    Diazepam for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    Starting with 5 mg, then constant dose increase was necessary to achieve a desired calming effect. Side effects: impaired vision and memory, mood swings and increased nocturnal waking, as well as strong nightmares. Restlessness during the day. After 8 years of withdrawal made – I would like to recommend None!

    Diazepam for Psychosis; Sleep disorders

    I take Abilify since it came to Germany in the market since 2004. I have all neuroleptics through and suffered by strong overweight of Leponex and Zyprexa a heart attack at 24 years. Suffer from muscle atrophy from neuroleptics. This means my heart muscle value ck mb and ck are increased by 30- 50 times when I take another neuroleptics. I had to spend 1 year every day in the psychiatric blood checks to find out which neuroleptics makes any of these muscle increases. The only one was Abilify. The rest could have devastating consequences. I need someone with a lot of experience because I’m at a loss. With Abilify I had strong restlessness, fears, sleep disturbances. Yes, even the sexual behavior became stronger, which actually makes me happy because all other neuroleptics made me impotent. Insofar I am glad that I may have sex again. Nevertheless, Abilify is not the solution. I could not stand the side effect, so I took benzos, that is diazepam. The fears disappeared, the restlessness and I could sleep. Meanwhile, I take 20 mg diazepam a day and it does not work properly anymore. I know that it makes you addicted, but I have not endured the conditions of Abilify. By taking Diazepam for years I feel like I’m in the head. Totally shielded and slowly I feel like dumb. I can not think correctly anymore, but that also happened with abilify. I can not take any other medication due to my heart attack and my muscle increases. It’s like a vicious circle, I can not get out of it. I am now psychosis free for 5 years and do not want to go back to the clinic just to test what suits me. I am already experienced. I would prefer to withdraw the diazepam and completely depose neuroleptics, and then just live again. There is still a difficult road ahead of me. I can tell anyone to take Benzos only on time that means as long as necessary, which does not make it dependent. And if you do not agree abilify others try to stay stable.

    Diazepam for Epilepsy

    The effect of Diazepam is generally good, but I expressly warn against development of addiction after prolonged (over a maximum of 4 weeks) ingestion. When the preparation is discontinued, restlessness, anxiety and muscle pain / muscle twitching occur frequently. The latter is not yet listed in the leaflet. After discontinuation, anxiety symptoms appeared again more strongly.

    I’ve always known that benzodiazepines can make you addicted quickly. Since one with a borderline personality tends to develop addiction often, I try to get along with extreme anxiety and restlessness with Truxal (neuroleptic – calming) (I take a constant antidepressants). However, when I had a particularly lengthy and severe borderline episode 2 years ago, I had to resort to diazepam, but dosed (at home) relatively low (5 mg / day). As my mental state continued to worsen, I was hospitalized and (in addition to other psychotropic drugs) on 10 mg diazepam / day set. The drug works really well against many severe anxiety and panic attacks, but unfortunately, the dose must be repeatedly increased to achieve a consistent effect. The only side effect with me was a little tiredness, which I found relaxing. When I arrived at 30 mg / day, I set myself the limit to go back slowly in 5 mg steps after a week !!! to dose down. It worked pretty well too. I stayed at 5 mg / day for a long time, but terrible was the last step to 0.0 mg / day: paralyzing anxiety and extreme mood swings that I probably just kept up with because I always go to my best friend (who has had benzoin for 10 years). depends). Since then I take Valium only as a single dose in an emergency – which fortunately works for me without renewed dependency.

    Diazepam for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    Acts very fast and reliable. Good if you have post traumatic stress. If you can handle it, then you never increase the dose and a dependency will hardly arise. Of course, the effect is even better with every tablet. That’s just the addiction that arises. If you have that under control, you’ll be fine.
