turn  I havent posted much or told anything about myself ,i have suffered with anxiety and panic for a long time ,i have been on xanax for a long time ,but i and my dr thinks its stopped working for me now ,Iasked my dr to let metry valium , i am on 0.5 but cut it in two half in morning and half at night, he is trying me on 2mg of valium  twice a day ,he said to cut in two if i wished ,i forgot to ask him about the difference in the dosage ,has anybody tried both of these. Ihave also been on synthroid for 2 months i have felt more nervous on it and shaky,had blood work done yesterday,butdr told me to stop taking it for now, has anybody been on synthroid and had side affects,i know a lot of people who take it but it works for them , i must say my body does not tolerate some meds including antidepressants.woul appreciate some feedback, thanks

Hey there, I take 2mg of Valium twice a day............I was up to 40 mg when my A & P and Depression were at the highest point in my life but I do well now on the total of 4 mg daily..........I take it when I need too.
Each person is different and will respond to the meds in their own unique way.
I wish you the best.
