User Comments about Valium
03 Dec 2012 Valium can be a godsend, but the difficulty seems to be the knowledge of the prescribing doctor to know where the cliff face is, and when to much is prescribed that the withdrawal effects are pure fantasy on the patients part

08 Oct 2010 Since taking Valium, the pain from surgery is gone, but the hallucinations are very vivid and at some times, difficult to discern them from reality.
