Alprazolam is a member of the benzodiazepine class of drugs. Prescribed under the brand name Xanax, it is a medication used to treat anxiety disorders and other conditions. 

Introduced as a safer alternative to barbiturates, benzodiazepines can create peaceful, euphoric feelings when used. It’s why alprazolam is often abused, particularly by teens as it can be a relatively easy drug to access. Alprazolam is also very addictive, and tolerance to the drug’s effects can build up quickly. 

There’s an additional risk: counterfeit alprazolam bought on the street can be tainted with harmful substances like fentanyl. This can be a potentially fatal side effect of alprazolam abuse. Alprazolam can also be toxic when combined with other drugs. 

Detoxing from alprazolam can be very complex and potentially dangerous. Professional, clinical detox is a must when recovering from alprazolam abuse.
