Use of Valium
Prescribed by a doctor, Valium is often used for treating anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, seizures, muscle spasms, alcohol withdrawal, and restless leg syndrome.
Although it is less addictive than heroin, cocaine, or meth, the availability is greater leading to more common addictions to the drug. People using this drug may experience withdrawal symptoms if they stop taking it. As a drug that is supposed to help relieve other issues, it can cause more issues. Mixing this drug with alcohol can lead to problems such as disorientation, accidents, sedation, dizziness, nausea, brain damage, and fatality.
