How Medistat Nasal Spray works

Medistat 0.5 mg Nasal Spray is a benzodiazepine (BZD). It is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream through the inner lining of the nose. Once absorbed, it works by increasing the action of GABA, a chemical messenger which suppresses the abnormal and excessive activity of the nerve cells in the brain. This helps the patient to recover from a seizure faster.
