No, diazepam is not a narcotic. It belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. It is used to treat anxiety disorders, seizures, muscle spasms and alcohol withdrawal.

It is considered a controlled substance though. Most people think of opioids as narcotics but some feel all controlled substances count as narcotics so I thought I would add that diazepam IS a controlled substance.
