I definitely wouldn't go any higher than 5 mg. on the Valium though. Unfortunately so many of these young cowboy knuckleheads take stiff doses of benzos and opiates both at the same time, then gripe that the combo is bad, or sent them to the e.r. You got to have a chemist's mind: substituents in just
