Diazepam is most well known for being used in anxiety related disorders, muscle spasms, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and insomnia. It does have other medicinal qualities but they are a bit more technical for this article. Diazepam is a great short term drug for the above related symptoms and is still used as much today as it was thirty years ago.
Diazepam has been most widely used in the treatment of anxiety and depression. Anxiety sufferers where measured in a study done by the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. Amazingly the results came back with some huge numbers. Some 40 to 50 million people alone in the U.S suffer from anxiety related disorders. 19 million people suffer from some sort of phobia related anxiety, 15 million people suffer from social anxiety disorders, 7.7 million people suffer from post traumatic disorder, 6.8 million people suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and around 6 million people suffer from direct panic and anxiety attacks that can lead you straight to the emergency room. As you can see from these numbers you can see why diazepam has become so cheap just by the large volume of people suffering from anxiety disorders.
