Hi. There are patients who have a reverse reaction to diazepam and instead of its calming them down it can speed the up, and that can actually be exacerbated when alcohol is added to the mix.

I suggest you let your doctor know about this and were I your doctor I would have you stop the diazepam and I might try something like Wellbutrin for the time being

Please let me know if you need any more information please Sheena
