A growing number of people are abusing Xanax in the UK to help them relax, relieve stress, reduce inhibitions and self-medicate their anxiety.
Xanax is highly addictive and people misusing the drug can find that they need to take more of the substance at more regular intervals once they build up a tolerance, leading to physical and psychological dependency.
In the UK, Xanax is not available through the NHS but it can be obtained through a private prescription.
I will further explore the issue of Xanax and overprescribing in my presentation for iCAAD, looking at the signs, symptoms and treatment for Xanax addiction.
1. To explore the indications for the use of Xanax.
