Are benzos GABA agonist?, or are they synthetic GABA neurotransmitters?
Ex. Does xanax stimulate the brain to release more GABA or does it just bind to the the GABA A receptor sites and stimulate them that way?
The Benzo have receptor protien binding sides in the area where the GABA is normally release causing the sedative effect. I am not sure if this is right but I think this occurs in a pregaglionic synapes in the limbic system.
Now I believe that the benzos dont directly antagonize the same receptors as the neurotransmitter but works in increase the about of GABA the inhibits the appropriate neuron... its been along time since I was in school so I hope some one else can offer more
And always remember

Knowing is half the battle!
