Titration of your Generic Valium (Diazepam) dosage is a method of tapering your body off of the medication once you are done taking it. Many medical professionals do not recommend that you stop Generic Valium treatment immediately as it can lead to symptoms of withdrawal.
For the titration method, you will need:
A measuring device (such as a graduated cylinder or a syringe)
Storage contained like a sealable bottle you can find at any local pharmacy
Moral and pestel
Optional: sugar and blender
You crush the Generic Valium using the mortal and pestel. The crushed Generic Valium is then added to water, usually somewhere between 100 and 250 milliliters. Shake the water and medication mixture for a few minutes until the Generic Valium is absorbed into the water. Some individuals do this with a blender instead for 30 seconds. Pour the solution into the bottle and before you take it, shake it up to make sure all the crushed Generic Valium is not at the bottom of the bottle. Some individuals also prefer to mix a bit of sugar in the mixture to the Generic Valium will not settle. This methods stands also for using Valium for alcohol withdrawal.
Make small reductions of the amount of Generic Valium put into the bottle to lower the amount in the blood levels.
Make a new solution every day.
It is important to keep in mind if you go with the titration method of your Generic Valium dosage should be under the complete supervision of a medical professional. Generic Valium is not water soluble so it can sink to the bottom and you will not get the proper dosage one day and too much the next. Improper titration can lead to an overdose of Diazepam. An overdose of Diazepam includes central nervous system impairment. Other symptoms include diplopia, somnolence, intoxication, impaired balance, anterograde amnesia, impaired motor functions, slurred speech and ataxia. There are also paradoxical symptoms that are associated with a Diazepam overdose, including delirium, anxiety, hallucinations, aggression, nausea and vomiting, and combativeness. Severe overdoses can lead to hypothermia, hypoxemia, bradycardia, hypotension, pulmonary arrest, cardiac arrest, and possibly even death.
