Some people are apprehensive and cautious about taking prescription drugs. When it comes to Valium, the risks of any unpleasant consequences is quite low while the efficacy is high. But AddictionResource authors highlight two rules in case of abidance by which those guarantees are true.
Firstly, take the dosage that was prescribed by your doctor. Don’t increase it in the hope to reach faster or better relief. You’ll only feel worse due to possible side effects provoked by consuming too much of the medication. If you need to identify your Valium pills, match them to the images in our infographic. You’ll find out their strength and brand.
Secondly, take your medication on time. Set reminders or install some medication schedule app. But different things can happen. Let’s say you went somewhere and left your pills at home. Or your smartphone was discharged and you missed a notification. What to do in situations like this?
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you come home or remember about it. If it’s already near the time of your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next pill at the regular time. But don’t take two doses of Valium at once. You can get an overdose.
