Linton Drug Rehab: Xanax Addiction
Xanax is a drug commonly prescribed by physicians to treat individuals who have anxiety disorders. One of the dangers associated with Xanax use is that it is possible to become addicted to it. An addiction may occur slowly or quickly and is often preceded by the development of a tolerance. Suddenly, larger doses are required in order for the medication to work like it once did.
If you or someone you know has been prescribed Xanax, be on the lookout for symptoms which might suggest that she or he is becoming dependent on the drug. Common signs of Xanax addiction include:
- A high tolerance to the drug
- Quickly going through ones prescription
- Multiple prescriptions from different doctors for the same drug
- Being secretive about ones medication (ie when it is taken and why)
