Product Description

Etizolam Tablets come under the brand name “Pasorest 0.5”, and belong to a class of ‘anxiolytic’ (anxiety reducers) called benzodiazepines primarily used in the treatment of anxiety disorder, panic disorder and insomnia (difficulty in falling or staying asleep). Anxiety is a mental health disorder associated with fear, worry and excessive nervousness. Insomnia is a disorder of sleep that causes difficulty in falling asleep or staying asleep.

Panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder that causes sudden feelings of fear even when there is no real danger with symptoms like a fast heartbeat. Etizolam Tablets reduce anxiety/panic, induce sleep and relax muscles due to their episodes. It works by increasing the activity of GABA (a chemical messenger in the brain that acts as a natural nerve-calming agent) and is involved in inducing sleep. Thereby,  this tablet relaxes muscles, reduces anxiety and helps to fall asleep.
