Can I take valium?

Bad idea. Valium especially i with older adults can increase risk of falls and confusion. Would avoid it.
Depends. It depends what you take it for, at what dosage and for how long. It depends on your health overall and if you are taking any other meds as drug interaction may happen. It should not be taken for a long period of time as it can cause dependance.
Valium lasts long. Valium is a sedative-hypnotic with an extremely long half-life. This medication is particularly dangerous when other medications are taken on a regular basis. Antibiotics (cipro, levaquin) , cholesterol medications known as statins as well as Coumadin (warfarin) can potentiate the possible side effects of valium. It can be used but a high degree of caution must be exercised by you and your doctor.
Valium ? I agree w dr. Kenneth that at u age valium can cause multiple side effect sedation falls , and memory decline.

I want to know how long can I take Valium 10 mg without being dependent. It is prescribed and I'm not taking more pills.

Dependency. There is a difference between using diazepam as it is intended and addiction (when you take more than necessary to obtain a positive feeling). Unfortunately, there aren't any concrete rules on how long it takes. Best bet is always to take the lowest dosage of any medicine for the shortest duration possible to achieve an adequate result. Hope that helps! Read more...
Some people. take it for 2 weeks and get dependent. Some others take it for a year and not get dependent. So it depends on how your genetic makeup is and if you have an addictive personality disorder. But on average I believe 1-2 months would be all it takes to grow dependent on a substance that is well known to be addictive. Hope this helps. Read more...

I've just had 473ml of redbull (wouldn't be able to cope with workload otherwise) can I take valium in about 30mins-1h as I'll be done with work soon?

Quick fix not answer. Redbull might perk you up and Valium might calm you down but that is not the best approach. You should have a physical check up to be sure everything is ok and then discuss with your doctor how to deal with your energy levels. Getting proper sleep is important and a mental health evaluation might also be in the mix. Read more...
