Ive been on diazepam or valium,since I was 16 it started off as a downer to come off eees and speed etc the rave drugs I'm from Glasgow so it was massive up there eventually came down to London case my dad lived here and we had to get to know each other but l had this massive diazepam and temazepam addiction my dad could not understand anyway long story cut short I stopped for a year and immediately went back on them as every day off them was basic depression, despair,loneliness,and mental torture so recently I've noticed actavis,Teva are the 2 main makes them you got these crescent which I think are so weak 4 of them is like 2actavis, you got Roche and Martin Dow but I'm not sure anyway my question is does anyone think crescent are weak?

Every prescription drug is controlled for its active ingredient, if it says on the packet how much drug there is in each tablet, then that is how much is in each tablet. If you are concerned about this try talking to your pharmacist.

If you are taking these drugs illegally, then maybe it is time to talk to your GP and get some help. Because dealers will always be looking to rip you off and sell you inferior drugs.

Hi there,I’ve never taken an illegal drug,but I also don’t judge people’s lifestyle. I can tell you I’ve been on Taemazapam and Diazapam since I was 18yrs old. I’m now 76( say that quietly😂). I do control both of them,because as you must know if you don’t they will not do the job your having them for. Now I like Diazepam because I can take it as needed,and my Gastrointestinal and pain specialist both agree. As for Temazapam,I would never sleep without it. I do believe there’s this myth around both these drugs ,down to the government. But my specialist who are two of the best in the country,say there two of the best drugs to take for the right reasons. I don’t know much about you,but I just thought I would give you my take on these two drugs. Hope I’ve been of some help.

yes ive already had a few replies to this quiestion you seem like you do know what you are taking being on it all those years especially. i too took temazepam but only for recreational use and it was the capsule form back in the late 80,s early 90,s back in glasgow , scotland we had a massive epidemic in those years unfortunately diazepam never really left me temazepam was taken off the market and i found the pill , tablet form very weak so i left it alone , im 47 and took diazepam from age of 16 and only 1year and a half ago was i completely taken off my last 10mg daily to 0 bit of a drop , i stiil occasionally turn to the net but its all indian, asian or eastern european diazepam even those actavis and teva are weak

i as i said i found crescent horrific i dont know what i was looking for taking them again and as someone mentioned there are other ways i tried a few ssris like mertazipine and sertraline both made me very drowsy next morning i couldnt get up , anyway im just one of the millions who are depressed please contiue your wise advice

This is just my opinion. I am on Mirtazapine,and in my opinion they are the worse tablet on the market to taper off. About 10 yrs ago I was given them 45 mg, I’m now down to 15mg but anytime I try to go lower I have extreme stomach pains,and my temper is through the roof. So I’m stuck with them. I’ve also joined a group where people are struggling to get off them.

I was also put on Pregablin and I have the same problem.

So to me Temazapam and Diazepam are mild in comparison.

Mirtazapine are awful to come off,but pregablin is lethal.....they are so addictive and can cause terrible side effects.My son I think was abusing them as the doctors prescribed them initially,now he’s not here anymore.

Oh I am soo sorry about that. When I get my Temazapam and Diazepam from the chemist I have to sign for them,because they are a controlled drug. Recently they have started doing the same with Pregablin.

Yes that’s right because they now know too late for a lot of people how dangerous they can be.Theres an American forum about people whose lives have been ruined with them. I’m going to take them all the way because of quickly and carelessly my son was on the highest dose. Anyway sorry about preaching but it’s caused so much grief.

No no,your not preaching,I totally agree with you. I’ve been on an American forum for Mirtazapine,in fact the lady who started it has become a good friend. And she took Mirt to court.

I wish nothing but luck. You take care.

This is not the only family of drugs for depression. Have you tried any of the newer drugs line the SSRIs? They may help you get over the depression that is caused when trying to come of diazepam etc.

could,nt help but notice you guys discussing pregablin , what a horrific drug to come off i had a little spell with it , thow i have heard it is good when used for what its prescribed for , i thought i was dying coming off that , i was taking a good 600 to 900 mg daily so it was a lot.
