Discussions that mention valium

Anxiety board


Dancer,

I recommend tried and true diazepaam (Valium) over Xanax. It is really good for anxiety even if your doctor looks at you like a "junkie" when you mention it.
They always like when you mention MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE drugs instead.
For a real oldie, meprobamate is also quite good.
Oops, I forgot one thing.....my doctor does believe that if you have an anxiety disorder, you really don't become addicted to a benzo. He says when you are really and truly anxious and not just stressed, that the effect of xanax is totally different than for someone that is not. So, he may be open to the xr. I don't know about the valium....I don't want to be totally sedated, just have something to take off the edge.
