What is Xanax?
Xanax is a benzodiazepine, a medication usually prescribed for panic disorders or anxiety disorders. Sometimes it’s given to help treat insomnia.
Benzodiazepines alter the GABA released by your brain. GABA is a natural chemical released to help you sleep and calm down. You can find over-the-counter generic GABA pills to treat things like insomnia, but these are not nearly as strong as Xanax. Xanax slows down brain activity but also changes the amount of GABA produced by your body.
When this happens, over time, your brain and body stop producing the amount you need to sleep properly or to calm down when you are anxious, so you have no alternative but to use more Xanax.
Call Atlantic Recovery Center today to learn more about our South Florida Xanax addiction treatment.
How is Xanax Used?
Xanax is prescribed in pill form and is taken to treat:
- Anxiety disorders
- Panic attacks
- Muscle spasms
- Withdrawal symptoms from alcohol
A prescription can help you when your body doesn’t produce the right amount of GABA, making it easier for you to relax or fall asleep. But the more you take it, the more you disrupt GABA’s natural regulation and production.
Most doctors do not recommend using any type of benzodiazepine, including Xanax, for more than two to four weeks at a time. If you continue to use it, you increase that risk of damage to your natural GABA production as well as serious side effects like:
- Problems with motor functions
- Impaired concentration
- Decreased sex drive
- Poor reaction time
- Memory loss
- Increased depression and anxiety
- Social phobia
Atlantic Recovery Center is ready to help you start your South Florida Xanax rehab program.

Is Xanax Addictive?
Xanax is addictive. In fact, there has been an increased need for South Florida Xanax addiction treatment because millions of people are given a prescription without fully appreciating how addictive the substance actually is. Tolerance to Xanax develops quickly, so if you use it to treat something like anxiety or insomnia, you’ll feel even more restless, irritable, and anxious as soon as you stop using it.
These are all part of the withdrawal symptoms that reflect the need for professional help, but if you don’t get that, it’s more likely that you will continue to abuse Xanax even if you don’t need it or don’t have a prescription for it anymore.
