What is Xanax?
Xanax is a medication prescribed to patients with anxiety and panic disorder, and it is the brand name for Alprazolam. It is a part of a set of drugs called benzodiazepine, which works on the brain to create a calming and pacifying effect.
Xanax comes in various dosage strengths differentiated with colours like white, green, blue and pink. Xanax is the most commonly stipulated 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.
What is a Blue Xanax bar?
A blue Xanax bar is a 2mg strength bar with 2 mg active Alprazolam prescribed to patients with anxiety and panic attacks. It has the inscription of “B707” on one side of the bar, making it easy to identify the fake and real pills. Your doctor will adjust the dosage prescribed to you with time to figure out the one that benefits you best.
You can break parts of the bar 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 3 mg active Alprazolam, so it has an increased onset of effects compared to other 0.25mg or 1mg doses.
A blue Xanax is taken orally, starts working within an hour, and reaches its peak concentration in two hours. Because of its side effects of drowsiness and dizziness, many people misuse and abuse Xanax for the impact of euphoria.
How does Blue Xanax Bar work?
Blue Xanax is the 2mg strength dose of Xanax and is used similarly. 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.

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. If you think the dosage prescribed to you isn’t working, it is advised to not increase it on your own for your benefit.
Xanax can be addictive and habit-forming, especially if you have previously misused or abused a substance. It is advised that you regularly keep checking on your dosage intake to avoid addiction or overdose.
