Yes. You can OD on Valium.

But a Valium overdose requires high amounts of Valium.  Overdose is also a risk of mixing Valium and alcohol or other drugs.  And given that many drug overdoses are unintentional, it is possible to avoid a Valium overdose. More here on how to avoid accidental Valium overdose or risk factors for Valium overdose. At the end, we invite your questions about Valium and overdose.

Can you overdose on Valium?

Yes, you can overdose on Valium. But it typically takes a very high amount of Valium to cause an OD, unless Valium is being taken with other medications or alcohol.  How much Valium to overdose? The amount of Valium to overdose will vary from person to person, based on your size, tolerance to Valium, and other factors but is about 1,000 times the therapeutic dose of diazepam. Plus, Valium abuse like when you inject or snort Valium increases your risk of addiction, and potentially, overdose. This medication should only be taken swallowed as a whole pill, and only in the doses recommended by your doctor. You’re much more likely to overdose on Valium if you take it with alcohol or other drugs.

What happens when you overdose on Valium?

You’re at a greater-than-normal risk of accidents when you take too much Valium. But taking large amounts of Valium can make you dizzy and impair your judgment, which can put you in danger. And when taken at high doses or mixed with other drugs, Valium can cause a slowed heartbeat or breathing problems.

Slow or shallow breathing is the most dangerous complication of Valium overdose. In some cases, Valium overdose might stop your breathing completely. Other medications combined with the Valium may also cause overdose, or make these effects more pronounced.

How many Valium is too much?

It’s hard to overdose on Valium, but it is possible, especially when combined with other drugs. The recommended daily dose is 4 to 40 mg of Valium throughout the day. Only up to 10 mg of Valium should be taken at one time – less in someone without a tolerance to Valium. People have been reported taking doses of up to 2000 mg Valium without serious effects. That’s about 50 times the maximum recommended daily dose. So Valium is incredibly safe and very difficult to overdose on if taken by itself.

Valium overdose help

While on its own, high doses of Valium are unlikely to cause permanent harm, even low doses of Valium could be fatal if combined with alcohol, narcotics, or other CNS depressants. If you’ve taken Valium in high doses along with alcohol or other drugs and you suspect you may be experiencing an overdose, your prognosis may not be as good. Medical attention is necessary if you start experiencing troubling breathing or experience an irregular heartbeat.

    1. Hi Beth. This might be an emergency situation. It’s very dangerous to mix Valium with alcohol. The alcohol chemically reacts with the Valium in your system and has an additive effect in the body and brain. That means that the effects of the alcohol and Valium both are intensified. This is dangerous and cause overdose or death. You should try to wake her up, and call 911 ASAP!

  1. I been told taking more than 6 valium is not going to do anything if anything it’s a waste,I am prescribed 5mg in my time I done stupid stuff I have taken 25 5mg and it didn’t do anything I was awake I took them to try sleep also being depressed. So really can you die from valium? Maybe my tolerance saved me I don’t know but as I said that 30mg or more won’t do nothing that was said by a Doctor and a old friends Doctor

  2. I just can’t stop alzam or valium. I throw them away and 1day is fine 2nd day buying more.
    Today 4 x10mg valium 1x10mg zolpidem

  3. I’m prescribed 10mg of diazepam 2x daily. I cannot sleep tonight because of nightmares which is the reason for my night dose. I don’t drink or do drugs. Would it be dangerous to take an extra dose in cases like this? Thank you.

  4. Hi there i was reading some messages and to my knowledge the Diazepam that are on our streets are mixed with lethal cheap sedatives and are made in some back yard with a tablet stamper That’s all our doctors WON’T prescribe benzos anymore regardless of your situation and now people who do have a real problem fall back on the web and dealer’s who in some cases ARE REAL VALIUM and the dealers keep making money n KEEPS THE POLICE ACTIVE in some areas doctors won’t help?

  5. A friend of mine said he dissolved 10 diazepam and intend to inject in his vein. I’m concerned. He hasn’t eaten for 2 days and is very depressed. He is taking some antidepressants as well. Could that be fatal?

    1. Hi Gio. Talk with your friend. Also, call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 for an assessment of overdose risk or with help on what to do next.

  6. I have heard that if somebody drinks tea or coffee an hour or so after taking valium, they get a second hit. Is this true and if so, what are the reasons? Thanks

  7. I took 60 diazepam 10’s in one day. What are the symtoms I could experience after and for how long. I can’t move off the couch unless necessary. Was wondering what else to expect and for how long. Thank you can u respond now please

  8. %99 of whole comments are funny and idiotic.I know people that took 150mg xanax and drink 2 bottle of scotch.Diazepam is a really weak benzo when compared to others.But never use street drugs that is the most important thing.There is nothing to be afraid of about diazepam.Dosage change person to person that is not only about height and weight.

  9. Please. I ha be been taking codeine for chronic pain for deeds. Recently I have begun to replace the codeine withcannabis oil which works excellent for pain and I’ll not harm my body like the codeine I have reduced my codeine consider motion by 100mg a day from 150 2x a day. I have done this as the result of a happy accident. The pharmacy was out of the 150’s so gave me 100’s and 50’s. So then I realized I had an opportunity to wean in this way since the oxycodeine cannot be broken in half. This may be a help for anyone else wanted to eliminate pharmaceuticals for more natural treatments. I still do not understand why doctors prescribe these drugs together if it is not safe??? Any answers?

  10. My stepdaughter has been prescribed what appears to be large quantities of valium. First a little background on her, she is 34 years old, appears to have problems with 3 things. First some type of depression ( she stays in bed for days at a time, never goes outside, keeps curtains closed lights off) second she struggles with men ( likes the ones without jobs or ambition, moves them in sometimes two at the same time with her kids living there), she has absolutely no ambition or drive her goal in life was to get on disability so she would not have to work ( she claims she got approved this week). The other issues we have with her is she is a cronic lier, has 15 cats in her home, never bathes. I hate to draw such an ugly but truthful picture but it is what it is. Ive stepped in numeros times over the last 15 years and it started to tear apart my marriage. Yesterday I saw her she had a huge amount of valium and her hands were shaking uncontrollably. Can she actually O.D. from this?

  11. Hi um i just took six 5mg valium which is 30 mg and i’ve only taken valium twice before my first time was 3mg mixed with alcohol but i was fine and then my second time was 6 or 7 during an 8 hour period and i had bad memory problems the next day but anyway its the day after and i just took 6 and smoked weed but how many will it take to over dose? i’m 15 120 pounds and 5′ 4

  12. I take 10 Mgm of Ambien for chronic insomnia. Sometimes I also take 1 Mgm Valium for back spasms. I weigh190 pounds and have had no side effects. Is this safe?

  13. I have been prescribed 4 milligrams a day of Alprazolam. Now I’m taking 40 milligrams of Valium. I think I got a tolerance to the alprazolam. I sustained a traumatic brain injury, hit a9 tree going 55 miles an hour. Dr’s say depression and anxiety go along with a TBI. How will this affect me in the future. I’m 65 years old. One more question, if I build up a tolerance to valium can I go back to the Alprazolam and will that tolerance to the Alprazolam be gone by then. Thank you for an answer to this. I have extreme anxiety in the morning that lasts till mid morning and then is much better as the medication gets in my body. Mayo Clinic called it a rebound effect. TY for an answer.

  14. I’m supposed to take 10 mlg 3x a day Valium , I also take 7.5 mlg hydrocodone and keppra the keppra is taken at bed time , about 10pm 500 milligrams time released 2 at bed time , I was very depressed today and took 8 10 milligram valium , my question is , I’m still not knocked out its been about an hour , should I expect over dose or just a good nights sleep ??

  15. Hi. I just took 6 x 10mg Pax (diazipam). I have a tramadol addiction also and i take between 25-30 x50mg capsules of tramadol per day. I feel absolutely no effects even after more than 1 hours. I keep a very busy schedule and have very severe insomnia, some nights only getting 30mins of sleep. The tramdol bumps me up during the day so i need somthin to chill me down if i wana relax. I have taken 60mgs more than a hour ago and stil have no relief. Please advise. Appreciated

  16. My girl took 14 tablet of diazpam and for Saturday to Tuesday she is still weak and having stomach cramps, how can it be reverse

  17. Thank you Susan for sharing your experience, I relate to all the feelings you had due to your overdose. I was just released from hospital today for the same reason. I too overdosed with 400 mg of diazepam chased down with a bottle of wine. I was found wandering incoherently by a very concerned nearby neighbor 10 hours later. I have no recollection of what happened in between, but I was covered in bruises, scratches etc, and suffering from hyperthermia. There was the police, the ambulance and countless others that came, and everyone was so kind. I felt so ashamed and embarrassed causing such a mess. In the hospital there are people who were really are sick with cancer, strokes etc., but in all honesty I think the pain one feels inside is just as real as theirs. I know it can be just as deadly; I nearly didn’t make it. I still feel depressed but I’ve been set up with a good support team and I’m going to try and deal with it. All the best to you, I hope you are in a better place now.

  18. Currently I am being prescribed 4 mg of Suboxone film. I take it everyday as prescribed and just swallowed five 10mg of Valium, which would be 50 mg, and have never taken it before.. Feeling very great from it at the moment because I would never think of doing herion. Am i at risk of hurting my of being in danger health wise from it? Also, how long would it take to get a clean from a urine screen for it not to show a positive result from benzoburbituiyes?

  19. I am on 5mg diazapam for panic attacks. Well due to being terrified of thunderstorms, I took a pill and a half to relax me before the storms rolled in. Can I OD on 7.5mgs?

    1. Hi Question. The OD amount varies from person to person depending on drug tolerance level, body metabolism, duration of use, etc. If you don’t feel well, call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 for an assessment of overdose risk or with help on what to do next.

  20. I can honestly say I take over 100 10mg of blues a day, no ill effects, drowsy bit unsteady on my feet but that’s it, diazepam is a waste of fucking time, I’m finishing my stash going cold turkey and not wasting time or money with this lower drug, if u can’t handle life without meds, then don’t live

  21. Hi, I was very stupid recently by mixing street diazepam with lots of alcohol. (I suffer from severe depression).
    If my friend hadn’t been there, I would be dead! I swallowed a whole tub of diazepam after consuming copious amounts of booze. I can’t remember doing it!
    My friend phoned an ambulance because I wasn’t responding & my lips were blue. I deteriorated in the ambulance. I was comatosed & I stopped breathing, I had to be resuscitated!
    I woke up in hospital feeling embarrassed, ashamed, stupid & felt a total burden when the nurses & doctors should have been treating somebody with a genuine serious illness.
    Needless to say I will never ever repeat this mistake.
    I have been referred to a mental health team & can’t wait to get my life back on track again.
    Never in my life have I felt so dumb!
    So this is a warning to all. Do not mix Valium with alcohol or any other drug!
    Cheers for reading.

  22. A relative died at 47, she was taking Valium regularly, it was 45 minutes from the time we saw her alive until we found she had died. Is it possible to die that quickly of a Valium overdose? There was no as if involved. No autopsy was done.

    1. Hi, Lynn. I’m truly sorry for your loss. We’re not able to provide you with a qualified response. Also, the autopsy report discloses cause of death, so the family should have asked for.

  23. Alvararenga, Yes, ? the devil’s drug. I overdosage myself in September from 2015, I took 60 pills of Diazepam 10mg. I went from hospital to hospital doctors save my life. I’m so grateful with God because he gave me another chance to be alive. But I notice that I’m slow when it comes to react fast.

    1. Hi, Amanda. Please consider that it is illegal to consume medications other than prescribed, and you put yourself at risk. If you don’t fell well, call 911 ASAP.

  27. Everyone around me thought I was just the normal person I was and that I was being silly.. And I realised something was wrong I just got laughed at.. These were NOT dreams dreams do not scare the living daylight out of me or make me want to be in reality… It’s taken me 30 minuites to work out if I’m just in another flash back or not… I feel fine now, wobbly, dry eyes mouth, tiny head ache, itchy, still tired but scared to relax

  30. Hi. I abused alchol from 14 to 19 yo. Then I smoked mariuana for 6 years. I stopped because i consumed 5-7 grams on bongpipe everyday (about every 20 minutes) last year, mixing sometimes with alchol, cocaine and purified tropanic alchaloids. Doctor prescribed me only 5mg twice a day and fluvoxamine because im stupid liar and dont want my parents worry to much.

I was in a bad state of mind and obviously suicidal. My niece came to my home and woke me up as I had left an email for her that evening and she read it that morning. I remember her waking me up but she said she had a hard time. And then she left me and I slept for 30 hours. That was last weekend. Now I am worried that I caused hypoxia. I cannot think clearly I’m having difficulty remembering things and difficulty with normal movement. Is this something that will go away or perhaps did I do permanent damage from lack of oxygen.???? Sad sad sad.

  42. Hi is there anyone who can help me please? I have some questions about an overdose I had 6 months ago exactly, I took about a gram and a half of cocaine along with about 15 tablets of diazepam 5mg each all within a period of about 5 hours, & now I have gotten a chronic case of vertigo about a month ago everyday I have been with vertigo & Im wondering if this is the consequences of what I did. Another factor is that I have been buying some weed about a year before this but noticed within the last couple of months that my dealers where trying to tell me something, they where warning me that it was laced with some bad stuff but I ignored it, & this was the main reason why I quit smoking weed & drinking alcohol, because I started to notice for the first time the effects of vertigo when smoking weed, & it was slowly increasing a bit at a time, when I finally realized that my dealers where trying to warn me that the weed was laced with bad chemicals, that’s when I realized that they where trying to tell me so I immediately quit, & since I quit, my vertigo has gotten worse & really bad, but, I have also noticed that recently it has been decreasing, but it comes & goes, & it seemed like I was doing better this past 2 weeks until 2 days ago I felt my vertigo come back real strong. The strange thing is that my doctors prescribed me diazepam I take it only when I get bad vertigo & it actually helps me & my vertigo goes away. Last week I went 3 days without taking diazepam until I felt the vertigo was too much for me. & this week I went 4 days without diazepam until again my vertigo came back stronger. My doctors have prescribed me at first serc 16 & 8 but I felt it didn’t work, so they prescribed me dogmatail & some other medication & it also didn’t work, it seemed like my vertigo got worse, until one doctor gave me diazepam & strangely enough, it got rid of ,my vertigo. So now Im trying to figure out what is happening to me exactly? Another factor is that I was just recently diagnosed with Cervical Artrosis which is the degenerating of my upper neck bones, its in the beginning stages, so I don’t think that’s the main cause of my vertigo although my doctor said it may be a possibility, but my doctor agreed with me more that this is most likely from the bad marijuana I had been smoking for about a year, the thing is that in the last 3 months is when my weed dealers where trying to warn me that the weed was laced with bad chemicals, so That’s what Im thinking. What are your opinions? Should I go to a doctor who specializes in vertigo or to one who knows about drug abuse? Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi Rafael. Just because two things happen one after the other doesn’t have to mean that the first caused the second. It is possible that there is a correlation between the OD and your case of chronic vertigo, but only more tomorrow tests and examinations can tell the specific origin of the problem. If you are determined to get to the bottom of this, I agree that only doctors who are specialists in their area can help you learn the details.

  43. hi i have been a recreational drug user since ive left year 12… three years since ive finished ive partied hard most weekends… ive had alot of black oit experiences with valium, one occasion i woke up in a car crash not recognosing my friends. i had another blackout 2 days after consuming 15 5mg vals woke up with bruises and cuts over me and all my cash gone, no recollection at all… i want help but im too much in love with the feeling i get from these drugs and i dont want to go baxk to thw straighten arrow because i dont see the point… im scared one day ill havw to many valliums and od or something… what dose would be lethalfor a 6ft4 male 80kg extremely hifh tolerance…. help

  44. Thank you for getting back to me, we are monitoring him closely and he is in a support group and therapy. Currently he is good at taking his medication, he has been prescribed Latuda. I have heard anti depressant, valium and alcohol can be fatal. Is that tue? If so we plan on personally administering his meds and not allowing him access. There is no alcohol in the house and we have a safe to lock the meds up.

    1. Hi again Cody. That’s great! In times like these the love and support your family gives is precious and your brother is lucky to have you. Yes, there are some potentially serious side effects from mixing pills and alcohol, for the particular case of mixing Valium and alcohol you can read more in that article.

  45. Hello, I have a great question. I lost my meds, well I threw them away by accident. I take 15 mgs of oxycodones. I have some 10/325’s left over from an earlier script. If I take it will it show up as the same in a urine test. I will be so careful not to get rid of me meds like that. Please help.

  46. i took five valium fives and drank a forty oz beer after…im scared i didnt take the valiums all at once…and drank the beer after….should i make myself puke

    1. Hi Scared. You can call the Poison Control Center on 1-800-222-1222 FREE to talk to a poison expert. You will get a free over-the-phone assessment of the overdose risk and instructions on what to do next.

  47. I have a brother who is on valium the doctor took him off of restoril and we are concerned he will mix the two with alcohol should he reach another depressive state in his treatment. should we hide/throw out the restoril? Is it dangerous if my brother mixes valium alcohol and the sleeping pill restoril? We want to make sure it poses no danger to him should he get a hold of it. Thank you

    1. Hi Cody. Sorry to fall behind on answering your question regarding your brother. If the doctor took him off Restoril, he no longer has the need for it. So, Yes, one way to prevent him from abusing the Restoril is to dispose of the medication. You can also get rid of all alcoholic beverages around the house. If you fear he might go out and buy alcohol in case of a depressive episode, I can only suggest that he should be helped not to get into a depressive state. Is he going to counseling or psychotherapy meetings? Also, you and everyone in your family may benefit from counseling and get prepared on how to recognize symptoms of depression and approach your brother before he puts himself in danger.

  48. Haley..o/ding on diazepam (valium) is quite difficult …but not impossible especially if alcohol is involved.the breathing reflex will be suppressed ….you could choke and asphyxiate.there is an antidote available FLUMAZENIL,but if he is an addicted to valium and on high regular doses it could be dangerous ,causing a sudden withdrawal… with all drugs of addiction,reducing the dose gradually is paramount.good luck!

    1. Hi Haley. Call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 to get a free over-the-phone assessment of the overdose risk and instructions on what to do next. If your boyfriend is feeling worse get him to the hospital or if you cannot drive Call 911.

  49. Hi there
    I am extremely concerned, about my mental state of mind! I feel quite confused, my concentration is very poor, i have blocked thoughts etc. I just thought to ask is this from the excessive amount of diazepam that i used the other day. I took 60mg within 6 hours and I am just wondering can it cause any brain damage or serotonin syndrome?!
    Thank you

    1. Hi again Bekim. Unfortunately, I cannot say what is causing your mental fogging over the computer. I’d suggest it’s best to go and see your doctor, especially if you feel the problem is persistent and doesn’t subside. I believe a doctor will be able to give you solid and real answers after adequate tests and examinations have been done.

    1. Hello Bekim. The recommended daily dose is 40mg taken throughout the day. 60mg withing 6 hours sounds like a lot. You can Call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222 to get a free over-the-phone assessment of the overdose risk and instructions on what to do next.

  50. Hi he had smoked cannabis too. But was other than that the 9 vallium or diazapam. Having done some research I did find an article that said in very few cases it can cause opposite effect and make you have a violent rage especially if your body is intolerant to it. He’s fine now just mortified as to what he has done. I’ve been trying to convince him to go to hospital to be checked over but he is reluctant.

  51. Hello Kelly. Valium is a central nervous system depressant and does not usually provoke anger or rage. I’d suggest that you get him drug tested (either urine or hair) to verify what other substance(s) may have been in his system at the time.

  52. Hi I am after some answers please my 17 year old was given vallium by a woman that had been taking them. He returned home and became violent ending in him being taken away by the police it turns out he took 9 of them. For 6 hours he was in a massive rage at the police station and this is so out of character for him. He is still at the station now but despite being beaten up by my usually placid son I am worried he has caused long term damage. This is first time he has ever taken these and god knows what possessed him to take 9 I don’t know the mg he took in each tablet I just know the boy I saw last night was not my boy. The police have been checking on him but as I said it took them 6 hours to calm him down enough to have a medical quickly check him over. I can’t help but worry he should have been taken to hospital and now it’s been in his system 24 hours what damage has been caused. I am beside myself with worry.

  60. I have been taking diazepam(Valium) since 1974 which at i’ts peak was 50/90 mgs a day. I am on 2 mgs now,14 tablets to last me 30days…,been tapering off for 2 years now…,it does work..honest! the withdrawal symptoms at first were psychological and physiological..but after a while it was just psychological. That is now diminishing.p.s. like my red wine though.can’t believe I passed my driving test on 60mgs of Valium,(I am not proud of that!) on a more serious note the NHS made me an addict but in the seventies they were handed out like sweets.heroin addicts get methadone support..smokers get their nicotine patches benzo addicts get sweet F A.(ps. Stopped smoking 31 years ago.,40 a day.)that was a walk in the park compared to benzo addiction!!hope this might offer some help to those who are struggling at this moment with any benzo issues! Truly the devil’s drug!

I am ready to call
