What should I know about diazepam tablets before taking them?

Do not use diazepam tablets if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy during treatment, or breast-feeding without talking to your doctor. Tell your doctor if you currently have or have had a history of liver disease, depression, addiction, alcohol intoxication, lung disease, kidney disease, muscle weakness, or glaucoma. Diazepam tablets are sedating and may cause vision problems. You should know how you react to this medication before operating a car or other machinery. You should also know that diazepam can be habit-forming, and withdrawal symptoms may result after the drug is discontinued.
