Zicam Dt 0.25 MG Description

Zicam tablets are mainly prescribed to treat mood disorders like anxiety disorders and depression. This medicine is also helpful in lowering the frequency of epilepsy (seizures). The active ingredien

t in Zicam tablets is Clonazepam. All mood disorders affect the way a person feels and acts. While the causes for these disorders are not known, sometimes they are triggered by common emotional reactions like worry, anger, etc. The mode of action of Zicam tablets is by lowering the abnormal activity of excited nerve cells in the brain. The medicine works by balancing certain chemical messengers in the brain and inducing feelings of calmness and well-being. Side effects of Zicam tablets include sleepiness, fatigue, dizziness, etc. They can also cause behavioural changes and sudden mood changes, as well as suicidal thoughts and tendencies. If used long-term, it is necessary to monitor the dosage of this medicine. Zicam tablets may also lead to physical dependency (return of symptoms when the medicine is stopped). Suddenly stopping Zicam tablets can result in withdrawal symptoms like tremors, sweating, nausea, muscle pain, etc.
