As always follow the instructions as it is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed. Do not increase your dose voluntarily or take more often than prescribed. Each oral dose is to be taken with a full glass of water. Not to be mistaken in the dose, measure the liquid forms of Valium with a dose-measuring spoon or cup. Valium is known to be habit forming and you wouldn’t want to get into that cycle. Thus It can be easy to become physically and psychologically dependent on the Valium. Remember withdrawal effects may occur in case Valium is stopped suddenly after being used for several weeks. Medical practitioners may recommend a gradual reduction in dosage.
