Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
great question. do you have any other medicines that you take or any chronic medical conditions? also, what is the MRI scan for?
okay, do you have a ride to and from the MRI scanner?
and have you taken valium before?
last question, do you drink alcohol every day even in small amounts?
so a 6mg dose is what i would take, all at once, and i would take it 45m or so prior to the scan
that's a pretty reasonable dose for you... 5mg is the low dose tablet here in the US
so no problem with 6mg
you are most welcome
do you have further questions about this?
okay, one more thing... prepare yourself mentally.... this doesn't have to be scary.. they will probably have headphones for you so you can listen to music and talk to you while you are being scanned. close your eyes and think happy thoughts... trust that the medicine will help, and know that it is important to get the scan done... should take about 15-25m depending on scanner speed. you will here mechanical noises inside the machine... no worries, very safe test, no radiation to you at all. make sense?
You are most welcome. Good luck. Hope the scan is normal.
