Clorazepate dipotassium (Tranxene), benzodiazepine of retarded anxiety-relieving, sedative and sleep-inducing action was used in an open sample of 36 patients for fast control of anxiety and aggression in the course of schizophrenia, schizoaffective psychosis and other psychotic disorders. The intensity of aggressive behaviors was assessed as 6-7 items on the CGI scale. After intramuscular injection of clorazepate complementing the so-called basic treatment in the mean daily dose of 150 mg, several hours lasting sedative effect was achieved.
