Purate is a version of Oxazepam, one of the many alternative Benzo's, which are sedative tranquillizers. SO they may help one to sleep if one is anxious, and may help reduce some of the symptoms of anxiety / GAD. They NEVER EVER "cure" such disorders ; they relieve some of the symptoms. There can be problems of dependency on the meds if one takes them every day or night for over 2 months, and the experts recommend against long-term use, at least not without a careful assessment by a specialist psychiatrist. Other meds, such as those also used to treat Depression, can be very useful in GAD, as can talking treatments like CBT ( COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy )
