When I prescribe Valium, I prescribe that it should be taken one hour prior to the appointment. With 10 mg, you should have someone drive you to and from the visit.
You shouldn’t take more than your doctor prescribed, as it can be dangerous.
When you get anxious, or panic, the body releases adrenalin.The adrenalin causes your body to overact, i.e. the heart beat increases, you breath quicker etc , that in turn makes you panic more and then your body releases more adrenalin for fight or flight (which it is meant to do ) and then this makes you even more upset and you panic even more. One technique is to breathe into a paper bag (not plastic), and inhale your own carbon dioxide. This slows down the increase in breathing rate and stops the cycle of panic from getting worse.
A therapist would call this “grounding techniques”
What is involved is to access one or more of your 5 basic senses – focusing on it – until the danger is passed. This is a way to re-direct your mind on purpose, and to avoid feeling the negative feelings.
Single focus example –
For a person who becomes easily upset, purpose to carry a smooth rock in your pocket. At a time of stress this person would hold and rub the rock, blocking out all other thoughts, concentrating on the shape and feel of the rock in their pocket.
Multi-focus example –
Recognizing negative or upsetting thoughts, purpose to access each of the 5 senses. Look in your immediate area for:
3 different textures to touch
1 change the taste in your mouth – gum, candy, etc mint works well here
No it is a prescribed drug and you cannot get it without a script.
