Xanax Addiction in Boca Raton

Generally used to treat anxiety, Xanax is considered habit forming by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Due to the serious consequences during withdrawal from the drug, attempting to detox from Xanax should be done in detox treatment center, preferably inpatient.
When Xanax is prescribed, it is recommended for short term or intermittent use, although some patients use it on a daily basis. Self administering and increasing the intake without medical advice is not a good idea. Due to it taking more than 24 hours to clear the drug from your system, tolerance begins to build up over time. As a result Xanax addiction, in Delray Beach as well as other areas of the world, is a growing problem.
Similar to other addictive substances, once the drug level falls below a certain threshold, symptoms appear. This results in the user taking another dose in an attempt to return to so called normal. In some cases, a person for whom Xanax was not prescribed will take the drug with the intention of feeling relaxed. This becomes increasingly more dangerous, not only because they are taking a medication that was not prescribed to them in the first place, but also because combined with alcohol or other opiates, the user will experience an intense high. There have been deaths reported in cases where Benzodiapines (the family in which Xanax belongs) combined with alcohol led to respiratory failure.
The American Academy of Family Physicians reports that rarely is Xanax the sole drug of abuse when obtained outside of a physician’s care. It has been estimated that as many as 40% of alcoholics have abused Xanax in an attempt to self treat alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
