I broke my neck and wrenched all the nerves and muscles on the right side of my neck. I also have knees that eventually will have to be scoped. I've tried every OTC there is for sleep, and have been prescribed valium which works wonderfully to allow normal sleep, and when taken in the morning, I don't have the pain as much in my knees and in my neck. I've gone through the gambit of prescribed medications to address sleeping and never had a problem with valium. I'm nearly 60 years old and healthy. I take blood pressure medications. I am prescribed 5mg oxycotin (spelling?) and only take it when warranted. I don't like drugs, but I also don't like extreme pain, or absolute fatigue (caused by the pain). Valium works. What do you think?
