Just be careful, but rarely do people have side effects from Valium, and you shouldn't fret about it.
    Anxiolotics are depressants. The two terms don't conflict, they coincide. A depressant is a drug that slows down Central Nervous System activity, and anxioloitics do that. Think about it: is your heartbeat slower or faster when you're relaxed? Also, anti-depressants don't refer to CNS activity at all, and an anti-depressant taken with a depressant will not counteract one another.
