CGS-20625 is an anxiolytic drug used in scientific research. It has similar effects to, and binds to the same target as benzodiazepine drugs, but is structurally distinct and so is classed as a nonbenzodiazepine anxiolytic.
CGS-20625 produces anxiolytic and anticonvulsant effects, but with no sedative effects even at high doses, and no significant muscle relaxant effects. It is orally active in humans, but with relatively low bioavailability.
