Yes, it is an anxiolytic -- all benzodiazepines are though they vary in their anxiolytic, anticonvulsant, anaesthetic, and sedative-hypnotic qualities.

Klonopin, Valium, and Librium are long half life primarily anxiolytic and anticonvulsant benzodiazepines.

Ativan and Xanax are short half life mostly anxiolytic and somewhat sedative benzodiazepines.

Restoril, Dalmane, Halcion, and (where available) Rohypnol are sedative-hypnotic mostly.
