I was prescribed Valium many years ago, a low dose 2mg which I broke into quarters, it greatly helped me. Ten days ago I had a near panic attack which lasted for an hour, I took Bachs flowers to calm me, and my mother came to my aid. Since then I have had waves of anxiety and not been alone. I have the Valium but not taken them as yet, trying all Bachs and many herbal teas! I need to try and go out alone where I had the near attack to meet my grandchildren. Should I take the Valium? I am becoming anxious about going.
