First, who give you these pills? What are they called? I would not recommend you take pills, but if you insist on taking pills, take only one
a half hour before speech. You need to see doctor before taking prescription pills because of side affects and interaction with other medicine your on.

They were prescribed by a doctor for a presentation I am giving. I took them a long time ago for a similar situation. When I got the prescription there were no instructions other than as needed and I have forgotten what the previous amount was.

I agree with Bucky. And if it IS in fact Valium 10mg you should DEFINITELY only take half. And I too have panic attacks and not every one individual are the same, especially getting up in front of crowds. So as long as you don't abuse drugs and you don't abuse "these" pills then I say you should definitely take something to help you through the anxiety. But like I said and Bucky said, only take half to see how it affects you so you won't be surprised with "noodle legs" in front of your peers! I hope this helped!

Well if theyre 10mg anti anxiety pills my bet is that theyre valium, but honestly theres no advice we can give you if we dont know what they are

as needed means one at a time through out the day leaving least 4 hrs in between.

congrats on getting off the Meds! But some people really cant handle public speaking. If the Valium helps then I think They should take them. While giving a speech is not a good time to try not taking your meds. Unless you know you can handle in normal everyday situations. So I say take them if you need them, but be careful, DONT TAKE TOO MUCH!
