I was on Prozac (fluoxetine) and diazepam but getting all the side effects of Prozac (fluoxetine) so decided to not take it, stayed on diazepam, panic/dizzy getting worse.

Also although it's a long-acting medication and has some self-tapering properties because of that, Prozac (fluoxetine) can still cause discontinuation symptoms in some people.

Been prescriebed piracetam.Do it have an interaction with diazepam ? Does it reduce diazepam's effects or does it have interactions with it ?

DrugDrug Interaction: Piracetam is not an fda approved medication in the states and thus i could not find it in my usual spot: www.Drugs.Com. It's always best to tell your doc everything you're taking, whether prescription or over-the-counter. Also include dietary supplements. Be sure to list everything, including flagyl, Levofloxacin ; clonazepam. We don't recommend taking both Clonazepam ; diazepam together. ...Read more
