I take one tablet an hour before I got on the plane and was really, really. as have a worse fear for that than flying, but hadn't thought of taking maybe half a one.
My doc gave me these also and they are great. You can drink with them but of course the health professionals dont advise it. I too suffer from panic attacks but have found that they have diminished dramatically after doing yoga. Take one to begin with and give it twenty minutes to work, then see how you feel. They make you feel quite relaxed and a little drunk. A long term solution would be to try something else like positive visualisation. HOpe this helps. I learnt how to do this in yoga class and it has enabled me to fly and travel without the aid of valium and alcohol.
To go round and let her know?
BTW, if any use to anyone, I had to look into this for dental treatment during pregnancy and GP advised against using during first or third trimester, although this was just in my case, it isn't to say it is unsafe if your GP has said otherwise!.
Life I have avoided flying, so I cannot truly say that I have fear of flying as I I take diazepam when I've got a flight to Vegas and it DOES help.
there are better drugs on the market for this.(less side effects)more modern than valium.
I know the feeling.! I take diazepam when I've got a flight to Vegas and it DOES help. I only get 2mg tablets and I take two before I get on the plane and I'm fine.
But DON'T drink ALCOHOL!! will make you feel worse. But if you need to take, take 1 before you go to bed, 1 when you get up and 1 as you get to the gate to board. That should see you great.
part of me is very excited about flying as it will be a new experience, although my "holiday" will start in earnest when we land!.
Answer 1 of 62: I've had a fear of flying for 15 years, and yet still carried The fact that you feel better by knowing that you have Valium to take.
But there are better options for long term treatment so that you can fly in the years ahead. If it works it is an easy immediate solution that could help with this next flight. I tried Valium for my fear of flying many years ago and didn't like the way I felt after taking it so I strongly recommend trying it at home before hand.
And one brave day il face this head on and go on a course! ( hopefully soon?) Good luck Lynne.
The leaflet in the box is most probably referring to phobias that affect everyday life ( I'm assuming you don't fly several times per week) but once or twice a year for the purpose of holidays will not harm you nor get you addicted.
I also use all the behavioral stuff I teach my patients (relax, deep breathing, etc etc) and by using that, as time goes on I have found that I'm even able to use LESS of the medication.
Around a fifth of the population suffers from a fear of flying, and 10 percent as the recent one involving Ryanair, bring us out in a cold sweat.

There’ll be inside knowledge to impart, observations to make, and expectations to overturn. It might, at times, be a bumpy ride. Each week this column will report back from the world of travel journalism, a strange and oft-misunderstood place (you think travel writers fly in business class anyway? We wish), and I won’t be confining myself to the subject of flying.
More from the web.
I’d seen it coming – the quiet intensity, the bursts of fidgeting - but the cabin crew, busy as ever selling scratch cards, hadn’t.
Fear of flying Diazepam 5mg. I have 10 x 5mg diazapam to take prior to appointments , i am allowed to take it 3 or 4 times a day - so i can.
I wouldn't want you to waste one though. You only have 2 pills? I was going to say you could always take one tonight or something and see how it feels.
I have been perscribed 2x 5mg diazepam tablets and am wondering if they actually work? How will I feel? Any help would be appreciated x. After suffering a panic attack last year on a flight back from Las Vegas I have since been absoluy terrified of flying to the point it makes me shake thinking of it.
You’re not alone, reach out to thousands of patients.

I was perscribed 2mg x2 last year and that didn't help so was worried 5mg still won't work. Thank you for your comments.

Diazepam doesn't do much for me personally but I know a lot of people that swear by it. Says it instantly relaxes them and their muscles.
