Xanax Addiction

Xanax, also known by its name “Alprazolam,” calms the brain and central nervous system. As such, it’s often prescribed to treat anxiety, panic disorders, and the like. However, it is habit forming and, due to how it makes people feel, it’s all too easy to become addicted. If you or someone that you love is struggling with Xanax, it is possible to get help. Here at Arision, we have helped many to not just treat their Xanax addiction, but to treat the underlying issues that cause the addiction. 

Physical Symptoms of Xanax Addiction 


The side effects of Xanax abuse appear rather quickly. They can also worsen over time. Initially, Xanax abuse can lead to: 

  • Nausea
  • Breathing problems
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Weight fluctuation
  • Drowsiness 

With continued abuse, Xanax addiction can cause: 

  • Seizures
  • Violent behavior
  • Mania
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Hallucinations
  • Suicidal ideation 

There is nothing to be gained by waiting to receive help for Xanax struggles. If you recognize these symptoms in yourself or someone in your life, it’s worth it to reach out. 

Behavioral Symptoms of Xanax Addiction 


Xanax addiction doesn’t just affect the way a person feels, it can negatively influence the way they act as well. For example, Xanax addiction can lead to behavioral changes such as: 

  • Faulty memory
  • Loss of ambition 
  • Inability to concentrate, to focus 
  • Confusion 
  • Withdrawing from activities you had previously enjoyed
  • Avoiding family and friends. 
  • Inability to stop or slow Xanax use.
