Does valium work for anxiety and are there any side effects, my mother doesn’t want me to take them because she says there are some side effects.
valium does work for anxiety, but it has more of a sedative effect than an anxiolytic effect, so it will more than likely make you tired and maybe a little loopy, depending on how tolerant you are to narcotics. there are side effects to any medication, definitely more dangerous ones with highly addictive narcotics like xanax and oxycontin. Xanax is usually preferred for anxiety, its just so addictive they rarely prescribe it for a one time thing, so valium is probably better, and he/she is your doctor so im sure what they gave you they feel you could benefit from in a safe way as long as you dont abuse the medication.
