Efficacy of two minor tranquilizers in relieveing symptoms of functional gastrointestinal distress



Efficacy of two minor tranquilizers in relieveing symptoms of functional gastrointestinal distress



Australian and New Zealand Journal of Medicine 5(6): 503-506



Two minor tranquilizers, diazepam and lorazepam were significantly better than a placebo preparation in relieving symptoms of functional gastrointestinal distress in 28 patients who took part in a double-blind cross-over trial. The beneficial therapeutic effect may be group- rather than preparation-specific. Both agents were also of significant benefit to the sub-group of patients with aerophagy as a major symptom.
