Discussions that mention valium

Inner Ear Disorders board

Hi Fifty,

Sorry to hear you've been going through the wringer lately. Unfortunately everything you mention is pretty spot on for inner ear hassles - or migrainous vertigo. I know the waking in the night and freaking out all too well. Have you seen a neurotologist? It's important to be seen by one of these guys to work out how best to treat it. Be careful with Xanax. It has a short half life and could be causing rebound anxiety. If you need to take the edge off try valium instead. Same class of meds but more gentle and longer half life = no rebound. Use only occasionally though. Anyway, chase down a doc and you'll be able to get on top of it.

Best.....Scott :cool:
