Pharmacodynamics

Flurazepam, a benzodiazepine derivative, is a hypnotic agent which does not appear to decrease dream time as measured by rapid eye movements (REM). Furthermore, it decreases sleep latency and number of awakenings for a consequent increase in total sleep time.

Mechanism of action

Flurazepam binds to an allosteric site on GABA-A receptors. Binding potentiates the action of GABA on GABA-A receptors by opening the chloride channel within the receptor, causing chloride influx and hyperpolarization.

Absorption

Flurazepam hydrochloride is rapidly (30 minutes) absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract

Volume of distribution
Not Available
Protein binding

83%

Metabolism

Flurazepam is rapidly metabolized and is excreted primarily in the urine. Both hydroxyethyl flurazepam (the major metabolite) and N-desalkyl flurazepam are active. The N-desalkyl metabolite is slowly excreted in the urine as the conjugated form

Hover over products below to view reaction partners

Route of elimination

Flurazepam is rapidly metabolized and is excreted primarily in the urine. Less than 1% of the dose is excreted in the urine as N1-desalkyl-flurazepam.

Half-life

The mean apparent half-life of flurazepam is 2.3 hours. The half life of elimination of N1-des-alkyl- flurazepam ranged from 47 to 100 hours

Drug Interactions
This information should not be interpreted without the help of a healthcare provider. If you believe you are experiencing an interaction, contact a healthcare provider immediately. The absence of an interaction does not necessarily mean no interactions exist.
DrugInteraction
AbacavirFlurazepam may decrease the excretion rate of Abacavir which could result in a higher serum level.
AbametapirThe serum concentration of Flurazepam can be increased when it is combined with Abametapir.
AbataceptThe metabolism of Flurazepam can be increased when combined with Abatacept.
AcarboseAcarbose may decrease the excretion rate of Flurazepam which could result in a higher serum level.
AceclofenacAceclofenac may decrease the excretion rate of Flurazepam which could result in a higher serum level.
AcemetacinAcemetacin may decrease the excretion rate of Flurazepam which could result in a higher serum level.
AcetaminophenFlurazepam may increase the hepatotoxic activities of Acetaminophen.
AcetazolamideThe risk or severity of adverse effects can be increased when Flurazepam is combined with Acetazolamide.
AcetophenazineThe risk or severity of adverse effects can be increased when Flurazepam is combined with Acetophenazine.
Acetylsalicylic acidAcetylsalicylic acid may decrease the excretion rate of Flurazepam which could result in a higher serum level.

The GABA(A) receptor is pentameric (i.e. comprising 5 subunit proteins) and therefore has a multitude of potential isoforms. The above target is a collection of all possible GABA(A) subunits that may participate in the formation of the pentameric receptor and is not meant to imply direct a drug-protein interaction for each individual subunit.

Benzodiazepines modulate GABA(A) function by binding at the interface between alpha (α) and gamma (γ) subunits. Of the 6 α-subunits, only 4 (α-1, -2, -3, and -5) participate in the formation of this binding site. The above target is a collection of all α- and γ-subunits that are known to participate in the formation of the benzodiazepine binding site.
