... valium 5mg to take 2 times a day. I only take 1/2 in the am and 1/2 in the pm because scared of the horror stories Ive heard. I know to drink plenty of water and eat right and have studied how to fight this crap but tend to wake up with and go to be d with the fast heart and just feeling like crap with all the usual feelings. The doctor put me on lisinopril for high blood pressure but I think its my anxiety. The doctor has considered paxil or lexapro and Im trying to find out which is the better medicine with least side effects. Im not a pill person so would appreciate any comments. Thanks and have a blessed day^^^
