Hello, my name is***** thank you for your question. I am a qualified MD with 18 years’ experience and I am happy to work with you on this. ​
I’m sorry to hear about your problem. I know how worrisome this situation can be for you.

Let me answer your queries:

1) Diazepam is not known to cause hair loss or sexual side effects

2) Propranolol does have hair loss and sexual side effects. These are however rare and not severe, and always temporary, with recovery soon after the medicine is stopped.

3) Since you would not want to take Propranolol because of its side effects, you can take Diazepam for panic attacks. This will not cause hair loss or sexual side effects and will work very well in this.

Hope this helps to resolve your worries.

Wish you good health. I hope I’ve provided the information you were seeking. If you are happy with my service, your 5-star rating at this time is most welcome. If you need more help, please let me know so l can continue to assist you.

Thank you and I wish you the best of health - stay safe!

If I’m only takeing diazapam as and when of panic attacks due to performance anxiety is it ok to take long term

Also I’ve stopped my subscription can you please let me no when it expires thanks
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 8 days ago.

Diazepam will not help much in performance anxiety.

Propranolol is the best drug for performance anxiety.

Hair loss is a rare side effect of propranolol. Since you are going to use it only occassionally before performances, it is not expected to lead to any hair loss for you at all.

You should continue to use Propranolol for performance anxiety, dont worry it wont lead to any hair loss for you with this use.

Glad to be of help.

Please choose a positive rating with 5 stars from the rating bar of stars at the corner of your chat box if my answer has helped you (or click on 'rate and close'). We are paid only when a positive rating is given. I expect this from you if I have been able to help you.

Without a positive rating, this session remains inconclusive and the question will show up as an 'unaccepted request' against your ID.

Thank you.
