  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 2.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It works well. However, due to the amount of meds I need to take overall, in the (roughly) last year or so, my care team (including myself), at my request, has been working to gradually decrease the dosage and frequency of this med taken in the daytime for anxiety and muscle spasms. I also take a scheduled dosage of this med at bedtime to help with insomnia, however since this system won't allow me to enter the same med twice (at a different time and dosage and for a different purpose), I added the same med at bedtime on a scheduled dosage by using the brand name (Valium).

  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle pain: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Sometimes I actually get increased energy. I think because it helps decrease the pain & stiffness. I only experience the fatigue if I'm suffering insomnia, but it is also the only thing I've found that helps with that as well and I don't feel groggy & hungover the next day.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 6 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Fasciculatons had gotten so bad that they would keep me awake. I had argued with my health care workers for months about anxiety meds. I wanted Xanax or Ativan and they wanted me on Paxil. I kept buying Xanax on the street, finally they agreed to give me Valium (Diazepam). My Fasciculations got much better. I still have them but it's much much better now.
