Duefor flexi-sig, 20mg temazepam did nothing last time, doc will prescribe diazepam she said.What dose and how long before should I take?Extreme anxiety

Its up to your doc: Without knowing more about you it would be irresponsible and frankly not possible to determine an appropriate dose for a procedure. In people for whom typical doses aren't adequate we will often bring in an anesthesiologist to control the level of sedation. We don't want to stop your breathing which happens occasionally even with small doses. Pre procedure 5-10mg of diazepam is typical. ...Read more

Can diazepam be used as a muscle relaxant? Would a doctor prescribe it for that?

All meds are a compromise to try to decrease spasms, but not be too dangerous. Diazepam (valium) is one that can be used in this manner. But must be used carefully as people can become dependant upon it. Short term use (days) only. ...Read more

What would 50mg of diazepam and a lot of weed do to me? Is it dangerous? I feel pretty sick right now

Sedation: Sedation is a common side effect caused by benzodiazepines like diazepam (valium) and cannabis. These substances also increase the risk of attention deficit, coordination deficit, concentration and memory loss. They possibly will augment their potential if taken together, although it is likely developing some tolerance to those effects when taken for long periods of time, and in high doses. ...Read more
