Intranasal midazolam? Sublingual? Anyone. I want an immediate onset of action.

Sublingual diazepam is very quick.

Yep, it is very fast acting. No doubt you will get told otherwise (eg. a lot of doctors claim lorazepam works more rapidly, but it doesn't).

Diazepam on a empty stomach works much more quickly than most benzos. It is interesting how few doctors realise this.

Faster than sublingual alprazolam?

Should be similar.

Sublingual administration doesn't speed the onset of alprazolam, however, beyond a placebo effect. Sublingually administered alprazolam taken without water is absorbed more slowly than a plain alprazolam tablet swallowed whole with a glass of water. The reason is that alprazolam and other benzos are absorbed predominantly from the GI tract, not the mouth, and that a glass of water speeds absorption. A tablet swallowed on an empty stomach with a full glass of water will take effect most rapidly.
