Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes you should.

Gabapentin, diazepam, and codydramol can all cause excessive sleepiness and drowsiness.

Can even affect breathing as well.

Alcohol can potentiate their effects manifold.

Hence, this is considered a dangerous combination.

Hence, it is better to avoid alcohol.

There should be at least 2-3 hours interval between these 3 medications to avoid excessive drowsiness etc.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
