Valium BID: 12 hours.Get a more detailed answer ›
Valium (diazepam) is an older benzodiazepine tranquilizer. It was the #1 prescribed drug (of any kind) in the us in the late 1960s but is used less now due to drug interactions and active metabolites. It is still used for anxiety and as "pre-medication" for uncomfortable medical and minor surgical procedures. It is habit-forming, should not be used with alcohol, ...Read more

Valium: As prescribed. It has long half life & can accumulate in your system, causing more sedation & tolerance. Would not recommend using more than 'as needed' & no more than every 12-24 hours. The dosing is up to your prescribing doctor who knows your case best. ...Read more
Am I in danger if I stop taking 60, yes six zero mg of Valium daily for the past two weeks? If so, advice?
Seizure risk: Although 2 weeks is not a very long time to be on valium, if you used 70mg/ day for mostt of that time, you might be increasing the risk of having a seizure if yku stop suddenly, not to mention causing high rebound anxiety states. I recommend you call your doctor tomorrow or monday to discuss your cobcetns and to make a safer plan that you are comfortable with. ...Read more
Can you take trifluoperazine and Valium together? Or at least 2 days apart from each other? Thanks
Yes, but: It may not be necessary. Trifluoperazine is considered a major tranquilizer or antipsychotic medication and Valium is a minor tranquilizer. The Trifluoperazine is used when your anxiety reach unrealistic or psychotic proportions. If you are on the right dose of Trifluoperazine, it may not be necessary to take Valium, unless the latter is used for other reasons like as a muscle relaxant. ...Read more
I took 5 mg of Valium two days in a row. I never take it ever. Had a urine test 12 days later and I hit the gym everyday plus sauna. Am I good?
Odds in your favor: Valium is a long acting benzodiazepine with active metabolites. It gets metabolized by the liver. It's clearance from the body depends on the condition of your liver and the presence of competing substances. Also, detection of valium in the urine is also based on the sensitivity and specificity of the test. Usually clears in 4 to 7 days. Best wishes! ...Read more
I want to know how long can I take Valium 10 mg without being dependent. It is prescribed and I'm not taking more pills.
Dependency: There is a difference between using diazepam as it is intended and addiction (when you take more than necessary to obtain a positive feeling). Unfortunately, there aren't any concrete rules on how long it takes. Best bet is always to take the lowest dosage of any medicine for the shortest duration possible to achieve an adequate result. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Have mri tomorrow take klonipin for anxiety 1 Mg was prescribed 2 Mg Valium because I'm clastropoyic can you take them together?
No: Valium and Klonopin are in the same class of medications. You should not take them together. Those dosages are low enough that nothing bad would likely happen but it just not good to mix those medications. I would talk with your provider about what dose of a single medication (Klonopin or valium) would be best. ...Read more

Heart rate: Resting heart rate in the50's may be a sign of excellent aerobic conditioning. If no symptoms it is not usually a cause for concern. Sometimes it can go lower and still be fine if no symptoms. ...Read more
I take 8 mg of ativan (lorazepam) a day I have 60 10 mg tablets of Valium what's the best way to come off iam only prescribed 4mg of ativan (lorazepam) a day?
This is tricky: Brandsulli, this may not be something you can do on your own. Ativan (lorazepam) is short-acting; valium is long-acting. You may be able to use fewer valium/day and break them in half as you taper off. Bottom line: you need to talk to whoever is prescribing the Ativan (lorazepam) and look for something other than benzodiazepines to treat your anxiety. Ativan (lorazepam), valium and the like are for temporary use. ...Read more

Does taking hiprex 2 daily make your mouth dry? I'm having a dry mouth and not on smh other meds apart from zolpidem and occasional Valium
Unlikely: Dry mouth is not a listed side-effect from Hiprex. However, it might be a rare unlisted side-effect. You could try to discontinue Hiprex & have Ur Dr. Prescribe a different urinary antibiotic, if necessary. Or your Dr might suggest taking Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin) at night after sex, as well as controlling constipation, avoiding thong underwear, taking showers rather than baths, measures to reduce risk of UTIs. ...Read more
