Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Epitril contains clonzepam which has anticonvulsant (anti seizure), muscle relaxant and anxiolytic properties (reduces anxiety).
If the reason that the drug was prescribed is unclear, then you should consider speaking to you doctor for clarification before stopping it.

I hope this helps
