Xanax is a tranquilizer (anxiogenic medication) with antidepressant, hypnotic, and anticoagulant action. The principle active ingredient is the derivative of triazole-benzodiazepine. For the treatment of depressive conditions and other mental disorders, Xanax pills containing 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, 1 mg, 2 mg or 3 mg of the active substance may be prescribed.
Xanax inhibits spinal reflexes, limbic system, thalamus and hypothalamus in poly synaptic form. Anxiety and emotional stress diminish under its influence, and a sense of anxiety and fear is diminished. Xanax causes relaxation of the muscles and has a gently hypnotic effect. Patients fall asleep quicker while taking Xanax, the length of the sleep increases, and the number of nocturnal awakenings decreases.
This medication is prescribed for neurotic and neurosis-like disorders in which the patient has an anxiety feeling. Alprazolam and analogs are effective in treating reactive depressive disorders, including those that have developed against somatic disease backgrounds. In the case of panic disorders; insomnia; abstinence syndrome (including alcohol and drug dependence); senile and essential tremors, this medicine is also indicated.
A number of people around the world use Xanax to relieve anxiety. Xanax gained its success due to the ability to overcome the anxiety problem within two or three hours. Now, it's one of the doctor's main medications prescribed to cure anxiety. Generalized anxiety disorder is one of the commonly known anxiety disorders which is now common among many people. One of the major cures for this is the Xanax medication which helps to heal it very easily and also keeps the levels of anxiety in check.
As we all know the Xanax's half-life period is very short and it only lasts for about 4-5 hours in the blood after consumption. If it is considered on higher dosage, then after ingestion the medication may last for around 6-7 hours. Similarly, after consumption, the effects are immediately felt within the next two hours. If depression or drowsiness has any adverse effects, you can take this medicine. But this is also not recommended for regular consumption, as it can cause some addiction.
