Can I take a Valium or Diazepam tablet?

Hi there,

I previously posted a Q about having a seizure following a pro-longed migraine and I've continued to have problems for the past two months but, especially in the last week. I've been having alot of what I can only describle as mini seizures. My Q is, would it be ok for me to take a Valium or Diazepam tablet, would it help to relax me, until I get to see my Doctor, which wont be till next week. I am currently taking a multi-vitamin supplement (non-prescribed) but not taking any other medication bar an odd paracetomal tablet.
Would this be ok and could it help as I am quiet uncomfortable at the moment.
Any advise would be helpful,
Jessie.

Hi,

How are you?
The dose of diazepam in healthy adults ranges from 2 mg – 10 mg. I would suggest you to start with the lowest dose and do check with your PCP before you start the medication.
If it is not a sleep issue but an anxiety issue you can opt for a mild tranquilizer like alprazolam.
It would definitely help to calm you down a little. Please remember that diazepam can cause tolerance and dependence.
Take care!
