Disposition of clotiazepam: influence of age, sex, oral contraceptives, cimetidine, isoniazid and ethanol.


Factors influencing the disposition of clotiazepam in man were evaluated in a series of pharmacokinetic studies in healthy volunteers given a single 5 mg dose. Old age caused an increased volume of distribution of clotiazepam in women, and its clearance tended to be reduced in elderly men. Use of oral contraceptives, cimetidine, isoniazid or a single dose of ethanol had no significant effect on the kinetics of clotiazepam. Although clotiazepam is biotransformed by microsomal oxidation, its clearance appears to be relatively uninfluenced by factors known to alter the clearance of other oxidized benzodiazepines.
