Discussions that mention valium

Anxiety board

Not long at least for me 3-4 weeks at most. However it takes a lot longer to get unresisting to it. Why take it all the time ? A ssri or a other antidepressant makes sence.You become quickly resistant and when the attack occurs you will need more not to mention it is a addictive. Maybe I am wrong but I have severe anxiety but my physician has said take as needed for severe anxiety on the bottles. I had a real bad summer in 2002 and was taking valium almost every waking moment and even today after only taking 10 in the past year I need 2 10mg just to feel a little relief. Tired is so much better then a attack. Not saying your treatment is wrong, maybe mine is or I am . Most importantly what ever works for you. :eek:
