I am currently on my first day of taking valium to detox off

Customer Question

I am currently on my first day of taking valium to detox off of alcohol. I have to take one 5mg pill in the morning and one 5mg in the evening. I am still having issues with tremors, sweating and vomiting. I took my first dose at 7am and was having such
bad tremors, etc. that I had to take another at 5:30pm. Is it ok to take half a valium at 1pm to get me through to the evening? I am worried about waking up and having symptoms.

Hi, thanks for the question. Taking additional 1/2 tablet is within the normal dose range but you should consult with your doctor before using it.

OK. Thank you. I would ask my doctor, however my company closed and I have lost my health insurance.
