      Dalmane history and info

      Dalmane (Flurazepam) was initially patented in 1963 and went on the market in the United States in 1970.  Dalmane produces a metabolite with a very long half-life (40-250 hours) so it stays in the bloodstream for up to 4 days.  This makes Dalmane unsuitable as a treatment for insomnia due to the next-day sedation. Dalmane is only recommended for short-term use, less than 14 consecutive days. The product insert for Dalmane states that it becomes less effective with continued use and has a high potential for addiction. 

      Dalmane is a benzodiazepine that exerts its affect on gamma-aminobutryic acid (GABA), the most calming neurotransmitter of the human body. As the nervous system adapts to Dalmane the GABA receptors are down regulated and higher dosages of Dalmane are required to achieve the calming effects. Breakthrough anxiety, worsening sleep, sensitivity to noise and light and muscle weakness are all symptoms of dependence to Dalmane.

      The nervous system is comprised of individual nerve cells called neurons – the act as the body’s wiring.  Nerve signals are transmitted through electrical impulses and in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) GABA is essential to control over-excitation in the nervous system but it is also required for healthy functioning of the intestine, stomach, pancreas, Fallopian tube, uterus, ovary, testis, kidney, urinary bladder, lung, and liver. Without the proper functioning of GABA, nerve cells fire too often and too easily.  This explains why dependence to Dalmane affects systems throughout the entire brain and body. 

      Dalmane is not recommended during pregnancy or during breast feeding as Dalmane is excreted in breast milk.

      Like all benzodiazepines, Dalmane must be tapered slowly to minimize withdrawals. Rapid or abruptly discontinuing can be life threatening due to the risk of seizure and high blood pressure. 


      Withdrawal symptoms, similar in character to those noted with barbiturates and alcohol

      219  (convulsions, tremor, abdominal and muscle cramps, vomiting and sweating), have 220  occurred following abrupt discontinuance of benzodiazepines. The more severe 221  withdrawal symptoms have usually been limited to those patients who had received 222  excessive doses over an extended period of time. Generally milder withdrawal symptoms 223  (eg, dysphoria and insomnia) have been reported following abrupt discontinuance of 224  benzodiazepines taken continuously at therapeutic levels for several months. 225  Consequently, after extended therapy, abrupt discontinuation should generally be avoided 226  and a gradual dosage tapering schedule followed.
