    Do you know why youíre being prescribed diazepam? Itís usually a short term drug due to the fact itís highly addictive.

    Diazepam is a sedative so it will make you drowsy. Other than that, and the fact itís addictive, it has minimal side effects.

    It definitely helped me cope with my anxiety, and with chronic pain that I suffer but your body quickly tolerates it so you need more to get the same effect itms. Itís also very hard to come off. It took me over 6 months .....

    I agree with Paula, it's not normally used as a long term option.
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    hey paula.

    it is being used to help me cope with a social event coming up sometime in a few weeks

    hopefully it was a good choice on my doctor's part

    Something fabulous I hope?! My husband has used diazepam for this purpose before and it's really helped.
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.

    Hope it helps. I have taken it in the past but only for short times. Probably max 5 days at a time. Good luck with the event.
