Discussions that mention diazepam

Back Problems board

I have a post back a bit but i am trying to find sites about medication and the effects of them. I have currently been put on endone and diazepam and not sure what to expect . Yesturday after taking them i waas zonked out . They took the the edge of the pain for a while and i did have a good nights sleep, i have taken them this morning while i dont have the zonked out effect still tired.
Is this how they make u feel all the time or just untill you get used to them?
thanks rachel
diazepam is actually Valium which is an antianxiety med (first line use) so it could make you sleepy. Maybe after a week or so you will get used to it. Or maybe your doses could be timed differently so that most of the sleepiness happens at night.
