What Is Paradoxical Excitation?

Answer

Paradoxical excitation is a rebound phenomenon characterized by anxiety, aggressive or antisocial behavior, confusion, convulsions, and delirium. It is a withdrawal reaction that may occur hours or weeks after the abrupt discontinuation of benzodiazepines. On rare occasions, paradoxical excitation can occur in children or geriatric patients with the administration of benzodiazepines rather than producing the desired calming effect.
