Alprazolam Drug Information

Alprazolam (Xanax®) is a drug approved for the treatment of panic disorder and anxiety attacks. It works primarily by enhancing the effects of a naturally occurring chemical in the brain. However, it also has other effects and can cause sleepiness and stop seizures, among other things. The medicine comes in tablet form and is typically taken two to three times a day.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with alprazolam, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. It is not appropriate for people with certain conditions and can interact with other medications, so giving your healthcare provider your complete medical history will help ensure alprazolam is right for you.
