Xanax Addiction Treatment

Xanax Addiction is widespread! The more common a drug becomes the greater chance it has at becoming abused by the general public. Xanax is a commonly prescribed short-term drug used to treat severe anxiety and panic disorders, though due to its now common-nature it has found its way into the recreational drug community. The possibility of becoming a Xanax Addict is extremely high, especially after only 2 months of use, as tolerance to the drug builds over this period of time and the efficacy of the drug begins to wear off at the original dose.

A Xanax Addiction is very serious business; there are severe reactions and withdrawal symptoms associated with the sudden discontinuation of this drug, often requiring immediate medical intervention to prevent any severe or long-term medical problems. Common withdrawal symptoms associated with a Xanax Addict stopping use include possible tachycardia (rapid & random heartbeat), depression, obsessive compulsive disorder symptoms, dry-mouth and chapped lips. Other associated withdrawal symptoms can include worsened anxiety, severe loss of appetite, dizziness, insomnia and even tremors of the body.

Xanax Addiction Treatment

Living with a Xanax Addiction can not only cost you a lot of money but it can also cost you your life. It isn’t uncommon for habitual Xanax users to increase their dosage repeatedly to the point of overdosing. More often than not Xanax Addicts will combine multiple other drugs along with their normal Xanax and find themselves in the emergency room. Severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhea along with hallucinations and memory loss aren’t unheard of for repeated drug abusers. When taking Xanax for extended periods of time, the body builds up a tolerance to the drug and will eventually need the drug to sustain a normal function.

After only 8 to 9 weeks, the body will experience withdrawal symptoms from discontinuation of the drug. If a Xanax Addict becomes too addicted, he or she will commonly increase the dosage which will in turn worsen the withdrawal symptoms and increase the likely-hood of an overdose. An overdose from a Xanax Addiction can range anywhere from mild to severe, including death. An overdose victim can expect to experience Somnolence, the inability to stay awake, mental confusion and hypotension as well as hypoventilation, depression of the respiratory system.

If the Xanax Addict has taken excessively large doses of the drug, it is possible an overdose can lapse him or her into a coma. If Xanax has been combined with multiple other drugs that have triggered the overdose, the chances of having a fatal overdose increase greatly. There are a variety of ways abusers will administer the drug, most common is in the natural pill form the drug is sold as. Xanax Addicts have been known to crush the drug and mix it with a liquid prior to injecting into their veins. The dangers posed by such an act include severe damage to the arteries, as Xanax does not fully dissolve in water as other drugs do. It is important to seek immediate medical help to treat a Xanax Addiction.
