How to take Xanax for panic attacks?
About 18% of people in the USA have sudden attacks of fear, anxiety and concern. Fear and panic usually occur groundlessly, sometimes under the action of some events. These may be loud sound, scream, and sometimes silence.
A person may have anxiety for a long time or face anxiety from time to time but a panic attack happens at the most inappropriate moment. Typical symptoms of panic attack are:
- Increase of decrease of the blood pressure
- High sweating
- Feeling of fever or cold
- Fatigue, nausea and faint
People take the panic attacks for heart attack or brain storm, or they think that they are at the point of death. They cannot predict where and when the attack begins again, and many people are afraid of the next attack. This state grows after several attacks and a person waits for a new attack every day and every minute.
The panic attacks may even happen in one’s sleep. They usually last for 10 to 30 minutes but some symptoms may be kept within several hours and even days.
People who often have panic attacks are incapable for work. They are not able to do potentially dangerous activity and cannot guarantee stress resistance and concentration.
For example, a person having had a panic attack in the elevator, may have a fear of elevators, and it may influence on a choice of working place and residence, place of treatment and entertainment. Life of some people becomes restricted, and so they begin to avoid common things, for example, they do not go shopping or do not drive.
Single panic attack does not require a medical intervention. But if you have had several attacks within 6 months, or they occur in 1-2 weeks, go to a doctor.
A doctor will prescribe Xanax. This product helps to control emotions and level of the brain agitation. Due to this drug, a frequency of the panic attacks is reduced, and their intensity drops. The attacks quickly pass during the proper treatment and do not occur again.
How to take Xanax for panic disorders?
To reduce the symptoms of the panic disorders, it is recommended to take Xanax every day within 3-5 months. 1 mg Xanax 3 times per day may be enough for most patients. The last pill is taken before going to bed in order to regulate sleeping and reduce a risk of attack at night.
If you are followed up by a doctor, s/he should estimate the symptoms. If a patient feels better, the dose is not changed, or is slightly reduced. If a positive course of the disease is absent, the dose is increased by 1 mg per day every month.
Besides the basic daily dose, 0,5-1,5 mg may be used during the attack. The pills acts not so quickly to arrest the attack. But it will relieve the long-term symptoms kept within several hours.
- Do not take 5-10 mg Xanax per day at It is better to start the treatment from the low doses of 1,5-2 mg per day and gradually increase the dose
- Senior people are prescribed a low dose – 0,75-1,5 mg per day
- Do not terminate the treatment. A withdrawal syndrome causes a development of new symptoms, and the attacks may become more intensive and longer
There are many other drugs that act as Xanax but they effectively inhibit the anxiety. Panic is a stronger attack of anxiety and fear, and therefore not every drug can cope with the symptoms. If you want to get 100% result, select medications that are tested and highly effective.
