CAS Code


Characteristics of the substance Oxazepam

Anxiolytic of benzodiazepine series.

White or white with a slightly yellowish tinge crystalline powder odorless. Virtually nerastvorim in water, slightly soluble in ethanol, chloroform, ether, soluble in dimethylformamide.


Pharmacological action - anxiolytic, hypnotic, sedative.

It interacts with specific benzodiazepine receptors located in the postsynaptic GABA-receptor complex in the limbic system of the brain, ascending activating reticular formation of the brainstem and intercalary neurons of the lateral horns of the spinal cord. Increases the sensitivity of GABA-receptors to the mediator (GABA). As a result, the frequency of opening in the cytoplasmic membrane of neurons of transmembrane channels for incoming currents of chloride ions increases. There is hyperpolarization of the membrane and inhibition of neuronal activity. Thus, the inhibitory effect of GABA in the central nervous system is enhanced.

It has a calming, anxiolytic and hypnotic effect on the central nervous system. Removes emotional tension, reduces anxiety, fear, anxiety, promotes the onset of sleep. It alleviates the symptoms of acute alcohol withdrawal. Has weak miorelaksiruyuschee (central) and anticonvulsant action.

Oxazepam is characterized by a large latitude of therapeutic effect (a big difference between the effective dose and the dose causing side effects).

In studies of tolerance and toxicity of oxazepam in different animal species (mice, rats, dogs), there was a significant difference in effective doses (anxiolytic effect) and doses causing side effects. Thus, in mice with oral administration of oxazepam, the effective doses were almost 10 times lower than the doses causing ataxia (rotabar test) and sedation (abolition of spontaneous motor activity).

In two-year studies in rats, when doses were administered 30 times higher than MPDH, an increase in the incidence of benign follicular cell tumors of the thyroid gland, testicular adenoma (interstitial cell), and adenoma of the prostate gland was found. In a nine-month study, a dose-related increase in the incidence of adenoma of the liver was detected in rats at doses 35-100 times higher than the daily dose for humans. At the same time, there is no evidence that the clinical use of oxazepam is associated with the onset of tumors.

After oral administration, it is slowly absorbed from the digestive tract. Cmax is reached after 1-4 hours. Binding to blood proteins - 97%. The equilibrium concentration in the blood is reached within a few days after the start of the intake. It is distributed on tissues. Passes through GEB, a placental barrier, penetrates into breast milk. Subjected to glucuronidation in the liver, there are no active metabolites. T1 / 2 averages 8.2 hours (5.7 - 10.9 hours). It is excreted mainly by kidneys in the form of glucuronides. When taking repeated doses, the accumulation is minimal.

Application of substance Oxazepam

Neuroses, psychopathies, neurotic and psychopathic conditions, accompanied by fear, anxiety, increased irritability, sleep disorders, etc .; Senesto-hypochondriacal disorders and obtrusiveness (especially with poor tolerance of other anxiolytics); vegetative disorders in women associated with menopause, premenstrual syndrome; Reactive depression (as part of combination therapy with antidepressants), withdrawal alcohol syndrome (as part of combination therapy).


Hypersensitivity, psychosis, pronounced myasthenia gravis, acute renal and / or hepatic insufficiency, pregnancy (especially I trimester), breast-feeding, age to 6 years.

Restrictions on the use

Propensity to abuse of psychotropic drugs.

Application in pregnancy and lactation

Contraindicated in pregnancy (especially in the first trimester). For the duration of treatment, breastfeeding should be stopped.

Side effects of Oxazepam

From the nervous system and sensory organs: drowsiness (usually in the first days of treatment), lethargy, dizziness, fatigue, headache, memory impairment, muscle weakness, ataxia, tremor, lubricated speech, paradoxical reactions in mentally ill people, including . Psychomotor agitation, anxiety.

Other: dry mouth, nausea, dyspeptic phenomena, leukopenia, impaired liver function (including jaundice), allergic reactions, fainting, changes in libido.

Possible addiction, drug dependence, withdrawal syndrome (see "Precautions").


Strengthens the effect of drugs that depress the central nervous system, incl. Hypnotics, antiepileptic drugs, neuroleptics, drugs for general anesthesia, alcohol.


Symptoms: oppression of the central nervous system of varying degrees (from drowsiness to coma) - drowsiness, confusion, lethargy; in more severe cases (especially when taking other drugs, depressing the central nervous system, or alcohol) - ataxia, lowering blood pressure, hypnotic state, coma.

Treatment: induction of vomiting, gastric lavage, symptomatic therapy, monitoring of vital functions. With severe hypotension - the administration of norepinephrine. Specific antidote - antagonist of benzodiazepine receptors flumazenil (introduction only in hospital). Hemodialysis is ineffective.

Routes of administration


Precautions for the substance Oxazepam

They are used with caution for predisposition to arterial hypotension, especially in elderly patients (due to the possibility of cardiac dysfunction), an increased risk of drug dependence.

It should not be prescribed with MAO inhibitors, phenothiazine derivatives. The likelihood of symptoms of overdose increases with the simultaneous administration of funds, depressing the central nervous system, or alcohol. During the treatment, alcoholic beverages are excluded.

Do not use for a long time (due to the risk of drug dependence). If long-term treatment is necessary (several months), the course should be carried out by the method of intermittent therapy, stopping for several days with the subsequent appointment of the same individually selected dose. Cancellation should be gradual. With the abrupt reversal of oxazepam, there may be a withdrawal syndrome (tremor, convulsions, abdominal or muscle spasms, vomiting, sweating), which most often occurs after taking high doses or long-term treatment.

With prolonged treatment, control of liver function and peripheral blood pattern is necessary.

Do not apply to drivers of vehicles and people whose profession is associated with increased concentration of attention.

Special instructions

It is recommended in the treatment of anxiety, stress, agitation, irritability in weakened patients, elderly people, as well as patients with residual traumatic or infectious lesions of the central nervous system.

It should be borne in mind that anxiety or stress associated with everyday stress usually do not require treatment with anxiolytics.
