Valium works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. It works on the brain and CNS ( Central Nervous System ) and produces a calming effect.
Overdose of Valium leads to drowsiness, loss of balance, limp or weak muscle, coma and respiratory problems, which may lead to death.
Stopping the intake of Valium 5 mg suddenly or accidentally can show some withdrawal symptoms. Some withdrawal symptoms are headache, sweating, tremors, difficulty concentrating, confusion, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, rapid heart rate, nausea, abdominal cramps and vomiting.
