Why is Xanax potentially dangerous medication?

Updated: Mar 27

Why is Xanax potentially dangerous medication? Dr Starovic discusses the potential dangers associated with taking Xanax, highlighting three main concerns. Firstly, Xanax has a very short half-life, necessitating multiple doses per day, which increases its addictive potential. Secondly, long-term or high-dose usage leads to physiological dependency, making it dangerous to suddenly stop the medication without experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Lastly, the withdrawal process from Xanax can be not only uncomfortable but also life-threatening, occasionally requiring hospital admission for safety. Despite these risks, the video acknowledges Xanax's effectiveness in certain treatments, emphasizing the importance of careful, supervised use and the consideration of safer alternatives first.
