Ok: There should be no adverse interaction between the tranquilizer,diazepam, and the appetite reducer,duromine. I would encourage you not to take diazepam regularly as it is habit forming and in time to discontinue duromine. Your physician or pharmacist can also answer questions about your medications.

Yes: The half life is measured in hrs, max of 60 hours meaning it would be gone from system within 2 weeks. Risks of birth defects, with rxs in general, only become an issue if present in significant amounts after the 1st 2 weeks of conception.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Will diazepam work if taken on a full stomach?

Yes: It will although all medications have a quicker onset and more marked effect if taken on an empty stomach. Think about the difference of drinking a glass of wine on an empty stomach versus having the same glass with a full meal- the effect of the wine (or buzz) is generally much less with food in the stomach.

Valium, sleep: Depending on the reason your{bad doc gave it to you in the first place. Sleep is quite infrequently the only symptom. It mostly is a symptoms of a bigger entity = sleep is mostly a symptom in a syndrome. Treat the diagnosis, treat the syndrome, not the symptom. Valium never treats anything. It only falsely makes people feels secure then aggravates the main problem by late rx.

After how long does diazepam (valium) not react with alcohol?

Longer than U think: If taken orally (as most people do) it takes the average young healthy person about a day to get rid of half the drug they took. This metabolism is prolonged further with use of alcohol. So best advice.... Several days would be a safe interval.

Addiction is common: "anxiety medications" are becoming overprescribed for anxiety. They can be addictive in the traditional sense but also they can become an emotional crutch as well. Many people eventually feel they 'need' medication to overcome normal feelings of anxiety.
