Can You Shoot Xanax?
Xanax is a prescription, brand-name drug with the generic name alprazolam. It belongs to a larger class of prescription drugs called benzodiazepines or benzos. Benzos are intended to treat anxiety disorders as well as panic disorders, and they’re among the most commonly prescribed class of drugs in the U.S. Xanax is believed to work by increasing the amount of GABA available in the brain. GABA is a calming neurotransmitter, and individuals with anxiety disorders often have less GABA than what’s considered normal. This deficiency causes the activity in their brain to be over-excited. Xanax helps calm that. Xanax is considered a depressant for the central nervous system.
