Alprazolam (Xanax)

Alprazolam is the generic name for a drug that is often prescribed to manage panic and anxiety disorders. Other possible uses for alprazolam include depression, premenstrual syndrome, and agoraphobia. Alprazolam is also available under the brand names Xanax, Xanax XR, and Niravam. Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine drug, which reduces abnormally excited behavior in the brain. Alprazolam is available as both a tablet and a concentrated liquid solution, both taken orally. Alprazolam can be habit-forming, and should be taken only as directed by a doctor. If you suddenly stop taking alprazolam, you may experience seizures and other symptoms of withdrawal.
