Alcohol and Valium, also known as diazepam, are both depressants If this guy died from the combo of the two it was suicide, you'd have to.

Come on its not like you can go into seizures and die from benzodiazpine withdrawls or anything, oh wait, nevermind you can. Pot helped me get off Benzos, now I am compley sober, but thank god for the pot when I needed it.

This could knock a person into a coma, and then breathing and heart beat could stop.

that is an irresponsible post.

Valium is very strong and mixed with the wrong meds will kill you. More people are dying from prescription medications than in car accidents. People are irresponsible with medicatinos and as a result the number of people dying from accidental overdoses is rising.

Hello Steve. Are you seeing a doctor?. Please check in with a medical professional for an answer to your question.

An overdose of Valium can result in death. Or you can have a serious accident while on Valium. Yes.

My sister went to the er in Las Vegas where they prescribed her Valium from which she took too many and died at 30 of heart failure… Probably from non breathing. I think it’s negligence. Can the physician be sued for not doing a proper mental evaluation? It really upsets me that you can run into a hospital and leave with the weapon to kill yourself.

my son takes at least 30 or more valium at a time every couple wks im so worried about him.he also takes methadone every day and smokes cannibis,its street vallium he takes.i fear hes going to be found dead.please help……

Increase in Suicidal Thoughts and Tendencies

There have, however, been some reports in the literature of an increase in suicidal thoughts and tendencies in individuals who have been treated with diazepam.

Generic and Trade Names of Drugs.

As indicated, cases of an increase in suicidal thoughts and tendencies associated with the use of diazepam have previously been reported. In addition to further cases being presented, two actual suicides and two serious attempts are reported.

Psychopharmacologia 9:81-92, 1966. Gundlach, R., et el: A Double-Blind Outpatient Study of Diazepam (Valium) and Placebo.

This has been a cause for concern to us and, therefore, we are reporting our experience. A smiling depression is a facade manifested by some severely depressed individuals in which the use of denial tends to conceal the underlying depressed affect.
