1,006 Possible Causes for Ataxia, Diazepam

  • Benzodiazepine Overdose

    The most common symptoms of overdose include central nervous system (CNS) depression, impaired balance, ataxia, and slurred speech.[] Diazepam and nordiazepam were also each separately determined in 101 serum specimens from cases of diazepam overdose, including 27 cases from the aforementioned clinical correlation[] Ataxia was the most common clinical finding following benzodiazepine ingestion in this series.[]

  • Meniere's Disease

    Headache and ataxia may persist for days following an acute episode.[] The vertigo attacks were treated by oral isosorbide and intramuscular injection of low-dose diazepam.[] Hearing should be good in the opposite ear and there should be no ataxia.[]

  • Labyrinthitis

    Profound hearing loss, severe vertigo, ataxia, and nausea and vomiting are common symptoms of bacterial labyrinthitis.[] In addition, diazepam and other benzodiapines are also indicated.[] Severe truncal ataxia, defined as the inability to sit upright without the use of arms to stabilize, is predictive of a central lesion.[]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    The first patient (female, 50 years old) had dysarthria, nystagmus and trunk ataxia on admission. Her blood alcohol level was 2.3‰.[] However, lorazepam may be more effective than diazepam for treating alcohol-withdrawal seizures and status epilepticus.[] Diazepam, given 5 to 10 mg IV or po hourly until sedation occurs, is a common initial intervention; lorazepam 1 to 2 mg IV or po is an alternative.[]

  • Insomnia

    A 46-year-old man displayed involuntary movements during sleep time, snoring, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, cognitive deficit, brainstem symptoms, myoclonus and ataxia[] The apparent pA2 value for CGS 8216 antagonism of the discriminative stimulus effects of diazepam in rats was 5.74, -2.22 (reported in Shannon and Davis 1984).[] Drowsiness Difficulty concentrating Headaches Dry Mouth Nausea Frequent oversleeping Nightmares A “hangover” sensation Sedation Cognitive impairment Motor incoordination Ataxia[]

  • Depression

    This results in a high frequency of randomly distributed mtDNA mutations and thus a wide range of phenotypes, including seizures, neuropathy, and cerebellar ataxia [1, 2].[] RESULTS: Testing revealed an axonal sensorimotor polyneuropathy, depression and executive function difficulties, and asymmetric ataxia.[]

  • Stiff-Person Syndrome

    By contrast, GAD65-Ab from a patient with cerebellar ataxia (Ab CA) markedly decreased the NMDA-mediated turnover of glycerol.[] The baclofen was discontinued and the diazepam was tapered.[] By presenting this case, the authors would like to draw attention to the fact that one should think of the possibility of celiac disease when cerebellar ataxia, progressive[]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    Medications such as Valium (diazepam), Librium (chlordiazepoxide), or Ativan (lorazepam), members of the benzodiazepine family, are usually used for detox.[] ., diazepam, clonidine). *All medications have both common (generic) and brand names.

  • Head Injury

    National Ataxia Foundation : Information, resources and support.[] Hypertonicity Dantrolene, baclofen, diazepam, and tizanidine are current oral medication approaches to hypertonicity.[]

  • Nystagmus

    PAN can be caused by degenerative, neoplastic, or toxic diseases of the cerebellum and, in a few cases, by subacute cerebellar ataxia of immune origin.[] Vestibular nystagmus can be treated by diazepam or scopolamine.[] Furthermore, the patient did not have other cerebellar signs of pathologic nystagmus, such as gait ataxia or myoclonus.[]
