MECHANISM OF ACTION

Clonazepam works by causing release of a signalling chemical called GABA in the brain, which is involved in transmitting messages between the nerve cells and also acts as a natural 'nerve-calming' agent. By increasing the release of GABA, clonazepam helps to calm the excessive electrical nerve activity that is responsible for causing fits (seizures).
