In two studies including 73 patients the stress reducing effects of the tranquilizer Cloxazolam (Olcadil) and the beta-receptor-blocking drug pindolol (Visken) were investigated after the application of a single oral dose (3 mg Cloxazolam, 5 mg pindolol). The drugs were tested against placebo by the double blind method. After local anesthesia and during oral surgery an increase of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH)-activity, noradrenaline-, c-AMP-, ACTH and cortisol concentration was found in the… Expand

Effect of a benzodiazepine (alprazolam) on plasma epinephrine and norepinephrine levels during exercise stress.
TLDR
Alprazolam reduces the plasma catecholamine response to exercise stress, possibly by inhibiting centrally mediated sympathetic discharge, and may be beneficial in cardiac disorders in which increased sympathetic tone is potentially deleterious. Expand
