Discussions that mention valium

Depression board

I have started taking lexapro but it gives me panic attacks occasionally. I've heard that this will go away after a couple weeks but for now i need relief.....I have valium and xanax but dont want any bad interactions. Can anyone give me some info? Thanks.
You can use xanax along with the lexapro, I was on both. I'm not sure about valium, but if it is a benzo like xanax, then it's safe to use, but don't use valium & xanax together. If they are both benzos, you would just be doubling the dose of one or the other.
all benzos go well with antidepressants and are useful for reducing antidepressant side effects
valium and xanax together are OK, IMO.
