Hi
Out of hospital went with the doctors drugs groups but was forced to take valium.  No one knows but i could not take the panic attachs.  This my sixth hospital visit will still no sucess.  Each time had to take some valium which i too for 30 years this time sneak it when servere attachs occour.
 
Has anybody else found they could not shake the valium and have some suggestions for another drug.  I dont like doing this but nothing is controlling the anxiety.
 
i HAVE GOT OUT THE HOUSE A LITTLE
 
Any suggestion appreciated

Dear Ken,

Good Morning!  I am glad your out of the hospital. As for the Valium, why should you have to sneak it if you need to take a prescribed amount.  I am weaning off Valium but I will be requesting to be on something as I am down to 6 mg per day now and I have used a benzo for 25 years.  Now they decide it is not good for me.  eyes  

I have cooperated but I am feeling the effects of not having a morning dose as I kick into anxiety very easy in the morning so I am taking 2 mg in the morning and 4 mg at bedtime.

I think you should be allowed to use it as needed.  However I also feel you need to retalk this with your Pdoc.

Bless you.

Dear Ken,

I understand how you feel. eyes

There is absolutely no doubt that anyone withdrawing from long-term benzodiazepines (Valium) must reduce the dosage slowly.

The decision to withdraw is also the patient's decision and should not be forced by the doctor.

The rate of tapering should never be rigid but should be flexible and controlled by the patient, not the doctor, according to the patient's individual needs which are different in every case.

Reference: C. H. Ashton, January 2007

Hugs to you and stay with us, we are your support.
