Living with panic disorder is very common and this can be extremely debilitating to a person?s social, work and family relationship.
Panic disorder is an anxiety disorder and is characterized by unexpected and repeated episodes of intense fear usually accompanied by a pounding heart, sweatiness, weakness, faintness, or dizziness. During these attacks, people with panic disorder may flush or feel chilled; hands may tingle or feel numb; and may experience nausea, chest pain, or smothering sensations. Panic attacks usually produce a sense of unreality, a fear of impending fate, or a fear of losing control.
This disorder is a real illness that can be successfully treated with clonazepam i.e. Xetril. Clonazepam (Xetril) is a well established and preferred drug of choice for panic and seizure disorders in Bangladesh.
Clonazepam (Xetril) is an anti-anxiety medication in the benzodiazepine family. Clonazepam (Xetril) acts by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter which inhibits many of the activities of the brain. It is believed that excessive activity in the brain may lead to anxiety or other psychiatric disorders. Clonazepam (Xetril) also is frequently used to prevent seizures.
Because of strong anxiolytic properties and euphoric side-effects clonazepam is said to be among the class of 'highly potent' benzodiazepines. Although benzodiazepines are valuable in the treatment of anxiety disorders, they have some potential for misuse and may cause dependence or addiction. The sedative effects of clonazepam (Xetril) are relatively weak, when compared to its strong anxiolytic and anticonvulsant effects, as well as when compared to most other benzodiazepines.
