Tryptophan in L-tryptophan may interact with DIAZEPAM in Diastat
Currently, tryptophan is not recommended for use as a dietary supplement. Both tryptophan and diazepam may promote drowsiness. If they are taken together, the risk of excessive sedation may increase. Additionally, if tryptophan is taken with drugs, such as diazepam, in the benzodiazepine class, symptoms that resemble Parkinson's disease may result. Parkinson's-like symptoms may include trembling, muscle stiffness, and the inability to move quickly. Tryptophan should not be taken - especially at the same time as diazepam is being taken. Individuals who use both may need to reduce or stop tryptophan if sedation increases to unsafe levels or Parkinson's-like symptoms develop. Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems.

This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity.
