About Egpam-Plus Tablet

Egpam-Plus Tablet is used to treat anxiety. Besides this, Egpam-Plus Tablet is also used to treat high blood pressure, panic disorder, seizure disorder, fast heartbeat, and migraine. Anxiety is a mental health disorder characterised by feelings of anxiety, worry or fear that are strong enough to interfere with one’s daily activities. Symptoms of anxiety include rapid breathing, increased heart rate, restlessness, trouble concentrating, and difficulty falling asleep.

Egpam-Plus Tablet is a combination of two drugs: Clonazepam (benzodiazepine) and Propranolol (beta-blocker). Clonazepam works by increasing the action of a chemical messenger called GABA; this helps suppress the excessive and abnormal activity of the nerve cells in the brain. Propranolol blocks certain chemical messengers' action on the heart and blood vessels; this helps reduce heart rate and blood pressure.
