Valium should be taken orally as instructed by the doctor. It can be taken with or without food. In case, you want to take valium in liquid form, measure the dosage carefully with the help of a measuring cup. Always use a measuring cup as using a household spoon might bring in a possibility that you may not get the wrong dose. In case, you are taking the concentrated form, use a medicine dropper and mix the measured dosage with little quantity of soft food or liquid. The mixture should not be stored for use in future, but finished in one go.
The dosage varies depending upon the age, response to the treatment, and medical condition of the patient. Increasing the dose or consuming the medicine too often or for longer duration than prescribed can be risky. Talk to your doctor, before you take Valium 10mg dose.
