    ponstan and diazepam

    hi everyone,
    got a question, don't know if any of you know the answer…
    i always get panicky when it's that time of the month (too much information, i know, sorry!) because i'm always in so much pain and my doctor prescribed me some ponstan (really hardcore painkillers). anyway, i was on diazepam for a while but stopped taking it - i still have loads left and my GP told me that if i feel really really panicky or anxious then i should just take some - i take it in quarts (a whole tablet contains 5mg).it's not that much but it helps.
    so, my question is, can i take both ponstan and diazepam at the same time? i've taken the ponstan and it's sort of killed the pain but i can feel the panic rising (doesn't help that i'm at work) and i don't know what to do.
    i've been trying to get hold of my gp to ask, but no luck…
    take care,

    Sorry I have never heard of it but I am sure Meg will be able to answer this when she sees it.

    hi henri,

    I don't think you should take them at the same time. If I'm right (and I think I am lol) there should be a gap of 4 hours between the time you take them..

    Hi Henri,

    They are different families and there are no major interactions cited - you may need less diazepam than previously - but as Sarah says - try to keep the taking times as far apart as possible.

    Have you tried rescue remedy early on in panic rising or abdominal breathing first.
