Diazepam injection interacts with a number of drugs as well as alcohol, so it is important to tell your doctor what medications (both prescription and over the counter) and supplements you are taking. Diazepam injection can have an increased effect when taken with alcohol, antihistamines, sedatives, allergy medications, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, some anesthetics, cold medicine, muscle relaxants, seizure medications, and antidepressants, making you drowsier than if you'd taken diazepam alone.
