Last year I wrote a blog post about valium and Meniere’s disease. Since then I have read that some people haven’t had much luck with it or they are worried about the sedative effects that it has. My question is does valium help with Meniere’s disease?
In the middle of last month my prescription of valium ran out. I had already called in one emergency refill and I knew that the doctor would insist that I come in before getting another prescription. I really didn’t have the time last month to schedule a doctor’s appointment so I thought that I would forego with taking the valium till I could get a prescription from the doctor.
In retrospect it probably wasn’t a good idea. Just the thought of not taking the valium stressed me out. I worried that it was a vital part of my medicinal routine that not taking it would lead to me having an attack. I had taken valium on a regular basis since the beginning of last year, although I can’t say for sure I think that it has helped me.
Over the couple of weeks that I didn’t take valium I certainly felt a little light-headed than usual and I definitely took more Antivert than I normally do. And that isn’t a good tradeoff because the valium, at least to me, doesn’t leave me tired like the Antivert does. I was also taking Phenergan which is stronger than the Antivert.
Finally I decided to bite the bullet and go to the doctor and get my prescription of valium. I don’t know that it is helping me but I don’t want to break up the routine that I have had over the past year. All things considered 2009 wasn’t that bad for meniere’s.
I would really like to hear from anyone who has had good, bad or indifferent experiences with valium.
