Not so likely. At this point, the risk of becoming dependent on this addictive class of meds is clear; if you are taking this meds without your dr approval. In most cases, such dose and period of time do not constitute a high risk of seizures or death for withdrawal really. Try to avoid dependency on benzodiazepines.
Mild withdrawal. You can certainly have mild withdrawal symptoms from valium 5mg, if you had been taking it regularly. It's long-acting -- meaning it will take longer to completely eliminate from your body than other, shorter-acting benzos would take. Withdrawal symptoms start later & may last longer too. Seizures & death are not likely from this dose, though. Be safe -- tell your doctor about this.

He may in fact need a daily medication, but which one and what dose varies by seizure type and cause, and you can make some seizures worse with the wrong medication.
