How does valium make you feel?

My dr. prescribed me 5mg of valium to take on the way to the hospital. I was wondering how it makes you feel. I do want to be relaxed but I want to be coherent when I get there. I don't want to be silly either!

It makes me relaxed, I just don't care as much about things. For example, if my kids ask for root beer floats for dinner, I'd say yes. LOL

It doesn't make me silly at all. I'm not incoherent, but I sure wouldn't drive. good luck sweetie

It made me very relaxed. It was a very pleasant feeling. I was not incoherent, either.

No driving for sure. I took mine after an impacted wisdom tooth was removed, and I was told I would not be able to take care of my toddler for the rest of the day - probably because, like Callie, I wouldn't care as much about things and he might do something to endanger himself. That should not be a worry since you will be taking yours on the way to the hospital.

Thank you! I think I will go ahead and take it. I just want to be able to know what is going on around me.

DH will be driving me!

Does nothing what so ever, it should make you feel calm and collected, but it doesn't to that for everyone, some get no effect from it at all no matter the dosage.

Oh I LOVE valium!!!!! I asked the doc to give me something for my nerves, cause I am having a lot of crying spells, and was hoping he would give me those, but NO. He prescribed Wellbutrin, which if mostly for depression. I tried them, and when I tried to go to sleep at night it was like a fast forward movie playing in my head when I would shut my eyes, and they made me feel jittery inside, so no more of those!

I have been prescribed Valium to get me through up until my surgery because of my nerves & the anxiety of it all. It dosen't make me loopy or silly at all, just takes the edge off. The other day I was on the verge of tears all morning, I got home took the Valium & realized that my urge to breakdown & curl up in the fetal position had gone away. It has absolutely helped me to get through these last couple of weeks!

Better living through pharmacology I say!
