Advice & Tips: I was prescribed this as a nightly PRN originally at 10 mg. I did not want to develop a dependency, so I only took it a couple times a week when I needed good sleep. Sometimes I could even just take half and that would work, so I could check to see if I was developing a tolerance, and if so, I would stay off it for at least a week.

Advice & Tips: I Find that in very stressful situations this medication helps to slow down the mind, this helps me considerably. If taken excessively often i find that it does not work, it only works when really necessary. .. i also find that DIAZEPAM leaves a very bitter taste, advise plenty of liquid with this drug

Advice & Tips: Take it religiously or you get mixed up. I am now in a Care Facility with my husband. My MS, depression & constant, horrific pain from the scoliosis and his brain tumor with successful removal with damage leaving him having to use his opposite side & no balance and in a Wheelchair all the time have caused me enormous anxiety. It's a relief to not to worry about meds on time.
