Benzodiazepine Names

Benzodiazepines are drugs known under many different brand and generic names. The chemical and brand names of a drug can also vary from one country to the next. This page lists all of the benzodiazepines and the so called non benzodiazepines aka "Z drugs". This page also contains the correct equivalence of each individual benzodiazepine when compared against diazepam which can be useful to know for someone who is undergoing benzodiazepine withdrawal.

You can use the below benzodiazepine list to locate information on half life, dose equivalence comparison to diazepam and brand name by country. Simply click on the generic name of the drug of interest to be linked down the page to the drug information for a particular benzodiazepine or Z drug.

The side effects of benzodiazepines (or benzos as they are sometimes referred to) and the Z drugs are generally very similar or even identical especially in terms of tolerance, dependence / addiction and withdrawal symptoms. The Z drugs are currently only marketed and available on prescription for the treatment of insomnia whereas the benzodiazepines are prescribed for numerous conditions. The main differences between the various drugs is their elimination half life and the dosage strength. For example 2 mg of alprazolam (xanax) or Clonazepam (Klonopin, Rivotril) is equivalent to 40 mg of diazepam making alprazolam and clonazepam the most strongest and most potent benzodiazepine available however it is only a matter of dose as the pharmacokinetics and mechanism of action of the drugs on the Central Nervous System is the same (binding to the benzodiazepine receptor and enhancing GABA function). The benzodiazepines and Z drugs have anti anxiety, anticonvulsant, sedative hypnotic, muscle relaxant, amnesic properties and in addition abuse and overdose potential especially in combination with alcohol or opiates. Increase hazards when driving or operating machinary and increased risks to the unborn child when they are taken during pregnancy.
