Alprazolam is short-lasting tranquilizer used in conditions of anxiety, panic disorders, and depressive syndrome. The most common synonym for this drug is xanax.

As already noted, there are drugs found among benzodiazepine derivatives that have expressed anxiolytic action and that lack or have poorly expressed sedative-hypnotic effects, which are called "daytime tranquilizers." Medazepam, a representative of the "daytime tranquilizers," is a drug that differs from diazepam only in the absence of a carbonyl group in the seven-membered azepine ring.

Medazepam: Medazepam, 7-chloro-2,3-dihydro-1-methyl-5-phenyl-1H-1,4-benzodi-azepine (5.1.40), has been suggested to be synthesized in various ways. The first is the reduction of the carbonyl group in diazepam (5.1.2) by lithium aluminum hydride [39,40].
