ABSTRACT Flurazepam is a long acting drug with sedative, hypnotic, anxiolytic, relaxant, and anti-epileptic properties. The drug is a benzodiazepine and is commonly used by adults, including pregnant women, intentionally or sometimes unintentionally during their pregnancy. It is increasingly...

Selective actions of benzodiazepines at the transmembrane anaesthetic binding sites of the GABA.

British journal of pharmacology

McGrath M, Hoyt H, Pence A, Forman SA, Raines DE.

Br J Pharmacol. 2021 Dec;178(24):4842-4858. doi: 10.1111/bph.15662. Epub 2021 Sep 26.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In addition to binding to the classical high-affinity extracellular benzodiazepine binding site of the GABAEXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: With flumazenil blocking classical high-affinity extracellular benzodiazepine site effects, modulation of GABA-activated currents by diazepam, midazolam and flurazepam was measured...

Oxazepam and related benzodiazepine drugs are used in the treatment of anxiety. All benzodiazepines currently in use share a number of effects, including sedation, hypnosis, decreased anxiety, muscle relaxation, amnesia, and anticonvulsant activity. Oxazepam and four other benzodiazepines (chlordiazepoxide,...

Is there a problem with benzodiazepine prescribing in maritime Canada?.

Canadian family physician Medecin de famille canadien

PMID: 21274169
Can Fam Physician. 1985 Sep;31:1591-6.

The benzodiazepine prescribing habits of 64 maritime doctors were studied through collection and examination of carbon copies of all prescriptions over a 22 week period. Diazepam was the most frequently prescribed anxiolytic benzodiazepine, followed by chlordiazepoxide, then oxazepam. These...

A new method for the simultaneous determination of 1,4-benzodiazepines and amfepramone as adulterants in phytotherapeutic formulations by voltammetry.

The use of synthetic pharmaceuticals in phytotherapeutics can be defined as an illegal practice, since these compounds are normally present as non-declared compounds in the phytotherapeutical formulations. This work aims to show the development of an analytical method based...

Derivative spectrophotometric method for determination of acidity constants of single step acid-base equilibria.

Talanta. 2001 Aug 30;55(2):363-70.

A general derivative spectrophotometric method for determination of acidity constants is developed. The method appears suitable in cases when classical spectrophotometry cannot be employed due to little differences in the absorption spectra of conjugated acid-base pairs. Based on theoretical...

Deconvolution of ultraviolet absorption spectra of aqueous Diazepam, Flurazepam and Prazepam in acid and alkaline solutions.

OBJECTIVE: Benzodiazepines are frequently screened drugs in emergency toxicology, drugs of abuse testing, and in forensic cases. As the variations of benzodiazepines concentrations in biological samples during bleeding, postmortem changes, and redistribution could be biasing forensic medicine examinations, hence...

Past year use or misuse of an opioid is associated with use of a sedative-hypnotic medication: a NSDUH study.

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Prescription use and misuse of opioids are linked to greater sleep disturbance. However, there are limited data on the prevalence of sedative-hypnotic medication use among persons who use opioids. Therefore, this study examined whether past year sedative-hypnotic...

Pharmacodynamic profile of Zaleplon, a new non-benzodiazepine hypnotic agent.

Human psychopharmacology

Patat A, Paty I, Hindmarch I.
PMID: 12404558
Hum Psychopharmacol. 2001 Jul;16(5):369-392. doi: 10.1002/hup.310.

The challenge in developing hypnotic agents for the treatment of insomnia is to balance the sedative effect needed at bedtime with the residual sedation on awakening. Zaleplon is a novel pyrazolopyrimidine hypnotic agent that acts as a selective agonist...

Differential pulse polarography of some benzodiazepines and their determination in urine.


Ellaithy MM, Volke J, Manousek O.
PMID: 18962046
Talanta. 1977 Feb;24(2):137-40. doi: 10.1016/0039-9140(77)80168-9.

A differential pulse polarographic method has been applied to the determination of diazepam, oxazepam, nitrazepam and flurazepam down to 2 x 10(-7)M (0.14 mug/ml). The method can also be used with biological materials such as urine, without prior extraction....
