Diazepam…? goldpharmaJune 22, 2009 Q&A 7 CommentsIs Diazepam as addictive as Lorazepam..← At Which Reliable Online Pharmacy Can I Get Raw Codeine.?Will Taking A Valium Before I Get A Tattoo Affect The Results? → 7 thoughts on “Diazepam…?” Lori Ann June 23, 2009 at 1:40 amYES! Diazepam is the generic name for Valium. Diazepam and Lorazepam (trade name: Ativan) are benzodiazepines. All “benzos” are highly addictive —especially Diazepam/Valium. Most of the drugs ending in “pam” are in the benzodiazepine family. Diazepam (or Valium) is the most abused and widely prescribed medication, to date. If this medication has not been prescribed to you, do not take it (it’s illegal and dangerous)! If it has been prescribed to you, take ONLY as needed —-never double the dose and never take this medication just to take it. Diazepam IS more addictive than Lorazepam. However, addictive medications are just that —ADDICTIVE —-PHYSICALLY addicting. Consult your doctor regularly when you have been prescribed this class of medication.
