Diazepam HF Hemofarm 10 mg from the Bosnian manufacturer Hemofarm (the largest pharmaceutical company in the country and a subsidiary of STADA) is a generic diazepam.
Diazepam is currently one of the most frequently prescribed sleeping pills (hypnotics). In addition, the active ingredient is used as a tranquilizer (sedative), anticonvulsant (antiepileptic), antianxiety agent (anxiolytic) and for muscle relaxation (muscle relaxant). Diazepam requires a prescription and may be taken only as directed by a physician.
Diazepam is a drug from the group of benzodiazepines and as such has an anxiety-relieving, sedative, muscle-relaxing and antispasmodic effect. The active ingredient influences the nerve cells in the brain stem and the limbic system – a functional unit of the brain that is essentially responsible for a person’s state of mind. Diazepam enhances the inhibitory effect of a transmitter substance (gamma-aminobutyric acid), thereby reducing the excitability of cells. The inhibitory effect in the area of neurons in the brainstem has a muscle-relaxing, sedative and sleep-promoting effect. By dampening the limbic system, the influence of external and internal stimuli and their processing is reduced, and a distance is created from external and internal experiences. This relieves anxiety and tension and provides emotional calming. At the same time, emotional disturbances have a lesser effect on the autonomic nervous system, which controls vital functions such as heartbeat, blood pressure, breathing and digestion.
Diazepam tablets and diazepam drops are taken with a glass of water either before a meal or some time after. Diazepam suppositories are inserted into the anus, and rectal tubes are emptied into the anus according to the product information.
The doctor determines the diazepam dosage and duration of use on an individual basis. In principle, the dose should be kept as low as possible and the duration of treatment as short as possible. As a rule, diazepam should not be used for longer than four weeks.
Evening doses should be taken half an hour before bedtime. The drug should not be taken on a full stomach, as this delays the onset of action. It also helps to avoid side effects such as fatigue and lack of concentration the next morning.
Side effects are dose-dependent and occur mainly at the beginning of treatment. The most important adverse effects include daytime sleepiness and drowsiness with impaired alertness and responsiveness.
Other possible side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, confusion, gait and movement disorders, headache, and temporary memory lapses.
In patients with a pre-existing depressive disorder, diazepam may increase depressive moods. The occurrence of sensory disturbances and reversal of diazepam effects are also possible. Reversal of effect is manifested by short-term states of agitation, anxiety, sleep disturbances, tantrums, muscle spasms, and increased suicidal tendencies.
Benzodiazepines such as diazepam must not be used in cases of known hypersensitivity to this group of active substances, nor in cases of severe pathological muscle weakness (myasthenia gravis).
In certain other cases, use is recommended only if absolutely necessary and after a careful risk-benefit assessment, such as acute intoxication with alcohol or other centrally depressant substances, severe liver damage, severe respiratory weakness, and narrow-angle glaucoma (a form of glaucoma).
