Zetran

Generic Name: Diazepam

Zetran is a drug that may be prescribed for the treatment of anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, muscle spasms, and seizures. The drug works by enhancing the effects of a naturally calming brain chemical called gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA). While most people tolerate Zetran well, side effects may occur, including drowsiness, fatigue, and coordination problems. The medication is available in brand-name and generic forms medically named as Diazepam.

Your doctor may prescribe Zetran for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal, anxiety, muscle spasms, or seizures. When used for treating seizures, Zetran can be helpful in stopping a seizure that is particularly hard to control. From time to time, Zetran may be used for the treatment of something other than the conditions mentioned above. Among these other, Zetran uses are the treatment of insomnia, agitation, and benzodiazepine withdrawal.
