What are some of the special concerns about this anti anxiety medicine? 

Valium is known to cause drowsiness or inability to pay full attention to activities which require concentration.  You should not drive or operate dangerous machinery until you're sure of how you respond to this anti anxiety medicine.  Also, you should take special precautions if you have liver or kidney problems. 

In addition to the Valium side effects, what are some of possible food and drug interactions while taking this anti anxiety medicine? 

In addition to concerns about Valium side effects are concerns about the interactions of this anti-anxiety drug  with various foods and other medications. Valium has a slowing effect on the central nervous system and also may intensify the effects of alcohol.  Obviously, you should not drink when taking this anti anxiety medicine.  If Valium is taken with other medications, the effects of these medicines may increase, decrease or be altered in some way.  You should always check with your physician prior to taking Valium with any of the following medicines: 

  • Antiseizure drugs such as Dilantin

  • Antidepressant drugs such as Elavil and Prozac

  • Barbiturates such as Phenobarbital

  • Cimetidine (Tagamet)

  • Digoxin (Lanoxin)

  • Disulfiram (Antabuse)

  • Fluoxetine (Prozac)

  • Isoniazid (Rifamate)

  • Levodopa (Larodopa, Sinemet)

  • Major tranquilizers such as Mellaril and Thorazine

  • MAO Inhibitors (antidepressant drugs such as Nardil)

  • Narcotics such as Percocet

  • Omeprazole (Prilosec)

  • Oral contraceptives

  • Propoxyphene (Darvon)

  • Ranitidine (Zantac)

  • Rifampin (Rifadin)

Valium side effects: Should you take this anti anxiety medicine if you're pregnant or breast-feeding? 

You should not take Valium if you're pregnant or are planning on becoming pregnant in the near future, as there may be an increased risk in birth defects.  If your physician determines that it is absolutely necessary to continue taking this medicine you should probably discontinue breast-feeding until you're treatment has been finished.
