Experts in Prescription Drug Withdrawal
Alprazolam withdrawal can be done simply and safely
ALPRAZOLAM is a short-acting benzodiazepine with a fast onset of action. 90% of the peak benefits are reached within the first hour, which contributes to the high rate of addiction and breakthrough anxiety as tolerance to the drug occurs.
ALPRAZOLAM binds to GABA (gamma-amino-butyric acid), which is the most common and calming neurotransmitterin the body that controls the action of epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine to prevent stress and regulates excitability. Paradoxical reactions to ALPRAZOLAM can include aggression, rage, hostility, tremors, twitching, agitation, mania, hyperactivity and restlessness. Regular use of ALPRAZOLAM causes adaptive changes to the GABA receptors, making them less sensitive and unable to control excitability in the nervous system.
ALPRAZOLAM, like other benzodiazepines can cause physical dependence and severe withdrawal symptoms. Rapid reduction of ALPRAZOLAM is not recommended due to the seizure risk and increased blood pressure potential. A gradual taper performed over months can minimize symptoms.
ALPRAZOLAM is the most prescribed benzodiazepine in the United States.

What is Alprazolam
(Xanax, Niravam, Xanor, Kalma, Tafil, Alprox, Frontal)
Alprazolam (Xanax) is a potent short-acting benzodiazepine that possesses anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), sedative, hypnotic, anticonvulsant and amnestic (loss of memory) properties. Alprazolam is the most misused benzodiazepine in the United States. Tolerance to the therapeutic effects can occur within a short period of time, and long term use is greater than 10-14 days, necessitating higher levels of Alprazolam to produce the calming effect. Physical dependence commonly occurs as a result of using Alprazolam and is characterized by withdrawal and rebound symptoms that necessitate a gradual reduction in dosage to minimize any withdrawal symptoms.
