Two experiments were undertaken to provide information about possible differences in the abuse liability of diazepam and oxazepam. The experiments were conducted in a residential hospital research ward setting with male human volunteers with histories of sedative drug abuse. This study suggests that diazepam may have a higher abuse liability than oxazepam.
