Diazepam: A Literature Review of the Primitive Benzodiazepine
Diazepam is a benzodiazepine, a class of drugs that has anxiolytic, sedative, antispasmodic, and anticonvulsant properties. Benzodiazepines superseded the class of drugs called the barbiturates, as well as the carbamates, since their safety is greater and therapeutic range is wider. While there are side effects to the benzodiazepines, the risks are often weighed against their clinical efficacy in treatment and management of indicated disorders.
