Short-term treatment of insomnia. Benzodiazepines are only indicated when the disorder is severe, disabling or subjecting the individual to extreme distress. Sedation in premedication before surgical or diagnostic procedures



The actions of benzodiazepines such as midazolam are mediated by the inhibitory neurotransmitter gammaaminobutyric acid (GABA), which is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters of the central nervous system. Benzodiazepines increase the activity of GABA, thereby producing sedation, skeletal muscle relaxation, and sleep, anesthesia, and amnesia. Benzodiazepine binds to the benzodiazepine site on GABAA receptors, potentiating the effects of GABA by increasing the frequency of chloride channel openings. These receptors have been identified in various body tissues, including heart and skeletal muscle, although they appear to be mainly present in the central nervous system.
