Possibly: It would depend on the dosage, your overall condition and the treatment plan. Sometimes they are prescribed together.Sometimes valium might be used until the Prozac (fluoxetine) reaches a therapeutic level and then it is tapered off. Long term use of valium can lead to dependency on it. You should discuss the game plan with your doctor. Just because you can take them together doesn't mean that you should.

Phentermine+BZD+SSRI: This is a question best answered by the prescribing physician. Anxiety, insomnia and depression can all be adversely affected by the combination. Habit formation due to underlying depression as well as due to the re-enforcing effects of valium and phenermine may set in. Better options are probably available.
