Drugs That May Cause DepressionThe following drugs have been rtopreed to cause depression in some patients. Elderly people are particularly at risk.Benzodiazepines   This group of central nervous system depressants is often used to treat anxiety and insomnia and to relax muscles. Examples include Ativan, Dalmane, Halcion, Klonopin, Librium, Valium, and Xanax.Valium is a form of  benzoiazepines and can cause depression.Effexor (Venlafaxine) does not interact significantly with many other medications, including lithium, diazepam (Valium), and cimetidine (Tagamet, an anti-ulcer medication). However, patients taking cimetidine who have high blood pressure or liver disease or are elderly should use caution in taking Effexor because the interaction can be more pronounced when these disorders are present.Effexor definitely should not be taken at the same time as the MAOIs (such as Parnate or Nardil). Interactions with these compounds could be lethal. Patients who have been taking an MAOI and are switching to Effexor must allow sufficient time (usually 14 days) for the MAOI to clear out of the body. The same time should be allowed if changing from Effexor to an MAOI. However, switching from Effexor to other medications is easy because Effexor is quickly removed from the bodyFoods that acidify the urine can lead to faster absorption and elimination of Valium, and thus decrease its levels and activity. Foods that alkalinize the urine can lead to slower absorption and elimination of diazepam, increasing drug levels and activity
