Discussions that mention valium

Addiction & Recovery board

Valium was causing me an increase in anxiety after taking it for many years. Mostly took at bedtime to help me sleep and occasionally as needed for daytime. I'm off it about a month. Went through a withdrawal period. But....dr said I could take 2mg as needed for anxiety. Does anyone have a comment about this. I felt I needed it the other day but was afraid to take it. What should I do?
How were your withdrawls? We have heard so many awful things about valium was it horrible? I think if you use a drug as perscribed and do not abuse it then that's what they were made for. Does it have a negiative influence on your life? Those would be the questions I would be asking myself. Good luck. Hang in there.
