sedation, reduced mental alertness, apnea, cardiovascular collapse, hallucinations, tremors, seizure, dry mouth, flused skin, and fixed & dilated pupils (reverses when drug is withdrawn)
enhance/facilitate actions of the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA): reduction of anxiety and tension
reduce the worklad of the heart by blocking the sympathetic conductant at the beta receptors on the SA node and myocardial cells, thus decreasing the force of contraction and causing a reduction in heart rate.
calcium channel blockers
relaxes smooth muscle to provide vasolidation and affects cardiac muslce to reduce HR and SV
