XANAX is an anxiety medication that is part of a broader group of medicine known as benzodiazepines. It is commonly known as Xanax but is also marketed under other names including Alprax, Alzam, Apo-Alpraz, Novo-Alprazol, Niravam Xanor and Zolam (to name but a few). This active ingredient was originally patented by Pfizer pharmaceuticals as a new anxiety medication back in the 1970’s, and was extremely successful in the years after its launch in the USA.
After the patent expired, because all the research and development work had been done, other pharmaceutical companies were able to copy and market their own brands of alprazolam anxiety medication at a fraction of the cost. The initial research and development costs of any new drug can be in the billions, and this expense is usually factored in when the product goes to market.
This anxiety medication is usually prescribed as a short-term treatment for panic disorder, anxiety disorder, and other conditions that may have been caused by or been linked to anxiety. Nowadays, alprazolam anxiety medication is one of the most prescribed (and abused) medicines on the planet!
how to Take Alprazolam Tablets
Alprazolam should be taken orally and may be consumed with or without food, depending on the dosage being taken. For best results, it is advised for users to consume this anxiety medication after eating a light meal.
If you have alprazolam 2 mg tablets, this may be broken into two or four smaller dosages as required. The tablets should then be swallowed whole with a glass of water. They should not be crushed or chewed as this will result in a bitter taste and can lead to the medication being more potent.
When you buy alprazolam in the UK, it is important to follow the dosage and usage guidelines, unless otherwise advised by your medical practitioner.
