Tranxene is part of a group of medicines known as benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines have several different effects on the body, including:

* Stopping seizures; * Reducing anxiety; * Causing sleepiness; * Relaxing muscles; * Impairing short-term memory.

All benzodiazepines can have these effects to some degree, depending on the specific medication and the dosage.Tranxene and other benzodiazepines are known as mild tranquilizers, sedatives, or central nervous system depressants (CNS depressants).

Hope the info helps? Take care, be safe & well!
