Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
I am very sorry to hear you are not feeling well.
Had you stopped Diazepam recently? What dose were you taking?
Thanks for this. It is easy to blame yourself, but you took it for a reason, and unfortunately the medication is addictive.
As you tapered to nothing on the 9th then I do not suspect this is a withdrawal at least. It is more that you felt like this before, and that is what you took the diazepam for.
You just need to find the way forward in managing your mental state. I would therefore suggest you have your Quetiapine reviewed with your GP regarding the dose. You should also arrange counselling.
Unfortunately diazepam may help in the short term, but long term it will cause you harm.
And you, that is my pleasure, all the best with this.
