Latest findings

During the period when Oxycontin was used, Ibuprofen controlled-release capsules, carbamazepine, Gabapentin, and Alprazolam were utilized as adjuvant medications based on symptoms and clinical reactions (Table 1). [source, 2016]
These drugs are Chlorpromazine, Diazepam, Alprazolam, Amitriptyline, Haloperidol, fluoxetine and vitamin B1 (Thiamine). [source, 2016]
All patients were premedicated with Alprazolam 0.5 mg orally 2 hours before surgery. [source, 2016]
Almost all had had tried (either by legal or illegal means) different BZDs with diverse pharmacokinetic properties and therefore relied on their own experiences and perceptions when making assertions, and they believed that a maintenance intervention with a slow-onset and long-acting BZD such as Xanax retard → (Alprazolam), or Rivotril → (CLONAZEPAM), provided them with more stability. [source, 2016]
Drugs were prescribed for the second admission was: Tablet Citalopram 20 mg Hs, tablet Alprazolam 0.5 mg TDS, tablet maprotiline 15 mg Hs, capsule Omeprazole daily, capsule Gabapentin 300 mg Hs. [source, 2016]
Mother used marijuana and Alprazolam during pregnancy. [source, 2016]
Alprazolam (triazolobenzodiazepine) is a short-acting substance that is used to treat anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. [source, 2016]
Alprazolam (Xanax®) is a member of the benzodiazepine family that has shown good effect on tinnitus [63, 68, 74]. [source, 2016]
Recently, Barter et al developed an ethnicity population database for the prediction of differences in cytochrome P450 (CYP)-mediated pharmacokinetics between Chinese and Caucasians using Alprazolam and Midazolam as probe drugs for the CYP3A metabolic pathway [source, 2016]
Unfortunately, the predicted oral clearance of Midazolam in Chinese was 2-fold higher than previously reported, while the prediction for Alprazolam was in good agreement with observed data. [source, 2016]
