Popular Anti-Anxiety Drug in America
In America, the nineties was the decade of Prozac, all in depression and hollow eyes, and this is the era of Xanax; all are edgy, jumpy, and short of breath. Anxiety is a severe medical problem. It often leads to depression, and eventually, they both get tangled up. Anxiety disorder is excessive or unrealistic anxiety and worries, for more than six months. Xanax is the most reliable medication for the treatment of anxiety disorder.
Alprazolam, the active ingredient of Xanax pills, was approved for medical use in 1981 in America. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) categorized alprazolam under the Schedule IV controlled substance. It is available both as a generic medication and under the brand name Xanax. According to a survey, Xanax was the 19th most prescribed medication in America in the year 2016, with more than 27 million prescriptions in that year only.
The anxiety associated with depression is highly responsive to Xanax. The effectiveness of Xanax for the treatment of anxiety can be as long as four months.
In clinical trials conducted in America, Xanax was better than Placebo in treating the symptoms of anxiety in patients with an anxiety disorder or anxiety with depression. 59% of the Xanax users in America reported that it is the best medication for relief from an anxiety disorder.
The common side effects of Xanax are sometimes too mild to notice. The effectiveness of Xanax is far better than Zoloft and Buspirone.
Anxiety can be life-threatening and paralyzing for those who suffer it acutely. Xanax suppresses the output of neurotransmitters in the brain, thus, reducing the anxiety. The prescriptions of Xanax have a rise of more than 23 percent in 2006, nearly 46 million a year, in the U.S.A. Xanax was the most prescribed psych pharmaceutical drug and, overall, the 11th most prescribed drug in the U.S.A. in 2010.
Stephen Stahl, the chairman of the Neuroscience Education Institute in California, and a celebrated psychiatrist of America, says, “Benzos (Xanax) works well. They are cheap. Their effectiveness on anxiety is profound.”

Other anxiety medications like Prozac and Celexa also works on anxiety and depression, but they take almost two to three weeks to kick in. The growing number of Americans are trusting Xanax to get relief from their anxiety-related issues.
