How good is valium when you first take it?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was prescribed a few to perhaps deal with the amount of stress I have been going through.

It's reached a point that I am trying to beat it but it's not working. I hate resorting to medication normally even though I have been on mirtzapine for well over 2 years and still currently take it (45 mg)

Basically I have been feeling extreme numbness to a point that I feel like I am losing balance, losing sensation, losing sensitivity to touch and all of these are piling up on top of each other to the point I start feeling my anxiety spikes, hyperventilation, and the feeling of passing out.

I've been at my wits end for a couple of days now, I've been getting mentally exhausted extremely fast.

I went from being active to an extent to the lowest of lows extremely fast and I'm trying my best to break out of it but I'm sort of unsure about anything anymore..

I even told my psychologist that I need proper assistance or help to beat this because while I am going through this I am losing control.

      Yes I started taking only half of it.

      It helped to an extent I wouldn't say it did a whole lot but it definitely made me relaxed. However I started noticing a headache but that was probably due to me being tired

      Oh, and if I have a headache, valium makes it better - always. and Cia is right - drink lots of water.

      I'm currently tapering off valium, as I got addicted to it. For forty years.

      Get back to me and we can talk about this, Damien. xxxx

      Hey tess, 

      Thanks for being open about being on them for 40 years.

      I was only prescribed a few however received 50 of them. Only 5 mg. 

      I took half of one lastnight it definitely helped me relax.

      I am currently on mirtzapine but didn't take one lastnight because of taking the valium instead.

      I gotter be honest.. I feel like I'm losing life every single day and it doesn't seem to get easier. I haven't been able to feel safe or anything by myself which is odd because normally I would be fine. I'm just going through an extreme rough patch that I can't seem to break or shake out of at all and it's doing my head in. sad
