Drug Mode of Action ::
Diazepam is a long-acting benzodiazepine w/ anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, sedative, muscle relaxant and amnestic properties. It increases neuronal membrane permeability to Cl ions by binding to stereospecific benzodiazepine receptors on the postsynaptic GABA neuron w/in the CNS and enhancing the GABA inhibitory effects resulting in hyperpolarisation and stabilisation.
Drug Interactions ::
May significantly enhance CNS depressant effect w/ antivirals (e.g. amprenavir, ritonavir). May enhance CNS depressant effect w/ anaesth, narcotic analgesics, antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiolytics, antiepileptics, antihistamines, antihypertensives, muscle relaxants (e.g. tizanidine, baclofen), nabilone. May decrease clearance w/ antibacterials that interfere w/ metabolism by hepatic enzymes (e.g. isoniazid and erythromycin), OC, cimetidine, omeprazole. May increase clearance w/ antibacterials which are known inducers of hepatic enzymes (e.g. rifampicin). May increase serum level w/ disulfiram. May reduce clearance of digoxin. May reduce therapeutic effect w/ theophylline. Reversible deterioration of parkinsonism w/ levodopa.
