I have been taking volume as well as volume for many reasons including pain control due to a botched spinal fusion. It works well to relieve spasms as well as relaxes my bladder so I can empty. No real side affects as of yet.

Valium
| Dustin Ld
After 2mg clonazepam for 2 years and cymbalta, we finally convinced my doctor because of IBS, spasms,PTSD it would be best, since my change I feel normal again and can socailze...among many problem all my medication consist of 4 x's a day 7.5 mg norco's( awaiting back surgery,replacing L5 and S1) my 10 diazepam 3x's a day, librax(Librium/clindinium) 5/2.5 3x's a day for IBS stomachs pains, celebrex, and Restoril(temazapam) at night for insomnia.....but I've got to say without Valium and Librium I would suffer all day, I hope anyone who's read will get an idea of asking for these meds if u have similar conditions, all though dosing is different for everyone, with the new laws people that really need this type of medicine and take it properly are finding it harder to obtain, so I suggest you find 1 doctor and stick with him/her

Zopiclone mixed with lithium carbonate

Zopiclone taken with lithium had the reverse of the desired effect. Instead of helping me to sleep it sent me into a very bad manic episode.

seroquil
| kelly
I've put on 80 pounds and have had chest pains since taking seroquel. My doctor just took me off it cold turkey. I've tried every sleep aid on the shelf and i was wide awake for 3 days straight. Now i'm taking Valium the ER gave me months ago just to sleep but i've had a real bad headache for days.The chest pains stopped though. My Doctor isn't listening to me. I need to sleep but i also need this weight off can anyone suggest something to help me sleep.

pristiq
| Mia
after a month of doubting whether to start pristiq, i eventually did 2 weeks ago. i read many online comments prior. it is clear drugs affect everyone differently. the pristiq gave me so much anxiety, i felt i had drunk caffeine all day. my heart was racing, i was agitated, irritable, lacked appetite and gained insomnia. after 5 days, symptons were worse. i had eaten (cannot afford to lose weight), and rarely slept. had to take a sleeping tablet each night. i am not a fan of pharma's, and don't want to take a tablet for each symptom. i contacted a nurse who said to half the tablets (i was taking 50mg, then 25mg) and take a valium 5mg. The symptons weren't as bad when i halved the tablet, however, still have anxiety, no appetite and require something to sleep. i prefer a organic bush marijuana joint to smoke at night. more relaxing and i get a good sleep. I am weening myself off the pristiq and will go back to alternative remedies, acupuncture & chinese herbs, which always worked in the past. i don't want to be reliant on chemicals and toxins, which is what these pharma's are. if you are sensitive to caffeine and weigh around 5+1/2 stone or less, then think twice about these tablets. in the 2 weeks, i have lost a stone and bones are protruding, feeling faint and dizzy, nausea and headaches. it is just not worth it. i'd rather be sad. good luck to those for whom this tablet works.

I just had an MRI last week and the result was a herniation in my L4 disc. I was given pain relievers as well as Valium for the spasms I have since I also have bilateral sciatica. Ive never been on Valium a day in my life but let me tell u that it works so very well for the spasms. they told me to take 1-2 5mg pills every 4 hours. so I did the first week my husband was home with me because I just had a baby oct 10 2015. the total of the 10mg knocked me the hell out. now hes back to work I only will take a half of a 5mg pill so I can still function with my baby girl whos only 3 weeks old. Valium is a wonderful drug for anxiety and pain but I can see how people can get addicted to it tho. it gives me a "drunk" feeling if I take the full dose, then it makes me fall asleep. Gotta be careful with the med.
