Flubromazolam is a novel synthetic depressant substance of the benzodiazepine class which produces anxiolytic, disinhibiting, sedative, muscle relaxant, and memory suppressing effects when administered. It is incredibly potent (active in the microgram range) with an unusually long 18 hour duration.
Flubromazolam has been noted for its potential use in the short-term treatment of anxiety, insomnia, acute seizures, and the sedation of hospitalized patients. Any comments regarding its pharmacology are purely speculation based upon the subjective effects it induces and its structural similarity to triazolam, pyrazolam and other benzodiazepines.
Flubromazolam is a chemical of the benzodiazepine class. Flubromazolam is named for the fluorine, bromine, and triazole substitutions on its core benzodiazepine skeleton (FLUorine-BROMine-AZOLe-AM). Flubromazolam is a member of the benzodiazepine class as it contains a 1,4 diazepine ring fused to a substituted benzene ring. Bromine is bound to this bicyclic structure at R7. Additionally, a fluorine substituted phenyl ring is bound to this structure at R5.
Flubromazolam also contains a methylated triazole ring fused to and incorporating R1 and R2 of its diazepine ring. Flubromazolam belongs to a class of benzodiazepines containing this fused triazole ring, called triazolobenzodiazepines, distinguished by the suffix “-zolam”.
