Characteristics of the substance Midazolam

The hypnotic from the group of benzodiazepine derivatives.

Midazolam - a white or slightly yellowish crystalline substance, insoluble in water. Midazolam hydrochloride is soluble in water.


Pharmacological action - hypnotic, sedative.

Interacts with specific benzodiazepine receptors located in the postsynaptic GABA-receptor complex, increases the sensitivity of GABA receptors to the mediator (GABA). This increases the frequency of opening ion channels for incoming currents of chloride ions, hyperpolarization of the membrane occurs and neuronal activity is inhibited. Prevents re-uptake of GABA, contributing to its accumulation in the synaptic cleft. There is evidence that excessive accumulation of GABA in neuronal synapses causes induction of general anesthesia.

When ingested quickly and completely absorbed from the digestive tract, has the effect of "first passage" through the liver (30-60% of midazolam is metabolized). Cmax in the blood is reached within 1 hour (eating increases the time to reach Cmax). With the / m introduction, the absorption is fast and complete, Cmax is achieved within 30 -45 minutes, bioavailability is more than 90%. In blood, 95-98% binds to proteins, mainly albumin. Quickly distributed in the body. The volume of distribution is 1-3,1 l / kg. Passes through the histogematic barriers, incl. GEB, placental, penetrates into breast milk in small amounts. In the cerebrospinal fluid penetrates slowly and in small amounts. It is subjected to biotransformation in the liver by hydroxylation with the participation of the cytochrome P450 3A4 isoenzyme. The main metabolites, 1-hydroxymidazolam, also called alpha-hydroxyimidazoles (about 60%), and 4-hydroxy-midazolam (5% or less) have pharmacological activity, but lower than the parent compound. Excreted by the kidneys in the form of glucuronic conjugates (less than 1% unchanged). T1 / 2 - 1.5-3 hours. T1 / 2 may increase in patients over 60 years of age, in patients with congestive heart or liver failure, in obese patients (due to increased distribution of midazolam in adipose tissue), in newborns.

Midazolam is characterized by a rapid onset and a short duration of the hypnotic effect. Shortens the phase of falling asleep and increases the overall duration and quality of sleep, without changing the phase of paradoxical sleep. Quickly causes the onset of sleep (after 20 minutes), practically does not have the effect of aftereffect.

Has sedative, central muscle relaxant, anxiolytic, anticonvulsant and amnestic effects.

Sedation in adults with IM introduction develops after 15 minutes, with IV the introduction after 1.5-5 minutes. The time to achieve maximum sedation with IM injection of 30-60 minutes. When IV introduction for introductory anesthesia, the effect is manifested after 1.5-3 minutes, and against a background of drug premedication after 0.75-1.5 minutes. Time of withdrawal from anesthesia - 2 hours (up to 6 hours).

The amnestic effect is mainly observed with parenteral administration. Amnesia (including endoscopic procedures) was observed with IM introduction in 40% of adult patients after 60 minutes, in 73% after 30 minutes. With IV introduction, a similar effect was observed in about 80% of patients. In some cases, there were episodes of amnesia after ingestion of midazolam.

In parenteral administration, the onset of action depends on the dose, the route of administration, and the joint use of narcotic analgesics and anesthetics.

The study of carcinogenicity was conducted in biennial studies in mice that received midazolam with food at doses of 1, 9 and 80 mg / kg / day. With prolonged admission in a dose of 80 mg / kg / day in female mice, there was a significant increase in the incidence of liver tumors. In males at the highest doses, a small but statistically significant increase in the incidence of benign thyroid tumors was observed, whereas at a dose of 9 mg / kg / day (25 times higher than the 0.35 mg / kg / day dose for humans), the incidence of tumors not found. The significance of this effect is unclear, given the short-term effect of midazolam on the human body.

Mutagenic activity (using a number of tests) was not detected.

In the study of reproduction in rats with the introduction of midazolam in doses up to 10 times higher than the dose for intravenous administration in humans - 0.35 mg / kg, the effects on fertility in males and female rats were not revealed. Administration of midazolam in the same doses in rats did not lead to adverse effects during pregnancy and during breastfeeding.

In the study of teratogenicity in rabbits and rats at doses 5-10 times higher than the dose for humans - 0.35 mg / kg, there was no teratogenic effect.

The formation of physical dependence (from mild to moderate severity) in monkeys after taking midazolam for 5-10 weeks is shown.

Application of substance Midazolam

Insomnia (violation of falling asleep and / or early awakening) - inwards premedication prior to diagnostic or surgical procedures (inwards IM), prolonged sedation in intensive care (w / m), induction of anesthesia with an inhalation anesthetic or sedative in combination narcosis ( IV), ataralgesia in children (IM in combination with ketamine).


Hypersensitivity, sleep disorders in psychoses and severe depression, myasthenia gravis, pregnancy (I trimester), childbirth, breast-feeding, children's age (for oral use).

Restrictions on the use

Organic brain damage, cardiac and / or respiratory and / or hepatic insufficiency, sleep apnea, pregnancy (II and III trimester), children's age (for induction anesthesia).

Application in pregnancy and lactation

Contraindicated in the first trimester of pregnancy and during childbirth. In the second and third trimester it is possible if the expected effect of therapy exceeds the potential risk to the fetus.

The action category for the fetus by FDA is D.

For the duration of treatment, breastfeeding should be discontinued.

Side effects of the substance Midazolam

Inside, parenterally.

From the nervous system and sensory organs: drowsiness, lassitude, muscular weakness, blunting emotions, reduced responsiveness, headache, dizziness, ataxia, diplopia, anterograde amnesia (dose-related), paradoxical reactions (agitation, agitation, aggressiveness, etc.). .

Other: dyspeptic phenomena, skin reactions, local reactions (erythema and pain at the injection site, thrombophlebitis, thrombosis).

Possible development of tolerance, drug dependence, withdrawal syndrome, the phenomenon of "recoil" (see "Precautions").

For parenteral administration: a decrease in tidal volume and / or respiratory rate (23.3% of patients after IV and 10.8% after the IM), the temporary cessation of breathing (in 15.4% of patients after IV administration) and / or the heart, sometimes leading to fatal - effects are dose-dependent and observed mainly in elderly patients with chronic diseases, while the use of narcotic analgesics, and also with the rapid on IV the introduction; laryngospasm, dyspnea; excessive sedation, convulsions (in premature and newborn children), withdrawal syndrome (with sudden withdrawal of long-term IV use); vasodilation, lowering of blood pressure, tachycardia; nausea, vomiting, hiccough, constipation; allergic, incl. skin (rash, hives, itching) and anaphylactoid reactions.


Potentiates the effects of tranquilizers, antidepressants, other hypnotics, analgesics, anesthetics, neuroleptics, narcotic drugs, alcohol (mutually). A solution of midazolam is incompatible in one syringe with alkaline solutions. In / in the administration of midazolam reduces the minimum alveolar concentrations of halothane required for general anesthesia. In / m administration of midazolam during premedication may necessitate a reduction in the dose of thiopental sodium by 15%.

Itraconazole, fluconazole, erythromycin, saquinavir increased T1 / 2 of midazolam administered parenterally (for assigning large doses of midazolam or conduct lengthy induction necessary to decrease the dose). Systemic action of midazolam amplify inhibitors isoenzyme CYP3A4: ketoconazole, itraconazole and fluconazole (co-administration is not recommended), erythromycin, saquinavir, diltiazem and verapamil (simultaneous assignment requires reducing midazolam dose by 50% or more), roxithromycin, azithromycin, cimetidine and ranitidine (clinically meaningful interaction is unlikely). Inductors of the isoenzyme CYP3A4 (carbamazepine, phenytoin, rifampicin) reduce the systemic effect of midazolam (ingestion) and necessitate an increase in its doses.


Symptoms: muscle weakness, lethargy, confusion, paradoxical reactions, amnesia, deep sleep; at very high doses - depression of respiration and cardiac activity, apnea, areflexia, coma.

Treatment: induction of vomiting and the appointment of activated charcoal (if the patient is conscious), gastric lavage through the probe (if the patient is unconscious), mechanical ventilation, maintaining the functions of the cardiovascular system. Introduction of a specific antidote antagonist of benzodiazepine flumazenil receptors (in hospital settings).

Routes of administration

Inside, IM, IV, rectally.

Precautions for the substance Midazolam

IV the introduction should be carried out only in medical institutions in the presence of resuscitative equipment, as well as trained personnel for its use (due to the possibility of suppressing the contractile function of the myocardium and stopping breathing).

After parenteral administration, patients should be under observation for at least 3 hours. It should be borne in mind that too fast IV administration (especially in children with unstable cardiovascular and neonatal conditions) can cause apnea, hypotension, bradycardia, cardiac arrest or breathing.

The development of paradoxical reactions is most often observed in children and elderly and senile patients.

Care should be taken when driving vehicles, as well as in performing work that requires increased concentration and precise coordination of movements, within a day after the application of midazolam.

Do not take alcoholic beverages, or use other drugs that cause CNS depression, within 24 hours after taking midazolam.

With repeated use within a few weeks, the occurrence of addiction may occur (the hypnotic effect may be somewhat weakened), as well as drug dependence, incl. when taking therapeutic doses. With a sharp cessation of treatment, there may be a withdrawal syndrome (headache and muscle pain, anxiety, stress, in severe cases - depersonalization, hallucinations, etc.), and the development of the phenomenon of "recoil" - a temporary increase in the initial symptoms (insomnia).
