Effects Of Diazepam Withdrawal

The most authentic and solid study of the withdrawal symptoms was carried out by Winokur and his helpers.
The medical literature on the diazepam withdrawal symptoms suggests that the symptoms occur after 1-11 days of the withdrawal. The symptoms, according to the literature, include psychosis, anxiety and agitation, motor dysfunction, seizures, and restlessness. A wide spectrum of symptoms was observed. The literature indicates that some patients developed some of the symptoms while others were diagnosed with the whole spectrum of symptoms. The spectrum included symptoms like disturbed sleep, insomnia, anxiety, depression, hysterical neurosis, cardiac neurosis, backache, headache, and hyperventilation – even Tetanus.
