Hi! I'm a 26 y o male who has suffered with anxiety for around 6 years. It's gradually got worse - unaided by work stress, a bad relationship break up and losing a stepchild.
I have today been given 28 x 2mg tablets to take as and when required along with an SSRI and beta blocker.
I know people who have taken diazepam to relax at much higher doses (my ex girlfriend was on 10mg tablets) but would like to hear from some people with an expierience of lower dose (2mg) usage. In Particularly related to anxiety and Panic attacks.
Evening Dulciana sorry nobody has answered you!! diazepam was one of the first benzo drugs known as Valium brand and yes it does help relive the stress and junk you have been going through I DID notice with this one sometimes i would get a slight buzz high feeling at first but goes away pretty quick then just enough to take the edge off.Your on very simular meds as I am it does take several differnt meds to get us the relief we need. Just remember SSRI can take 4 to 6 weeks to get the full benifits of the medication and the beta blockers help with stuff like racing heart beat caused by the anxiety God knows you should have with all i see your going through.also the beta blocker helps with anxiety.Just make sure you take as directed no more and watch for alcohol
Sorry Dulciana I missed a couple things yes it should help with your eating habits,And also your doctor sounds like he she knows what they are doing with Diazepam its always best to start with the smallest dose and increase slowly if needed.Or change to one of the newer type benzo's which seem to stay with you longer. Please don't be upset nobody answered you I just figured out a way to find these unanswerd questions so please post anytime and repost if nobody answers you no excuse to have to wait this long for a member to answer you..this is not the sight im on all the time but i well make it a habit to come in more often hope i was able to help you some..your not alone
