Abstract:

A variety of physiological rea tions, representing certain of the major organ systems of the body, were studied to determine the effects of administration of Librium. Librium and its analog, when administrered daily for several days, tend to have very similar effects. The only major difference in physiological reactions to the two drugs is an elevation of heart rate for the analog as opposed to a decrease for Librium. Both drugs show a consistent trend to suppress responses to noise stress, a suppression which is partially compensated with the smaller but not the larger doses after several days of drug administration.
