Anxiety Home > Xanex

Were you looking for information about Xanax? Xanex is a common misspelling of Xanax.
 
Xanax® (alprazolam) is a medication licensed for the treatment of panic disorder and anxiety. The drug has several effects on the body, including relaxing muscles, causing sleepiness, and reducing anxiety. Xanax tablets, which are available by prescription, come in four different strengths and are generally taken two or three times a day.
 
A few of the factors that can affect the dose of Xanax your healthcare provider recommends include the medical condition being treated, your age, other medications you may be taking, and other medical conditions you may have. Side effects of the drug may include coordination problems, weight gain, and fatigue. This medication is not right for everyone. For example, people with liver disease, glaucoma, depression, or a history of drug or alcohol abuse may not be able to safely take Xanax.
