Benzodiazepine anticonvulsants

What are Benzodiazepine anticonvulsants

Benzodiazepines enhance activation of GABA receptors and act as central nervous system depressants. They inhibit spread of discharge that causes seizures in epileptics.

Benzodiazepines are effective anticonvulsants but due to their sedative effect they are rarely used as maintenance therapy. Diazepam, a benzodiazepine, is given intravenously to treat status epilepticus, which can be a life threatening condition where seizures occur almost continuously.
