Despite all the foolish media propaganda over the years, a valium tablet is not the demon it has been made out to be. The valium tablet has been demonized by its abuse by a small number of people who have given a very high quality anti-anxiety drug a very bad name. The sad part of this is that the media sells such a distortion at the price of denying accuracy to the general public. That, in and of itself, is a very shameful act.
Where the valium tablet gets such a bad name from is the clichéd TV and movie image of the cocaine addict using a valium tablet to come down from a high and then falling asleep and unable to get to work. (This image was immortalized in the ultra-lame potboiler, LOOKING FOR MR. GOODBAR in the 1970’s) While there is some reality to this, the complete reality is that valium is general prescribed to alleviate the very serious condition of anxiety related disorders and problems that can be very inhibitive to someone effectively living a life when anxiety precludes such effective living.
When one is suffering from stress and anxiety, one should not try and gut one’s way through a difficult time period when such actions could prove more stressful than the original condition. Sometimes a little bit of help is required and that help can come in the form of a valium tablet. There is no crime in this. The crime is in the totally false impressions that have been fostered on the public and, as a result, dissuade them from seeking proper medical attention.
So, do not let foolish media demonization fool you into avoiding therapeutic medicinal care. Believing everything you see on TV can be harmful, particularly when one listens to biased and slanted ‘news’ reports that are totally phony.
