Brief Answer:
It depends upon the indication for which you are being treated.

Detailed Answer:


I have gone through your query and understand your concern towards your medication interactions.

I can guide you better if l can know the indication for which you are taking those medications.

Usually, this interaction may result in confusion, dizziness, drowsiness and difficulty concentrating.

Especially elderly people may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination.

I would advise you need to avoid the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications.

Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery, as Librium causes drowsiness and sedation.

So, please let me know the problem clearly so that l can help you.

Hope this information would help you.
