Xanax (Alprazolam) is also a fast-acting benzodiazepine. It affects neurotransmitters the same way Klonopin does. Xanax also reduces anxiety and causes sleepiness. Xanax will require more regular dosing. Some like this because they can better control how the side effects will affect them, and when.
Xanax for anxiety allows a person to take more doses throughout the day. It helps with symptoms of panic attacks also, alleviating them quickly.
While Klonopin for anxiety is used specifically for panic disorders, it can also control seizures. It may be used for someone withdrawing from alcohol to prevent delirium tremens.
Both of the drugs are similar in that they can cause dependence which can lead to benzodiazepine addiction. They can both be abused and when taken in higher doses for a long time, the withdrawal can be intense.
Alprazolam is the active ingredient in Xanax and works as an agonist on certain brain receptors that are responsible for sleep. Xanax binds to the GABA receptors so they work at inhibiting neurotransmitters that can ultimately cause stress.
Xanax helps to calm a person down so they’re able to sleep. The theory for these drugs within the medical world is patients just need a break from their anxiety. This allows them to put their life back together while they are in a calm state of mind.
If they have a few weeks to feel a sense of calm, they can begin to manage things better. Gaining control of their life will prevent overwhelming anxiety. This is the hope when taking anti-anxiety pills. Xanax can be used for a longer period of time to treat panic attacks.
