How should I take diazepam?
Take diazepam exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Never use diazepam in larger amounts, or for longer than prescribed. Tell your doctor if you feel an increased urge to use more of this medicine. Never share this medicine with another person, especially someone with a history of drug addiction. MISUSE CAN CAUSE ADDICTION, OVERDOSE, OR DEATH. Keep the medicine where others cannot get to it. Selling or giving away this medicine is against the law. Measure liquid medicine with the supplied measuring device (not a kitchen spoon). Diazepam should be used for only a short time. Do not take this medicine for longer than 4 months without your doctor’s advice.
