It’s just that stress and everything that comes with it have become such an integral part of our lives, we seem to roll with everything and not even notice our troubles anymore. However, this cannot last forever, since anxiety and stress issues have an extremely debilitating effects on our bodies and minds, and, at a certain point, we’re bound to lose control and see our lives are not as good as they used to be because of this problem.
In this article we will examine one of the most popular ways to get rid of stress and anxiety for good – it’s called Xanax and, in case you haven’t hear about it, it is one of the most prominent anti-anxiety drugs in history. We are sure you must have heard about it, but you probably don’t know enough to consult your doctor and ask for a prescription, and this article is here to help with that.
Firstly, let’s say a bit about the basics of Xanax, or Alprazola, which is its generic name. It is a short-acting, anxiolytic, psychoactive drug of the benzodiazepine class. Now, there’s a handful. What does this all mean? Anxiolytic means the drug is meant to relieve anxiety, short-acting implies it becomes effective shortly after you take it (which is very good), psychoactive means it alters the state of your mind (for the better), and the benzodiazepine class of drugs we mentioned is the class primarily used to treat issues such as panic, anxiety, and other conditions related to stress.
In general, Xanax also has sedative, hypnotic, anticonvulsant and amnestic properties, and is also a muscle relaxant, which makes it truly ideal for the treatment of any condition associated with panic, seizures or onsets of anxiety. It is effective even in the most severe cases.
Sure enough, by saying all this you must be aware of the fact that Xanax is a prescription-only drug and that its use must be strictly controlled by your doctor. You can obtain it by seeing your physician, and undergoing a complete medical examination, after which you will be asked to see a psychiatrist, who will then prescribe the drug to you after a conversation about your issue. All this might sound scary, but it isn’t. It is just a necessary procedure for one to obtain the medication safely and use it cautiously. You need to make sure never to exceed the prescribed dosage, as Xanax is a powerful drug that may damage your body if you abuse it.
Finally, you should also know something about the most common side effects of Xanax. It could cause dependence and withdrawal symptoms, along with a change in your libido, disinhibition, dry mouth, urinary retention, and so on.
