Xanax® (alprazolam) is a medication often prescribed for the treatment of panic disorder and anxiety. It belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, which work by enhancing the effects of a naturally occurring chemical in the brain (gamma-aminobutyric acid). Xanax comes in tablet form and is available in several strengths, ranging from 0.25 to 2 mg. Before taking this medicine, you should tell your healthcare provider if you have liver disease, lung problems, or a history of alcohol or drug abuse.
