Lopez 1 MG Description

Lopez tablet is a prescription medication used to manage the symptoms of anxiety disorders and short-term treatment of anxiety in patients with depression. Anxiety and other mood disorders affect the

way you feel, and they can also sometimes be accompanied by clinical depression. The reasons behind most mood disorders are mostly unknown. It can be caused by common triggers like stress, trauma, etc. Lopez tablets contain lorazepam as an active ingredient. It acts as a central nervous system depressant. It reduces the excess activity in the brain by increasing certain chemical messengers, which produces a calming effect. They also help stabilise mood by lowering the excess activity of nerves in the brain. Some of the common side effects of Lopez Tablet include sleepiness, dizziness, weight gain, etc. These tablets can cause behavioural changes and increase the tendency of suicidal thoughts. Lopez tablets also cause physical dependency when you use them for the long term. So, it is essential to monitor the dosage and use it only for a short time and as recommended by the doctor. Also, you should not stop using Lopez medicine suddenly as it can cause withdrawal symptoms like sudden muscle movements, sweating, nausea, muscle pain, etc.
