Fludiazepam (marketed in Japan and Taiwan under the brand name Erispan)[1][2] is a drug which is a benzodiazepine derivative and is closely related to diazepam.[3] It exerts its pharmacological properties via enhancement of GABAergic inhibition.[4] Fludiazepam has 4 times more binding affinity for benzodiazepine receptors than diazepam.[5] It possesses anxiolytic,[6][7][8] anticonvulsant, sedative, hypnotic and skeletal muscle relaxant properties.[9]

Fludiazepam is has drug abuse potential.[10]
