I've always managed to use it "as needed" but my as my access to it became more consistent, I began using it during periods of mid-level anxiety, when before I would not have.
This has led to daily use, increased dosage, a reliance on it for social situations, physical and mental dependency. This has snowballed within the past 6 months. I typically take about. I need to stop but just the idea make me anxious.
I'm going to see a doctor but not for about 10 days and I'd like some advice? Alprazolam tablets contain the active ingredient alprazolam, which is a type of medicine called a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines are used for their sedative and anxiety-relieving effects. Benzodiazepines work by acting on receptors in the brain called GABA receptors. This causes the release of a neurotransmitter called GABA gamma amino butyric acid in the brain.
Neurotransmitters are chemicals that are stored in nerve cells in the brain and nervous system. They are involved in transmitting messages between the nerve cells. GABA is a neurotransmitter that acts as a natural 'nerve-calming' agent. It helps keep the nerve activity in the brain in balance, and is involved in inducing sleepiness, reducing anxiety and relaxing muscles. Alprazolam increases the activity of GABA in the brain and therefore increases its calming effect.
This helps decrease anxiety and also causes drowsiness and relaxation of muscles. Alprazolam is used for the treatment of severe anxiety, including anxiety associated with depression. It should only be used when the disorder is severe, disabling or subjecting the individual to extreme distress. It is only suitable for short-term use, as the medicine has a high potential for dependence and addiction.
Alprazolam remains active in the body for many hours and, as a result, any drowsiness it causes may last into the next day.

Wyatt Wednesday, March 15th, I have a prescription for Alprazolam.
First time I took on tablet I felt a small reaction in my body. It took the edge off a little bit, but not enough. So the next time I took 2 pills 1mg. That helped and I could tell it made a differnce.
But today I had a major blow up with my business partner which happens to be my wife. We have had a build up of issues over the last several years and today I pretty much lost it and had a total panic attack. My hands started tingling, my feet went numb, I had a shortness of breath if I tried to talk to anyone right after that and my blood pressure went through the roof.
So I took 3 pills 1. It defitely helped and I dont need to take any more. Is this a safe dosage though when and if another panic attack happens like that. Iv never had one that bad before. Shirley how much xanax can you take safetly and then drink a glass of wine???

Thanks, Wayne Amie Can u take xanax, Mobic. I suggest that you speak with your doctor about the interaction of these medications. Robert Wednesday, March 29th, I have started today taking. At night and morning butat 12 noon I feel like it is not working.
Should I call my doctor to up it to 3 times a day. I felt drowsy a little hissing in my ears, the muscles in my face felt slack. But no medication worked for about 9 months. Then my doctor prescribed alprazolam and half a hour symptoms were gone, That was with 1. But as I try to lower the dosage more the symptoms start to come back. It's so odd like being a little drunk. And the effect are only in my head nowhere else in my body. The other symptom is my jaw muscles vibrate at high speed like an electric motor I can feel it when my teeth touch.
I feel completely normal on the alprazolam but it would be nice to be able to be off alprazolam and feel normal. Long-term use causes adaptive changes in the benzodiazepine receptors, making them less sensitive to stimulation and thus making the drugs less potent. Recurrence of symptoms such as anxiety may simply indicate that the drug was having its expected anti-anxiety effect and that, in the absence of the drug, the symptom has returned to pretreatment levels.
If the symptoms are more severe or frequent, the person may be experiencing a rebound effect due to the removal of the drug. Either of these can occur without the person actually being drug-dependent. This medication may cause withdrawal symptoms upon abrupt withdrawal or rapid tapering, which in some cases have been known to cause seizures, as well as marked delirium similar to that produced by the anticholinergic tropane alkaloids of Datura scopolamine and atropine.
To some degree, these older benzodiazepines are self-tapering. Factors that determine the risk of psychological dependence or physical dependence and the severity of the benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms during dose reduction of alprazolam include: Most commercial immunoassays for the benzodiazepine class of drugs cross-react with alprazolam, but confirmation and quantitation is usually performed using chromatographic techniques.
Alprazolam is classed as a high-potency triazolobenzodiazepine: As a benzodiazepine, alprazolam produces a variety of therapeutic and adverse effects by binding to the benzodiazepine receptor site on the GABAA receptor and modulating its function; GABA receptor s are the most prolific inhibitory receptor within the brain.
The GABA chemical and receptor system mediates inhibitory or calming effects of alprazolam on the nervous system. Should any of the above events occur, alprazolam should be discontinued. Isolated published reports involving small numbers of patients have suggested that patients who have borderline personality disorder , a prior history of violent or aggressive behavior, or alcohol or substance abuse may be at risk for such events.
Instances of irritability, hostility, and intrusive thoughts have been reported during discontinuation of alprazolam in patients with posttraumatic stress disorder. The majority of these reactions were reported through the medical event voluntary reporting system. Because of the spontaneous nature of the reporting of medical events and the lack of controls, a causal relationship to the use of XANAX cannot be readily determined. The benzodiazepines, including alprazolam, produce additive CNS depressant effects when co-administered with other psychotropic medications, anticonvulsants, antihistaminics, ethanol and other drugs which themselves produce CNS depression.
Patients who receive alprazolam and digoxin should therefore be monitored for signs and symptoms related to digoxin toxicity. The clinical significance of these changes is unknown. Drugs and other substances demonstrated to be CYP 3A inhibitors on the basis of clinical studies involving benzodiazepines metabolized similarly to alprazolam or on the basis of in vitro studies with alprazolam or other benzodiazepines caution is recommended during coadministration with alprazolam Available data from clinical studies of benzodiazepines other than alprazolam suggest a possible drug interaction with alprazolam for the following: Data from in vitro studies of alprazolam suggest a possible drug interaction with alprazolam for the following: Data from in vitro studies of benzodiazepines other than alprazolam suggest a possible drug interaction for the following: The symptoms can range from mild dysphoria and insomnia to a major syndrome that may include abdominal and muscle cramps, vomiting, sweating, tremors and convulsions.
Distinguishing between withdrawal emergent signs and symptoms and the recurrence of illness is often difficult in patients undergoing dose reduction. The long term strategy for treatment of these phenomena will vary with their cause and the therapeutic goal. When necessary, immediate management of withdrawal symptoms requires re-institution of treatment at doses of XANAX sufficient to suppress symptoms.
There have been reports of failure of other benzodiazepines to fully suppress these withdrawal symptoms. These failures have been attributed to incomplete cross-tolerance but may also reflect the use of an inadequate dosing regimen of the substituted benzodiazepine or the effects of concomitant medications. While it is difficult to distinguish withdrawal and recurrence for certain patients, the time course and the nature of the symptoms may be helpful.
A withdrawal syndrome typically includes the occurrence of new symptoms, tends to appear toward the end of taper or shortly after discontinuation, and will decrease with time. In recurring panic disorder, symptoms similar to those observed before treatment may recur either early or late, and they will persist.
While the severity and incidence of withdrawal phenomena appear to be related to dose and duration of treatment, withdrawal symptoms, including seizures, have been reported after only brief therapy with XANAX at doses within the recommended range for the treatment of anxiety eg, 0.
Signs and symptoms of withdrawal are often more prominent after rapid decrease of dosage or abrupt discontinuance. Patients, especially individuals with a history of seizures or epilepsy , should not be abruptly discontinued from any CNS depressant agent, including XANAX. Some patients have experienced considerable difficulty in tapering and discontinuing from XANAX, especially those receiving higher doses for extended periods. As with all anxiolytics, repeat prescriptions should be limited to those who are under medical supervision.
