What Is Xanax?
Xanax is a potent drug used to treat anxiety and panic disorders. The medication increases the GABA activity in the brain, which creates a sense of calm and peace. GABA is a neurotransmitter produced in the human brain that keeps anxiety and other unpleasant emotions in check.
During the first few days of taking the medication, individuals may feel sleepy and uncoordinated. The body should adjust to the drug, and the initial effects of sluggishness will disappear. People who use Xanax for a prolonged period of time may develop tolerance for the drug and require increased dosage in order to experience the same effect.
The Dangers and Symptoms of Xanax Abuse
Xanax has the potential for abuse and should be used only as prescribed by a physician. It is important to note that Xanax is a potent central nervous system depressant and side effects should be closely monitored. Medical attention is crucial for individuals experiencing the following effects:
- Dry mouth
- Increased salivation
- Shortness of breath
- Severe skin rash
- Speech impairment
- Changes in sex drive
- Suicide thoughts, etc.
Xanax Withdrawal Symptoms
Abrupt medication withdrawal is not recommended, as it may cause a great deal of pain and discomfort and result in harmful consequences. Since Xanax tends to slow brain activity, sudden cessation of the drug may quickly cause a rebound effect and start the brain racing out of control. Xanax withdrawal symptoms include:
- Uncontrollable shaking
- Blurred vision
- Increased sensitivity to light and noise
- Difficulty concentrating
