In brief: What was the dosage?

The seriousness of this issue is dependent on your age, body weight, and how many milligrams of diazepam you actually took.
It will probably make you sleepy and will not cause you further harm. Do not drink any alcohol with this. It also depends on what other medications you take. If in doubt, contact poison control and or call the emergency department at your local hospital.
