Xanax is a benzodiazepine and produces distinct symptoms while detoxing from the drug. However, Xanax withdrawal can be made more comfortable under the care of trained medical and addiction professionals. Because Xanax works by quieting the brain’s activity, stopping the drug means a person may develop insomnia or feel anxious while detoxing. While uncomfortable, the symptoms can all be managed under doctors’ and staff’s care at an inpatient Xanax detox facility.
Symptoms of Xanax Withdrawal
Symptoms of withdrawal can vary depending on an individual’s dosage and how long they used Xanax. One of the more difficult side effects of stopping Xanax is the “rebounding” of pre-Xanax conditions. For example, individuals who initially took Xanax to combat anxiety and insomnia may experience these disorders while withdrawing from the drug.
