Hi guys, I’m having a horrible anxiety attack. I took part of a Valium but it hasn’t kicked in and I am having awful cramps, which makes things worse because I have emetophobia. I drank earlier today but have felt totally fine for hours!
I’m wondering how long it will take until my medicine helps me relax and if I should do anything about the cramps. I feel very shaky and my heart is racing.

Hi Meagan,

Valium usually takes 30-60 minutes to act but if you have taken it for a long time tolerance will develop. How much did you take and for how long have you been taken it? Also it can interact with other medicines like SSRIs that make it more potent.

Hi Meaghan. I've only just seen your post now, but thought I would check in and ask if you managed to find some calm for yourself? x
