Alprazolam (marketed in the U.S. as Xanax) is a benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety, tremors, and, in some cases, depression.
Unlike other drugs in the family (Valium, Ativan, etc.) Xanax does have psychotropic effects. It may also have minor negative side-effects such as vivid or disturbing dreams, narcolepsy, or severe withdrawal effects. Alprazolam is typically administered in doses of 0.25mg-2.5mg.
Xanax is a drug that helps to reduce stress if you take it normal quantity but if you take it over this can affect you. Actually, xanax is designed for patient not for every one and it is used as a medicine but people take it as drug
