My mother has just been prescribed diazipan (which i believe is valium)
and I wonder how worried I should be. Her diet is awful, full of
sugar and general rubbish. (She will have half a gateau instead of
eatig a proper meal) Ive tried for years to educate her and have almost given up to be honest. But shes now 65, her hands are shaking and she really seems to be losing the plot. Her head jerks and she feels like shes talking funny, although sounds ok.
shes already taking stemitil for dizziness,
diet drugs are xenokal 3 x day, although shes no longer terribly
overweight and i dont she should take them anymore.
she also takes verapanil for palpitations/hypertension
bendrfslunethiazide for blood pressure
sinvastatin for cholesterol
and inhalers as and when she needs them - salbutamol and beclometasone
she also has a multi vitamin, 1200mg calcium and cod liver oil
the reason for the valium is her head jerks and she feels like she's
talking funny, although she sounds fine. she says its when she gets
excited, but she did it while on the phone to me and while having a
coffee with her neighbour. i dont call that excitement!
the doctor gpt snotty when i tried to talk to him and said its
nothing to worry about. i really dont know what to do next
i could try her with a homeopath but ive never managed to chnage her
eating habits yet, although my dad is also concerned so he may help
