    Do you know why you’re being prescribed diazepam? It’s usually a short term drug due to the fact it’s highly addictive.

    Diazepam is a sedative so it will make you drowsy. Other than that, and the fact it’s 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. It’s 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.

    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

    Ok then, if it’s a one off you should be absolutely fine. What’s the event?

    Something fabulous I hope?! My husband has used diazepam for this purpose before and it's really helped.

    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.
