Frisium is a brand name for Clobazam. According to the Australian Medicines Handbook (AMH), Clobazam may be prescribed for acute treatment of seizures or in conjunction with antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) if the AEDs alone are not adequately effective.

Frisium is a benzodiazepine, a class of drugs used to treat anxiety. It is believed that Frisium works by decreasing the excitability of neurons in the brain.

How do I take it?
Frisium comes in tablet form.
