... help but now my heart is beating very rapidly. I have never had panic attacks before so I'm not sure if this is from the Valium or if it is the panic attack reoccurring
Can Valium cause rapid heartbeat? I took 5mg of Valium about 12 hours ago for a panic attack, it did

Sometimes the valium can have a rebound effect when it wears off. In other words it can make the panic feel like it is worst once it is no longer in your blood stream. Valium is usually a short term med used for anxiety/panic. It is also a benzodiazepine which can build tolerance and dependence over time. Maybe talk to your doctor about other options for your panic attacks. Some people do well with therapy.
Hope you find what will work for you.
