In 10 young, healthy male volunteers the stress-protective efficacy of bromazepam (orally 3 mg bid) was investigated double-blind (vs placebo) during steady state. Physical and mental stress was induced by ergometer (125 Watt for 5 minutes) and delayed auditory feedback, respectively. Stress response was measured biochemically (plasma concentrations of epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine), physiologically by monitoring heart rate and blood pressure and subjectively (by visual analogue…

Effect of Evening Bromazepam Administration on Blood Pressure and Heart Rate in Mild Hypertensive Patients
TLDR
In mild hypertensive patients, evening consumption of bromazepam for a 2-week period did not affect BP, while it increased nocturnal HR, which suggests that it depends on a bromzepam mediated decrease in vagal tone.
Situational stress and anxiety in man: Studies with drugs in laboratory and surgical settings
The development of new selective anxiolytic drugs has led to increased interest in the pharmacology of stress. Attempts to assess the effects of drugs on situational stress responses in man have

TLDR
Proper evaluation of these new compounds is going to require careful evaluation of their cognitive and behavioural effects, as well as their physiology, which should draw the contributions of clinical pharmacology and clinical psychology closer together rather than drive them further apart.

TLDR
Commentaries on the paucity of clinical data about combination therapies, the effect of economic forces upon the relationship between pharmacology and psychology and the direction of psychiatric research, and established areas of conflict between psychology and pharmacology such as placebo effects are shared.
