Brief Answer:
You can take Valium.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam,
You can take Valium with the medicines you are on.
I usually prescribe my patients(who are on blood thinning medicines like you) Cap Tramadol for pain relief twice a day.
The only concern is that the Rib injury can lead to bleeding inside due to the blood thinning medicines you are on. Therefore, I suggest you get the injured area looked at by a Doctor.
And try to avoid any injury as the blood thinners will lead the clotting mechanism to be delayed.
Do let me know if there are any other concerns about this issue.
Take care,
Dr Rishi, New XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
