Stresam (Etifoxine, Etafenoxine, Strezam) is an anxiolytic. A benzoxazine derivative has an anxiolytic activity and has a mild sedative effect. It selectively impacts chloride channels of supramolecular GABA-benzodiazepine receptor complex. Stresam does not cause addiction and does not have withdrawal effects.

The active substance of Stresam is etifoxine hydrochloride. It alleviates anxiety, tension, promotes sedation and has a calming effect without affecting clarity of consciousness or neurologic conditions. Its effect is similar to other benzodiazepine drugs but it is more effective and has fewer side effects. Stresam produces its anxiolytic effects by binding to β2 and β3 subunits of the GABA receptor complex and so is acting at a different target site.
