Name Meprobamate
CAS Type 1 Name 1,3-Propanediol, 2-methyl-2-propyl-, dicarbamate
Equivalent Terms Dapaz | Equanil | M├ęprobamate Richard | Meprospan | Miltown | Tranmep | Visano
CAS Registry Number 57-53-4
Definition A carbamate with hypnotic, sedative, and some muscle relaxant properties, although in therapeutic doses reduction of anxiety rather than a direct effect may be responsible for muscle relaxation. Meprobamate has been reported to have anticonvulsant actions against petit mal seizures, but not against grand mal seizures (which may be exacerbated). It is used in the treatment of ANXIETY DISORDERS, and also for the short-term management of INSOMNIA but has largely been superseded by the BENZODIAZEPINES.
