This drug is primarily used to prevent and treat seizures, panic disorder, and movement disorder akathisia. It is a tranquilizer that comes from the drug group benzodiazepines. It is also an anticonvulsant, muscle relaxant that works by increasing the effects of GABA. This is a neurotransmitter that moderates the movement of nerve signals in the brain.
