HelloA single use should be out of your system in one week.It is unlikely you will test positive.You can not get a doctor to write you a prescription to "prove" you had a prescription. That would be highly illegal.I think your chances are good to pass at this point. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.

I hope I haven't svrewed myself. I don't take Valium's often but over the course of 1 week I ate 38 10mg Valium's. I have a very high metabolism and drink lots of water would those help with a clean drug test

Heavy use can show up longer.If it has been a week before the test, still a chance to pass.Less than that, probably not.There is no way to wash it out, etc. Those are myths. please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

I have a different answer for youIt will very likely show in your urine test. Benzodiazepines like Valium can stay in the system a pretty long time. It depends on how much you take and for how long. Also on your general health, age, and weight. All of this determine the elimination half life. Following ingestion, Valium first goes through an initial distribution phase that is followed by a long terminal elimination phase. The terminal elimination phase half-life for valium is on average, 100 hours. It takes 5.5 x elimination half lives (hours) for a medicine to be cleared from your system, therefore Valium will be in your system for 550 hours (5.5 x 100hrs) i.e. approximately 23 days.
