Gidazepam is a drug which is an atypical benzodiazepine derivative, developed in the Soviet Union.[1][2] It is a selectively anxiolytic benzodiazepine.[3] It also has therapeutic value in the management of certain cardiovascular disorders.[4][5][6][7][8]

Gidazepam is a prodrug for its active metabolite 7-bromo-5-phenyl-1,2-di-hydro-3H-1,4- benzodiazepine-2-one (desalkylgidazepam).[9][10] It is used as an antianxiety. Its anxiolytic effects can take several hours to manifest after dosing however, as it is the active metabolite which primarily gives the anxiolytic effects.[11]
