About ZICAM DT 2MG TABLET 10S

ZICAM DT 2MG TABLET 10S 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.

ZICAM DT 2MG TABLET 10S 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.
