Product Description

Xanax is a prescription drug’s brand name. It has Alprazolam as an active ingredient and is often prescribed to treat depression and anxiety disorders – among them are generalized anxiety/panic/social anxiety disorder, as well as anxiety caused by depression. It can be used for relieving the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, for treating nausea caused by chemotherapy, etc. Xanax is among the most prescribed medicines in the US.

Alprazolam belongs to a class of benzodiazepine drugs. It’s available in the form of tablets for oral administration (including extended release and disintegrating tablets) and a liquid, produced by different pharmaceutical companies. Generic Alprazolam is also available.

How Xanax Works

People suffering from depression or anxiety often have unbalanced chemicals in the brain. Xanax affects them and restores the balance. It has sedative, anxiolytic, hypnotic, amnestic, and anticonvulsant action, and also relaxes muscles.

Alprazolam reaches peak concentration in plasma in 1-2 hours. Peak benefits are often achieved after a week of intake. Generic Xanax works in the same way as the branded medicine.

How to Use Xanax

You should always take Xanax as prescribed by your doctor, as he/she appoints the treatment based on such factors as your health condition, age, medications consumed. Usually the dose is increased gradually. As the treatment comes to an end, the dose is slowly reduced.

Standard Xanax comes as 2, 1, and 0.5 mg tabs. The tabs should be taken orally with a glass of water, with or without food. It is possible to split the tablet if necessary. Liquid drug comes in a bottle, and its dropper is calibrated for different doses. Mix it with juice, water or some light food. An open bottle should be used within 90 days. It is possible to buy Xanax online or at the ordinary pharmacy.

Inform your doctor about your health condition during the treatment course. Tell if your symptoms are gone or if Xanax doesn’t work for you anymore (for example, as a result of developed tolerance). On the basis of this information the doctor may adjust the treatment to make it more effective.

Side Effects

Sometime Xanax may cause some unpleasant side effects. Keep it in mind in case something of these happens to you:

  • drowsiness
  • sleepiness
  • impaired coordination
  • light-headiness
  • difficulty speaking
  • low blood pressure
  • increased libido

In most cases adverse effects take place when the patient has just started taking Xanax, and stopped after a while. Anyway, if you have any of these symptoms (especially severe ones), tell the doctor.

Contraindications

Be careful and check if consummation of the medication is safe for you. There some contraindications to taking Xanax. Abstain from taking it if you:

  • are younger than 18
  • are breastfeeding/pregnant
  • have allergy to this drug or any of the auxiliary ingredients, or to benzodiazepines in general
  • are taking antifungal medications
  • have narrow-angle glaucoma

Precautions

Be attentive and follow the doctor’s recommendations. Use the medications for as long as you are told to, and not longer. Don’t exceed the dose. Thus you’ll prevent the possible habit-forming Xanax’s effect, and won’t become tolerant as well. Also take into account that Xanax may decrease your ability of operating machinery or safe driving.

Inform the doctor if you have any of these:

  • depression or suicidal thoughts
  • personality disorder
  • alcohol or drug abuse in the past
  • problems with kidney or liver
  • problems with breathing

Those with liver disease, debilitated or elderly patients take lower Xanax doses.

Also the doctor should know if you already take other preparations (nonprescription and prescription), including nutritional supplements or vitamins, and if you smoke (consume nicotine). This is necessary to predict possible interactions between Alprazolam and other medications. Abstain from alcohol during the treatment. Also it is recommended to avoid consuming grapefruit juice/grapefruit.

Sometimes people take the drug without prescription, just to feel well and relaxed, and some of them become addicted. Don’t pattern by them. Take the medicine only if you need treatment.

Don’t stop taking Xanax abruptly. Thus you’ll prevent possible withdrawal symptoms, which may include increased anxiety/depression, aggression, sleeping problems, vision problems, sweating or seizures. Reduce the dosage gradually.
