I was taking Valium for a year. It is a very effective medication, but it is better to take it with a prescription. At first, it calmed my nerves and then I couldn’t do without him. Once I took Valium Diazepam together with wine and I couldn’t remember anything in the morning. My husband told me what I had done before and I felt so ashamed that I will never take Valium with alcohol again. And it doesn't act like alcohol, it acts worse than alcohol. You just need to mix some alcohol with Valium and you will immediately fall asleep.
