What Is Xanax?

Xanax is a prescription drug in the benzodiazepine class of drugs belonging to a group known as minor tranquilizers.

Typically, doctors prescribe Xanax to help relieve the symptoms of anxiety disorders. It is a short-acting benzodiazepine, so its effects wear off relatively quickly.

Understanding Xanax

Xanax is a central nervous system depressant, and it works by slowing down the brain’s activities. Xanax can be habit-forming, and it should only be taken as prescribed by a doctor.

Xanax can cause several side effects, including dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and forgetfulness. It can also cause changes in mood and behavior, and it can be addictive if not taken as prescribed.

Xanax Effects and Abuse

Some people may abuse Xanax because it makes them feel happy, relaxed, and calm. Others may use Xanax because they believe it will help them cope with stress or anxiety.

Xanax is abused by taking it in larger doses, making it more often than prescribed, crushing tablets and snorting or injecting them, or taking it along with other substances such as alcohol. This usage can lead to addiction, overdose, and even death.

Xanax Addiction and Abuse Treatment

There are several different mental health and drug abuse treatment program options available for Xanax addiction and abuse. The most common are group counseling, individual counseling, and inpatient or outpatient rehab programs.

In addition to these forms of treatment, there are support groups available for those suffering from Xanax addictions and their friends and family members.
