Discussions that mention valium

Panic Disorders board


I saw spots with my anxiety too. Basically from what I've found, anxiety/panic can make you feel anything that a physical illness could cause. Go to the docs, get the usual blood tests and stuff, and see if you can get on an antidepressant, or maybe a lower dose of a valium type med. Really, that's how I figured out I had anxiety, the doc said, before he put me on the antidepressants, to try ativan for a few days. I did, and it worked, I felt great. Then I was sure it was anxiety causing all my problems. Now I'm on effexor XR and I take ativan very rarely as needed. I feel great.
