Considering the effects wear off fast should I cut the 5mg tablets in half and take half every 6 hours? Any advice with this?
This is something that you should discuss with your doctor.
Maybe someone who has experience with Valium can tell you what has worked for them and you can discuss that with your doctor.
Of all the benzodiazepines valium has one of the longest half lives.
At 5mg the intended effect would not last more than 4 hours but what determines how long the effect lasts is your metabolic rate and your weight. The faster your metabolic rate is the faster the effect wears off. Then there is the weight factor. The bigger you are the higher the dose is needed to achieve the same effect as someone smaller. Another factor is tolerance threshold. 5mg x 2 a day = 2.5mg x 4 a day. I hope this helps.
