Wanting to know if anyone used a benzo such as diazepam for helping with symptoms coming from pppd (persistant,perceptual positional dizziness).

I am 70 yrs female with this condition it is a form of vertigo.I am taking 2 mg valium twice a day.

Been taking off and on for 8 yrs.This condition gives me a floating and balance issues especially when I walk and turn my head.Symptoms go away or quiet down a lot when I sleep or sit down

Hello onebox, welcome to BenzoBuddies,


I'm not familiar with your condition but I do know that benzodiazepine tolerance, withdrawal and recovery cause people symptoms of boatyness, dizziness and vertigo, I didn't realize they can help with the condition they create in others. 


How long have you had this condition, has it been going on for more than 8 years, was it there before you started the Valium?


I'll provide some links so you can ask other members for their feedback, I'll be interested to hear more about your condition.
