About ZAXPAM 30MG TABLET

ZAXPAM 30MG TABLET belongs to a class of benzodiazepines called 'anxiolytic' or 'anti-anxiety agents' used to treat the short-term (2-4 weeks) treatment for anxiety or panic disorder. Anxiety or panic disorder is a mental health disorder associated with unnecessary fear, worry, and excessive nervousness that may interfere with daily activities. The symptoms of anxiety include feeling more stress than required for that event and a lack of ability to set aside restlessness and worry.

ZAXPAM 30MG TABLET contains Oxazepam, an anti-anxiety drug that works by increasing the activity of GABA (a chemical messenger in the brain that acts as a natural nerve-calming agent) that is involved in inducing drowsiness. Thereby, ZAXPAM 30MG TABLET relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety, and induces drowsiness.
