I Take Zapiz 1mg For Panic Attack Problem Since 3years. I Want To Know The Side Effects Of The Drug.

I am 32 yrs old. And suffering from panic attack problem since I was in my second year of graduation. My family tried many medications taking me to best of doctors but of no use. Ultimately four years ago the doc i met last was a great blessing for me as i got out of my problem as per his medication. Now i have become addcted to Zapiz 1mg. I am not confident to go out without taking this medicine. I got married 2 yrs back and my husband knows about my situation very well. I get all his support.

I am really worried about the side effects of this tab Zapiz 1mg. I would like to know about the side effects.

Answer

Zapiz is a foreign name for a benzodiazepam derivitive (a triazolobenzodiazepine), Zapizolam. As far as I can determine, it's not sold in the US, but is essentially the same medication as alprazolam and should have the same side effect profile.
