Re: mri scan, please help
When you are in a high state of anxiety and you take a benzo like valium, or xanax, you don't feel weird or altered, you just feel either normal because the drug brings down your anxiety, or you might feel a little sleepy.
I'm surprised your doctor said you would have panic if you took it...maybe it's because you expressed extra anxiety over the idea of taking this medication. In my opinion, you would feel much better in the MRI scanner if you take this medication, but I'm not a doctor. If you take it, it will be out of your body in about four hours, so you could just keep that in mind.
