The Nonbenzodiazepines (Z-drugs)

Nonbenzodiazepines, although chemically distinct from benzodiazepines, operate very similarly upon GABA receptors. The only significant difference between these two classes of drugs is that nonbenzodiazepines have a much shorter half-life than most benzodiazepines. BenzoBuddies makes little distinction between benzodiazepines and Z-drugs.
