Valium "bad stuff" ...?

Recommended Posts

So for a brief time after moving to a new state I had insurance. I went to a pdoc I found that was close by (btw lesson learned, never see someone just because of their location). She was NOT liking the fact my prior pdoc (a Univ. of Utah professor) had prescribed me valium. She said valium messes people up and it is just awful and she refused to prescribe it. Instead she gave me klonz, which I had already taken and in Utah, the Univ. pdoc took me off of it because it was not helping and it was just making me slur my words and act goofy. 

Anyone else here ever heard of valium being more addicting than any other benzo? I never have before. But this new gal insisted it was bad, bad stuff. ...?

My pdocs have always been hesitant to prescribe it for me, but I do believe it's one of the longest-acting benzos, which would make it more desireable I would think in terms of coming off it someday. 

BUT, I just tapered off Clonazapam and I'm in hell still. My opinions might be tainted.

right? I thought xanax was the most addictive too. I am all out of valium now and though my GAD is calming itself down a bit, I am scared Ill have a flare up due to having a brand new job. So Im looking for a new pdoc but it is hard! Not a lot of options in AZ which is weord - the 5th largest city in the US is Phoenix so youd think there would be a lot...

Don't make the mistake of confusing addictive and dependency. Meds are not addictive, but they can cause dependence. Alprazolam (Xanax) is most likely to cause dependence.

Yeah that is what my previous pdoc said. But the one I went to here in this new place, freaked out when she found out I was on valium and couldn't listen to me about why I was on it and refused to prescribe it. I didn't like her much. She kept confusing my story and the things I was telling her. I'm looking for someone else... still haven't found anyone, but I have a few new places I am going to call today.
