I wouldn't take any sleeping pills on that bus ride! Sure you will get tired and find it difficult to sleep but you will catch up later after you settle in at your hotel.

You should try to stay a little alert on the bus so that you don't get ripped off by one of the other passengers! (P.S. Don't leave any valuables in the checked in bag on a bus, they may not be there when you claim it!)

Hiya,
Just in case you didn't realise, diazepan is Valium, the anti-depressant. I had to take these for a while, NOT for depression but as a muscle relaxant, which is what they were originally used for. I suffer from hideous muscle aches in my back, which is why I had to take them(backpacking is so not easy) I used to take 2 a day for my back, as an anti-depressant, I think it's at least double this amount. Hope that gives you an insight to this drug. You'll certainly be away with the fairies ;)
