Oxazepam: update 1989.


PMID 2185302

Abstract

Oxazepam is an anxiolytic with established clinical efficacy. Compared to other benzodiazepines it may offer advantages in some patient populations, such as the elderly. Oxazepam has not been associated with more or different risks than other benzodiazepines, and there is no evidence that physiological dependence occurs more frequently with oxazepam than other benzodiazepines. Available evidence suggests that oxazepam may be associated with a lower risk of seizure-induction than lorazepam and alprazolam, and that compared to diazepam, oxazepam may have lower abuse potential.
