Half life often has little relation to how long therapeutic effect lasts. All I can say is that I've used Valium and it doesn't last that long for me & I've never met anyone for which it lasts so long.

DEA agents, being on par with Nazi war criminals, should be executed for crimes against humanity. They are guilty of inflicting mass suffering upon legitimate patients.

the effects of valium last at least 24 hours for me. Maybe not the peak effects but I definitely feel reduced anxiety for at least 24 hours. Oh course I take it every day so I'm sure The level of it is just steady in my system. Of all the benzos I've tried, Valium has had the longest lasting noticeable effects.

If you are going to go by a benzodiazepines efficacy. The only measure is going to be half life. And regular use will increase the blood plasma level expeditionary. Metabolism and other factors play a role from one person to another, I can feel the effects of diazepam longer then the effects of clonazepam. But both give me anxiolytic effects. Klonopin is much less sedating then valium in my case. so it is my first choice.
