Valium can decrease your ability to breathe, so it is not a good idea to use this drug. Ventilators can not be used only at night. There are other forms of Breathing machines such as BiPAP which may be easier for you to use. Also elevate your upper body on 3 pillows which will help you breathe better. Your Lasix dose may need to be increased to help remove more fluid from your body. I am here to answer any additional questions. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars. This is how I am credited for my response. Thank you and feel better.
