What is Xanax?

Xanax is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer. Xanax is a federally controlled substance (C-IV) because it is liable to drug abuse and may lead to dependence. It is classed as a benzodiazepine, the same family that includes diazepam, clonazepam, and lorazepam, and is used for:

  • Acute treatment of generalized anxiety disorder in adults
  • Treatment of panic disorder (panic attacks) with or without agoraphobia in adults

Benzodiazepines, including Xanax, expose users to risks of abuse, misuse, and addiction, which can lead to physical dependence, overdose, or death. Do not stop using Xanax without discussing it with your doctor. You may have life-threatening withdrawal symptoms if you stop using Xanax suddenly after long-term use.

What doses of Xanax are available?

Xanax is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, 1 mg, and 2 mg.

Please read the medication guide and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
