How Does Dalmane Work?As mentioned, Dalmane is one of a group of medications known as benzodiazepines. These drugs have several different effects on the body, including:
All benzodiazepine medications can have these effects to some degree, depending on the specific medication and the dose. They work in the brain by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical that is naturally calming. GABA can slow down or stop certain nerve signals in the brain. This is why Dalmane and other benzodiazepines are known as mild tranquilizers, sedatives, or central nervous system depressants (CNS depressants).
