Human psychology has already accepted the co-existence of good and evil right from the moment Adam and Eve ate the apple of knowledge. There is happiness with sorrow, pleasure with pain, truth with lie, beauty with ugliness and so forth. You have seen the happy moments of your life as well as the moments of sorrow. Sometimes the memory and fear of the bad time keeps on haunting you and you are so much overwhelmed that you forget to smile. Are you depressed and full of anxiety all the time? Are you in a situation which can be called a disorder?
Do not underestimate your depression and anxiety, they are real life enemies and you should never underestimate your enemies. Let me tell you the symptoms of anxiety disorder so that you can compare and understand your condition. There are certain physical symptoms of anxiety disorder, e.g. rapid or irregular heartbeat, stomach problems like gnawing feeling, nausea, “butterflies in the stomach” diarrhea, irritated bowel syndrome, sweating, or feeling cold and clammy headaches, lightheadedness or dizziness, body tension or aches, fatigue or shortness of breath shaking, trembling or twitching difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, hot flashes or chills, chest pain, rubbery legs, tingling in fingers or toes. At the same time there are some emotional symptoms as well like a general sense of apprehension and dread, nervousness, jumpiness, irritation, fearfulness or terror, isolation from others, feeling incredibly self-conscious and insecure, and fear that you are dying or going crazy strong desire to escape.
If you have the following symptoms prevalent, you must take care of yourself and seek medical help. There are treatment available combining medications as well as therapies for anxiety disorder. Benzodiazepine is the most successful medication for anxiety disorder and Xanax, a type of Benzodiazepine is one of the most popular medicines for this purpose. Blue Xanax is also effective in the treatment of activity depression and panic attacks. At the same time it is useful in treating irritable bowel syndrome and anxiety due to a neurosis. Xanax may help the symptoms of PMS and also used to relieve anxiety, nervousness, and tension associated with anxiety disorders, agoraphobia, essential tremor, fibromyalgia (low dosage), and ringing ears.
But, as I said earlier, we must accept that there are two sides of every aspect or a thing, one is good, and one is bad. Human being has not even spared Xanax, and used it as an intoxicating drug, rather abused it. As Xanax affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety, it slows down the brain functioning causing a drowsy feeling for the person. It is a Central Nervous System (CNS) ‘calmer’ and addiction happens when it is used for a long term, not more than eight months. It is this tolerance that compels the user of xanax to take more and more pills to feel the same effect. As the body of the user becomes more and more habituated, the ‘calming effect’ of Xanax in the body demands more of dosages of generic Xanax to get the desired level. The result, as you can very well understand, is addiction. Your daily dose of 2 pills of 25mg each increase to dosages of 4 pills or more a day. Gradually, a person thinks of taking 5,10,20,40 or even 80 pills on a given day to remain ‘normal’. This is the condition when he is actually addicted to Xanax.
In this situation, Xanax should not be stopped abruptly, I must tell you, and you should not stop taking xanax abruptly at any time. That may cause severe withdrawal syndrome. In normal situation the doctor will gradually decrease the dosage and when a person is addicted to Xanax, psychotherapy along with medication is required. The best part is, unlike other anti-anxiety and antidepressants, withdrawing from xanax is much easy and never life threatening. The main line to remember is, never forget to consult a doctor before taking Xanax and follow doctor’s advice till the time you are completely recovered from anxiety disorder. Trust me, you can live a better life, you deserve it!
