Today was my second one taking Valium for anxiety, the first time i took it was about 1 week ago, it was a 5mg broken in half so 2.5mg, the first time I took it it worked wondered made me feel amazing even had a joint and felt no anxiety what so ever, but this time I decided to lower the dose again so I broke the 2.5mg into 1.25mg, I had and it felt more anxious I felt the drowsiness come on but did not feel the anxiety go away at all, it just made me feel awkward and let down tbh, I then took another 1.25 1 hour later and it had no effect, I felt so weird, and it’s only my second time so it can’t be my tolerance?
Your 2.5 mg of Diazepam is a very low dose to begin with so I wonder if the first time you take it it was a placebo effect? So if the second time you take only 1.25 mg no wonder why you didn't feel anything. Diazepam is a low potency benzodiazepine... A 10 mg dose of Diazepam is about the equivalent dose of 0.5 mg of Clonazepam or 0.5 mg of Xanax...
