For Muscle Spasm: "Preexisting spinal stenosis and diabetic neuropathy, then twisted back getting off a MRI table. Searing pain and unable to walk at all (normal is with a walker). Fell the next day and ended up in ER, 2.5 of valium and was able to self-transfer from bed to wheelchair to toilet etc. Dr took me off valium and put on tramadol and it does NOT work as well, am losing mobility now. Saving the remaining valium for very bad days while waiting to see a pain specialist. 76 yo, many physical issues, why can't they just treat based on quality of life at this point? With the tiny dose of valium (2.5 ,3x day) I can move. without it, I'm in agony."

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: "I love this medication and it frustrates me that it is shunned upon so heavily by most doctors and mental health practitioners. Its true the withdrawals can be incredibly bad but if not abused, this medication is a god send for those with anxiety. I have strong mood issues and while I try to meditate / exercise / eat small regular meals / keep busy and be active etc. which helps most days, sometimes it just doesn't cut it when I'm having a extreme anxiety and just need to relax. I was prescribed 5mg for travel (panic attacks flying) but I cut that in 1/4 and just take 1.25mg occasionally here and there when I need it. That's all you need and I find it does the job amazingly."

For Anxiety: "I struggled with severe anxiety disorder and panic disorder for five years before I finally had a nervous breakdown followed by a week of severe suicidal depression - I caved in and took the Valium I had in my drawer and it saved my life that week. The first one I took actually made me feel completely normal - something I hadn't experienced in years. I take it now when I feel really anxious. 2mg calms the anxiety and puts me to sleep. No side effects. I am wary of taking too much so only resort to them when desperate. They reduce my panics both mentally (rushing disturbing thoughts) and physically. I know I probably shouldn't say this but they are amazing. However I would rather raise my own GABA naturally. Doctors don't like prescribing?"

For Anxiety: "I've been on Benzos for 4 years now. My very first script was 0.5mg Alprazolam 3x daily. I expected it to be more effective, and it built a tolerance very fast. Then I got a Rx for 1mg Lorazepam 3x daily, worked better than Alprazolam. Then I got put on Clonazepam 1mg 3x daily. Worked WONDERS! But tolerance was the issue. My doctor introduced me to Diazepam, she said this benzo rarely raises tolerance on anyone. Took his word, got a script for 10mg Diazepam 4x daily. Now my life is SET. By far the best and most complete benzo. Thank you Diazepam!"

Valium (diazepam) for Meniere's Disease: "I have been dealing with symptoms of Meniere's Disease for 30 years and until three years ago no Dr. could properly diagnose the issue. When I was 5 years old I suffered a concussion, when I was 13 years old I suffered another concussion from a 90 mph fastball to the head. Shortly after the incident at 13 years old I started having intermittent & recurring symptoms of vertigo & hearing loss in my left ear (same side as both injuries). My parents thought I was a typical stubborn teen until they took me to have my hearing tested and found I had 30db of hearing loss. Two years ago I started experiencing unexplained falls and roaring in my ear. The Dr found 60 Db & said it is Meniere's. The Dr prescribed low dose Valium. It changed my life!"

For Meniere's Disease: "My vertigo was so bad that I could not stand up much less work or drive a car. My ear doctor gave me valium to treat the ear instead of surgery he did not think surgery would help after a month of vertigo. Afterwards I had a fear whether it will come back. For years I would avoid heights because my first vertigo was on the upper deck of the freeway. I will say people do not understand some one that has vertigo for a long period of time. The valium helped but so did therapy"

Valium (diazepam) for Muscle Spasm: "During my cancer treatment, valium was prescribed to me for muscles spasms. It only took about 10 minutes to start working, it has done the job very well for me. I've been able to do my physical therapy with minimal pain , and soon hope to be pain-free!"

Valium (diazepam) for Muscle Spasm: "Valium works for me I have a panic disorder and I was taking Ativan (Lorazepam) in the US. since 2004. And my psychiatrist changed it to Diazepam) 10 mg sometimes 5mg since I have lived in Manila,Philippines. I have to wean off Lorazepam for awhile since you can't just stop Lorazepam right away and there is no Lorazepam here in Manila. Diazepam is the answer so I have switch to it. It works really well.."

For Muscle Spasm: "I have suffered with sciatica and spinal stenosis for over 6 years. I have a pinched nerve and have a numb left foot and back of leg plus pain all the time. I also have TMJ and developed Trigeminal Neuralgia for which my Dr prescribed 2.5 mg Diazepam. Not only did it help with that problem but has given me relief from my back pain. My only regret is no doctors suggested this to me years ago. They could have saved me years of pain and misery. I just hope my Dr will always be willing to prescribe this for me."

For Muscle Spasm: "This completely saved me. I tried so many medications for my severe bilateral sciatica, and NOTHING was stopping the horrible pain and cramping. This medication (at about 5mg) gives me 90-95% relief. it is a complete miracle for me. May have saved my life. My only complaint is that it makes me quite drowsy all the time. I feel as though I am walking through water. Very lethargic. I do curse my so-called medical professionals for not suggesting it for 7 hellish weeks!!!"

For Night Terrors: "Without 5 mg. of Valium shortly before bedtime I awake in 20 minutes to two hours with an anxiety attack that keeps me up and yet unable to concentrate enough to read or even watch TV. With 5 mg. of Valium I sleep through the night! I've take it before bed for 10 years now. I've taken it once in the daytime three or four times a year (before a speech or flying) but otherwise have never gotten any kick out of it or craved it."

For Anxiety: "Valium has saved my life. I suffered from "neck tightness" that almost drove me to the point of insanity, which no doctor could diagnosis or understand. I thought there was no solution and had lost all hope. It turned out to be a psychological thing (anxiety disorder) but the Valium immediately alleviated my symptoms. I take the Valium when I feel my anxiety symptoms flare up. These days I don't need to take it that often, knowing its just anxiety"

For Anxiety: "Had a nervous breakdown years ago after coming off steroids. I was agitated, angry and so anxious I could not function, I did not want to do anything, I'd stay in my room and hide away due to strong feelings of anxiety! Diazepam allowed me to be able to leave the house, interact with friends and family who I would have avoided, go grocery shopping and cope in large crowds! Wonderful drug and remember, theres use and theres abuse..."

For Muscle Spasm: "I'm 20 years old and had a severe sports injury while lifting weights. I tore several muscles in my pelvic area, thigh area, and also developed nerve damage. I'm currently on Oxycodone daily. I also get SEVERE muscle spasms - spasms that feel like huge, tight knots and inflammation. My Pain Management doctor prescribed me 10 mg of Valium three times a day. It's wonderful for my muscle pain and spasms. It calms my body down completely, relieves the tightness, the throbbing, and diminishes my muscle pain. It's very mild yet effective, and doesn't make me groggy like other muscle relaxers I've tried."

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: "I have been on diazepam long term, started because of PTSD. It is a mild sedative if I'm relaxing I'll get tired, if I'm working I don't get tired I just feel no negative feelings. It really is a chill pill. I am in construction field now and no issues and if I take one before going to bed my back pain soothes (Valium is mild muscle relaxer) and I always seem to have pleasant dreams. Never had a bad dream since on Valium, but at the same time it isn't luxurious or fantasy dreams either. It has been a miracle drug for me. I do not like how doctors now like to avoid benzos. Valium is a great medicine. I take 30mg per day generic brand. Hope this helps someone."
