What is Xanax Addiction in NJ?

Xanax, or the generic name Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine commonly prescribed for treating anxiety and panic disorders. When prescribed as a central nervous system depressant, Alprazolam or Xanax reduces anxiety and panic attacks. The drug enhances the brain’s neurotransmitter cells, relaxing and calming patients to give them positive feelings. Some people may begin taking the medication for a mental health disorder as prescribed, whether as needed, or others might take it daily; taking any medication long-term can increase the risk of developing an addiction. Increasing the dosage of Xanax consumption also leads to dependency and addiction.
