Happy Hour at the Xanny Bar –
June 28, 2019 – …yet Xanax (known by its generic name alprazolam) often will differentiate itself by having a shorter half-life, meaning that it rids itself from the body’s system a bit quicker. Xanax usually stays in one’s bodily system for about 12-15 hours at a time. In addition, Xanax shows quick symptom relief – typically within one or two hours after you’ve ingested it.
Like other benzodiazepines (benzos), Xanax is used to treat anxiety and panic attacks since it enhances the effects of GABA, a chemical found in the brain that creates a calming effect over someone. Xanax can be a very addictive prescription drug not only because of the chemical reaction it affects in one’s brain, but because it creates a very calming feeling that those who suffer from anxiety enjoy, such as startup tech workers in Silicon Valley and elsewhere around the world who work very long hours and are constantly under high stress due to their positions, workloads, and other factors affecting their performance. This often leads to these tech workers abusing Xanax and it often leads them down a road to no good.
