Valium Supplemental Side Effects and Emergency Page
Valium, just like any other medication you take, should be used with care. If you take proper precaution you will minimize health risk to you. However, sometimes accidents can happen or sometimes people-even good people make poor choices. This information will help you in the event you have accidentally or intentionally taken too much of this medication.
The first part of this is extended side effects information. The next part is warnings and actions you can take in the event of a possible overdose. You may have already been told some of this information when you received your first mental health or doctor's evaluation.
However, it helps to repeat it. It also helps to have it explained in a little bit different way, or just simply to have this information as a backup resource. It does not substitute for proper professional diagnosis and treatment, however. We do not treat or cure diseases nor are we a licensed medical facility.
