The relativistic symmetries of the Dirac equation were investigated with an energy-dependent tensor potential interaction for two different energy-dependent potentials under parametric Nikiforov-Uvarov method and supersymmetric quantum mechanics and shape-invariance method. It is observed that the energy-dependent tensor interaction has stronger removal effect of the energy degeneracies in both the spin and pseudospin symmetries than the non-energy-dependent tensor interaction.
