Tranquilizers are the most effective drugs for treating panic disorders and neuroses
Currently, there is a boom in various psychological methods for the treatment of human mental illness, which is called “psychotherapy”. At the same time, not every sick person will turn to a therapist for such help.
Many patients prefer drug therapy as the fastest way to stop the symptoms of psychopathology. It is easy to understand them: the psychic symptoms are frightened by their suddenness, spontaneity, impossibility to control, inexplicability, the absence of visible causes, lack of understanding of relatives, absence of organic pathology, which is capable of “explaining” the presence of a symptom in a healthy organism.
Tranquilizers are often prescribed for panic disorders and neuroses. These synthetic drugs stop anxiety, which is very helpful to the patient!
Effects of Xanax (Alprazolam) on the human body
Xanax (active substance is Alprazolam) is a vivid representative of anti-anxiety (anxiolytic) drugs. It is the representative of a new generation of benzodiazepine derivatives containing an additional triazole ring.
