Medicine India is just a publishing medium for medicine related information and does not provide services or sales of medicines including diazepam.
However, we do publish a comprehensive directory of Pharmacies, Chemists and Druggists in cities all over India. You can use this directory to find the medicine stores in your city (or area) that provide home delivery services for diazepam and other medicines and health products. Home delivery services for diazepam may be free or they may cost you depending on the pharmacy and the minimum order requirements. It would be best to get this clarified while placing the order.
Please be aware that you should take diazepam only if a doctor has recommended or prescribed it. Some or all pharmacies who provide a home delivery service for medicines might insist on a prescription for diazepam before they complete the sale. You can get this information while placing the order for diazepam with the pharmacy.
Diazepam is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for diazepam might be better known than diazepam itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have diazepam in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for diazepam.
