What is Xanax?
Xanax is categorized as a benzodiazepine drug, basically acting as a sedative that depresses the central nervous system. It is usually prescribed for individuals with anxiety disorders. What makes it so popular is its very fast-acting onset, taking effect in as quickly as one hour after intake and lasting for around six hours.
On the other hand, the potential for addiction is increased if it is not used as directed by a doctor. This abuse will progress to an increase in tolerance and dependence over time.
Xanax goes by different names:
- Niravam is an orally disintegrating form of the drug, which means that you can dissolve it on your tongue instead of having to swallow it with water.
Its street names are:
- Handlebars or simply Bars

Why Treatment for Xanax Addiction is Imperative
The physical, mental and behavioral signs and symptoms above should be reasons enough to subject yourself or your loved one to Xanax addiction treatment ASAP. To add to the long list, Xanax is made even more dangerous when taken with other depressant drugs or alcohol, which is what most abusers often do. This deadly duo leads to fatal injuries, coma and ultimately death. Another important note is that you should never attempt to go ‘cold turkey’ as the unpleasantness of the withdrawal effects can verge on the agonizing, such as seizures. Xanax withdrawal treatment under medical supervision is the safest path to take.
