In brief: A few days
Most side effects will last a few days ( less than a week).
However if you are taking a high dose daily and stop abruptly you may have withdrawal symptoms ( like a seizure) that occurs 7 - 10 days later. This is because valium has a long half life, and so, takes a long time to leave the body.
