Clobazam Drug Information

Clobazam belongs to a group of antiepileptic and anticonvulsant drugs that are prescribed for adults and children. Seizures occur due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain. These abnormal electrical activities in turn cause seizure symptoms. Because different parts of the brain control different parts of the body. So which part of the body has a seizure depends on the area where the abnormal activity occurs. Sometimes a seizure can affect the whole brain and body, which is called a secondary seizure.

Clobazam is one of the most common drugs used to prevent seizures. This drug normalizes the electrical activity of the brain and reduces the symptoms of seizures by reducing abnormal electrical changes in the brain.
