Full text not available from this repository.


Benzodiazepine hypnotics and analogs promote the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA in the brain. The individual substances of this class differ mainly with respect to their elimination half-life. They are all effective hypnotics, but exhibit a number of undesired effects. Hypnotics should be administered generally for the short-term treatment of insomnia, and they should be prescribed for a prolonged time period only exceptionally.
