    This medication has saved my life. I suffer from chronic anxiety and no other medications have helped. I have tried so many. I started taking it 30 years ago and many Dr's have advised that I stop. I did stop for 1 year about 8 years ago and it was the worst year that I can remember.

    I use Diazepam for anxiety and insomnia a couple of days a week. Overall its a very effective medication but as with all benzodiazepines tolerance builds up over a few weeks and months. I find the anxiolytic effects remain fairly constant but with daily use its loses most of its efficacy at treating insomnia. Physically addictive so only use once or twice weekly now
