What Drugs produce amnesia?

Typically benzodiazepines are most effective at producing anterograde amnesia, meaning a loss of memory after the event causing the amnesia. Benzodiazepines are psychoactive drugs that act as hypnotics, sedatives, anticonvulsants, anxiolytics, amnesics, and muscle relaxers. Some examples of benzodiazepines are flunitrazepam, commonly called Rohypnol or "roofies", clonazepam (Klonopin), lorazepam (Ativan), and diazepam (Valium). Benzodiazepines, specifically flunitrazepam, are commonly used as date rape drugs for their sedative and amnesic effects.
