Long storey but I'll try to be brief. I became quite suicidal about 11 years ago after ,what one doctor described as a nervous breakdown. It was horrible. The feeling of being unhinged and hopeless. Eventually I was given 40m of Citalopram and after a few weeks I came round, gave up drinking and have been O K since. Started having alcohol after 2 years or so off it and have been O K with that. I am 75 and got Covid in September this year. It too was orrible for three days then I got gradually better the next 3 or 4 days A few days later I started to have bad anxiety and the suicidal thoughts returned. I told my wife about me sharpening a knife at 2 in the morning and she contacted the local doctors one of whom prescribed Diazepam but not for the long term and "Only 28 and you know why" he said over the phone!! On Monday this week I tried to get a phone call from the said doctor but was told that i would have to wait until the 17th of December!!! I use the pills "as and when" and some days do not take any. They help and I am trying to "tough it" through the anxiety when it comes. Now it seems I am going to have my Citalopram reduced and I am being refused Diazepam. I am also taking C B D oil twice a day. The anxiety is, thankfully, not all consuming as it was all those years ago but its fookin horrible and worst of all it frightens me. So folks Is there a effective alternative to the Diazepam PLEASE for this sad old *** Chris who worked and paid into Nat Ins' for the required 50 years!! Thank in advance

I got a TEXT from the doctor saying that he was issuing me with 14 diazepam to "tide you over until we speak" As it stands I should not need them as I have a "couple" and at the moment I feel grand. This feeling does not always last and since my episode of Covid in September, i have had massive anxiety the these periods of calm
