Abstract

The authors report the results of a large-scale double-blind study comparing the anxiolytic effects of alprazolam, a triazolobenzodiazepine; diazepam, a 1,4-benzodiazepine; and placebo in 151 anxious outpatients. Alprazolam and diazepam produced similar clinical improvement, which was significantly larger than improvement produced by placebo and was clearly evident after only 1 week of treatment. The incidence of sedation was lower with alprazolam than with diazepam.
