Oct. 1, 2010 - PRLog -- Valium (diazepam) is one of the most widely prescribed drugs in history and twice as many woman have been prescribed Valium than men.  Is Valium physically addictive? Is it psychololgically addictive? Is there any danger of overdose? Have there been fatalities as a result of Valium? Does Valium (diazepam) cure anxiety?

Valium is described by one author and authority on prescription drugs as "emotional aspirin". Most psychiatric drugs treat symptoms, but do not cure the disorder, and this is true of drugs prescribed for anxiety as well. So, while Valium can give some temporary relief for anxiety, the underlying causes of the anxiety need to be addressed in order to provide more permanent relief or a lasting solution to common anxiety, or to anxiety disorders.

The history of Valium is of much interest. Related predecessors to Valium (1970) were Librium (1960) and Thorazine (approximately 1959). While the first drug to be widely used in the psychiatric hospital setting, Thorazine, was a major tranquilizer, drugs such as Librium and Valium, though closely related, are considered to be minor tranquilizers.
