Xanor Withdrawal and Tapering Help

Benzodiazepines are one of the most widely prescribed medications in the U.S, according to Medical News Today. Our NonProfit has been helping people withdraw safely for over 14 Years. Contact the Prescription Drug Experts for help!

Xanor (Alprazolam) was first released 1976 and became a blockbuster drug in the United States. Xanor has a fast onset of action with 90% of the peak effect achieved within the first hour. The time-released formation reaches full peak effect in approximately 1-1/2 hours. This short action also contributes to issues of tolerance, where the calming effect diminishes within shorter periods of time. For some, tolerance can occur within a couple of days, necessitating a dosage increase. Rapid withdrawal of Xanor can lead to the under activity of GABA which in turn causes the nervous system to become hyper-excited. Insomnia and extreme anxiety are common during a rapid Xanor Withdrawal.  An abrupt or rapid withdrawal can be life-threatening due to the seizure and high blood pressure risk. Xanor must be tapered slowly to minimize withdrawal symptoms. Contact Us if you need help tapering Xanor or have questions.

Xanor (alprazolam) history and info

In the late 1960s Xanax (Xanor) was created to be a sleep aid with muscle relaxant qualities, but when Dr. David Sheehan became involved Upjohn Pharmaceuticals presented the initial Xanax (Xanor) drug application to the FDA as an antidepressant to compete against Tricyclic Antidepressants, stating that Xanax (Xanor) was a safer and less toxic drug. The FDA initially approved the application, then changed their minds and told Upjohn they had to release Xanax (Xanor) as an anti-anxiety medication versus an antidepressant. Xanax (Xanor) was released in 1981and within two years became a blockbuster drug.

Xanor has a fast onset of action, reaching peak blood levels in 1.5 hours. Xanor is metabolized very rapidly versus other benzodiazepines therefore its effects are felt but also diminish quickly. This short half-life causes a rapid onset of tolerance, where the body calls for higher doses of the drug in an attempt to achieve a calm state.
