This answer was rated:

I was diagnosed with ocd and will be flighting in an hour. I was prescribed valium to take cause I have severe flight nervousness. The dose is 5mg before the flight and on the airplane. I believe the dose is very little and I want to take the maximum dose I can which won't hurt me (overdose). How much and when should I take it? Also, my body weight is around 98 kgs mostly muscles.

Anthony Bray MD :
