Brief Answer: No, it is rather noticed with withdrawal Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear of the various disease conditions that you have. I hope the medications have been helping you stay good. Anxiety is not a side effect of diazepam. Diazepam in itself is one of the drugs that can be used fro this. However, when it is stopped, it can lead to anxiety especially when discontinued abruptly. In all, anxiety is not a side effect of diazepam. Abrupt withdrawal can cause anxiety. I hope this addresses you query fully. Feel free to ask for clarifications and more information if need be. I wish you well. Dr. Ditah, MD.
