Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: Valium worked wonders for me when I realized that my anxiety had been making me a shut-in with a low quality of life. Aside from developing an insatiable appetite at first, it seemed like a miracle. Example: I took a Valium before flying and could not find my luggage in baggage claim. Previously, I would have been shaking, crying and sweating. Instead, I confidently walked over to customer service and learned that my bag will come when the next flight arrives. Self-inflicted meltdown averted. It's long half-life, however, can be a blessing and bad. It lasts practically all day, but that also means it makes me a bit drowsy and lazy all day as well.

For Anxiety: Valium is absolutely wonderful. It will help people with sleep and anxiety, it also has quite a pronounced physical relaxation that I don't quite notice with other benzodiazepines like Xanax, making it useful for muscle spasms and uncomfortable aches. It's definitely the longest-lasting benzo that I've ever had, the sedation lasts well and truly into the next day, sometimes even longer (48 hours) but it fades by then.

For Meniere's Disease: I had episodes since I was 5 yrs old and none of the doctors I went to could help me. These episodes would last for 24 hours before I started to fell better. That would drain me mentally and physically. When I was 23 I was told that I had Meniere's disease and need to start on a low sodium diet no more then 2500 mg a day I'm 26 right now. That helped until I started to have a episodes three times a week and that was having a huge impact on my life. My doctor gave me Valium that I take three times day and that was a life saver in my view. I started taking it over a year ago and no major episodes yet.

For Anxiety: Diazepam has helped me a lot. It mostly helped me at night time to sleep, that's when I would take it. Now I am on a quarter and starting to take it every other night only when needed.

For Muscle Spasm: I had surgery on my back in my lower lumbar for stoniness. I am on Valium and Hydrocodone/acetaminophen and the medicines seem to work during the day but when I get up in the morning I can't feel my legs. I then take the medicines and about 30 min's later I'm okay. I still have the pain in the day but not as bad. I am also having erectile dysfunction. I hope this will go away after healing of the back.

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: Use of this medicine is to very effective in treating the illnesses for which it is prescribed. They will also admit that it is an extremely safe medicine to use. Valium when used by me, sporadically, as needed, effectively treats my anxiety episodes, which untreated would probably lead to ulcers.

Valium (diazepam) for Light Anesthesia: I was given one Valium tablet 20mins before my Lasik eye surgery and another one for later that day. It completely relaxed me for my procedure and on top of that acted as a very strong pain killer. Obviously it was used in conjunction with local anesthetic eye drops.

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: I've been taking Valium for two years now and really found it a lifesaver. I left my parents house and had to keep my old doctor (50 miles away) as I'm afraid if I join a new surgery they will want to pressurize me to come off my it, as I also receive 20 mg of temazepam to help sleep as well. I find most doctors very unwilling to prescribe benzo's.

Valium (diazepam) for Muscle Spasm: I'm a 32 yr young woman, who at the age of 11 was diagnosed with a severe spine disorder (scoliosis), it was also affecting my vertebra, they were turning in causing my ribs to crush my lungs. My doctor said I had a year or so to live. I was slowly suffocating. So at 12 yrs old I had 2 herrington rods put in on each side of my spine. From neck to tush! The pain then wasn't to bad, that I remember, but now at 32 some days I can't even move (WINTER-IDAHO). But 2 yrs ago I started using diazepam and at first I slept a lot, but as time has passed I have a great life. I myself cannot play sports but I can sit on a metal bench for 3 to 4 hours and enjoy watching my 4 boys play sports. Take as prescribed and tell your doctor if it's not helping.

For Anxiety: I am prescribed to take 10mg 3x a day, but find it only necessary to take a 5mg in the morning and a 10-15mg in the evening. That way, I can still function during the day and sleep well at night.

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: The best anxiety medicine I have taken and I have taken them all. Works very fast, about 20 minutes and keeps working. Also for me it is basically non-addictive. I can take it when I like and then stop for long periods if I want to. In fact I used Valium to get off Klonopin which was a nightmare to get off until Valium was substituted.

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: I was given a short course of valium 4x 2mg a day for 5 days. I needed a slight relaxant, as I was going through opiate withdrawals through no fault of my own. It seemed to work pretty okay, but I think for panic attacks and anxiety I would say you need a minimum of 5mg, as I don't think 2mg was enough to take the edge off it. A great medicine though.

For Anxiety: I would get really nervous around people and loud noise. I take 2 x 10mg a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. It helps a lot. I wish I would have been taking it years ago.

For Muscle Spasm: I have recurrent issues with herniated discs in my spine. In regards to pain management medicines I find this medicine outstanding. With the onset of severe back pain I find I only need take two per night for a couple of nights and the pain literally dissolves. I like diazepam because it does not make me feel trippy and there are no residual effects the following day. I actually don't feel any actual effects of it working. I simply wake up the next day and my pain is gone. I certainly do not feel any sense of dependency on it and happily stop and start dosage as needed. I would recommend this to anyone suffering similar issues.

For Anxiety: I have had trouble sleeping for over 25 years and about 10 years ago started having panic or anxiety attacks in the morning. I tried Xanax, the side effects made me depressed and angry. Valium has always worked well with little or no side effects. I take 5mg in the morning and 10 mg at bedtime and this works great. I have been on the same dosage for about 9 years and have had no problems. I would highly recommend this as opposed to Xanax or other benzodiazepines.

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: I have generalized anxiety disorder and I only take Valium as needed. When I am going to do something that will make me particularly anxious (e.g. a date with a girl) I take 3mg. It helps me to be myself.

For Anxiety: I have suffered with anxiety and panic for years, since about 14 y/o. I have tried several different benzodiazepines over the years but always go back to diazepam. I can use it for both preventing a panic attack before a specific situation, or use it to relieve one once it's started. You can even take it the night before a specific event for nervous insomnia. Diazepam calms me down without tiredness or feeling spaced out.

For Anxiety: I have been taking three 5mg Valium per day for the last four years. It has worked wonders for me. I haven't changed the dosage and have had no reason to increase it. Before I started this course, I would literally worry when I would get nervous. I don't even feel it in any way when I take it, but don't get anxious and am able to make decisions that I can't when I'm so nervous.

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: I'm only 15 years old, but I've been suffering from anxiety to the point of near-suicide, and Valium has saved my life more than once. I currently take Cymbalta daily, and Valium whenever I need it (roughly 5 times per week) , and I have now been able to return to living a normal life. (I had to quit school for a little while). I would recommend this medicine to absolutely ANYONE who suffers from frequent anxiety, it may permit a better lifestyle.

Valium (diazepam) for Light Sedation: For instant light sedation Valium is the number one choice. It is fast acting even in small dosages like 10mg but for full effect 20mg is preferred. Though it can lead to unwanted dependency after a few weeks so beware.

Valium (diazepam) for Muscle Spasm: Did little to relieve spasms radiating through leg muscles from lumbar stenosis, which it was prescribed for. Most notable effect was erectile dysfunction.

Valium (diazepam) for Anxiety: Before I had all kinds of problem like stomach aches and I was scared of everything and I lost 45 pounds. I have been taking Valium for about 10 months and I have gained almost all my weight back and I have no more problems at all.
