepam has been shown to reduce pain without the unwanted side effects associated with oral diazepam.
Side effects and other important information
Common side effects of diazepam suppositories include:
Itching of face, throat and/or tongue
If you or your child experience any side effects when using diazepam suppositories, contact your physician right away. Talk to your pharmacist or physician if you are taking any other medications, as diazepam may interact with other medications. While diazepam is absorbed into the body differently through a vaginal or rectal suppository,do not consume alcohol while taking diazepam. Discuss your alcohol consumption with your physician before taking diazepam suppositories. Diazepam can affect other disorders (such as glaucoma, liver disease, respiratory disease), so please discuss other medical issues with your physician before starting diazepam suppositories. Use the medication as prescribed by your doctor. The information provided is not intended to cover all possible uses. This information is generalized and not intended as specific medical advice. If you have questions about the use of your prescription, please contact your prescriber.
