Many of us have been affected by some form of anxiety in our lives, which can lead to other symptoms, such as panic attacks. Oftentimes, when it all becomes too much to handle, medical advice is sought in the hope of tempering what can become a constant feeling of dread, waiting for the next attack to arise and disrupt your day.

Xanax is a fast-acting benzodiazepine that is used to treat anxiety disorder. It is, in fact, the most prescribed psychiatric medication in the United States and when used correctly is highly effective. However, it is also highly addictive due to its ability to become somewhat of a crutch with its grasp capable of causing addiction in a short period of time, just a matter of weeks.

One of the first signs of addiction is tolerance, which results in taking higher and higher doses to achieve the desired effect. Withdrawing from Xanax is a mind game that most cannot handle alone.

The Dawn Thailand drug rehab provides effective treatment to withdraw and recover from a Xanax addiction. By combining psychotherapy, with proven holistic treatment that is given by highly-trained professionals, our programme is tailored to successfully overcome dependence.

The Dawn is Asia’s leading addiction rehab and mental health retreat that focuses on healing on all levels.

Signs and Symptoms of Xanax Addiction

Have you found that since taking Xanax you are extremely tired, lacking in energy and/or interest to even fulfill your usual daily commitments, whether relating to work, family or friends?

There are numerous signs that indicate an addiction to Xanax, some of which include:

  • Sleeping for long periods of time
  • Delirium
  • Impaired coordination
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Nausea and/or vomiting

Are you letting others down? Have you started to call in sick to work? Do you no longer partake in activities that used to interest you? These are all signs that Xanax has taken a hold of your life.

Effects and Consequences of Xanax Abuse

It doesn’t take long to become addicted to Xanax, which is why it is usually only prescribed for a short period of time (2-6 weeks). When combined with alcohol or other drugs it poses an even greater threat with the possibility of fatality due to the strain put upon your respiratory system.

Prolonged use of Xanax can result in several negative factors to your mental wellbeing as well:

  • Aggression
  • Depression
  • Psychosis

Xanax Withdrawal Symptoms

It is always recommended to taper Xanax use and be monitored by a qualified medical detox team as opposed to going cold turkey and withdrawing abruptly.

The side-effects from withdrawal can be quite overwhelming and unless assisted by correct care can cause relapse.

Prolonged use of Xanax can result in several negative factors to your mental wellbeing as well:

Withdrawal symptoms can occur within 1-4 days

Many factors must be taken into account when considering how Xanax withdrawal affects each individual; how long you have been taking it, genetics, age and whether it has been mixed with alcohol or drugs. In addition, prior addiction habits, psychological well-being and underlying health issues must all be considered.
