Questions and answers on "Valium"

Is it okay to take valium and zubsolv together? I read on-line that they are both often prescribed together because zubsolv adds to anxiety! I just wish to show my doctor proof of this since I am currently prescribed a low dosage of valium and was prescribed zubsolv by another doctor, and took both for a while and had no bad side effects. Zubsolv makes me speedy and sometimes anxious and the valium helped when I was really shaken up!

I’m in a pickle, scheduled for blood tests tomorrow for a aggressive condition of hives (see pic).

WWW.WWWW.WW

When it gets really bad ( all over my body) looks like this

WWW.WWWW.WW
and my heart starts pounding hard and fast. Will a Valium have that bad an effect on my blood work? I’m not sure I can hold out. I’ve been to ER twice in the last month.

Hello,
I have been out of work for 5 years and have not had medical insurance. I have been taking a friends valium and vicodin as I have an ulcer that I can't afford to get fixed. I've been to the ER multiple times, and was told I need a scope to see where the bleeding is. In short I'm in pain and my nerves are shot. I have to take a drug test tomorrow to try to get a job. I haven't taken any valium for at least 5 days, and have only taken one vicodin in 5 days. That was on Saturday. Should I try to delay the drug test? Now that I know I may be able to get work I won't take anymore. I'm not addicted and take them just when I need them. I have no withdrawals etc. Thanks for your time

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Valium is a sedative hypnotic which when taken in large doses will make you dependent on it and cause your brain to react in a depressed way. It is imperative to stop the usage of valium by gradually tapering yourself off of it under medical supervision....

Will valium become more effective over time? I know it is supposed to work instantly, yet I have been going up and down on doses for a few weeks now as I don't want to be on them. I do ok taking 5mg at night for a week, and then try to stop, or lower the dose, and end up a few days later needing 20mg just to stop a night time anxiety attack. Then I drop back to the 5mg for awhile do ok for a week, and again try to lower or stop...and the cycle continues. Is it better to just keep taking it at 5mg daily no matter what and leave it alone for awhile...husband and some web sites say that valium will become more effective if I take it daily to build up the same level in my body.

Hello my niece is having a lot of trouble at the moment. Last year she had a operation on her back called Spinal Fusion and once that healed she was pain free and medication free. About 2 weeks ago she began showing these symptoms: Severe lower back pain Loss of feeling and sensation in right leg - unable to weight bare on it at all. She says that her leg feels heavy. Pain up her spine which feels like it s a stinging sensation to touch. In the last week, obviously due to all of the pain she is really fatigued and decreased appetite. Her current medications are Oxycodone (Endone), Panadol, Brufen and last night commenced on Valium. They have done xrays of her back, cts and mri of back, and mri of her brain, and lumbar puncture, and copious amounts of blood tests. I realise that you wont know the results of those tests, but they are still saying that they have no idea what is going on. Please can you help. Adele
