    Hello

     

    I have to ask...are you sure you are not asking for yourself?  Can you describe the situation you are worried about.  If it is a friend you are talking about...does he have acess to valium?  Has he made any suicidal threats? 

     

    The New York Times has a good reference about Valium Overdose symptoms.

     

    If this were to happen you would want to take him to the nearest emergency room.  As Eileen has mentioned...valium and alcohol can be a deadly mixture. 

     

    Let us know more details and we can try to help you more.  Thank you for your question.

    Thank you for your question and welcome to AnxietyConnection.com.

     

    I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice. If you are concerned for your friend's well-being, you should seek the advice of a doctor or, in an emergency, call 9-1-1.

     

    It would be impossible to say how much would cause an overdose. It is not recommended that Valium and alcohol be mixed at all.
