Xanax® (alprazolam) is a prescription medication licensed to treat generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder in adults. It comes in tablet form and is available in four different strengths, ranging from 0.25 mg to 2 mg.
Side effects are possible with this drug, even with the lowest strength, 0.25 mg Xanax. Side effects may include fatigue and tiredness, coordination problems, drowsiness, and increased appetite.
