Common Side Effects of Diazepam
Diazepam may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Do not drive or use machinery until you know how diazepam will affect your body.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding, so that your doctor can chose the right medicine for you. Diazepam can harm your unborn baby. Diazepam can also pass through breast milk. You should avoid breast-feeding while taking diazepam.

Your doctor will prescribe the right dose for you based on your age and medical condition. Older adults may need a smaller dose to avoid feeling too sedated and help them be less likely to fall.

Seek emergency help immediately if you have any signs of an allergic reaction while taking diazepam. Symptoms may include hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling of your face, tongue, lips, or throat.
