The results showed that diazepam at dose 2.5-5 mg/kg body weight caused a significant decrease in hemoglobin estimation, packed cell volume, numbers of white blood cell and the percentage of lymphocyte and there was also a significant increase in the percentage of neutrophil compaired with control. Further more, there was no significant difference in the percentage of eosinophil, basophil, monocyte and average weight of heart, liver, lung, spleen and kidney.
