Learn everything about valum aka “the big V”. But please keep in mind, that I am not a doctor, I just have been prescribed to take this drug for several years now. Don’t take any advice I give here seriously and always consult with your doctor, this is purely just my own experience.
What is valum
In 2019 this is one of the most known drugs out there, but most of the people do not consider this a drug. They could not have been more wrong than that. It is the most known drug from benzodiazepines. The principal of this chemical is to slow down your chemical movements within your brain. This process is, therefore, to get you rid of anxiety. On higher doses, this does not only results in a reduction of your nervous tension aka anxiety, but also in the reduction of muscle spasm. On very high doses ( that quite differs from person to person) could also be a cause of sedation.
As I have mentioned before valum is used heavily in the department of treating anxiety disorders.
In certain countries they use it for different purposes like shakiness, getting you rid of hallucinations, which were caused solely by alcohol withdrawal. Most people do not know about this, but the big V is sometimes prescribed to athletes to reduce their muscle spasms.
Also, I believe there will be more studies in the future how this drug can treat athetosis.
Is it better than Ativan?
I did not take Ativan personally, but a close friend of mine was as I was on valum for more than 10 years now. His doctor switched him to ativan, he was taking up to 0.5mg of Ativan per day. But soon his doctor jumped his dose to 5 mg per day, which after few months ruined his blood work. He got slowly off Ativan and slowly back on the big V again. It took him 3 months to switch those medications again and another 8 months to improve most of the health marks within his own bloodwork. To feel good again, it took him almost two years. I would keep that in mind if you want to switch your medications.
Where are the side effects of taking Adderall with valum
For me, there were none. Because I had the same side effects as I had before I was ever on V. I did not even have to take high doses of Adderall to get sides. But I always got chills and muscle twitching. I was experiencing those 12 years ago when I did not know what valum was. And nowadays when I take Adderall I have the same issues as I had 12 years ago.
