People in the United States take Xanax daily to lessen stress and anxiety. Prescribed for short-term anxiety, depression, and panic disorders, Xanax is increasingly popular. Unfortunately, like other benzos, taking Xanax can cause physical, emotional, and mental side effects even though doctors prescribe it. All drugs have negative side effects, particularly for people with co-occurring disorders like anxiety and bipolar disorder. Xanax addiction treatment is the safest, most effective way to avoid side effects, addiction, and long-term health effects of Xanax.

What Is Xanax?
Xanax is a benzodiazepine that slows down the brain’s processing speed. When Xanax enters the bloodstream, it releases high levels of GABA and dopamine. The brain naturally makes both GABA and dopamine, but diet, stress, co-occurring disorders, and unprocessed trauma can all affect someone’s natural GABA and dopamine production.
Xanax slows down the nervous system and promotes calm, helping someone sleep and avoid anxiety or panic attacks. Unfortunately, when a substance like Xanax provides the brain with high levels of chemicals it naturally makes, it will stop producing them on its own. Taking Xanax long-term will cause low natural levels of both chemicals, causing Xanax dependence and addiction.
Common Side Effects of Xanax
The more someone takes Xanax, they may need to feel the same effects. When the brain and body become dependent on Xanax, a person craves more Xanax. This often leads to drug mixing or drinking while on Xanax. Unfortunately, the benefits of Xanax often lead people to take more or take medication for longer than prescribed. The most common signs of Xanax abuse and addiction include:
- Memory loss
- Trouble understanding language
- Difficulty following conversations
- Loss of language skills and reading comprehension
Long-term Xanax use can cause a person’s perception of reality to change. This can be alarming and dangerous. Someone will have trouble perceiving objects in space. Medical intervention is necessary for those experiencing the effects of long-term Xanax use. During withdrawal, someone may experience irrational thoughts and feel they cannot survive without more Xanax. This is the brain’s natural reaction to chemical dependence.

If you or someone you love is taking Xanax, do not quit cold turkey. Stopping Xanax cold turkey will cause a “rebound” effect. Anxiety and insomnia will worsen, making it especially hard to stop taking Xanax without medical intervention. Medically-assisted detox can help clients safely detox, reduce the risk of relapse, and prevent Xanax overdose.
