About ZAPIZ 2MG TABLET

ZAPIZ 2MG TABLET belongs to a group of medications called Benzodiazepines (BZD) that are primarily used for the treatment of anxiety disorders and prevention of seizures (fits) due to epilepsy.

An anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder characterized by feelings of excessive fear or worry, that affects an individual's daily activities. On the other hand, Epilepsy is a chronic disorder characterized by episodes of seizures (fits). In this condition, there is a chemical change in the brain cells (neurons) that leads to a sudden surge of electrical activity in the brain followed by sudden jerky movements of limbs or a part of the body.

ZAPIZ 2MG TABLET works by increasing levels of brain cell (neuron) calming chemical, known as gamma-amino-butyric-acid (GABA) in your brain, that helps to relieve anxiety, stop seizures attacks (fits), and cause relaxation of the tense muscles. Besides this, ZAPIZ 2MG TABLET also relieves temporary insomnia (sleeplessness) due to anxiety disorders.
