BENZODIAZEPINE DERIVATIVES -> Agonise the GABAa receptors which result in sedative, hypnotic, anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, and muscle relaxant properties. They are useful in treating anxiety, insomnia, agitation, seizures, muscle spasms, alcohol withdrawal and as a premedication for medical or dental procedures. However due to these effects they are considered to be major drugs of abuse. If they are used intravenously and are non-water soluble (as the vast majority of benzos are); abscesses, cellulitis, thrombophlebitis, arterial puncture, deep vein thrombosis, and gangrene can occur. In general, benzodiazepines are safe (very high LD50The dosage of a substance at which 50% of the exposed subjects does not survive. To estimate the LD50 for humans, tests are conducted on non-human subjects.) but can be taken in overdoses and can cause dangerous deep unconsciousness. If mixed with other classes of sedatives, opioids or alcohol (the main cause of fatality when mixed with heavy alcohol use); the potential for toxicity and fatal overdose increases. Very effective in short term use, although cognitive impairments and paradoxical effects such as aggression or behavioral disinhibition can occur. A minority react reverse and contrary to what would normally be expected. Long-term use is controversial due to concerns about adverse psychological and physical effects, increased questioning of effectiveness, and, because benzodiazepines are prone to cause tolerance, physical dependence, and, upon cessation of use after long-term use, a withdrawal syndrome. The elderly are at an increased risk of suffering from both short- and long-term adverse effects,810 including an associated roughly 50% increase in the risk of dementia, especially with Triazolam which can cause death in the elderly.


COMMON


Alprazolam - Short acting anxiolytic. High affinty for AX BZD subunits

Clonazepam - Chlorinated derivative of nitrazepam. Up to 50 hour HL

Diazepam - The gold standard. Used in Alcohol withdrawals and benzodiazepine withdrawals.

Flurazepam - Very long half life (Up to 250 hours) which makes it practically useless as a hypnotic, but... hmm. Interesting.

Lorazepam - 3-OH benzo. Has mild affinity for all subunits.

Lormetazepam - ^^

Midazolam - Water soluble, Is now used other than Pentobarbital in Lethal Injection.

Nitrazepam - Typical benzo. Tolerance raises fast.

Oxazepam - Typical benzo. Moderate affinity for all. Slow onset.

Prazepam - Long half life (up to 224hrs) however fewer side effects than normal benzos.

Temazepam - 3-OH hypnotic. Approved in the US for short term treatment of insomnia. Typical benzo, but is fairly euphoric.



COMMON OVERSEAS


Bentazepam - Only Spain.

Cinolazepam - Pretty much just as a Hypnotic.

Clotiazepam - ThienodiazepineClose analogues of benzodiazepines., Stage 2 NREM sleep is significantly increased by this drug. Effective in short term management of anxiety. Used in France/Japan. 95+ BA orallyRoute of administration in which the subject swallows a substance.. 6-18 HL.

Cloxazolam - Metabolised into delorazepam. When tested alongside Diazepam, some reported an increase in heart rate.

Loprazolam - Imidazole deriv. Marketed for short term treatment of insomnia.

Medazepam - Must have someone smarter than me read this as I understand none of it. But yeah... *

Nordazepam - Active metabolite of Diazepam/Chlordiazepoxide/Clorazepate/Prazepam/Pinazepam/Medazepam. Up to 200 hour half life.

Tofisopam - anxiolytic but no anticonvulsant, sedative, skeletal muscle relaxant, motor skill-impairing or amnestic properties. PDE10A inhibitor, so could be useful in schizophrenia


SOUTH-EAST ASIAN


Etizolam - Unscheduled in Western countries, so has become an RC too.

Fludiazepam - Strong Diazepam analogue, 4x binding affinity of Diazepam.

Flutazolam - Japanese benzo

Flutoprazepam - Longer acting and more potent than diazepam. Japanese.

Haloxazolam - Marketed in Japan. Comparing Estazolam and Haloxazolam found that haloxazolam only affects gamma motor neurons, where the other effects both.

Mexazolam - Benzo derivative effective for only one week and losing effectiveness at 3 weeks

Nimetazepam - Sold under "Erimin" and is scripted short term for severe insomnia. 95%+ Oral BA. Hypnotic effects felt within 30 minutes. And hits peak plasma level within an hour, and the mean HL is 14-30 hours. N-Methyl analogue of Nitrazepam, to which it partially metabolises into. Which has a long half life, so, carefulness. (lol being careful)

Rilmazafone - Water soluble japanese benzo




Adinazolam - Triazolobenzodizepine (TBZD) Was apparently made to enhance the antidep effect of alprazolam. Odd drug. Metabolites are A-OH-alprazolam (Nomenclature blows) and estazolam.

Brotizolam - Extremely potent benzo active at 80-100ug.

Camazepam - Benzo with reduced side effects such as impaired cognition. Metabolites into Temazepam.

Clobazepam - selective ω2 agonistA substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with a receptor. on the GABAa receptor. Non-hypnotic. GABAGamma aminobutyric acid an amino acid that is found in the central nervous system; acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter.(B)

Flumazenil - GABAGamma aminobutyric acid an amino acid that is found in the central nervous system; acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter.(A) ANTAGONIST. I don't understand this at all. It's something.

Flunitrazepam - High potency, causes heavy amnesia (commonly referred to as a date-rape drug). Only prescribed in the worst of cases for insomnia and is only prescribed for short-term use.

Ketazolam - Similar effects to Diazepam. With less sedation.

Pinazepam - Fucking odd wiki page. Something something fetus... But, has a propargyl group for whatever reason. Appears to produce anxiolytic shit in animals. Main metabolites are nor-desmethyldiazepam and oxazepam.

Quazepam - Trifluoroethyl, Selectively targets GABAGamma aminobutyric acid an amino acid that is found in the central nervous system; acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter.(A) subtype A1 which is responsible for sleep. Subs completely in animals in Ambien/Lunesta.

Tetrazepam - Weak muscle relaxing anxiolytic

Triazolam - Short activity, heavy sedative, very euphoric. Was a common benzo in the US until it was found that use in the elderly was known to cause deaths, now it is rarely prescribed.

Zolazepam - Used with Tiletamine as a veterinary anaesthetic. Telazol is 1:1 ratio of the compounds. 4x potency of diazepam.




Flubromazepam - Slightly weaker than Diazepam, focuses mainly on anxiolytic effects.

Diclazepam - 2-choloro of Diazepam. Faster onset, less "hangover" the next day.

Estazolam - Superior to Triazolam

Fosazepam - water soluble analogue of diazepam however low potency. (.6:1)

Gidazepam - Soviet benzo.

Halazepam - Less potential to cause hostility and aggression than diazepam.

Meclonazepam - Showing up on the RC market. Just think legal Clonazepam, and that's probably what we have here. Also has anti-parasitic effects against the parasitic worm "Schistosoma Mansoni"

Menitrazepam - Similar in structure to tetrazepam and nimetazepam. 7-chloro group of tetrazepam replaced with nitro by the looks. Mainly hypnotic, but effects take longer to come up.

QH-II-66 - Highly selective GABAa5 agonistA substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with a receptor. which was created to replicate the effects of alcohol.

IMIDAZOBENZODIAZEPINES


Bretazenil - Highly potent, partial GABAa agonistA substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with a receptor. with less tolerance than normal. A possible base for a better social drug than alcohol.

FG-8205 - Related to Bretazenil, slight selectivity for a1, little sedation.

Imidazenil - Partial GABAa agonistA substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with a receptor., blocks sedative effects of other benzos, does not produce tolerance or addiction.

Iomazenil (123I) -

Remimazolam - Similar to Midazolam but faster acting and shorter lasting than <<. Water soluble.

PYRIDODIAZEPINES


Lopirazepam - Pyridodiazepine analogue of lorazepam. Assume same effects yet less potent, never marketed. Yet scheduled. Thanks america.

Zapizolam - Pyridodiazepine analogue of triazolam. Less in potency I'd assume.

Zomebazam - Anxiolytic properties, structurally related to Razobazam and Zometapine.


PYRROLODIAZEPINES


Premazepam - Partial GABAGamma aminobutyric acid an amino acid that is found in the central nervous system; acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter.(A) agonistA substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with a receptor.. More "derpy" than diazepam itself the first day, but more than one day apparently that switches? Hmm. Odd. 7.5mg ~= 5mg Diazepam. HL = 10-13 hours



TETRAHYDROISOQUINOBENZODIAZEPINES


Clazolam - Fused benzodiazepine and tetrahydroisoquinoline derivative. Anxiolytic and antidepressant properties.
