What is Xanax?
Xanax is a medicine prescribed to patients with anxiety and panic disorder, and it is the brand name for Alprazolam. It is also known as benzodiazepine, which works on the brain to create a calming and soothing effect.
As Xanax is the most commonly prescribed medication for anxiety disorders, it is readily available to the commoner, increasing the risk of substance misuse or abuse, leading to addiction and, worst cases, even death. Xanax comes in various dosage strengths differentiated with colors like white, green, blue and pink.
What is a Blue Xanax bar?
A blue Xanax bar is a 2mg strength bar containing 2mg active medication prescribed to patients with anxiety and panic attack onsets. It has the inscription of “B707” on one side, making it easy to identify the fake and real pills. Your physician will change the dosage prescribed to you with time to find the one that suits you best.
A blue Xanax is taken orally, starts working within an hour, and peaks in two hours. Because of its side effects of dizziness and drowsiness, many humans misuse and abuse Blue Xanax for the impact of euphoria.
You can break the Blue Xanax Bar parts and use it in smaller doses if prescribed a lower dose. A blue Xanax bar only comes after a white Xanax bar with a maximum amount of 3mg, so it has a higher onset of effects than other 0.25mg or 1mg doses.
Uses of Blue Xanax Bars
Blue Xanax is the 2mg strength dose of Xanax used like all other Xanax doses. Xanax is a benzodiazepine which enhances the effects of a neurotransmitter called GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric Acid), which lessens the capacity of the nerve cells to communicate with each other.
Lower levels of GABA indicate anxiety, chronic pain and epilepsy. With benzodiazepine increasing the effects of GABA produces a calming and relaxing effect and lowers the excited state of mind making it easier to handle anxiety and panic attacks.
Blue Xanax bar is of 2 mg strength and is considered a high dose medicine. If you have been prescribed a lower dosage, you can easily break the pill into portions and use it as needed. Blue Xanax bar is specified to be taken orally and can be had with or without food as directed by your physician.
A Blue Xanax Bar, because of its high dosage strength, is also likely to stay in your system for a more prolonged period. However, that depends on certain factors like diet, liver and kidney function and age.
Xanax is a level IV controlled substance, meaning it is reasonably possible to be misused or abused. It is essential to use the medication in moderation.
The side effects of consuming Blue Xanax Bars
Xanax is not exactly a central nervous system depressant, but it does lessen the anxiety levels produced by the body. It provides a calming effect that helps with the symptoms of agitation and a state of excitation produced in the body by the central nervous system.
The common side effects of Blue Xanax are-
7-Loss of appetite
8-Nausea and vomiting
These symptoms should tone down after a few days as the body adapts to Xanax. If these symptoms continue for an extended period or worsen with time, it would be best to inform your prescribing physician. You may develop a tolerance or dependence on Blue Xanax Bars if you have been using them for a long time. If you think the dosage given to you isn’t having proper effects, it is advised to not increase it on your own.
Addiction to Blue Xanax
Xanax is a level IV controlled substance with a moderate to a high possibility of misuse and abuse. Addiction begins with misuse, which has various reasons like increasing your dose on your own or even withdrawal caused after stopping the medicine without proper consultation of the physician.
If you think that the dosage prescribed isn’t working for you, you should not increase your dose on your own. Instead, it is recommended that you inform your doctor, who will increase or decrease your dosage based on the medical condition and response to treatment.
If you stop using your Blue Xanax Bars suddenly, it will cause you to face withdrawal symptoms, especially if you have been having Blue Xanax for an extended period or in high doses. The withdrawal symptoms last for well over a year.
If you notice symptoms like
-Hypersensitivity to light
-Rebound anxiety and panic attacks, etc.
It will help if you inform your prescribing physician instead of using Xanax on your own or by your previous prescription.
