    Diazepam for Anxiety?

    I've recently been prescribed 2mg of diazepam for anxiety. My doctor instructed me to take one tablet before bed for three consecutive days, and then to take as needed. I've never taken anything for anxiety and I'm a bit anxious to take this medicine. I was wondering about the experiences that others have had with this medication. I'm a little bit nervous to take it because when I was a kid my other doctor told me I had asthma and I had to use an inhaler for a while. I haven't used an inhaler in years and I've read online that it can make the symptoms of asthma worse. If anyone has taken this, how have you felt while on the medication and did you experience any of its side effects? Thank you in advance for your responses!

    It should make you drowsy and relaxed! Which before bed is a good thing!

    Hi there, sorry to hear the medication in itself is causing you anxiety

    Diazepam is a wonderful medication when used the right way for anxiety. It will make you nice and relaxed and help you to sleep. Once you are a little more used to it, it can be used during the day to ease the anxiety without putting you off to bed at the same time which is possibly why your doctor is getting you to take it of a night to begin with

    All the best!
