Landsen review

Landsen belongs to the group of medicament known as benzodiazepine. This group includes diazepam or Valium and flurazepam. Landsen enhances the effects of the GABA neurotransmitter, inhibiting activity in the brain.

Adults and children with seizures, such as akinetic, petit mal, and myoclonus seizure, may take Landsen. It is also effective for relieving short-term anxiety symptoms. This medicament can be used to complement other medicaments for seizure disorders.

Dosage of Landsen depends on the patient and the condition being treated. Adults suffering from seizures take 1.5 milligrams three times a day. The dosage can be increased up to 1 milligram daily until the seizures are controlled. For patients with panic disorders the initial dose is .25 milligrams twice a day. The dose can be increased up to 1 milligram a day after 3 days.

The most common side effect is sedation. About half the patients taking Landsen experience sedation, while 1/3 experience dizziness, unsteadiness, and weakness. Other side effects include headache, difficulty in sleeping, loss of orientation and unipolar disorder.

Landsen can result in physical dependence, which is typical with benzodiazepines. Patients who suddenly stop taking the medicament may feel side effects that include insomnia and agitation. Patients taking Landsen for a longer period than prescribed may experience muscle cramping, seizure, vomiting, tremors, and sweating.

Like most antiepileptic medicaments, Landsen results in an increased risk of patients having a suicidal behavior. Patients who use Landsen should balance the risk with the clinical requirement for antiepileptic medicament.

Landsen heightens the effects of medicaments that slow down the brain processes including alcohol, narcotics, and barbiturates.

Patients that are pregnant should not take Landsen since it has been linked to fetal damage especially in the first few months of the pregnancy. Most healthcare masters discourage patients that are pregnant from taking Landsen throughout their pregnancy.

Before taking Landsen, patients should tell their healthcare masters if they have any allergy especially to benzodiazepines such as lorazepam and diazepam. Patients with liver disease, glaucoma, medicament dependency, kidney disease, breathing disorder, and mental disorder should discuss their condition with their healthcare master before agreeing to take this medicament.

Taking Landsen may make a patient dizzy or drowsy, so be cautious when driving or operating machinery. The elderly are also more susceptible to the side effects of Landsen, most notably confusion and somnolence.

Landsen can have serious negative interactions with sodium oxybate. If a patient is taking oxybate, he or she must immediately inform their healthcare master before beginning to take Landsen. Patients should tell their healthcare master all the medicaments - prescription or non-prescription - that they are taking.

Anti-depressants including fluoxetine, nefazodone, fluvoxamine can interact negatively with Landsen. Other medicaments that cause somnolence such as antihistamines, anti-anxiety, and anti-seizure medicaments can interact negatively with Landsen.
