How long will 10mg of Valium taken twice stay in my system?

How long will 10mg of Valium taken twice stay in my system?

Quite a while: The "half life of elimination" of Valium (diazepam) plus its active metabolites ranges from 40 to 100 hours - depending on the individual. The the rule of thumb in pharmacokinetics is that it requires 5 half lives for a drug to reach negligible levels. So, the estimate would be from 200 to 500 hours to completely eliminate diazepam from the human body. ...Read more

I'm down to 10mg Valium a day from 30, has taken me a year and a half. Getting harder and harder. Worried I'll never get off, should I be?

Valium: Don't know why you are taking the valium. If you are taking it for an anxiety - treating with a medication like an SSRI or buspar (buspirone) may help to prevent those symptoms. Always work directly with your physician as you are tapering. Congratulations - you can do this !! ...Read more

I took 50 mg  valiums for one day, five 10mg tabs I have a drug test coming up dec 3 , its nov 9th now i was wondering if ill pass or fail 6'2 5 pd?

Big problem: Valium has a long elimination half-life and also has long-lasting metabolites as well. Passing a drug test will be iffy before 22d. An even bigger issue is why you feel the need to take so many valium tablets on one day? You may have a high tolerance to benzodiazepines and need help with substance abuse -- or your anxiety is extremely high and you need help with this. Please see your physician. ...Read more

Does Valium calm down overactive nerves ?

Does Valium calm down overactive nerves ?

Not exactly: It is a benzodiazepine and is useful for a very brief, specific emotionally difficult event - like a tragic funeral, etc. Used too much over time, it can actually cause some serious emotional problems. Again - responsible appropriate use can help a person through a hard time - all medications need to be used only as directed. Learn ways to relax - CBT therapy, yoga, meditation, etc. do work.

Is there only 5 mg in the roche 10 valium?

shouldn't be: All medications, whether branded or generic, sold in the United States, are required by the food and drug administration (fda) to have plus or minus twenty per cent of the stated dose to be legal.
So a medication which states 10mg can have between 8 and 12 mgs, which for some patients, may make a noticeable difference in their treatment. But 50 % difference should not be possible. ...Read more
