MEPROBAMATE

was one of the drugs introduced into the U.S. as an alternative, that was somewhat safer to the then incredibly popular barbiturates, during the 1950s and 1960s. It was also used as a daytime sedative and the treatment of general anxiety in some cases. There is a reduced risk of any respiratory reactions as a result of meprobamate use compared to barbiturates.

MEPROBAMATE: "Meorpbamate, otherwise as the midtown drug is a used as a sedative and in the treatment of anxiety cases."
