Valium or Benzodiazepam Effects

Answered on August 19, 2014

What is the effect of valium on the body in terms of weight loss and the healing process after workouts? I know most people on here are worried about optimal health and this aids greatly in my falling and staying asleep so I only take these on an as needed basis but wondered if this would inhibit my weight loss and/or weight loss progression. Seems to me better to take the meds to ensure my sleep than go without it and possibly only get 4 to 5 hours of sleep. Thoughts?

Hey you! I agree. I have been on various "diazempam"-type things while losing weight and any issues I had were my own, not the drugs. I do prefer to not take them for my own reasons, but when I needed them, I was glad I had 'em.

I've wondered about this for the same reason with Xanax. Did t ask because I'm nursing and can't take it anyway.

In terms of weight, they probably won't cause a problem. I've managed to lose weight while taking a relatively high dose on a daily basis.

But, I feel I have to warn you -- if you take them on a regular basis and get addicted, it will be HELL getting off. Weight will be the least of your worries, and your gut will likely be messed up for a long time. Unfortunately, I speak from experience. :-P

I've never had problems taking valium-like drugs. In my experience they're useful and don't affect weight loss in normal doses (assuming occasional usage, non-habitual).
