I currently take Valium 10mg 3x a day for treatment of severe anxiety that has not been responsive to SSRI treatment. Sometimes I feel as if 10mg 3x a day isn't quite enough to handle my daily anxiety, and I have considered discussing increasing the dosage with my psychiatrist. Also, taking a pill 3 or more times a day seems burdensome. I have heard of Valrelease - which is, best of my understanding, extended released Valium. My understanding is that these pills come in 15mg capsules. Generally speaking, what's the maximum daily dose that a psychiatrist will prescribe of Valrelease for a 230 pound man with an extensive history of anxiety, depression, and unsuccessful treatments? PS - Please don't post any nonsense or unhelpful answers like "talk to your doctor." Obviously, I AM going to talk to my doctor about this, but I just want some idea of what to expect before my next appointment.

Normal doses go to 4 x 10 mg a day. With your weight (like mine:-) you could probably go to five or six a day. The problem is you will build up a tolerance; it is almost like using alcohol to treat AD. I also am one of the people that valium makes nervous and edgy, aside from drowsy....... The doctor would probably put you on 2 x 15 mg of valrelease....... maybe 3 x 15 mg. This really is only a (or should be) a short term solution. It can be really nasty to get off of after as little as just a week. Good luck, .. Answered by Earlean Rameriz 2 years ago.

Addicted to diazapam, under shrink, but need advice.?
25 mg a day but growing
Asked by Sonia Clowes 2 years ago.
Definition Diazepam is an antianxiety medication that is also useful in the treatment of muscle spasms and some types of seizures. The drug belongs to the class of medications known as benzodiazepines that depress activity of the central nervous system. Purpose Diazepam, which is marketed under the brand names of Valium, Diastat, T-Quil, and Valrelease, is taken by millions of people to relieve feelings of anxiety. As well, the drug can lessen muscle spasms and can control some types of seizures. Diazepam is also used to therapeutically lessen the agitation caused during alcohol withdrawal by someone who is physically addicted to alcohol. Additionally, diazepam is used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and to lessen the symptoms of panic attacks. Description Diazepam is supplied as a tablet, as a capsule that releases the active drug at a slower rate, or as a liquid. All three of these forms of the drug are taken orally. The time-release capsule should be swallowed whole. Diazepam should be stored at room temperature in a tightly closed container to avoid alteration in the compound due to excessive heat or moisture. Valium is also available in an injectable form. Recommended dosage Diazepam dosage is determined by a physician taking into account the nature of the problem, severity of the symptoms, and the person's response to the drug. Typical adult doses range from 2–10 mg taken two to four times a day. Children and elderly adults will typically receive 1–2 mg one to four times daily. The dosage of diazepam typically prescribed by a physician is taken anywhere from one to four times each day, depending on the strength of the individual dose. This maintains the concentration of the drug at a therapeutic level, as diazepam is quickly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Peak levels of the drug are reached within a couple of hours after administration, with levels dropping below therapeutic effectiveness within six to eight hours. Diazepam can be taken with or without food. The liquid form can be mixed with other fluids or select foods such as applesauce. Precautions The recommended dosage should not be exceeded, nor should it continue to be taken after the prescribed time. Such abuse can lead to a dependence on the drug, or the establishment of tolerance. As the effectiveness of diazepam is related to its concentration, it is important to take the drug regularly. Doses should not be skipped as this could lead to a worsening of the symptoms. Diazepam should not be taken with other central nervous system depressants such as narcotics, sleeping pills, or alcohol. The combinations could lower blood pressure and suppress breathing to the point of unconsciousness and death. Persons taking diazepam should exercise extreme caution when driving or operating machinery. These activities should be avoided during periods of drowsiness associated with diazepam therapy. Pregnant and breast-feeding woman should not take diazepam, nor should someone with myasthenia gravis. The drug should be used cautiously in those with epilepsy, as diazepam may trigger an epileptic seizure. Side effects Some people are allergic to diazepam. In this case, other drugs can be substituted. These include alprazolam (Xanax), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), and triazolam (Halcion). Common side effects from diazepam include drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, headache, fatigue, muscle weakness, memory loss, skin rash, diarrhea, dry mouth, stomach upset, decreased sexual drive, and an altered appetite. Less common side effects include jaundice, decreased white blood cell count (leukopenia), insomnia, hallucinations, and irritability. Interactions Diazepam can interact with other prescription medicines, especially antihistamines, as well as cimetidine (Tagamet), disulfiram (Antabuse), and fluoxetine (Prozac). Additionally, interaction can occur with medications given for the relief of depression, pain, Parkinson's disease, asthma, and colds, and with muscle relaxants, oral contraceptives, sedatives and sleeping pills, tranquilizers, and even some vitamins. In general, the result of the interaction is to increase the drowsiness caused by diazepam. Answered by Ana Hoben 2 years ago.
Don't dump your pills in the toilet, please! The fish and frogs are getting deformed because of all the pills people are flushing!! (No lie, the United States Geological Survey did the study, and I'm sure it's a problem in other developed countries). You will have to search online for info on breaking your addiction. Be aware that you will have rebound anxiety and insomnia, you may get restless legs syndrome, which is maddening. Anxiety reducing things that worked great for me: turn up the heat in the house a few degrees, it's hard to be anxious when you are overwarm. Use a passive muscle relaxation/guided imagery/meditation tape. They seem silly at first, but they work!! You might need to try a couple of them. Let your psychiatrist know that you are concerned, and ask for tapering off instructions. Don't cold turkey it, or your rebound symptoms will be worse. Good luck!! Answered by Maryetta Pobre 2 years ago.
I have a similar problem with Xanax and want to get off it but it scares me not to have that safety net, it just seems things have been easier since I started taking them but as you're probably aware it's really not. In the beginning .5mg pill was enough and now well I take a lot more but as far as I know not enough for an overdose. The addiction creeps up on you and the need for more does too. I'm not one for going cold turkey with anything and I don't see this case as an exception, it generally just increases your chances of going back on them. Basically try to slowly ween yourself off them and try not to feel like a failure if you rebound because I've been there and that feeling just makes you feel worse and doesn't help at all! Talk to your shrink about it and they'll probably tell you something similar but please do it anyway because they're the professionals after all. If you start to feeling the side effects of coming off them try and use methods to handle it like distraction, relaxation techniques but I just try not to replace it with another crutch. One time I was without my pills for days and used booze instead and while it helped me sleep I felt crap. Answered by Star Okajima 2 years ago.

Hold your breath for twenty seconds and think of something fun you did when you were a child.

I feel that there is always a natural alternative and some people think they need to take antidepressants etc. Because they do not know what is really wrong with them. All to many times doctor's prescribe these meds instead of seeking out the true issue's. I can't see how it would aid spiritual work only confuse it and hinder it. Like I said I so believe there is always a natural alternative. Prescription drugs mean dependency on a man made substance and stops the user from making life changes to enhance there well being.

(I use the brand names here, because they are easier to type and remember) Antidepressants (mostly SSRIs) : Lexapro (most likely the top selling psychiatric medication currently), Prozac, Zoloft, Wellbutrin... Antianxiety: Xanax (it should not be prescribed so much; very risky), Ativan, Klonopin, Valium... I should include atypical antipsychotics and anticonvulsants, but I can't think of them right now. The top two catagories are by far the most common anyway and cover a large number of disorders. Answered by Eldora Vibert 2 years ago.

I'm on klonopin now for a week and it hasn't helped me much yet.?
i was just wondering for people out there, if they think valium or xanax are better for anxiety or would u recommend anything else. i'm goin to see my doctor soon so i wanted to talk to him about what medication i should switch to or if i should stay on klonopin for a litle longer?
Asked by Latoyia Trautmann 2 years ago.
I would continue to take it until you talk to your doctor b/c usually after 5 to 7 days after using it if you just quit taking it the dosage has to be reduced to wean yourself off of it because it does become habit forming for a lot of people. Most doctors don't want to put someone on something that is habit forming, He may switch you to something else. Buspar is an antianxiety medication. There are several Alprazolam Intensol Alzapam Ativan Centrax Equanil Inderal Inderal-LA Inderide [CD] Inderide LA [CD] Ipran Klonopin Lexapro ( Lexaprotm ) Libritabs Librium Lipoxide Loraz Lorazepam Intensol Luvox Meprospan Miltown Neuramate Novo-Alprazol Romazicon Paxil Paxipam Serax T-Quil Tranxene Tranxene - SD Tranxene T Valium Valrelease Versed Xanax Answered by Malia Part 2 years ago.
Klonopin is a benzodiazepine mainly used for treatments of seizures or symptoms of panic disorder. Frankly speaking, if you are not responding to klonopin well enough, you might want to ask your doctor to re-evaluate your medical profile. But before that; some factors for you to consider. 1. For the week's dosage, is it on a high dosage level? Coz klonopin IS habit forming and do have large withdrawal effects. Might suggest to reduce it gradually to minimise the effects. 2. I would suggest valium for mild anxiety attacks rather than klonopin. But since you are only on it for 1 week, u might want to stay longer to see its benefit. (That does not mean u can mix these 2 drugs together). Answered by Frederick Kemmerer 2 years ago.
I don't know that much about klonopin, but have taken zoloft and effexor for years and it usually takes a few weeks before you can begin to feel better. Just talk to your Dr. about which is best for you. Valium and xanax are usually for a one-time fix, but antidepressants are taken everyday and build up in your system. Just be safe and check out info on anything you take...there are side-effects to most of them! Answered by Winston Lapere 2 years ago.
hun it takes far longer than a week it usually takes about 3 weeks some times 4 to start seeing results and upwards of 3 months to start getting the full effect... the absolute best way to get this medicine as with any medicine... take it on a very continues bases. ie: the exact same time every single day like put it down on your cell phone for like 9 am.. to take it every day at that time. if you take one tab at 7:30 then the next one 8 hours later and then the next one 10 hours later its not going to be as effective. make it as routine as possible.
