Withdrawal Of Diazepam

Diazepam Withdrawal – A Review of the Medical Literature
Extensive research and studies have been carried out to study the medical after-effects of the drug when the usage is stopped. The reaction of the drug and physical dependence of the human body was first observed by Hollister and his collaborators in 1963 while they were studying the treatment of schizophrenic patients with diazepam. It has also been studied that the patients who stop using the diazepam often confuse their withdrawal symptoms with their disorders and think that their previous symptoms are returning and hence resume the drug usage.
