I am a double board certified US doctor, clinical doctor, which means I have been the doctor to certify patients for operations , pre op, for over 20 years.
In fact, since you have never taken valium before, you do not have a tolerance. It is thus not only easier to overdose , when one has no tolerance, but it is also true that one pill, per your doctors prescription[controlled
substance] is likely to relax you.
In fact, preoperatively there is no reason to take more, as anesthesia will see you pre operatively, you will have an IV in and they can deliver more effective medications as needed.
In other words, the oral medication is simply to get things started.
What ever they do after that will be tailored to the situation, and precise.
Worrying about one or two valium is a non issue. Your doctor can give you the strength you need in one pill, and make sure you are not trying to take an extra pill on your own out of anxiety. Do any of this
only in conjunction with your doctor.
