My dr. prescribed 5 mg 3x day. I think it's really helping with anxiety and racing thoughts, but it's making me soooooooo sleepy. Will this go away? Should I just take 10mg at night instead? I also take Celexa in the mornings.

Unfortunately valium doesnt work that way. Its a fairly short acting drug, so you have to take it regularly to get the effects to be constant. You will eventually build up a tolerance to the drug, and it will lessen the sleepiness, but it will also lessen the other effects you get from the medicine (anti anxiety, racing thoughts, etc). Taking a double dose at bed time wont do anything but put you to sleep even more.
