Part Description

LP190318-8   LORazepam glucuronide
Lorazepam glucuronide is a major metabolite of lorazepam, a high-potency, intermediate-duration, 3-hydroxy benzodiazepine drug, often used to treat anxiety disorders. Lorazepam is rapidly conjugated at its 3-hydroxy group into lorazepam glucuronide which is then excreted in the urine. Lorazepam glucuronide has no demonstrable central nervous system (CNS) activity in animals. On discontinuation, lorazepam serum levels become negligible after three days and undetectable after about a week. Lorazepam-glucuronide is more water-soluble than its precursor, so gets more widely distributed in the body, leading to a longer half-life than lorazepam. Lorazepam-glucuronide is eventually excreted by the kidneys and, because of its tissue accumulation, remains detectable, particularly in the urine, for substantially longer than lorazepam.[Wikipedia: Lorazepam] Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
