Camazepam (marketed under the brand names Albego, Limpidon, and Paxor) is the dimethyl carbamate ester of temazepam, a metabolite of diazepam. It possesses anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, sedative and skeletal muscle relaxant properties. Compared to temazepam, camazepam has shown roughly equal anxiolytic properties, and less anticonvulsant, sedative and motor-impairing properties.
