About BENZOSED INJECTION 10ML

BENZOSED INJECTION 10ML belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines (sedatives) used to induce sleepiness during therapeutic procedures (like endoscopy or colonoscopy) or complicated medical tests known as procedural sedation. Besides this, BENZOSED INJECTION 10ML also treat acute (sudden) repetitive fits (epilepsy). Conscious sedation is a technique in which drugs help you relax (sedative), reduce anxiety and inhibit pain (anaesthetic) during a medical test or procedure. It is usually referred to as procedural sedation and analgesia. Epilepsy (fits) is a disorder in which there is a sudden, uncontrolled disturbance in nerve cells' electrical activity in the brain.

BENZOSED INJECTION 10ML contains Midazolam that works by increasing GABA activity (a chemical messenger in the brain that acts as a natural nerve-calming agent) involved in inducing drowsiness.

Also, BENZOSED INJECTION 10ML prevents fits by stabilizing the electrical activity of nerve cells in the brain.
