Triazolam is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant tranquilizer of the triazolobenzodiazepine (TBZD) class, which are benzodiazepine derivatives possessing pharmacological properties similar to those of other benzodiazepines but is generally only used as a sedative to treat severe insomnia, as in addition to the hypnotic properties, triazolam’s amnesic, anxiolytic, sedative, anticonvulsant, and muscle relaxant properties are pronounced. Due to its short half-life, triazolam is not effective for patients who experience frequent awakenings or early wakening.
