Xanax (generic name: alprazolam) is an oral medication that can treat symptoms of anxiety and panic disorders. Xanax belongs to a class of medications called benzodiazepine, which are thought to produce a calming effect on the user by enhancing the activity of neurotransmitters in the brain. Specifically, xanax attaches to a receptor called GABA-A (gamma-aminobutyric acid-A) in order to produce the calming effect. Xanax is one of the most frequently prescribed medications in the United States and is very effective in treating anxiety symptoms when taken correctly. Like any medication, it can produce some side effects such as drowsiness, light-headedness, low energy, and headache. Despite its effectiveness on symptoms of anxiety and panic disorders, xanax should only be used under the direction of a doctor because it can be habit-forming and addictive. This medication should not be taken in doses larger than what is prescribed or for longer than prescribed by a medical professional. Often, a doctor will start a patient on a very small dosage (0.25 milligrams) and increase the dosage as needed to provide the patient relief. Xanax is available at this site in dosages up to 2 milligrams. Certain medications can cause negative interactions when taken with xanax, so you should always tell your doctor what other medications you currently take before starting xanax. Because it is habit-forming, some users have reported symptoms of withdrawal from xanax. Your doctor should taper your dosage of xanax in order to stop use of the drug safely. Withdrawal symptoms can include the following: • Seizures • Depression • Anxiety/panic attacks • Headaches • Insomnia • Sweating • Delirium • Irritability Other withdrawal symptoms may be present as well. Addiction to xanax is serious. Withdrawal symptoms may make it difficult for a user to stop taking xanax because they are so unpleasant. If you suspect you are addicted to xanax, it is best to seek medical help rather than attempt to quit the medication on your own. Individuals who are addicted to xanax will be weaned off safely and in the most comfortable way possible. Doctors may even prescribe other anti-anxiety medications to help in this process. After detoxing, the patient will usually see a therapist or counselor in order to develop healthier habits to handle anxiety and address the problems that led to xanax abuse. Again, other medications may be prescribed after the detox in place of xanax to help with the patient's anxiety. Before you begin taking any new medications, especially xanax, you should talk with your doctor about any other symptoms or medical conditions you are experiencing. Additionally, if you experience severe side effects from xanax, you should let your doctor know as soon as possible. Xanax is not right for everyone and your doctor will help determine which course of medication is best for your situation. If you need assistance with xanax addiction, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is a well-known resource for treatment and counseling services. When used safely, xanax has been able to provide relief from anxiety symptoms for many patients.
