Flumazenil is a potent benzodiazepine receptor antagonist indicated for the complete or partial reversal of the sedative effects of benzodiazepines in cases where general anesthesia has been induced and/or maintained with benzodiazepines. Flumazenil, an imidazobenzodiazepine derivative, competitively inhibits the benzodiazepine binding site on the GABA/benzodiazepine receptor complex. It is a weak partial agonist in some animal models but has little to no agonist activity in man. Flumazenil as a result antagonizes sedation, impairment of motor recall, psychomotor impairment, and ventilatory depression produced by benzodiazepines, but does not antagonize the central nervous system effects of drugs affecting GABAergic neurons by means other than the benzodiazepine receptor and does not reverse the effects of opioids.
