I'm really concerned by something that is happening daily, i have diazepam in the morning then a second dose at noon,last dose at 10pm.
I used to take 7mg in the morning, 4mg at noon then 7mg at night, recently the morning dose was increased to 9mg, the rest are the same.
So by about 11am I already feel sleepy from the stress of struggling to go out and probably the morning dose of diazepam too.
I take the dose at noon and it makes me drift off to sleep even if i don't want to but within 10-20 minutes i am woken by awful racing heart, it slows down when i sit up but then comes and goes a bit.
I have been on diazepam for 17 years but the 2mg dose increase only happened about 9 days ago.
I don't know if it''s the diazepam making my heart race like that or the panic,i try to fight the sleepiness but it just overwhelms me and i drift off.
I am constantly on edge and worrying, feeling sad and scared so maybe it's a stress side effect but i am scared by this, does anyone else have worse racing heart if they nap in the day?
I need to try to stop napping but the diazepam affects me and i barely sleep at night so it's hard not to be tired.
