I have a drug test on jan 8th and I took 15 mg diazapam... is that long enough to pass?? it was my first use...

Chronic use of Valium results in a longer detection window, between 4-6 weeks. It is long acting and has a half-life between 20-80 hours, depending on the amount and the ability of the body to clear the drug. ...Read more

How long could you take diazepam (valium) before the drug is useless?

How long could you take diazepam (valium) before the drug is useless?

I don't understand?: I'm not really understanding your question, since valium is not "useless." the basic drug has a 30-60 hour half-life, and it has psychoactive breakdown products. This is one of the problems with it, especially in older people: it can build up and create longer-lasting sedation & cognitive issues than expected or desired. Tolerance can happen -- habituation, addiction, & withdrawal syndrome too. ...Read more

Hi my dad has been prescribed  diazepam and the instructions only say take 3 times a day, but nothing about how long it should be between doses,?

That's the problem: Unfortunately it happens too often. Three times a day means even intervals while awake. Another option of the same daily dose every eight hours. Please be advised that your dad may be on very edge of addiction to benzodiazepines. It's very important to limit the use of control substances and seek nonaddictive's alternatives. Thank you very much. ...Read more

I am takeing diazepam and amitriptyline and 30mg prolonged I find that I can not do with out them now so how can I stop takeing them?
