Safe Xanax withdrawal is Possible with our program

XANAX is a short-acting drug in the benzodiazepine class of medications and is one of the most prescribed medications in the world today. XANAX reaches it peak level in the body within 1-2 hours, but this short half-life also contributes to episodes of breakthrough anxiety as the body reaches tolerance to the drug.

XANAX also alters the sleep architecture by reducing the amounts of restorative Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep and increasing the non-restorative sleep patterns. This can result in daytime drowsiness and poor cognitive function. XANAX also depresses the tone of respiratory muscles, leading to sleep apnea.

Xanax has a rapid onset of action on the nervous system, which contributes to the high rate of addiction and increased anxiety as tolerance to the drug is reached -  requiring higher doses to achieve the calming effects. Xanax can cause lung suppression when combined with alcohol, and if mixed with Kava, a semi-comatose state can occur.  Due to the medical danger of a rapid titration or abrupt cessation, a gradual taper is recommended to allow the GABA receptors the chance to readjust between dose reductions. 

In a United States physician survey, 84% of doctors reported XANAX as being extremely problematic in terms of the severity and prolonged nature of the benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome after discontinuation. Therefore, anyone taking XANAX should discontinue through slow and gradual dose reduction.

Xanax can cause a multitude of debilitating Xanax withdrawal symptoms. A slow titration is key to a successful Xanax withdrawal taper, as is eliminating interaction items and supporting your body.

What is Xanax

(Alprazolam, Niravam, Xanor, Kalma, Tafil, Alprox, Frontal)

Xanax (Alprazolam) is a potent short-acting benzodiazepine that possesses anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), sedative, hypnotic, anticonvulsant and amnestic (loss of memory) properties. Xanax 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 Xanax to produce the calming effect. Physical dependence commonly occurs as a result of using Xanax and is characterized by a withdrawal and rebound symptoms thus necessitate a gradual reduction in dosage to minimize any withdrawal symptoms.

Xanax Withdrawal can cause a multitude of debilitating symptoms. A slow titration is key to a successful benzodiazepine taper, as is eliminating interaction items.
