... my anxiety or panic at all. It was prescribed for meiners which I think it helps somewhat. Anyone else take valium and zoloft. What are side effects? I don't know why I started having these attacks about 8 months ago although I have a lot of stress in my life. I used to be a people person but now I don't hardly leave the house unless I really have to. I have to talk myself into going and tell myself it will be ok and that still doesn't help. I have attacks when I shower, it's getting out of control and I feel helpless.
I took Zoloft for anxiety and it worked wonders. You will need to take the Valium for a bit yet and then you will need to wean off the valium slowly but once the Zoloft kicks in that won't be too bad.
Expect to feel overheated for awhile when weaning off the valium. It is a benzo and even once you are off it completely you still get too hot for about 3 months afterwards. If you are lucky you can do this during the winter. I went off my benzo in June so it was a really hot sweaty summer for me.
Hope that helps.
