The Overview of Valium Effect
Tranquilizers – from the Latin word tranquillo – “calm.” Often restful are confused with antidepressants, considering these terms synonymous.? Antidepressants refer to psychotropic stimulative drugs that influence the nervous system, while restful are to oppressors. That is, antidepressants increase emotional activity and improve mood, and restful – soothe.
Anxiolytics may have different effects, the severity of which varies with different drugs. Some anxiolytics, for example, do not have a hypnotic and sedative effect. Preparations of this group have the following actions:
Anti-anxiety – reduction of anxiety, fear, anxiety, elimination of obsessive thoughts and excessive suspiciousness. Sedative – a decrease in activity and excitability, accompanied by a decrease in concentration, inhibition, drowsiness. Sleeping – the increase in the depth and duration of sleep, the acceleration of its onset, is primarily characteristic of benzodiazepines.
Muscle relaxation is a relaxation of the muscles, which is manifested by weakness and lethargy. It is a positive factor in relieving stress, but it can have a negative effect on work that requires physical activity, and even when working at a computer.
Anticonvulsant – blocking the spread of epileptogenic activity. In addition, some restful have a psychostimulating and antiphobic effect, can normalize the autonomic nervous system activity, but this is rather an exception than the rule.
Valium is an anxiolytic agent of the benzodiazepine series. It stimulates benzodiazepine receptors. This leads to an increased inhibitory effect on the transmission of nerve impulses. Valium stimulates benzodiazepine receptors located in the allosteric center of postsynaptic receptors of the ascending activating reticular formation of the brainstem and intercalary neurons of the lateral horns of the spinal cord; reduces the excitability of subcortical structures of the brain (limbic system, thalamus, hypothalamus), inhibits polysynaptic spinal reflexes.
The sedative effect is due to the influence on the reticular formation of the brainstem and the nonspecific nuclei of the thalamus and is manifested by a decrease in the symptomatology of neurotic origin (anxiety, fear).
Anticonvulsant action occurs by enhancing presynaptic inhibition. The spread of epileptogenic activity is suppressed, but the excited state of the focus is not removed.
Valium is an effective drug that has significant contraindications. That’s why he is released in pharmacies only on prescription.
