    I've 'discovered' that after a few days of valium 'binge' and then getting a lot less sleep than usual (about 6/7hrs instead of usual 10-11) for a few days, my amazing mood comes back for a few hours and I'm no longer depressed!!! How does this thing work? IS there an explanation for this?Can anyone control their moods this way?

    Of course I can control my mood. Otherwise, I wouldn't be called impressive.

    Good sleep is essential for all mental health. It could just be that.

    Be careful of med binges that you're not prescribed in that amount. It can be addictive and/or dangerous.

    I've been taking it for almost 5 years so I'm good.

    Doesn't mean you're not abusing it or putting yourself at risk. Just be careful, that's all I was trying to say.

    How did you avoid building up a tolerance to it?

    I hardly ever take it and need 20mg to feel anything.

    I know, hope my post wasn't rude or anything! That wasn't my intention. I am abusing it a bit, probably.

    Hmm I do have a bit of tolerance. I'm really skinny so in the past ,5mg was almost a knock out dose for me. Of course, I now need more than that to really feel it's effects. But the key to avoiding complete tolerance (in my experience) is to take it on and off. For example my 'binge' lasted a few days continuously, now I will try to go at least a few days off it. As a general rule I try not to take it more than 4 times a week. E.g. I will take it on sun and monday, and tue, wed break, then I will take it on Thursday, break on fri etc.

    4 times a week is a lot!

    I used to take it once a month or so; even that seems too often. Mostly I take klonopin now as it works better for me, but hell...4 times a week! Where'd you even get that much diazepam?

    Oh no no, it won't steady your mood. It can only do the opposite. I just wanted a short relief from my depression.

    Really? That's strange, maybe it depends on a person and you quickly build up tolerance to stuff? Well, obviously not from a doctor. I can't discuss this because I don't want mods to close my topic : ( Let's just say it can be a bit costly. You know what the NHS GPs say' ITS A SHORT TERM SOLUTION' etc etc etc. so there's no way they'd prescribe it for that long.
