AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Lorazepam tablets.
Lorazepam is a benzodiazepine. It acts on the brain and nerves (central nervous system) to produce a calming effect. Lorazepam typically enhances the effects of certain natural chemicals in the body. GABA is a neurotransmitter and it acts as a natural ‘’nerve-calming agent’’. Lorazepam tablets enhance the action of GABA, thereby producing a calming effect on your body. Lorazepam is primarily excreted in the urine.
