Lam Et 0.25 MG Description

Lam Et Tablet contains etizolam as the main ingredient. It belongs to the group of medications known as anxiolytics. It is used in the treatment of various psychiatric issues like anxiety disorders,

acute panic episodes and sleep problems. It also acts as a sedative-hypnotic and an anticonvulsant. Etizolam is a benzodiazepine that acts by increasing the effect of GABA (chemical messenger) responsible for the feeling of relaxation over the central nervous system (brain, lungs and heart), thus helping the patient feel calm and relaxed. Lam Et Tablet is not prescribed for patients below the age of 18 years. It is also not prescribed for patients with a known history of substance abuse. Lam Et Tablet is found to have less addiction potential than other benzodiazepines.
