Why would you want to? Please don't start buying prescription drugs. If you need them then go and see your GP.

madmouse Sat 12-Mar-11 16:50:26

please tell me you are not considering this

I would never buy precription drugs online. You have no have no idea what is in them. They could be selling you rat poison for all you know.

Please do not do this. Go to your GP if you are struggling with something. They are there to help you, not to judge you.

very silly idea. and how would you know it was actually diazepam? could be anything at all.

go to your gp

MadMommaMemoo Sat 12-Mar-11 16:52:28

I'm so desperate for some relief from this anxiety. Haven't even been able to come out of my bedroom today. And bloody doctor won't give me any thing else.

so go see a different doctor in the same practice and tell them your concerns

madmouse Sat 12-Mar-11 16:54:37

diazepam for anxiety is a very quick route to addiction to benzos and anxiety

MadMommaMemoo Sat 12-Mar-11 16:56:18

I've been to different doctors, see psychiatrist etc. Diazepam is the only thing that gives me any relief.

I won't do it really I'm just feeling desperate.

so you've obviously used it before Memoo. For how long? Ar you addicted to it?

kizzie Sat 12-Mar-11 16:58:36

Memoo - you know yourself - you mustnt do this.

Just do what you can to get through today. lots of breathing exercises. Drink some vile chamomile tea. Watch rubbish on tv. Anything at all just to use up the time.

And then you need to speak to the dr on monday.xx

MadMommaMemoo Sat 12-Mar-11 16:59:21

No not addicted. They gave me 5 days of it a few weeks ago and it was the first time in 18 months I felt normal. It's was only a low dose 2mg x 3

I'm going to phone on Monday, my usual gp is off ATM so dreading it.

there's a reason they gave it for such a short time. Any longer than that and it is nothing but trouble

MadMommaMemoo Sat 12-Mar-11 17:05:48

I managed to post this twice somehow. I'm going to get dh to call the crisis team and explain how bad I'm feeling. Hopefully they'll be able to help.

I'm also wondering why they gave you such a small amount and I think they may be worried about you misusing it, for whatever reason. I have diazepam, not for anxiety (although I have that too, I take propranolol for it) but for when things in life become extremely stressful and I need to zone out for a while. I don't have a regular prescription for it, but the doc seems happy enough to prescribe it when I ask, once he's checked that from my records that I'm not taking it regularly. I usually get about thirty 10mg tablets at a time!

MadMommaMemoo Sat 12-Mar-11 17:17:03

Golly, I think it might be because I'm on a shed load of other meds for depression and anxiety. I really don't think they think I'm misusing it. I've only had it 3 times in the past 18 months. A total of 15 days worth.

GollyHolightly Sat 12-Mar-11 17:19:14

Ah. Do they think you're at risk of overdosing, either deliberately or accidentally perhaps? That might explain it.

I'm sorry you're having such a shit time of it with anxiety, I know how crippling it can be. Have you ever tried propranolol? it worked wonders for me and by being on them I slowly managed to recover almost completely. The only thing that freaks me out now is when I can't sit at the end of the row in the cinema grin

MadMommaMemoo Sat 12-Mar-11 17:23:58

I take propranolol and buspirone and they did help at first but I'm finding that I'm slowly getting worse again. I'm definitely going to go back to my gp on Monday and I'm waiting for a call back from the crisis team.

I won't really get diazepam online, I just feel so desperate for some relief sometimes.

I so get the siting at the end of the row in the cinema! Otherwise you're just totally hemmed in!!

You can phone the duty doctor that your gp centre uses at weekend, for an appointment over the weekend, and go and see them if you are struggling.

I have bought 'stuff' online before, I bought some Zopiclone when my GP stopped it, I had been taking it for over 10 years previous to this, and I can tell you for sure the 'stuff' that I got was NOT Zopiclone!

I also bought some Diazepam once - but it was very very strong... It's not something I would ever do again, (also cost me a fortune, money that I did not really have) like others have said it's very dangerous... I just wanted you to know it's really not worth it.

I actually am prescribed regular Diazepam now and I recently recieved a copy of a letter that my Psych sent to my GP to say I will probably never be able to come off it, as I have took it for most of my adult life.

I can't understand why gps are so quick to prescribe antidepressants with all their side effects and not knowing what the long term effect of them will be, and yet won't prescribe diazepam because it's addictive. Surely they could prescribe a low dose to ensure people don't take too many, i.e five or ten a month to take when suffering extreme anxiety, regularly reviewed. The side effects are low and the benefits more immediate.

Everyone putting why would you do it. I get it as my doctor doesn't want me on them. But nothing else works. In England it was fine. In Wales they take you off them. Because there addictive, which makes no sense to me as they just stopped mine. And I've had no side affects. I now get 12 a month. No where near enough. So I'm stook in house all the time

MamaWeasel Sat 02-Mar-19 22:14:09

I get up to seven diazepam a month to use when I feel it is necessary alongside my other medications (sertraline and aripiprazole)
