talk to your ENT: Valium withdrawal is variable in length and never complete if you've been taking it for prolonged periods (years).

+\-: Depends...on your confidence level with your primary care physician. Sounds like you've developed essential hypertension, and it's management will depend on things like weight loss, exercise, salt restriction, and perhaps the conscientious use of BP meds.
