Descriptions

LP15014-1   Benzodiazepines
The benzodiazepines are a class of drugs with sedative, hypnotic, anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, amnestic and muscle relaxant properties. They are often used for short-term relief of severe, disabling anxiety or insomnia. Long-term use may lead to tolerance and dependency. They are believed to act on the GABA receptor GABAA, the activation of which dampens higher neuronal activity. They began to be widely prescribed for stress-related ailments in the 1960s and 1970s. Their chemical structure is based upon diazepine and phenyl groups. Common benzodiazepines include diazepam, oxazepam, chlorodiazepam, alprozolam, and temazepam.
