Ok so, I have GAD which has been successfully treated with CBT & EMDR Therapy. Now I have to get on a 14 hour flight for holiday. I'm scared that I will have a panic attack onboard the aircraft again (Ex flight attendant so not scared of flying, just scared of panic attack on board) If I take 2 x 5mg tablets of Valium prescribed by my dr will it prevent me from having a panic attack. I find myself feeling calm but still anxious after taking the Valium. Ive not taken any medication before ever so its nothing to do with resistance to the drug. I'm a 29yr old fit healthy male.
I think a quick acting benzo such as xanax or ativan would work better for a panic attack as long as you only take them short term
Hello. I agree with another respondant in that you'd be better off taking an Ativan, or Xanax. You'll only quite literally need two tabs: one to get there and one to get back home. Please don't ask for more as these two are literally the King and Queen of Benzo's. Valium calms me down but not enough to keep anxiety at bay totally. Good luck!
