Xanax Addiction Treatment
Treating Xanax Addiction
Xanax is used to treat anxiety and panic disorders as well as clinical depression. The chemicals inside cause its users to feel calm.
Studies show that reducing too much stress can actually cause negative effects on people. A healthy dose of stress is necessary for motivation; however, on the other hand, stress causes people to abuse other substances in order to reduce it.
Benzodiazepines, also known as benzos, are made up of similar chemicals as Xanax that cause people to become sluggish. Benzos work well for patients who need a muscle-relaxer; however, when they are withdrawn from the body, they cause muscle spasms, cramps, seizures, elevated blood pressure and increased heart rates. Though benzos have similar ingredients to Xanax, its withdrawal symptoms are much worse. Benzo users who do not want to experience withdrawal symptoms, sometime overuse the drug and cause even worse effects on their body, including heart attack, respiratory problems, coma and even death.
Recognizing The Signs of Xanax Abuse
Xanax may cause dizziness, the inability to concentrate, drowsiness, difficulty experiencing pleasure, a loss of interest in life, an increase in anxiety or depression, heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure.
