Abstract

The monograph by Malcolm Lader¹ recently published in this journal is certainly a comprehensive and authoritative work of reference on the subject of benzodiazepines (BZDs).

We wholeheartedly agree with this, but also wish to offer the following reflections in response to the author’s invitation to open a debate
benzodiazepine; flumazenil; dexification
