Fear of flying Diazepam 5mg. Does it work?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi,

After suffering a panic attack last year on a flight back from Las Vegas I have since been absolutely terrified of flying to the point it makes me shake thinking of it. I have been perscribed 2x 5mg diazepam tablets and am wondering if they actually work? How will I feel? Any help would be appreciated x

    I have a horrible fear of flying and I have used Xanax and Ativan and it does work well.

    Diazepam doesn't do much for me personally but I know a lot of people that swear by it. Says it instantly relaxes them and their muscles
