Epirax may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Unlabeled Uses

Treatment of irritable bowel syndrome.

Epirax is a tranquilizer of benzodiazepines. This medication has anxiolytic, sedative, hypnotic, anticonvulsant, muscle relaxant action central. The mechanism of action is associated with increased inhibitory effect of GABA in the central nervous system by increasing the sensitivity of the GABA-receptor mediator by stimulating benzodiazepine receptors.

Epirax has antianxiety, sedative, appetite-stimulating and weak analgesic actions. The drug seems to block EEG arousal from stimulation in the brain stem reticular formation. The drug has been studied extensively in many species of animals and these studies are suggestive of action on the limbic system of the brain, which recent evidence indicates is involved in emotional responses. Hostile monkeys were made tame by oral drug doses which did not cause sedation. Epirax revealed a "taming" action with the elimination of fear and aggression. The taming effect of Epirax was further demonstrated in rats made vicious by lesions in the septal area of the brain. The drug dosage which effectively blocked the vicious reaction was well below the dose which caused sedation in these animals.

Epirax is a sleeping pill. It helps you sleep if you have problems sleeping (a condition known as insomnia). Epirax also helps to relieve anxiety and help you to relax before certain surgical or dental procedures. It may also be used to relieve symptoms caused by alcohol withdrawal, such as trembling and confusion. Epirax may also be used to relieve muscle spasms.
