I have diabetic neuropathy and have had a complete hysterectomy,gallbladder removal, and broke my shoulder and arm 4 months ago. The broken bones have not healed. The Serax works great but doctor will not prescribe enough. I take 4 10 milligrams pills a day and 1 hydrocodone. I take 40 units of insulin twice a day.

suffer from chronic anxiety, shortness of breath, profused sweating, Serax helos when yaken in small doses like 15 milligram, up to 4 pills a day, that's only 20 mg but it should be enough for the average person.

I need to know how long this medication will stay in my system.I had taken it for a month and I stop taking it over 14 days ago and it still shows up in my urine Do I need a liver function test to see why I am not metabolizing it quicker.

It's a valium derivative like temazapam in effect but it only works for 6 hours for a big guy, comes on strong, v. relaxing. Allow 2.5 hours before you want to sleep. When I was totally wired in hospital having been told I didn't have long to live the doc gave me one poxy 10mg pill of it for sleep, I had to laugh it was so small, 2 nights later after the night staff complaining about me staying up all night and smoking in the bathrooms he gave me 2; I took 20mg everynight thereafter for 11 months and had little problem to sleep. Then the malignant blood pressure broke and I had no problem dropping them along w. the drugs for cancer of the adrenaline glands but I still always like to have them around for when I can't get a good night sleep for a long time or I just have to be at an early interview or something. I think they are great and have no hangover effect like the other benzodiazapam derrivatives. Looking back over 11 years extra life since end stage terminal heart failure in '97.

I was not aware of the addictive-ness of this drug. Although it worked rapidly and gave me a good calming affect, I would feel like I had a hangover if I decreased my dosage. This was after taking it only a week! Being in therapy and a 12-step program gave me true coping tools and a support system so, against my physicatrist advice, I stopped taking the Serax after two weeks. Although the drup was very effective, replacing one substance (alcohol) with another wasn't a solution for me. I now take a natural GABA supplement and, with 12-step support, manage my anxiety much better.
