Alprazolam is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines (ben-zoe-dye-AZE-eh-peens). It works by slowing down the movement of chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced. This results in a reduction in nervous tension (anxiety).
Alprazolam is used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression.
Alprazolam may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
Do not use this medication if you are allergic to alprazolam or to other benzodiazepines, such as chlordiazepoxide (Librium), clorazepate (Tranxene), diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan), or oxazepam (Serax). This medication can cause birth defects in an unborn baby. Do not use alprazolam if you are pregnant.
Before taking alprazolam, tell your doctor if you have any breathing problems, glaucoma, kidney or liver disease, or a history of depression, suicidal thoughts, or addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Do not drink alcohol while taking alprazolam. This medication can increase the effects of alcohol.
This medication may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Alprazolam should never be shared with another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it.
It is dangerous to try and purchase alprazolam on the Internet or from vendors outside of the United States. Medications distributed from Internet sales may contain dangerous ingredients, or may not be distributed by a licensed pharmacy. Samples of alprazolam purchased on the Internet have been found to contain haloperidol (Haldol), a potent antipsychotic drug with dangerous side effects. For more information, contact the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or visit www.fda.gov/buyonlineguide
Do not use this medication if you have:
if you are also taking itraconazole (Sporanox) or ketoconazole (Nizoral); or
if you are allergic to alprazolam or to other benzodiazepines, such as chlordiazepoxide (Librium), clorazepate (Tranxene), diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan), or oxazepam (Serax).
Before taking alprazolam, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:
asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), or other breathing problems;
kidney or liver disease (especially alcoholic liver disease);
a history of depression or suicidal thoughts or behavior; or
a history of drug or alcohol addiction.
If you have any of these conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take alprazolam.
FDA pregnancy category D. Alprazolam can cause birth defects in an unborn baby. Do not use alprazolam without your doctor's consent if you are pregnant. Tell your doctor if you become pregnant during treatment. Use an effective form of birth control while you are using this medication. Alprazolam can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. The sedative effects of this medication may last longer in older adults. Accidental falls are common in elderly patients who take benzodiazepines. Use caution to avoid falling or accidental injury while you are taking alprazolam. Do not give this medication to anyone under 18 years old.
Alprazolam Extended-Release Tablets has been shown to cause harm to the human fetus. If you plan on becoming pregnant, discuss with your doctor the benefits and risks of using Alprazolam Extended-Release Tablets during pregnancy. Alprazolam Extended-Release Tablets are excreted in breast milk. Do not breast-feed while taking Alprazolam Extended-Release Tablets.
Alprazolam has been assigned to pregnancy category D by the FDA. An increased risk of congenital malformations in humans has been suggested with use of other benzodiazepines, although small studies have not implicated alprazolam. Withdrawal symptoms have been described in neonates whose mothers took alprazolam during pregnancy. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Alprazolam use is considered contraindicated during pregnancy.
Chronic administration of another benzodiazepine, diazepam, to nursing mothers has been reported to cause their infants to become lethargic and lose weight.
Alprazolam is probably excreted into human milk in small amounts. Withdrawal symptoms have been described in nursing infants whose mothers have withdrawn from alprazolam. The manufacturer recommends that, as a general rule, nursing should not be undertaken by mothers who must use alprazolam.

Kyy+string of random letters,
Alprazolam is in fact the best long term medication for use in acute panic attack.
However, the anticonvulsant and anti epileptic drug CLONAZEPAM (Rivotril, Clonotril, Epizep etc) CAN be used long term as a prophylactic not only for epileptic seizure but also for panic disorder. I have been taking 2mg tds now for eight years and I have had only one bout of seizures and one or two panic episodes since then, previously having suffered at least two or three times weekly. Alprazolam (Xanax is made by Pfizer and Upjohn, not Safe Pharma) is superb in 2 or 3mg dose as rapid acute relief, but clonazepam (off label) is the drug which actively prevents the issue from occurring. After 8 years there is no sedative effect (disappears in a few weeks) but remains completely effective at the prophylaxis. So using the two drugs at the correct dosage, time and frequency is indeed a good medical solution. Do not forget that CBT and other forms of therapy are equally important especially in identifying triggers for attacks.
Onax may not be as good as Ksalol or Xanax but is very good, and Rivotril & the Auden McKenzie generic are by far the best makes of clonazepam. Medipk's Rivotril is some of the best priced I have seen. I see Onax cheaper but the cost here is not many pennies more and represents great value.

I would first like to start by saying Medipk is by far one of the best online pharmacies that i have personally dealt with. Although I was confused by the Safe Pharma 30 Bar in the title of the 2mg Xanax(Alprazolam) thinking that by selecting quanity 1 was a bottle of 30 Xanax 2mg(Alprazolam) for $1.15. When actually that is the price per 2mg Xanax(Alprazolam) I placed my order online March 24th Sunday evening, I proceeded to get the money order 2 days later and sent payment with reference number to Medipk. I received a prompt response from Medipk in regard to my order being delivered i did have to wait for a tracking number almost a week and when i finally did get the tracking number the website to actually track the order was not functioning properly i was a little skeptical. I gave it a few more days and checked again the website was functioning properly but still not able to track the order it stated that it was in pakistan as of March 30th. 1 day later im sitting in my living room on my day off and I get a knock on my front door, not having many visitors especially at this time when im usually at work i was surprised. There my package was, smaller than i had expected i signed and opened right away to realize the 8 quantity that i had ordered was not 8 bottles but merely 8 2mg Xanax(Alprazolam) I will be doing business with Medipk in the future and i do recommend them to anyone who is looking for quality products in a timely manner.. Thanks Medipk

Hi OliviaI’d like to give some solid advice to you about panic acttaks, especially as you seem to have a trigger point which is the job interviews. There are many dead ends you can go down tryin to deal with this problem. I have a history of them and now I have dealt with them.When a person has a panic attack they are frozen in fear. This is not cowardice. Panic acttaks become a private hidden secret inner prison that destroys a person’s life and self-esteem. A person tries so hard to hide it even from him/herself. Panic acttaks come on like a heart attack without a warning. It is a very similar feeling and hard to detect which makes it even scarier. The chest tightens, there is no way to handle the fear factor, the feeling that is paralyzing and comes from out of nowhere. Physical discomfort like a rapid heartbeat, sweating, trembling, hot flashes and trouble swallowing regularly accompany the acttaks. Panic acttaks usually peak within ten minutes but can last 30 minutes. Sometimes panic acttaks can last as long as a day. Many feel very tired and worn out after the attack subsides.Learning how to stop panic acttaks is a priority for the majority of those who have ever experienced them. This is because panic acttaks are emotionally, mentally and physically draining. Some have gone so far as to describe panic acttaks as emotional nightmares.Although a doctor is a good port of call first in case there is some health-cause, medications do not always alleviate the panic acttaks, especially long term, and those prescribed with anti-psychotic medication are on the road to further problems resulting from the consistent use of chemicals that eventually have a permanent negative effect on the brain.I am not a doctor or a professional person, but I am a person that lived with panic acttaks and has overcome them. I’ve had to read information and misinformation from sources that proscribe to know about panic acttaks but they don’t. People give so many varied points of view on how one should deal with them. Persons that have panic acttaks not only have to deal with the panic acttaks, they have to deal with people who have a lack of understanding and arguments at the same time. Sometimes that even includes doctors!There are now simple techniques you can learn to help you stop panic acttaks quickly and easily and eventually cure panic acttaks completely. These techniques have been tested and proven through research and actual application to stop panic attack quickly and effectively.The deep breathing technique is one of them and is also called diaphragmatic breathing and is a very important technique to learn if you what to quickly know of how to stop a panic attack. The challenge now is when you are experiencing anxiety, focusing on proper deep breathing can be very difficult task. The deep breathing technique requires you to breathe directly from your diaphragm and is the type of deep breathing you do during meditation. This technique is simple and anyone can practice it when you begin to feel the symptoms of panic attack.I’ve included a link if anybody wants to really get to know more about these techniques and how to stop the panic acttaks completely and for good. I’ve been there so I wish you and all those on the search the best, and I offer lots of optimism because this affliction can be overcome. Good Luck!
