weesudders very few people stay at 10mg (My dh did incidentally but that's more stubbornness than common sense)

20 is a very normal dose to be on, not at all high and nothing to worry about. The idea is that you find the dose that is right for you and stick with that until you have felt better for a good while (4-6 months) so it is all a long term thing.

just go easy on the valium wee - it's very addictive
