    One common side effect of diazepam is drowsiness. Drinking alcohol can also make you sleepy, so combining alcohol with diazepam could make you extremely drowsy. As a rule, it's probably not a good idea to drink any alcohol while taking diazepam. If you have a history of alcohol abuse, tell your doctor before taking diazepam.
