Benzodiazepines (BZs) have been used broadly in gastroenterology, for instance in treating anxiety symptomatology associated with gastrointestinal (GI) illness, or in treating some underlying conditions (e.g., addressing alcohol dependence in liver disease), or in various diagnostic endoscopy procedures, and in preparation for surgery. It is known that anxiety and GI symptomatology/disorders frequently co-exist, with anxiety exacerbating GI disorders, and some GI symptoms provoking anxiety.

Abstract

Benzodiazepines (BZs) have been used broadly in gastroenterology, for instance in treating anxiety symptomatology associated with gastrointestinal (GI) illness, or in treating some underlying conditions (e.g., addressing alcohol dependence in liver disease), or in various diagnostic endoscopy procedures, and in preparation for surgery. It is known that anxiety and GI symptomatology/disorders frequently co-exist, with anxiety exacerbating GI disorders, and some GI symptoms provoking anxiety.
