Chlordiazepoxide is metabolized or broken down by a group of enzymes in the liver known as the cytochrome P450 3A4 enzymes. Drugs which inhibit these enzymes reduce the metabolism of chlordiazepoxide and have the potential for causing side effects.

Additionally, inducers of the CYP 3A4 enzymes may increase the activity of these enzymes and cause blood levels of chlordiazepoxide to decrease.
