Vizep 10 MG Description

Vizep 10mg Tablet contains chlordiazepoxide as its active ingredient. It is included in the group of medicines known as sedative-hypnotics. Chlordiazepoxide belongs to the group of benzodiazepines an

d acts by regulating chemicals in the brain in order to reduce brain activity. It is primarily used in the treatment of psychiatric ailments like anxiety disorders, symptoms of alcohol withdrawal and in some cases of sleep disorders. Anxiety disorders present themselves as deep, strong and sustained feelings of worry, fear and indecisiveness in daily life activities, which hampers a person's social and mental progress. If left untreated, it may culminate into depression. When stopping alcohol after years of consumption in more than normal quantities, alcohol withdrawal symptoms include increased sweating, mood changes, change in dietary habits, tremors and increased heart rate. Vizep 10mg Tablet carries the risk of developing dependence on prolonged use and may cause withdrawal symptoms like confused thinking, uncontrolled muscle tremors and eye movements. This medication also has the risk of habit formation over prolonged use. Therefore, regular monitoring of patients, especially those with a known history of substance abuse, is a must.
