alprazolam

medical indication and effects

Alprazolam which is on the market since 1981, is a prescription drug of the benzodiazepine class. It is a depressant of the neurological system, which results in a tranquilizing as well in an anxiolytic effect. That's why it is prescribed primarily for anti anxiety purposes rather than for insomnia. It is metabolized and eliminated quicker than other benzodiazepines due its half-life is 12 to 15 hours. So it is in the middle between Lorazepam (6 hours of half-time) and Diazepam (24 hours of half-time).
The following side effects are ordered by descending occurrence.
  • drowsiness
  • dizziness
  • light-headedness
  • blurred vision
