  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 5 mg Daily
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

  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
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).

Jan 16, 2014 (Started Jul 24, 2012)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Anxious mood: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle pain: Slight
  • 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.
