Xanax is a benzodiazepine medication that is prescribed to treat anxiety and panic attacks. People can develop physical dependence and addiction even when taken properly if they use it for a long time. If a person has become physically dependent on Xanax, they may experience severe withdrawal symptoms if they quit cold turkey.
Xanax withdrawal symptoms differ from person to person. Physical and psychological problems are possible during withdrawal. Headaches, sleeplessness, tremors, muscle spasms, sweating, hyperventilation, and/or seizures are some of the physical symptoms. Depression, anxiety, difficulties concentrating, delirium, hallucinations, and panic attacks are examples of psychological symptoms.
Regardless of how you became physically reliant on Xanax, you may need expert assistance to quit safely and manage a withdrawal syndrome that can be both physically and mentally unpleasant. Medically-assisted detox is very important because withdrawal symptoms are sometimes life-threatening, in the case of seizures. Don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Recovery is always possible, we can help you achieve a life of sobriety.
