Has anyone taking valium and it not help with the anxiety? I currently take 7.5 mg am and pm and have for 8 months for meiners and dr thought it should help with the anxiety and panic attacks but it doesn't, I have adverse affect with it. It doesn't make me tired or calm me down and I have also tried buspar and zoloft and still not helping with the anxiety/panic to the point where I don't go anywhere unless absolutely necessary.
