Pharmacological Properties of PhenazepamPharmachologic effect

Mode of action - an anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, muscle relaxant, hypnotic, sedative.


Anxiolytic (tranquilizer) benzodiazepine. It has anxiolytic, sedative-hypnotic, anticonvulsant and central muscle relaxant effect.

It increases the inhibitory effect of GABA in the transmission of nerve impulses. It stimulates benzodiazepine receptors located in the allosteric center of postsynaptic GABA receptors ascending activating reticular formation of the brain stem; reduces the excitability of the subcortical structures of the brain (the limbic system, thalamus, hypothalamus), polisinapticheskie inhibits spinal reflexes.

The anxiolytic effect is due to the influence on the amygdala of the limbic system and manifests itself in the reduction of emotional stress, easing anxiety, fear, anxiety.

Sedation due to the influence on the reticular formation of the brain stem and the nonspecific thalamic nuclei and manifested a decrease in symptoms of neurotic origin.

On the productive psychotic symptoms genesis (acute delusional, hallucinatory, affective disorders) has practically no effect, it is rarely observed decrease in affective intensity, delusional disorders.

Hypnotic effects associated with inhibition of the cells of the reticular formation of the brain. Reduces emotional effects, autonomic and motor stimuli that disturb sleep.

Anticonvulsant action is realized by increasing presynaptic inhibition suppresses the spread of seizure pulse, but does not eliminate the excited state of the hearth.

Central muscle relaxant effect is due to inhibition of polysynaptic spinal afferent inhibitory ways (to a lesser extent - and monosynaptic). Perhaps, and direct inhibition of motor nerve and muscle function.


After oral administration, is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, Tmax plasma -. 1-2 hours is metabolized in the liver. T1 / 2 - 6.10.18 hours.
Extract mainly by kidneys as metabolites.

Precautions: hepatic and / or renal failure, cerebral and spinal ataxia, drug dependency history; the propensity to abuse drugs; organic brain disease, psychosis (possible paradoxical reactions), hypoproteinemia, sleep apnea (or suspected) patients of advanced age.

Phenazepam Dosage and Administration


When sleep disorders - 0.5 mg for 20-30 minutes before bedtime.

For the treatment of neurotic, psychopathic, neurosis and psychopathy-like states initial dose - 0.5-1 mg 2-3 times a day. After 2-4 days in view of efficacy and tolerability, the dose can be increased to 6.4 mg / day.

In severe agitation, fear, anxiety, treatment is initiated with a dose of 3 mg / day, quickly increasing the dose to produce a therapeutic effect.

In the treatment of epilepsy - 2.10 mg / day.

For the treatment of alcohol withdrawal - 2-5 mg / day.

The average daily dose - 1.5-5 mg, it is separated into 2-3 doses, usually 0.5-1 mg in the morning and afternoon, and 2.5 mg at night. In neurological practice for diseases with muscle hypertonicity appoint 2-3 mg 1-2 times a day.

The maximum daily dose - 10 mg.

In order to avoid the development of drug dependence at course treatment duration fenazepama application is 2 weeks (in some cases the duration of treatment can be increased up to 2 months). If you cancel Phenazepam reduce the dose gradually.

Side effect of Phenazepam

From the central and peripheral nervous system: at the beginning of treatment (particularly in elderly patients) - drowsiness, fatigue, dizziness, decreased ability to concentrate, ataxia, disorientation, unsteady gait, slowing of mental and motor reactions, confusion; rarely - headache, euphoria, depression, tremors, loss of memory, impaired motor coordination (particularly at high doses), depressed mood, dystonic extrapyramidal reactions (uncontrolled movements, including the eyes), fatigue, muscle weakness, dysarthria, epileptic seizures (epilepsy patients); very rarely - paradoxical reaction (aggressive outbursts, agitation, anxiety, suicidal tendencies, muscle spasms, hallucinations, agitation, irritability, anxiety, insomnia).

From the side of hematopoiesis: leukopenia, neutropenia, agranulocytosis (chills, pyrexia, sore throat, extreme tiredness or weakness), anemia, thrombocytopenia.

From the digestive system: dry mouth or salivation, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation or diarrhea; abnormal liver function, increased activity of hepatic transaminases and alkaline phosphatase, jaundice.

From the urogenital system: urinary incontinence, urinary retention, renal dysfunction, decreased or increased libido, dysmenorrhea.

Allergic reactions: skin rash, pruritus.

Other: addiction, drug dependency, lowering blood pressure; rarely - blurred vision (diplopia), weight loss, tachycardia.

With a sharp decrease in dose or discontinuation - withdrawal symptoms (irritability, nervousness, sleep disturbances, dysphoria, a spasm of smooth muscles of internal organs and skeletal muscles, depersonalization, increased sweating, depression, nausea, vomiting, tremor, perception disorders, including hyperacusis, paresthesia, photophobia, tachycardia, seizures, rare - acute psychosis).

Pregnancy and breast-feeding
In pregnancy, the use is possible only for health reasons. It has a toxic effect on the fetus and increases the incidence of birth defects when used in the I trimester of pregnancy. Reception at therapeutic doses in later stages of pregnancy can cause CNS depression in the neonate. The constant use during pregnancy may lead to physical dependence with the development of withdrawal symptoms in the newborn. Children (especially at a younger age) are very sensitive to the depressant action of benzodiazepines.

Application just before birth or during labor may cause neonatal respiratory depression, decreased muscle tone, hypotension, hypothermia and a weak act of sucking (flaccid baby syndrome).

Overdose of Phenazepam 

Symptoms: marked depression of consciousness, cardiac and respiratory activity, severe drowsiness, prolonged confusion, decreased reflexes, prolonged dysarthria, nystagmus, tremor, bradycardia, dyspnea or shortness of breath, decreased blood pressure, coma.

Treatment: gastric lavage, the appointment of activated carbon, the control of vital functions, maintaining respiratory and cardiovascular activity, symptomatic therapy. Hemodialysis is ineffective.

Specific antagonist - flumazenil (in a hospital) / in 0.2 mg if necessary - up to 1 mg of 5% glucose solution or 0.9% sodium chloride solution.


In an application Phenazepam reduces the effectiveness of levodopa in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Phenazepam may increase the toxicity of zidovudine.

There mutual enhancement effect, while the use of antipsychotic, antiepileptic, or hypnotic drugs, as well as central muscle relaxants, narcotic analgesics, ethanol.

Inhibitors of microsomal oxidation increase the risk of toxic effects. Inductors microsomal liver enzymes decrease the efficiency.

Increasing the concentration of imipramine in blood serum.

In an application with antihypertensive drugs may increase antihypertensive action.

Against the background of the simultaneous appointment of clozapine may increase the respiratory depression.


In renal and / or hepatic failure and long-term treatment is necessary to control the picture of peripheral blood and liver enzymes.

In patients not previously treated with psychoactive drugs, therapeutic response is observed in the application of Fenazepama® at lower doses, compared with patients taking antidepressants, anxiolytics or suffering from alcoholism.

Like other benzodiazepines, it has the ability to cause drug dependency chronic administration in large doses (up to 4 mg / day). In a sudden discontinuation may experience withdrawal symptoms (including depression, irritability, insomnia, increased sweating), especially after long-term use (8-12 weeks). If you have patients with such unusual reactions, as increased aggressiveness, acute state of excitement, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, hallucinations, increased muscle cramps, difficulty falling asleep, sleep surface, treatment should be discontinued.

In the treatment of patients is strictly prohibited the use of ethanol.

The efficacy and safety of the drug in patients younger than 18 years have not been established.

Effects on ability to drive vehicles and management mechanisms. During the period of treatment must be careful when driving and occupation of other potentially hazardous activities that require high concentration and psychomotor speed reactions.
