From this study (2 weeks ago):
When my father passed away I was prescribed Diazepam which helped with anxiety. I had also lost my appetite and thanks to Diazepam I take 2mg 15 minutes before dinner and can always eat and finish my food. If I stopped taking Diazepam I would probably not be able to eat as much. I've been on Diazepam 4 years.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Have severe anxiety and rumination
