Norflex (orphenadrine) & Valium?: These two drugs should only be prescribed by an MD In very specific cases, as they are both CNS depressants. valium ( a benzodiazepine) has a half life of 12 - 24 hrs, which means is takes 12 -24 hours for the amount in your blood stream to reduce by half. Norflex (orphenadrine) has a 16 h half life, so again, it will take 16 hours for half of the amount in your bloodstream to be eliminated.

Depends: A drugs clearance depends on a number of factors. Generally speaking, with normal kidney and liver function both valium and Norflex (orphenadrine) should have negligible effects after about 7 excretion half lives which are 14 hours for Norflex (orphenadrine) and 30 hours for valium. We generally recommend that patients not drive for 24 hours after taking valium, which is the longer half life of the two medications.
