Default What you probably don't know about Valium

Valium abuse and drug abuse in general costs us more than $484 billion annually. This includes lost job wages, health care costs, accidents, crime and other costs.

Default Diazepam

hi

Not sure if I have a problem .... yet. For the last six months I haven't had a ciggie and have used patches, pills, any thing that is going. Well the pill "Quit something" ran out and I have started taking diazepam to kill the bad moods that happens from time to time. First I ordered the diazepam from India and when I told my doctor where I was getting it from he wrote out a script and gives me as much as I need.
I believe now I depend on diazepam a little bit and find I'm taking 1 by lunch and 1 at night to sleep.
My question ...Is it harder to give up diazepam than ciggies. I have never had any other addiction before. Have tried everything at least once and the only thing that got me was ciggies and now I believe diazepam.

In my own experience, I have taken diazepam from the past for 2 years. That is when I am working graveyard shift and I find it difficult sleeping at daytime. So I took 2 mg at first. Then after 3 months, that 2mg that I usually take doe not effect me anymore. Then the dosage went higher.

I only recovered after seeking help from a professional. My total recover time is almost a year. It is just so hard to quit once your body get used to it. Sleeping well is really that important that's why I got addicted.

how do you get these imaginary statistics. I have been on valium for 34 years, started with 5mg 3 A DAY AND NOW TAKE 5MG 2 A DAY. Kept me going as i suffer from panic attacks. Driving all my life and never had an accident (40000 klms per year). I think a lot of bad press on this drug is made up by self opiniated people who have little else to contribute to society.i believe like most hypnotic drugs (LEGAL OR ILLEGAL) they are mis-used by some people. This does not give people who really dont know what they are talking about to run down a drug which is helping so many people. Love other opinions on this. Thanks.
