    Valium and MRI


    Back in March, I went to the emergency room and had to undergo an MRI on my head. I have developed terrible anxiety, and they administered me two separate doses of ativan intravenously (the initial dose wasn't enough after I learned I would have to wear a helmet over my head in addition to the enclosed space). After these two doses, I didn't care about anything--I finally understood what 'high' really meant.

    Anyway, I cannot recall how much they gave me, but I had to get an MRI last week on the same area with the same and my GP prescribed 2mg lorazepam tabs. I took two an hour before and was not calm enough to have the exam.

    Now he has prescribed me 5mg diazepam tablets. I took a 5mg tablet last night. I did not feel carefree, just drowsy. I do not think it will help me for the MRI.

    Obviously, my body does react euphorically to the BZDs since they worked in hospital. Should I take 10mg? or more?

    Thank you

    Diaz is not as powerful as loraz. You would need a higher dose than 2mg - maybe 5mg - but you should consult your GP about this first. You don't want to take 5mg or 10mg and feel too sedated for procedure.

    So you took 2x2mg lorazepam? So 4mg lorazepam? That equals roughly 40mg diaZepam if so? 1mg lorazepam = between 7.5mg Diaz and 15mg Diaz depending on chemical make ups etc.... lorazepam works more on physiological anxiety than psychical and Diaz works more on physical anxiety than psychological...

    I have tried many benzoís and got scripts for them all. I would say lorazepam works best for anxiety than any other benzo including klonopin and Xanax.... but YMMV with any of them.
