Mogadon/Nitrazepam belongs to a class of medicines called benzodiazepines. It acts on receptors in the brain and cause the release of a chemical called GABA (gamma amino butyric acid). GABA is a major inhibitory chemical in the brain involved in inducing sleepiness and control of anxiety and fits.
Nitrazepam is most commonly used to treat insomnia. It decreases the time taken to fall asleep and nocturnal awakenings, as well as increasing the total amount of time spent sleeping. As mogadon remains active in the body for many hours, drowsiness may occur the next day.
