When an individual abruptly stops use of Xanax then they might start experiencing withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are very similar to alcohol withdrawal. The intensity of the symptoms varies from individual to individual based on the longevity and amount of intake. The manner in which dosage is reduced also takes a part in how severe the symptoms will be.
Withdrawal symptoms of Xanax addiction may include:
Xanax the brand name of a prescription medication classified as a benzodiazepine. This is prescribed to patients who suffer from anxiety and panic disorders. Xanax stifles the inhibitory receptor in the brain which curbs abnormal excitement. People who take Xanax in large quantities or use it for prolong periods of time can become addicted. Note that it is possible to be hooked on Xanax even if you are only using it as prescribed by your doctor.
The drug is a depressant of the central nervous system. Therefore, the effects of abuse are mostly on the brain functions.
Some of the effects include:
Sometimes, with excessive and long time use, some people also start suffering from short term memory loss. Severe sedation can also be experienced by taking in large amounts of xanax, this sedation can last for a few days.
Perhaps one of the most important factors to consider is the overall cost of the substance abuse treatment. Some facilities may accept your healthcare insurance or offer special payment plans. Just like anything else, you need to compare prices and services. It is possible to find a facility which costs less than another but still provides a high level of quality care.
