I was given this prior to an MRI due to claustrophobia. I've had many MRI's and can't go through one without the valium. Take one 45 minutes before, then I take 1/2 one 5 minutes before - it works.

Comment:
Diagnosed with clinical depression 20 years ago, I have been prescribed numerous antidepressants. The therapeutic benefits of these meds have deteriorated over the years and have been overridden by debilitating side-effects. Diazepam is the only medication that has been consistently efective over the years for allieviating anxiety and panic without the negative aspects. I take 5mg tabs 3-4 time ... Show Full Comment
