Hi Claire-12_12

Thank you for your enquiry on Children with CP.

First of all, Diazepam is used to treat anxiety disorders, alcohol withdrawal symptoms, or muscle spasms. Diazepam is sometimes used with other medications to treat seizures. Hence, it is a type of drug which can lead to addiction if taken in long term. Therefore I recommend you to consult psychatrist about further prescription :)

Please let me know if you have any other question!

Thank you :)
