The effect of a single dosage of 20 mg dipotassium clorazepate (DPC) on reaction times, with and without administration of ethanol (1 g/kg body weight), was studied in 14 male subjects. When administered in the evening, the sort-term effect of DPC consisted of slightly increased optic reaction times and decreased endurance and concentration. With simultaneous administration of ethanol, all types of performance studied were significantly impaired; impairment was more pronounced than with the… 
Short-term ethanol administration impairs the elimination of chlordiazepoxide (Librium®) in man
TLDR
It is demonstrated that short-term ethanol ingestion in moderate doses impairs the elimination of chlordiazepoxide and accounts, at least partly, for the greater sedation that results when ethanol is taken concomitantly.
Mnestische Störungen nach experimenteller Alkohol-Tranquilizer-Belastung
TLDR
The forensic medical interpretation of mnemic disturbances occurred in 8 of 14 subjects during a pharmacopsychological investigation of possible interactions between alcohol and dipotassium chlorazepate (Tranxilium).
Psychiatric Disturbances of Attention
TLDR
Evidence from the field of behavioral medicine that implicates attention as contributing to particular health risk factors, including pain, obesity, physical activity, and substance dependence, particularly smoking and heavy alcohol and drug use is discussed.
