Midazolam: a new drug for intravenous sedation.

Abstract

MIDAZOLAM IS SUPERIOR TO DIAZEPAM IN CERTAIN WAYS: it has a more rapid onset; produces greater anterograde amnesia, less postoperative drowsiness, less venous irritation and less likelihood of thrombophlebitis development. However, additional clinical trials may be necessary before it can replace the widely used diazepam.
