I have tried every benzo for my constant severe anxiety (not attacks just constant state of anxiety 24/7) except Valium. I don't wAnt to fall asleep just mellow out Calm down and be able to think can this help
Hello if you have Generalized Anxiety Disorder like I do Benzodiazepines will not be a long-term help. Are you taking any other medicine maybe you could try an antidepressant for your GAD and a benzo for those times where it is hightened. As for your question Valium didn't help quell my anxiety when I took it. Right now I am taking Lorazepam and even though is relaxing I really have to have a certain level of relaxation for it to work. I use it only to sleep though.
Have you ever tried buspar? You take it everyday, and helps prevent anxiety.
