Yes: Yes. It is a thioxanthine derivative and is a typical antipsychotic marketed outside the us. It's other name is flupenthixol and it may be taken with valium.

A 21-year-old male asked:

Can u take vitamins with diazepam?

Check it out 1st: Vitamin preparations state their contents clearly on the label. Look at what you most likely will try and note the contents. Discuss this with the prescribing physician and see if there are any contraindications to taking that particular brand with diazepam. Better to be safe and ask.
A 36-year-old member asked:

How strong is Valium or diazepam?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Myra Skluth

Strong based on dose: Diazepam is usually prescribed in 2.5, 5 or 10 mg doses. The effect of the medication is dose dependent. It is a "rescue" mediciation, not a controller. If you are panicky, it will help you to relax. But there are medications which can help to prevent those anxious feelings in the first place, ssris. Never use diazepam with alcohol!
A 37-year-old member asked:

How long could you take diazepam (valium) before the drug is useless?

Longer than U think: If taken orally (as most people do) it takes the average young healthy person about a day to get rid of half the drug they took. This metabolism is prolonged further with use of alcohol. So best advice.... Several days would be a safe interval.
A 36-year-old member asked:

I'm frightened of flying will diazepam (valium) help?

Yes, but no alcohol: Diazepam will help to deal with anxiety about flying. Do not take with alcohol. It would also be helpful to have a guided imagery recording on your ipod, which will help you to relax more naturally. If you must fly often, you should consider working with a therapist to de-sensitize yourself and work on your phobia.
