CAS#: 23092-17-3

Description: Halazepam is a benzodiazepine derivative. Halazepam was used for the treatment of anxiety. It possesses anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, sedative and skeletal muscle relaxant properties. While its structure may be similar to chlordiazepoxide and diazepam, it has both less toxicity and less tendency to cause paradoxical hostility and aggression than either of them.
