Noninvasive indices of autonomic regulation after alprazolam and lorazepam: effects on sympathovagal balance.

Skin conductance level (SCL) and spectral analysis of variations in heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP), in relation to plasma catecholamine concentrations, were used to evaluate autonomic nervous system activity during situations of supine rest within a period of 4 h after oral administration of 1 mg alprazolam and 2 mg lorazepam. Twelve healthy men… CONTINUE READING
