Diazepam – How does it work?
Diazepam is a derivative of benzodiazepine and it works on GABA, a brain receptor. GABA is brain receptor which consists of certain subunits and inhibitory channels. GABA is mainly responsible for the excitability of the neurons. When the balances of the brain chemicals are disturbed, the neurons either become over-excited or in opposite case function slow than normal. When neurons are excited they cause anxiety disorders, agitation, and body shakeups. When slowed down, they cause insomnia and hallucinations. Diazepam works on the binding inhibitory channel of GABA and re-establishes the balances of these chemical levels. Diazepam works on cerebral cortex, the limbic systems, thalamus, and the hypothalamus. Diazepam also relaxes the muscles by inhibiting the polysynaptic trails in the spinal cord.
