An anxiolytic is a medication, or other intervention, that inhibits anxiety. This effect is in contrast to anxiogenic agents. Together these categories of psychoactive compounds or interventions may be referred to as anxiotropic compounds or agents; some recreational drugs such as alcohol induce anxiolysis initially. Anxiolytic medications have been used for the treatment of anxiety disorder and its related psychological and physical symptoms. Light therapy and other interventions have been found to have an anxiolytic effect. Beta-receptor blockers such as propranolol and oxprenolol, although not anxiolytics, can be used to combat the somatic symptoms of anxiety such as tachycardia and palpitations. Anxiolytics are known as minor tranquilizers; the term is less common in modern texts and was derived from a dichotomy with major tranquilizers known as neuroleptics or antipsychotics. There are concerns that some GABAergics, such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates, may have an anxiogenic effect if used over long periods of time.

Barbiturates exert an anxiolytic effect linked to the sedation. The risk of abuse and addiction is high. Many experts consider these drugs obsolete for treating anxiety but valuable for the short-term treatment of severe insomnia, though only after benzodiazepines or non-benzodiazepines have failed. Benzodiazepines are prescribed for long-term relief of severe and disabling anxiety. Benzodiazepines may be indicated to cover the latent periods associated with the medications prescribed to treat an underlying anxiety disorder, they are used to treat a wide variety of conditions and symptoms and are a first choice when short-term CNS sedation is needed. If benzodiazepines are discontinued after being taken daily for two or more weeks there is some risk of benzodiazepine withdrawal and rebound syndrome, which varies by the specific drug. Tolerance and dependence may occur, but may be clinically acceptable the risk of abuse is smaller than in case of barbiturates. Cognitive and behavioral adverse effects are possible.

Benzodiazepines include: Alprazolam Bromazepam Chlordiazepoxide Clonazepam Clorazepate Diazepam Flurazepam Lorazepam Oxazepam Temazepam Triazolam Benzodiazepines exert their anxiolytic properties at moderate dosage. At higher dosage hypnotic properties occur. Tofisopam is a drug, a benzodiazepine derivative. Like other benzodiazepines, it possesses anxiolytic properties, unlike other benzodiazepines, it does not have anticonvulsant, skeletal muscle relaxant, motor skill-impairing, or amnestic properties. Marketed as a safer alternative to barbiturate anxiolytics, meprobamate was used to relieve anxiety in the late 1950s and 1960s. Like barbiturates, therapeutic doses produce significant overdoses may be fatal. In the US, meprobamate has been replaced with benzodiazepines while the drug is now withdrawn in many European countries and Canada; the muscle relaxant carisoprodol has anxiolytic effects by metabolizing to meprobamate. Various other carbamates have been found to share these effects, such as lorbamate.

Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine approved for clinical use by the FDA in 1956. In addition to its antihistamine properties hydroxyzine possesses anxiolytic properties and is approved for the treatment of anxiety and tension, its sedative properties are useful as a premedication before anesthesia or to induce sedation after anesthesia. Hydroxyzine has been shown to be as effective as benzodiazepines in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder, while producing fewer side-effects. Chlorpheniramine and diphenhydramine have hypnotic and sedative effects with mild anxiolytic-like properties; these drugs are approved by the FDA for allergies and urticaria. Opioids are drugs that are only prescribed for their painkilling properties, but some research is beginning to find that some varieties are effective at treating depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, other ailments associated with or caused by anxiety, they have a high potential for abuse and have one of the highest addiction rates for all drugs.

Many people become addicted to these drugs because they are so effective at blocking emotional pain, including anxiety. To alcohol, people with anxiety disorders are more to become addicted to opioids due to their anxiolytic effect; these drugs range from the prescribed hydrocodone, to the illegal heroin, all the way to much more potent varieties like fentanyl used in trauma or end of life pain management. Most people purchasing these drugs illegally are seeking them out to get a euphoric like high, but many others seek them out because they are so effective at reducing both physical pain and emotional pain, it appears that buprenorphine is gaining some acceptability within the medical community for treating anxiety, OCD, depression. Buprenorphine is similar to methadone in that it is used in opioid replacement therapy as well as pain management, it is safer than methadone and other opioids and has a long half-life leading to less compulsive use among those who attempt to abuse it or have become dependent on it.

There has been research into more abused opioids being prescribed for anxiety disorder, but given that these drugs produce more euphoria and require more constant dosing when compared to buprenorphine, there is a much higher danger

Texas House Bill 2

Texas House Bill 2 is a bill within the Eighty-third Texas Legislature, first introduced into the Texas Senate as Texas Senate Bill 5 on June 11, 2013, related to abortion rights within the state. Among provisions include banning abortions 20 weeks post-fertilization, mandating that doctors practicing abortions must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. SB5 was criticized by state Democrats, passage during a special session in the Texas Senate was blocked by a filibuster by Senator Wendy Davis by the end of the legislative term at the end of June. Governor Rick Perry created a second special session, in which the failed SB5 was reintroduced within the Texas House of Representatives as HB2, passed both Houses and signed into law by Gov. Perry on July 18, 2013; the law faced immediate legal scrutiny, in July 2016, the United States Supreme Court held some parts of the law to be unconstitutional in its decision on Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt. Texas Senate Bill 5 is a list of measures that would amend and add to abortion regulations in Texas, drawn from previous bills that had failed earlier in the legislative term.

Four key measures introduced by the bill included: A ban on abortion at 20 weeks post-fertilization and recognize that the state has a compelling interest to protect fetuses from pain. Requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital within 30 miles. Requiring abortion clinics to meet the same standards as other surgical health-care facilities in the state. Requiring medical oversight for women taking abortion-inducing drugs such as RU-486; the bill would not apply to abortions necessary to save the mother's life or to prevent permanent bodily damage from a pregnancy. During the 2012–2013 Eighty-third Texas Legislature, several bills were introduced related to abortion restrictions but which failed to pass. With several legislative matters left unresolved as the Texas Legislature ended its normal term in May 2013, including voting in new redistricting maps, Governor Rick Perry issued a 30-day special session started May 27, 2013, which under Texas law allows him to ask the legislature to produce legislation for other matters that he requests.

Among issues that Perry sought. SB5 was introduced mid-June 2013, which combined elements of several of the failed bills from the term, it proceeded to be passed by the Senate. In the House, an amended version of SB5 was passed on June 23, 2013. If the bill failed before the normal end of the session, the bill would be dead. Democrat lawmakers in the Senator sought ways to block the passage of the bill. Senator Wendy Davis along with other Senators made plans for her to launch into a filibuster on June 25 as to prevent a call for a vote before the end of the session, which would kill the bill. After ten hours, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst ruled that Davis had gone off topic after Davis began talking about a sonogram bill, forcing a vote on whether the filibuster could continue. Despite efforts to pass the bill, parliamentary enquiries from Leticia R. Van de Putte and other senators, as well as disruption from the gallery caused the session to go on through midnight, the official closure of the special session.

Following the deadline, Republicans indicated that a vote had taken place and passed 19–11, while Democrats declared that the vote had taken place after midnight, making the vote void. Dewhurst conceded that the bill was passed after the deadline and was considered dead. After the bill was thought to have been passed, a record was added to the official web page on the history of the bill. According to the page, the timestamp of the bill's passage was listed as the 26th; the page was taken down and altered to say that the bill was passed on the 25th. According to Texas Penal Code, Section 37.10, it is a crime to make an alteration, false in a government document or record. According to the Legislative Reference Library of Texas the Texas Legislature Online system "... is not the official record of those actions, enters actions on TLO as a public service independently of the officers of the house or senate." The Public Integrity Unit has begun an investigation into the events after receiving complaints.

The day after Davis' filibuster, Governor Perry ordered a second special session to start July 1, 2013, with demands for the legislation to look at three specific topics including abortion. Perry stated that it was due to the " breakdown of decorum and decency to prevent us from doing what the people of this state hired us to do." During the second session, a large number of supporters and opponents of the bill showed up at the Texas Legislative building while wearing blue or orange shirts in support of their respective sides. SB5 was revived as the new House Bill 2, which passed by July 10, 2013 by a 96–49 margin and sent the measure to the Texas Senate; the Senate passed the bill on July 2013, with a bipartisan vote with a 19 -- 11 margin. The bill was signed into law by Perry on July 18, 2013. One commentator for the National Review stated that "Wendy Davis won the battle, but Rick Perry won the war." Organizations and people on both sides used websites like Twitter and the Texas Tribune to share their side and learn more, with several hashtags becoming popular on Twitter.

Coverage and a livestream of the Texas Legislature by the Texas Tribune has been said to have been the reason that the bill became national, international, news. Psychedelic rock band The Bright Light Social Hour were in the gallery during Senator Dav

His father He Mo served as an officer at Xia Prefecture, he Jintao settled at Weibo's capital Wei Prefecture, came to serve in the Weibo army, under then-military governor Tian Hongzheng, obedient to the imperial government. In a campaign that Tian waged against Wang Chengzong, the military governor of Chengde Circuit, when Wang was resisting the imperial government, there was a night when Weibo forces conducted a night raid against Chengde's capital Heng Prefecture. Wang responded by sending an officer in an iron mask, commanding 1,000 cavalry soldiers, to counterattack against the Weibo forces, he Jintao engaged the Chengde cavalry soldiers and defeated them capturing the officer in iron mask, causing much apprehension among the Chengde soldiers.
