The most common drugs abused along with benzodiazepines are other benzodiazepines, prescription pain medications and alcohol. Alcohol and benzodiazepine have a synergistic depressant effect on the central nervous system. Combining alcohol with benzodiazepines can be dangerous practice even if it is engaged in only occasionally. In the present study, using molecular docking technique we followed the binding energy of benzodiazepines with benzodiazepine receptor and efficacy of the flumazenil antidote against benzodiazepine in the presence and absence of alcohol. We realized correlation study of molecular descriptors value of benzodiazepines with benzodiazepine-GABAA complex binding energy.
