Sigma KEE - Benzodiazepine

appearance as argument number 1

(documentation Benzodiazepine EnglishLanguage "Benzodiazepines (BZD, BDZ, BZs), sometimes called 'benzos', are a class of psychoactive drugs whose core chemical structure is the fusion of a benzene ring and a diazepine ring. As depressants—drugs which lower brain activity—they are prescribed to treat conditions such as Anxiety, Insomnia, and Seizures. The first benzodiazepine, chlordiazepoxide (Librium), was discovered accidentally by Leo Sternbach in 1955 and was made available in 1960 by Hoffmann–La Roche, which soon followed with diazepam (Valium) in 1963. By 1977, benzodiazepines were the most prescribed medications globally; the introduction of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), among other factors, decreased rates of prescription, but they remain frequently used worldwide.[from Wikipedia]") Medicine.kif 3869-3881
