If you don’t mind me asking, which med was it and what happened?

It was 5mg Valium. I got really angry and disinhibited. Was convinced a stranger was video taping me. Came within a hairswidth of verbally losing myself.

Was really not like me at all

I spoke to the weekend nurses. They said I should feel free to phone them anytime

Certain benzos do the same thing to me.

I think it was lorazepam, made me even worse !!

Klonopin works fine though

Good, this is why I hate taking Klonopin.
It makes me feel “drugged” up.

Ativan made me hallucinate!

i liked the diazepam when i took it bc it just calmed me down, i use to get really uptight and anxious but it is a bit better now

i think the nurse gave you good advice bc thats what i do when i need help, the nurse can put you at ease,

Well after my coffee episode I took another diazepam. This was an experiment to see if I got agitated again.

This time was totally fine, great infact. I felt a lot calmer and there was no anger.

I think my earlier episode was brought on from being in a crowded supermarket. I haven’t properly left the flat in months so it is understandable to be overwhelmed.

But I am definitely give my parents my diazepam to keep at their house. They live round the corner so I can get access to them in the event of emergencies

I always felt good on 1mg of Ativan and 1mg of Klonopin. Wish I was still on them.
