“Dalmane is the brand name of flurazapam, a sedative, according to my pill book.”
“He existed on a regimen of antidepressants—Elavils—and a tranquilizer called Dalmane, an offshoot of Valium.”
“He prescribed at times the dose of Dalmane which is a sleeping pill.”
“Z drugs - Ambien was the first to reach the U.S. market, in 1992 - are less likely to cause dependency and side effects than the older generation of benzodiazepines such as Ativan and Dalmane.”
“Librium, Dalmane, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, and others were released as each drug company tried to match the phenomenal success of Valium, the most-prescribed drug in America by the late 1960s—a position it held for more than a decade.”
“In a 1987 report, Wysowski and Barash noted that during its first three years on the U.S. market, Halcion had racked up 8 to 30 times as many adverse-reaction reports as Dalmane and Restoril combined, even though it was still less widely used than either of them.”
“The question raised by the Grundberg case -- one that sleep specialists have debated bitterly for more than a decade -- is whether the drug is more dangerous than other drugs in the benzodiazepine family, a group that includes Valium and Xanax and such popular sleep aides as Dalmane and Restoril.”
“For the next few years FDA staffers Diane Wysowski and David Barash compared Halcion's adverse-reaction reports with the reports for two other benzodiazepines, Dalmane and Restoril.”
“The other group contains solely prescriptive sleeping medications that can be addictive—such as barbiturates (phenobarbital, Seconal), benzodiazepines (Dalmane, Valium, Klonopin), and narcotics (codeine, hydrocodone)—or can produce dependency such as Ambien, Sonata, and Lunesta.”
“In addition, another doctor in town sent a FedEx package of Demerol, Dalmane, and some other medications to the Bahamas with her name on it, as they put it, the consignee.”
