Amino Acids And Diazepam

Diazepam – An overview of the mechanism of Action
Diazepam can be administered orally or through parenteral means. Under certain circumstances, the drug is even streamed into the body through rectal tubes and suppositories. Once the drug is streamed into the blood it reaches the brain and works on GABA. GABA is one of the neuron chemicals which are mainly responsible for keeping the brain functionality normal. GABA is one such neurochemical which is mainly responsible to control the excitability of neurons (brain cells). Excitation in these neurons results in anxiety, agitation, insomnia, and seizures in extreme cases. Diazepam increases the effectiveness of GABA and helps to control the excitability of neurons.
