Discussions that mention valium

Depression board

I'm on prozac at the moment but have just been prescribed with valium today as i am so tense and have pains in my chest e.t.c.

Anyone have any experience of valium? So far, no effect.

Thanks for listening.
Valium (Diazepam) is a tranquilizer. It's usually given for muscle spasms, anxiety and in rare cases to sleep.

I've used it but only recreationally. It makes me very relaxed and puts me in a general good mood. It's very good for anxiety (and muscle spasms) but I've not had much success with it for depression. It helps with withdrawal from some meds though, but it itself causes physical withdrawal symptoms.
