Brief Answer:
You can take them together also.

Detailed Answer:
HI
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

Diazepam is a sedative-hypnotic drug and it helps to control anxiety. You can take it with nadolol without any major side effect or drug interaction, but remember this, it is a long acting sedative and you could remain drowsy due to diazepam for longer period. Better to take short acting sedative like alprazolam or clonazepam on sos basis. All benzodiazepine are relatively safe with antihypertensive and you can take any of them without worry. Please discuss all about this your doctor.

In case, you have any more query, you can ask.

Doc thanks for your answer. I will take diazepam 5mg at 5:30 am and nadolol at 10:00 am. The flight it is only 3 hours. The flight back it will be 7:30 pm and I will take the diazepan 5 mg probably at 6:00 but I need to take lisinopril at 3 or 4 pm. I'm afraid if I take the two medicines close I will not be ok. I take diazepam for flights for a long time and never feel dizzy or something but I don't know how it will react with this 2 new medicines I'm taking. Thanks Doc I thing I just scared about this new medicines.

Brief Answer:
There is no drug interaction between them

Detailed Answer:
Hi

All antihypertensive drugs show response for whole day and these drugs do not have any drug interaction with benzodiazepine like diazepam. If you do not feel any drowsiness with diazepam, then you can take diazepam with nadolol and lisinopril without any doubt. It would not give you any harm. Just relax.
