Xanax® is a prescription medication that contains the drug alprazolam. Doctors prescribe Xanax® to treat a variety of panic and anxiety disorders. Xanax® alters brain activity to reduce excitement. Xanax® is a benzodiazapene, and is a federally-controlled substance with the potential for abuse. Patients who take large doses of Xanax® or take it for a period longer than a few days may become physically and psychologically dependent on the drug.
Consumers who have trouble affording Xanax® may be able to benefit from Xanax® patient assistance programs. Offered by drug manufacturer Pfizer as well as other sources, programs generally require patients to have no prescription drug insurance.
