Benzodiazepine: Xanax (alprazolam) is a benzodiazepine that has a fairly short half-life. This can increase the risk of addiction to the medication. There are other benzodiazepines with longer half-lives. I like those better, if I have to use a benzodiazepine with a patient. There are risks with this medication that includes addiction , dependence, some have some constipation, over-sedation, and respiratory suppression.
