Were you looking for information about Xanax? Zanex is a common misspelling of Xanax.
Xanax® (alprazolam) is a medication that is prescribed for the treatment of panic disorder and anxiety in adults. It can help reduce anxiety, stop seizures, and relax muscles by enhancing the effects of a naturally calming chemical in the brain. On occasion, the medicine may also be used in an "off-label" fashion for the treatment of conditions other than those mentioned here (for example, insomnia). Xanax comes in tablet form and is available in a variety of strengths.
A few of the more common side effects that have been reported with Xanax include coordination problems, fatigue, and drowsiness. Symptoms of an overdose can include confusion, slow reflexes, and even loss of life. This medication is not appropriate for everyone. For example, people with glaucoma, liver or kidney disease, or certain allergies may not be able to safely take Xanax.
