Clonam 0.25 MG Description

Clonam Tab contains Clonazepam as its active ingredient. It belongs to the group of medicines known as antiepileptics. It is primarily used in the treatment of psychiatric ailments like anxiety disor

ders, panic disorders, epileptic fits or seizures and some cases of mild sleep disorders. Anxiety disorders present themselves as deep, strong and sustained feelings of worry, fear and indecisiveness in daily life activities, hampering a person's social and mental progress. It has a strong tendency to cause depression. Epilepsy is a brain disorder caused by overactivity in the brain tissues and is characterised by seizures and uncontrolled body movements. Clonazepam belongs to the group of benzodiazepines and acts by regulating chemicals in the brain to reduce brain activity. It may cause side effects like dizziness, fatigue, headache, confusion and depression. Clonam is an oral tablet to be taken with or without food. Clonam Tab can be prescribed for patients under 18 based on their health and weight. This medication carries the risk of habit formation over prolonged use, therefore regular monitoring of patients, especially with a known history of substance abuse, is a must.
