Xanax Side Effects

Xanax is a popular medication that helps you to relax and reduces your anxiety. If you are stressed or anxious, all you’d have to do is take a Xanax tablet. With that, all your cares melt away, and you can relax. Taking Xanax makes it easy to make it through whatever trials come your way. However, Xanax side effects can be dangerous, or even deadly, if you mishandle your medication. If you need a Xanax addiction treatment center in Orange County, Renaissance Recovery could be the answer. 

How Does Xanax Work? 

When you begin taking Xanax, the medication attaches itself to your brain’s receptors and depresses your central nervous center. That brings the overwhelming rush of calm that makes you feel better. In other words, the depressing of your nervous system prevents your feelings of panic or racing thoughts. 

If you take the medication as the doctor recommends, this is good. However, if you feel like you need to take Xanax every time you’re stressed out, you may end up using more medication than you mean to. In turn, that can lead to dependency and addiction. Both of these factors can lead to serious side effects.

Addiction as One of the Xanax Side Effects

Xanax addiction sneaks up on you. For instance, if you take Xanax as prescribed, you may decide you don’t ever want to come off it. Therefore, you stay on it for a few months or even a few years. Then, when you finally do go off of it, you experience moderate or perhaps even severe withdrawals. Withdrawal is a major red flag that you should seek treatment at a Xanax addiction treatment center. 

Maybe you don’t realize you’re addicted to Xanax. However, if you’ve had health problems or financial problems due to Xanax, you may have an addiction. Another signal that you may be addicted to Xanax is if you’ve taken so much Xanax that your doctor will not prescribe you anymore. If this happens, you may want to find another source to get Xanax. 

Physical and Mental Xanax Side Effects

Because taking Xanax affects the brain, several mental side effects go along with taking Xanax. For instance, when you take Xanax, you may be forgetful. Forgetfulness can be especially dangerous. This danger is because you can end up overdosing on Xanax because you forgot you’ve already taken a Xanax, and you take another one. Alternatively, perhaps you forget you’ve taken Xanax and drink a glass of wine. Combining alcohol and Xanax can lead to breathing problems. 

Other mental Xanax side effects can include: 

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Drowsiness or sleepiness
  • Feeling discouraged

There are a variety of physical side effects of Xanax. These can range from unsteadiness or trembling, to clumsiness, or even having trouble performing everyday tasks.
