In brief: Xanax (alprazolam)

Xanax (alprazolam) produces tolerance -- you gradually need higher doses for the same effect.
Also, when your xanax (alprazolam) level decreases overnight, you can get inter-dose withdrawal symptoms (like shakiness & heart racing). Please discuss this with your doctors -- these issues make xanax (alprazolam) not a good long-term option for anxiety, even though it's potent. There are excellent talk therapies plus other meds.
