5 mg oral Pharms - Diazepam (pill / tablet)


I been on some Valium for about a year, but I dont take it everyday. I was getting strange numb and tingling feelings and a kind of weak rush through my body. Actually what I feel exactly is very hard to explain properly really. Anyway my doc says it could be a form of anxiety and give Valium 5mg. It turns out its not the cure for me.

I cant understand what the fuss about addiction and that is. Personally I think the stuff is rubbish. Its just a sleeping pill. I get no high or pleasant calm effect from it. All it does is knock me out and I sleep for hours.

I have had 30 of them in my drawer for months and gave 10 away to my neighbour. He loves them. Cant see why. I have had 5 repeats over the last 8 months or so of 50 tabs. I have weened my way through them slowly over time. Last time I asked the doctor if there was something else he could give me to help with my odd feelings. But all he could give me was more of the Valium rubbish. I certainly didnt ask for it. Though I will accept it as I have learned that I can swap it for other drugs like weed, which is a far better drug and I actually get high.
