Hi there, thanks for asking. Zepose is the generic shape of diazepam. It is as effective as the brand name. Usually after 5 to 10 years, the companies allow another countries to produce their drug and sell it. The quality is controlled and Indian medications have a very good quality.
The point is that diazepam should be cautiously used after the age of 65. Since its metabolism is affected by liver function decrease, it should be mentioned to the doctor to reevaluate his decision. There are other similar medications from is class that do not have liver metabolism and could be used.
Let me know about any other question. Wish you a good health.
