Is disorientation a side effect of diazepam? Was prescribed it this morning, took my first one about 45 minutes ago and now I feel a bit disorientated and woozy

    If it's your first time you will feel this way. They give a kind of drunk feeling. I take diazepam but they don't do much for me now but I remember those feekings at the beginning of treatment. Don't drive. Can you stay in for a couple of days until you get used to them. 

    Do they make you feel less anxious?

    Don't get too hung up about the addictive nature of diazepam, they are addictive but if taken as directed by your GP you will be fine.

    They are the weakest of benzo's and if used correctly you won't get addicted.
