The dosage strength for diazepam pills is in 2, 5, and 10mg increments, and the liquid concentration is 5mg/5ml. The condition being treated and the medical history of the patient are the determining factors in both the strength and form prescribed. While the circumstances of each patient vary, the diazepam medicine is usually taken one to four times a day, with or without food. With a doctor’s approval and supervision, it may be possible to split larger dosages of this medication into smaller ones.
