> Are benzodiazepines NMDA antagonists?

Hi G,

I don't believe benzos are. They bind to the GABA receptor (like barbiturates).

It's my understanding that drugs like Ketamine are NMDA antagonists, as well as some synthetic opioids, like Tramadol (which got me thinking, because my mood responds so positively to Tramadol).

I'm not sure about its interactions with Parnate, but Vistaril helps me when I need something to sleep (it's sedating and non-habit forming, and works ok on anxiety). It's basically an antihistamine.
