Brief Answer: No. Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your query. I usually never advise my patients to take medicines by remembering their colors or some thing written on it because in market may type of medicines look alike. Although diazepam tablet is blue in color; has P marked on one side and the other side has XXXXXXX 5620. Still be cautious to use it .You can use magnifying glass to see what is written on strip. You may ask some body to help you. Always consult regarding dose of diazepam and do not take it without a prescription. I hope you have get your answer. You are welcome to ask further health related query. Thanks. Dr.Singh.

The back of the pill is blank. It does not have XXXXXXX 5620 on the back? However, I have had 3 others who seemed pretty confident it was Diazepam. I guess Canada has a few versions of the generic brand.
