Lopez 2 MG Description

Injection Lopez is administered in cases of epilepsy and anxiety disorders. Epilepsy, commonly known as fits, is a condition that results from abnormal activity of the brain cells causing seizures

nd unusual behaviour. It may also cause temporary loss of consciousness. Anxiety disorder is a mental disorder in which the person feels fear and anxiety out of proportion to the situation, which interferes with their ability to function normally. Injection Lopez treats these conditions by bringing changes in the chemical messengers in the brain and thereby reducing abnormal activity in the nerve cells. It also increases hormones responsible for relieving anxiety and relaxing tense muscles. The active ingredient in Lopez injection is lorazepam. It brings about a calming effect in the brain, relaxes muscles, and alleviates anxiety. It produces deep sleep and controls seizures. Some side effects of Injection Lopez include headache, sleepiness, tiredness, muscle weakness, loss of balance, and blurred vision. This injection should be administered only on the recommendation of a doctor.
