Flumazenil (Romazicon) is a benzodiazepine antagonist that specifically reverses the respiratory depression and hypnosis produced by the benzodiazepine receptor agonists. Its block of the amnesic effect of the agonists is less reliable. Flumazenil is particularly useful when an overdose of benzodiazepines has occurred. It is also employed when a benzodiazepine has been used to produce conscious sedation and rapid recovery of psy-chomotor competency is desirable. To avoid resedation, flumazenil may require administration by intravenous infusion.
