Diazepam is a type of drug called a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines are mild tranquilizers, producing a calming effect on those who take them. But did you know that diazepam can do much more than just that?

How is diazepam used?
Diazepam is available in a variety of different forms. Pills, injectable solution and suppositories are the most common. It can be used to treat pain, anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizure disorders.

What are diazepam suppositories? 
Diazepam suppositories are custom compounded in a special base for vaginal or rectal delivery.

Diazepam suppositories are often prescribed to people with seizure disorders. Many of these individuals are children or take other drugs for seizure control. During a seizure episode, a diazepam rectal suppository can be given quickly, safely and effectively to control seizure attacks. They are not intended for long-term use.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction 
Compounded diazepam suppositories are sometimes used to treat pelvic floor dysfunction and vulvodynia. Vaginal diazepam has been shown to reduce pain without the unwanted side effects associated with oral diazepam.
