🧠 Don’t Use Xanax (Alprazolam) Until You Watch This Video
Today I want to quickly discuss Xanax – one of the most highly prescribed and used drugs in the world, for many, many years. In fact, one that I used myself in the past… and I’ll share that story with you in a minute.
Xanax, which is the trade name for the drug, Alprazolam [al-pra-zuh-lam], is generally prescribed for anxiety and panic disorder. It’s also used for depression and pain as well. And lots of people use it for sleep.
It works by calming down your nervous system and slowing things down, helping you feel calmer and more relaxed.
It’s a benzodiazepine [ben-zow-die-asuh-peen] medication. Similar to Valium (Diazepam), Ativan (Lorazepam) and about 15 similar types of drugs.
These drugs all work similarly. Some of the main differences between them is how quickly they are in and out of your system, based on the half-life.
Why Do People Use Xanax
Why do so many people use Xanax and similar “benzo” drugs? And the statistics are showing that women use them more than men and these days, people are using them at an earlier age.
So, how do they work? What are the benefits and side-effects?
And finally, what about natural alternatives – eating specific foods, exercise, herbs, vitamins, meditation and so forth?
I’ll quickly go over each of these, so let’s get started
How Xanax Works
As stated earlier, Xanax and similar benzo drugs work to help you relax. They’re used by people who have anxiety, panic attacks, under extra stress or worry and also for sleep and pain.
When someone takes Xanax or other benzos, they stimulate the inhibiting neurotransmitter responsible for how calm or relaxed we feel, which is called GABA.
GABA is meant to be our natural tranquilizer, but if you have anxiety or panic disorders, Xanax works by binding to these receptors and stimulating its production.
Essentially, Xanax works by slowing brain activity, which results in a calm, relaxed effect for the user.
So let’s talk about the negatives. These type of drugs are “downers” and have the usual side effects of feeling tired and drowsy.
However, they have lots of other negative problems that people don’t usually know about, such as
Sleep problems and insomnia. Which makes no sense, since you’d think you’re tired all the time and you could fall asleep at night, but after a few weeks, the opposite happens because of neurological changes
Feeling unmotivated and depressed – Xanax and similar drugs are in fact, a “depressant” The irony is that some doctors prescribe Xanax to people who have depression, ultimately making things much worse.
Loss of sex drive for women and men, plus impotence and erectile problems for men
Muscle loss and fat gain.
Memory loss and a 50% increased risk for Dementia – yup, you’re killing your brain with these drugs
Dying prematurely by 400% – This is the scariest of all, 4x higher risk of dying early and getting certain cancers.
