Xanax, while not a central nervous system depressant, it is a “downer” meaning it provides a relaxing feeling and helps calm the body and mind, which is what makes it so incredibly effective for anxiety disorders and panic attacks. This is also one of the factors that make people use the medication to the point of dependence, since when people stop taking it they will often experience a more severe “rebound” of the symptoms that they were initially taking Xanax to manage. Here are some of the primary ways that Xanax can affect the user.

Blue Xanax Addiction
Blue Xanax has a very high potential for addiction, particularly because of the effects it imparts and the severity of the withdrawal symptoms once a dependence has been established. When it is time for the individual to diminish their dose, or detox entirely, withdrawals can be more severe with Xanax than with other benzodiazepines, as well as more dangerous. Since withdrawals from Xanax can happen after only taking the drug for a week, things can get very serious very quickly.
If you or someone close to you may be experiencing dependence on, or addiction to blue Xanax, the detox process can be long and difficult, and very emotionally and physically taxing. By reaching out to your support system, and working with an experienced local professional treatment center, the individual seeking recovery can get the attention they need. With treatment plans tailored to the patient, one can rest assured knowing that they are on solid sobriety footing upon resuming the demands of daily life.
