Hello and thanks for the question


One of Valium's side effects are hypotension (low blood pressure), specifically orthostatic hypotension. ...which is a basically a sudden drop in blood pressure when standing.


While it is not used for lowering the blood pressure specifically, low blood pressure can definitely occur.


Yes, taking just one Valium can cause your blood pressure to be lower.



Hope this helps!
