Nordiazepam, also known as nordazepam and desmethyldiazepam, belongs to the benzodiazepine class. Nordiazepam contains sedative, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, and muscle relaxant properties and is an active metabolite of diazepam. It is primarily used in the treatment of anxiety.

Nordazepam is a long-acting benzodiazepine that has been used primarily for the treatment of anxiety. It modulates the effect of GABA that acts as a significant inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain by binding to a GABA receptor.

There are at least 17 death records in the ME/C database that mention Nordiazepam. The earliest was in 2015.
