I was prescribed 1mg valium for my 6# XXXXX to travel. We are planning on moving tomorrow. I was wondering if I could give her a dose now (for anxiety, she is really freaking out about the packing) and then tomorrow when we are actually on the road. Not sure if that would put too much in her system. Thanks!

Hello. Thank you for asking your question. My name isXXXXX will try to help.

I think that would be fine.

If she still seems sedated in the morning, then do not give anymore until she is anxious again.

Just bring some valium in the car with you.

Valium is very safe.

I hope this helps.
