Bromazepam is a medication indicated for anxiety, tension, panic attacks, and other problems associated with anxiety syndrome. It is also indicated for use in the treatment of mood disorders and also schizophrenia.
Benzodiazepines like bromazepam work by binding to receptors in the brain that are responsible for feelings of relaxation and sedation. Bromazepam enhances the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a neurotransmitter that helps to calm the nervous system. By increasing the activity of GABA, bromazepam can help to reduce anxiety and promote sleep. At low doses, this drug produces a reduction in tension and anxiety; but when the doses are high, it has a sedative and muscle relaxant effect.
