Does Anyone Take Valium?

Does Anyone Take Valium?

I am taking 10mg Valium. Sometimes i take 15mg to help me sleep better. Who else takes Valium and how many milligrams?

I wish I could have been diagnosed when I was young because I too feel I would have been able to make better decisions in my life

I take 1mg of Clonazepam in the morning and I’ve been on that dose for about 10 years now, sometimes I have to take a half or whole tablet at night depending on how bad my anxiety is. My script actually says take 1 tablet 3 times a day but it makes me drowsy

I take Xanax despite the warnings and negative publicity it has gotten. It helps me with my GAD and I plan to stay on it for the rest of my life. Just like my antidepressants I have no desire to stop taking them. I wish I had been prescribed these meds as a young adult. I believe I would have had a better quality of life

I took Valium in the 1980's for anxiety. In 2007 I started having really bad panic attacks and was prescribed Xanax. I thought I was having a heart attack once it was so bad, went to the ER!

My panic attacks aren't as bad now and I only take the Xanax to control my GAD and to help me sleep at times, which my doctor is aware of. I am prescribed 3 two mg tablets a day but most days I'd sleep if I took that much now, my anxiety is so much better. When a bad panic attack does hit, it sometimes takes 2 tablets to calm it down.

My 40 year old son has been part of the cause for panic, especially since he tried to kill me in 2011. He is locked up now for stabbing someone else but may be released in March. I don't think he should be, but I will be okay if he is. I have a huge support system in terms of the number of people I know that know exactly how my son is. There are those who would like to do bodily harm to him for what he's done to me. His father died in 2012. My son thinks I should just get over it and forget it and I cannot.

It sounds like the Valium is helping you @A MyDepressionTeam Member. I think about you from time to time and wonder how you are doing. Take care,
Sharon

I was prescribed Valium to help reduce my heartbeat and it gave me horrible nightmares. They tried clonazepam which helped much better!
