Benzodiazepines are often used in combination with other psychiatric drugs: Benzodiazepines and antidepressants – if you are prescribed antidepressants, some doctors may suggest that you also take a benzodiazepine at first. This is because benzodiazepines work quickly, while antidepressants may take a few weeks to have an effect.

In some cases, occasional as needed dosing of a short acting Benzodiazepine in a user of a long acting Benzodiazepine may be appropriate. Frequent as needed dosing should prompt re-evaluation with consideration of increasing the long-acting Benzodiazepine dose; Non-Benzodiazepine sedatives (e.g. Ambien) can have additive effects with. anxiety, the benzodiazepines were compared in one systematic review and eleven comparative efficacy trials. Overall, outcome measures were similar between each of the benzodiazepines evaluated in the treatment of anxiety disorders.

GABA needs to be present for benzodiazepine effects to be detectable (e.g. benzodiazepines are allosteric GABA-A receptor modulators, and not true agonists) Benzodiazepines increase the frequency of the chloride ion channel opening, thereby increasing the inhibitory effect of.
