  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: For some reason (possibly a side effect of the Lyrica, possibly just fibro) I sometimes wake in the night with a burning desire to stretch everything, and when I stop stretching any muscle it insists of being stretched again. I writhe on the bed and it's torturous. The valium does wonders for getting my muscles to chill out and has the added benefit of helping me fall (back) asleep.
Cost: < $25 monthly

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
