I was wondering if valium was a derivative of the herb valerian root. I have often heard valerian called "natures valium.
Any info would be appreciated. [:I]

Valerian is a natural herb while valium (diazepam) is a synthetic chemical compound. These two drugs have NO derivatisation relationship. The reason why Valerian is called "nature valium" is that both Valerian and valium can treat anxiety and insomnia, with valerian being a natural compound.
