Xanax, a brand name for the drug alprazolam, is a benzodiazepine medication primarily prescribed to manage anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and sometimes insomnia. Xanax tablets typically come in various strengths, including 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, 1 mg, and 2 mg, and are often characterized by their distinctive shape and color. These pills are typically small, oval or rectangular, and may be scored for easier splitting. Xanax is known for its calming effects, which can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety and promote relaxation. However, it's important to use Xanax cautiously and as prescribed due to its potential for dependence and abuse.
