Usually the only reason that anyone takes valium is for anxiety and nervousness. At least that was what I always thought. But it is helpful in its own way with MM.
I guess it was about the fifth trip to the emergency room from work, when I first heard about valium. The doctor on call asked all the usual questions about what medications I was taking. I told her the Antivert and a diuretic. She asked if I had ever taken valium. I told her no. She wrote out a prescription for 10 mg.
I took it till the medicine ran out and frankly I didn’t see any difference. I didn’t hear about valium again till I went to an inner ear specialist and he told me to begin taking it. He prescribed a 2 mg dosage. I begin taking it once in the morning when I woke up and I believe that it has been effective along with my other meds.
Why does it work? Simply put it relaxes the vestibular system. And you only need a small dosage which is good because the valium will make you tired. I know that the 10 mg made me tired.
Ask your inner ear specialist if it is right for you.
