Valium dependence

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know how much valium one has to take to become physically dependent? As part of my percocet taper, for anxiety I've been taking between 1.25-2.5mg (e.g. 1/4-1/2 5mg pill) per day, not necessarily every day. Will this amount for say, another 5-10 days lead to any level of dependence? Is there a "not to exceed" guideline? Tapering one medication is bad enough, I don't want to deal with another!! :-(

Thanks much!!
