    The Cat likes to treat himself to some Valium on the odd occasion. He'd like to note that he only uses it recreationally and very rarely. There has been a time when he's felt relatively heavy effects on just 15mg, and a later time where he's dropped over 100mg without falling asleep for at least a couple of hours -- heavy effects were still felt nonetheless. Maybe the tablets he took weren't at their advertised 10mg? The Cat suffered from short-term memory loss for a couple of days after this high dosage and was slightly more clumsy for a few hours, but there were no major side effects.

    When prescribed, doctor's claim that 5mg of Valium is a relatively high dosage. The Cat can't seem to find any accurate information on safe dosages of using Valium recreationally. The Cat will always start off by only dropping a couple of Valium to be on the safe side before he ventures out into dropping larger amounts. What he wants to know is what is considered a safe dosage to venture out to without suffering too many severe side effects or worse? Any added information on dosages would be highly appreciated. He most recently dropped Valium branded as MSJ.

    Regards

    Re: High Valium dosage

    Up to 100mg is a hefty dose for an occasional user. Had the Cat had a meal before taking it? Even 15 mg would have me on my arse. The last time my Uncle Baldylocks had diazepam was a few years ago, and 2.5 mg had a good effect. It sounds as if the pills the Cat had were of dubious provenance, maybe they weren't as advertised.
    Another possible cause is that the Cat has a higher tolerance than he realises, which might imply that use is more frequent than the Cat realises. 100 mg is also the highest single dose of diazepam my follicularly disadvantaged uncle ever took. He had been on nights for a while and had built up quite a tolerance. It's surprising that he did not end up with withdrawals when he stopped using.
    Diazepam is relatively safe in that it is hard to OD on fatally when taken orally, unless other medications and substances are added. CNS depressants, including alcohol, are potentiated by diazepam.
    The maximum prescribed dose of diazepam is 30mg daily, in divided doses. There is a risk posed by errors of judgement, especially for occasional users. Things can get quite confusing when high doses are taken.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    The Cat had eaten a substantial meal before dropping the Valium. His last experience had been a few days prior to this where he'd dropped 50mg. His experience prior to that one had been several months where he'd dropped the 15mg. The Cat trusts his source as it has had a lot of positive feedback. Thank you for your response. Anyone else?

    Re: High Valium dosage

    I've heard so many stories about people taking 100-150mg of Valium a day. WTF? How? If I take a 5mg val I'll be on my ass zoned all day, and I usually take 2-5mg of Klonopin a day.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    My val is prescribed so is pharmacueticaly trustworthy. I also only take it occasionally and do not do any other drugs or drink alcohol. Because my tolerance is so low, any more than 10mg just sends me to sleep after about 30 minutes. If i take it several times daily, after about 4-5 days I build tolerance so would need up to double the amount to relieve my anxiety and after about 10 days I dont get high at all, just monged out from the accumulated dosage. Bu I can't imagine having a 100mg dose, I think it would knock me unconscious - I think either you're used to harder drugs? or very obese or are taking it more or less everyday, or your pills are not pure. The overdose level is supposed to be 40mg, all that happens is that you sleep, but are at risk of dying from suppressing your breathing and other cns functions. If you drink with it, you're at risk of choking from vomit inhalation. Take care x

    "lol that bad rep didnt get the message of my post, anyways im on a 150mg of diazepam/day and i feel better than ever, i feel like, perfect, unless i smoke a cigg or smoke a joint then i have to take some more, anyways, your numbers are not correct otherwise i should be dead, my tolerance was low when i started i was doing 100mg or so and didnt die or anything,

    also if i take too much mixed with weed i get this feeling of heaven and stuff like that, sometimes, and i have trouble sleeping, sometimes.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    Diazepam, as with all Benzo's, can be evil stuff and I know many people who take huge amounts with no ill effects, this does not mean, however, that it is safe to do so. As has been previously mentioned, the maximum recommended dose is 30mg divided into 2 doses.

    Personally, I take 5mg when needed, this is becoming rarer and rarer thankfully as I do not wish to be addicted.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    My pet duck is on 30mg daily prescribed, but right now is down to one 10mg a day, somtimes every second day. Daffy has been on this for 5 yrs now, and used to take the full 30mg a day, but has hiself down to the 10, he tried taking 5mg each day, instead of 10mg once every two days, but found he was better on the one 10mg when required.

    He is looking to take this down further, however he is pally with a swan who has been known to have taken up to 300mg in oners before, when being stupid, and all it seemed to do was make her incredibly(more)stupid for the following few days, clumsy and very very drowsy, after waking up after the 2hour crash after they took effect.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    Just because you didn't die, doesn't mean others won't. Please be more careful when giving out information like this.

    100mg is a very high dose of valium for someone with no tolerance and is likely to knock them off their feet. While the drug alone may not kill them, they could well suffer injury or worse through their actions while under the influence of such a high dose.

    To the OP: If I were you, I'd work slowly up to find the dose that you require to get the feeling you want, and then note that dose down. After that, i would do all I could to refrain from increasing it, or taking it too regularly.

    Otherwise, you run the risk of increased tolerance, or addiction.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    "im giving my personal experience, that doesnt count? obviously if someone shoots IV 100mg of diazepam would probably die (ME WANT) but i was doing it slowly through the day under the tongue and it has an anti-od called Hematropine Metilbromure or something like that."

    My friend said that, dont know his name, never told it to me, i think its in my imagination... and i have no creativity so this is weird!

    Re: High Valium dosage

    the thing about benzodiazepines, including diazepam, is that a tolerance builds up quite fast with regular use.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    "strange, im lowering my dose, i feel a bit of withdrawals sometimes but im okay, im not slowing that fast either, also smoking lots of weed, ciggs, and coffee, so its a combination of counter effects.

    I wanna stop smoking because i get the effect divided by 10x but when im soooo relaxed i wanna light one... f****** nicotine addiction : /


    Aso something that happens to me is that sometimes when im lowering my dose more considerably just to see how it goes (i know diazepam has 200h life in the organism so ive not experienced abstinence really, not even close) Anyways i suddenly feel (probably after smoking a cigg) like SHIT and i have to take 30 mg or so in 2 times (5mg pills under the tongue) or i feel like the old me >.> sad, depressed, paranoid, retarded, stupid, low self esteem etc etc etc"


    Said by my friend, i dont know why i call him friend if i dont even know his real name...

    Re: High Valium dosage

    Saddened to hear about your friend, Braincells. It sounds like they're having a problem with benzo addiction.
    I would like to ask if the valium was medically prescribed? If not then perhaps medical supervision may be a preferable option for monitoring the present effects, and possible self-elective safe withdrawal from it.

    The OP is rightly concerned about their consumption of diazepam. The dosage(s) mentioned can be difficult to physically or psychologically manage without medical guidance. As mentioned before in areas of this forum, truly long term undesirable withdrawal symptoms can ensue in times of drought, or even self imposed partial (or full) abstinence can result in epileptiform seizures.

    Be safe.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    I didnt know that, that 30mg id the highest dose a doctor can prescribe daily. Swim as a well high tolerance of diazepam even when I am not taking it regular. The most swim ever took of diazepam orally, the 5mg yellow tablet was about 500mg, equal to half a gram, shit my friend of a friend worked at a drugs company and he smhuggled out a big tub of legit 5mg diazepam. There must a been well easy over a few thousand of them. The 500mg put swim in a trance like effect but it wasnt a relax kind of time a chilled out vibe wasnt how I would describe it but a energetic angry buzz that left swim more confused and angry (thogh swim never got violent) at the world. Swim never touched a drop of alcohol through this. To be honest it wasnt a thing he'd ever do again even if he could get hold of 500mg of valium.

    Re: High Valium dosage

    Back when I was 17 my parents insisted I give up smoking hash and took me to the doctor. I had very little exp. with any drugs at the time except for a few daily smokes. The doc gave me 50 5mg valium tablets, I cant remember what the prescribed dose was. Anyhow, that evening I took the first couple. A while later I took another few. The thing is, after the first few they made my incredibly foggy minded and stupid, and being a stupid young man I ended up taking the whole 50 of them over the night.
    I dont remember taking any more after the first 10 or so. In fact I dont remember anything except waking up in hospital about 36 hours after my last memories. Im sure I didnt clinically OD and could have slept it off at home but I believe my parents were concerned for me and brought me to hospital anyhows.
    I certainly didnt mean to take the whole lot its just they do make one incredibly foggy in the head and it probably did seem like a good idea at the time.
    To this day I'd be very reluctant to take them again, tho I have take perhaps 10 5mg tabs in the last 10 years and only then when I couldnt sleep due to chronic back pain, and even then no more than 10mg at a time, which did the trick nicely. Its certainly not a drug Id plan on abusing in the future. I cant remember their being any 'come down' as such other than a groggy stupid head, but perhaps thats part of the allure of valium.
    Iv seen ppl I know totally fucked on high doses and its not a pretty sight, I mean their just pure stupid, deffo not a drug you would want to be operating machinary or such under the influence of a heavy dose, or even going out in public for that matter, its a very suttle and creeping brain fryer in my honest opinion, and while not as obviously dangerous as other downers, deffo very addictive and demanding of respect, as are all drugs.
    All the best, warrior

    Re: High Valium dosage

    One question?

    2mg alprozolam tablets is indicated for anxiety. But 0, mg of it is equal to 10 mg diazepam.
    So, 40 mg diazepam is equal to 2 mg alprozolam tablets.

    Why alprozlam 2 mg tablets is not a high-dose while 4 10 mg valium tablets are high-dose? (and why are they produce 40 mgs of valium tabs)
