Xanax® (alprazolam) is a prescription medicine commonly used for the treatment of panic disorder or anxiety. It comes in tablet form and is available in four different strengths, ranging from 0.25 mg to 2 mg. As part of a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, Xanax affects the body by relaxing the muscles, reducing anxiety, and impairing short-term memory. While most people tolerate the medication well, potential side effects include drowsiness, fatigue, and coordination problems.
