About SUPRABENZ 5MG TABLET

SUPRABENZ 5MG TABLET belongs to a class of 'anxiolytic' (anxiety reducer) called benzodiazepine primarily used in the treatment of anxiety disorder, panic disorder and insomnia (difficulty in falling or staying asleep). Anxiety is a mental health disorder associated with fear, worry and excessive nervousness. Insomnia is a disorder of sleep that causes difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep. Panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder that causes sudden feelings of fear even when there is no real danger with symptoms like a fast heartbeat.

SUPRABENZ 5MG TABLET reduces anxiety/panic, induces sleep and relaxes muscles due to fits episodes. It works by increasing the activity of GABA (a chemical messenger in the brain that acts as a natural nerve-calming agent) and is involved in inducing sleep. Thereby, SUPRABENZ 5MG TABLET relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety and helps to fall asleep.

Take SUPRABENZ 5MG TABLET with or without food and swallow whole with a glass of water. Do not break, crush or chew it. Your doctor will advise you how often you take SUPRABENZ 5MG TABLET based on your medical condition.
