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...

Most likely: Since you say it was your first use, and you are presumably healthy, then most likely it will be cleared from your urine by January 8. It is usually detectable for up to 5-7 days. 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

Been prescribed diazapam 2 mg for anxiety but it doesent seem to do anything is this the usaual dose for this or not.

Tolerance: 2mg is a low dose of diazepam. It is a medicine that induces tolerance, or the need for gradually higher doses for the same effect. You may need a higher dose than you're currently taking to control input symptoms. Please note that benzodiazepines are not a good long-term solution for anxiety because of tolerance and habituation factors -- psychotherapy, however, can be much longer lasting. ...Read more

Any advice on how to safely stop taking diazepam?

Gradual taper: Depends upon how much you are taking and how long you have been on it, but decreasing your dose by 2-5 mg every 3-5 days is a reasonable goal.

Diazepam itself has a half life of 3-4 days and the active metabolite has a half life of over a week which means that some of it will be in your body a month ...Read more
