    Ever played Metal Gear Solid? Remember diazepam? The relaxant that snake uses to keep the rifle aim steady? Well, I've grabbed a couple of those and it feels goooooooood.


    Ever tried muscular relaxants?

    Diazepam is not a muscle relaxer. It is a tranquilizer, aka Valium.

    Please don´t take diazepam (or any other benzodiazepine) too often, because you can become physically addicted VERY fast (I´ve worked with benzo-addictives for quite a long time, so I should know)!
    B.t.w.: Diazepam is a sedative as well as a muscle relaxant and also a anxiolytic (but the last 2 effects are not so strong), that´s why it´s used as a premedication before operations.

    This is very true. I started on Valium for anxiety over 11 years ago. Been taking daily for 11 years. I think I'm on it for life? Really I think if I stopped now I would die. Seriously. I don't think it even does anything but keep my body running right.

    A lot of riflists (Is that a word) take Propranonol (a beta blocker, or heart medication) to steady their hand, this drug is also used for stage fright and opiate withdrawal, as it negates a lot of the body's "fight or flight" reactions.

    It can cause asthma in some people though.
