I have suffered from severe panic and anxiety attacks for 20yrs been on xanax 2mg 4×daily without much success my dr just added 3 2mg Valium a day to the mix. im not feeling any relief... do I need a stronger dose... is there stronger than 2mg Valium?
This question has also been asked and answered here: Valium vs Xanax: What's the difference?
i also suffer from panic and anxiety attacks, the past some 20 yrs ago, and recently i lost my nana and am going full blown into this, and not liking it, my dr gave me xanax, never took it yet, kinda not wanting to add anything else into what im already tapering off of, percocet 10/325. i also go to therapy, which helps a great deal, maybe you could try that, i hope it gets better for you, hang in there, i know how it feels, like its controlling your life, today is day two that ive just cried like a baby, but it feels good and im able to release some of the feelings that i dont need.
Correct me if i'm wrong,but am i right in saying you are on 8mg xanax plus now 6mg of valium?? If that is right you are on a very strong dose of benzo's. Did your doc not recommend an anti anxiety like zoloft,lexapro,citraprolam,that works over time,they do take 4-6weeks before you notice a difference,but maybe suggest this to him/her,it may well work along side the xanax,instead of taking 2benzo's together,which can be dangerous.
Hope you get relief soon,hopefully someone else will be along to help answer your q better.
Yes, I was given 10mg of Valium to take at night to help sleep. I know there's 2mgs, 5mgs, and a 10mg of Valium that's taken oral. The hospital gives 30mgs eaither through IV or a shot. Im unsure if they have a table form of 30mgs, They use it that way in cases of really bad muscle spams or tension headaches as a muscle relaxer.
So, he prescribed you one bar scored into four, as a bar qid ( per day). And thenis adding 1/2 a 5mg valium tid(3 a day). You have been on it for this long, as your doc. did perscribe, there is no harm, try it, the valium will actually work well if you alternate and do a dose of the diazepam then a alprazoplam in the aternoon and the diazepam before bed with asnack to keep u sleep & not hugry so u get a good sleep. Thats what I do, and I fiddles with it a lot until i found this 'cocktail" worked the best... hope i wasnt o wordy, i work @ ahospital, tech (a vet clinic) ttyl good luck, best wishes
