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.
