About SOLZAM 5MG TABLET

SOLZAM 5MG TABLET belongs to a class of anxiolytic drugs called benzodiazepines (BZD) primarily used to treat epilepsy (fits), severe anxiety over a short period. Also, SOLZAM 5MG TABLET is used in combination with other medicines to treat schizophrenia (a mental illness). Epilepsy (fits) is a disorder in which there is a sudden, uncontrolled disturbance in the electrical activity of nerve cells in the brain. Anxiety is a mental health disorder associated with fear, worry and excessive nervousness. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that affects the ability of a person to feel, think and behave clearly.

SOLZAM 5MG TABLET works by increasing the release of GABA (a chemical messenger that acts as a nerve-calming agent) in the brain by acting on GABA receptors. Thereby, SOLZAM 5MG TABLET prevents fits by stabilizing the electrical activity of nerve cells in the brain. Also, SOLZAM 5MG TABLET calms nerve cells and helps in reducing anxiety and induces sleep.

Take SOLZAM 5MG TABLET with or without food and swallow whole with a glass of water. Your doctor will advise you how often you take SOLZAM 5MG TABLET based on your medical condition.
