Pharmacotherapy of sleep disorders using benzodiazepine hypnotics and their analogs


Borbely, A A (1995). Pharmacotherapy of sleep disorders using benzodiazepine hypnotics and their analogs. Praxis, 84(24):722-725.

Abstract

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.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
