1. What is Diazepan Prodes 10 mg tablets and what is it used for

Diazepam, active ingredient of the specialty, is a benzodiazepine derivative that presents tranquilizing, sedative, muscle relaxant (muscle relaxant), anticonvulsant (for seizures) and antipsychotic activity.

 

Doctors prescribe this medicine to people who suffer from anxiety, agitation and psychic tension due to psychoneurotic states and transient situational disorders. They also prescribe it to patients with alcohol deprivation, since it can be useful for the symptomatic relief of acute agitation, tremor and hallucinations.

 

In addition, it is used together with other medications for the relief of musculoskeletal pain due to spasms (contractures) or local pathology (inflammation of muscles or joints, trauma, etc.). It can also be used to treat spasticity (rigidity) in conditions such as cerebral palsy and paraplegia, as well as in athetosis (involuntary movements) and in the syndrome of generalized rigidity.

 

Also, diazepam can be used together with other medications in the treatment of seizure disorders because as a single treatment it has not been shown to be useful. In these cases, the doctor must periodically assess the usefulness of the medication for each patient.

 

2. Before taking Diazepan Prodes 10 mg tablets

This medicine is for oral administration.

 

Do not take Diazepan Prodes

  • If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to diazepam or any of the other ingredients of Diazepan Prodes.
  • If you are dependent on other substances, including alcohol, unless your doctor tells you to.
  • If you have angle-closure glaucoma (increased tension in the eye) and have severe chronic hypercapnia (increased carbon dioxide or CO in the blood).

 

Take special care with Diazepan Prodes

  • If you have myasthenia (weakness and fatigue of the muscles), since you can suffer greater muscle fatigue, if you suffer from moderate respiratory failure, as well as if you suffer from kidney or liver failure. Your doctor should adjust the dose.
  • If you suffer from depression, you should take into account that diazepam only acts on the anxious component, so it does not in itself constitute a treatment for depression and may eventually unmask some signs of depression.

 

Use of other medications

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.

 

You should not take Diazepan Prodes together with central nervous system action drugs, such as neuroleptics (medicines used in psychiatry), tranquilizers, antidepressants, hypnotics (sleep facilitators), anticonvulsants (for seizures), analgesics (for pain) and anesthetics, since they increase the sedative action of diazepam.

 

Neither should you take Diazepan Prodes together with cisapride (medicine used for gastrointestinal disorders) since it produces a transient increase in the sedative effect of diazepam, as does cimetidine (a medicine for gastric acidity), which increases the risk of drowsiness.

 

If you take Diazepan Prodes together with phenytoin (medicine for epilepsy) your doctor should check the blood concentrations of the latter, as they can suffer unpredictable changes causing signs of toxicity or decreased activity or no change.

 

Taking Diazepan Prodes with food and drinks

You should avoid the ingestion of alcoholic beverages during treatment with Diazepan Prodes 10 mg tablets, since alcohol enhances the sedative action.

 

Pregnancy and lactation

Consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking any medicine.

If you are or suspect you are pregnant, or wish to be pregnant, you should inform your doctor before starting treatment, and he will decide whether or not to take Diazepan Prodes.

 

Diazepam is eliminated by breast milk, so its use is not recommended during the period of lactation; If your doctor thinks you have to take it, you should replace breastfeeding.
