My doctor prescribed me 5mg diazepam for my anxiety, trouble is, I'm too anxious about taking them. What will it do to me and how long will it effect me? I work as a cleaner every day, I don't want to possibly hinder my ability to work.
How will 5mg diazepam affect me and how long will it effect me?

Hello ZwkeFaigan, I take 10mg of diazepam at bedtime only, my doctor prescribed it for muscle relaxation. I suffer from spinal stenosis in my neck and lower lumbar spine... in addition to Fibromyalgia. Valium makes you tired, relaxes you and usually last 4-6 hrs. !
Take care & be well
ZekeFaigan; Sometimes it's good to take the first time at home and see how it affects you. Almost always the first one well hit you a bit harder than the next one. Everyone is different on how long it last Just take as directed on bottle in most cases it well help from 4 to 6 hours. Could make you tired, dizziness,most common so you want to make sure you are clear from dangerous work or driving until you know how it affects you.
