Till now we learned that each Xanax 1 mg tablet contains Alprazolam. And Alprazolam belongs to the family of benzodiazepines. Alprazolam and other benzodiazepine drugs are known to act by enhancing the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) present in the brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that reduces excitability in the brain, slowing and calming it down by inhibiting certain brain activities.
Short-Term Effects of Xanax 1 mg
After using Xanax 1 mg medicine, an individual can feel the short-term effects causing them to feel completely calm, euphoric, and free from worry. This Alprazolam drug works for individuals suffering from anxiety and panic disorders as it begins to relieve their anxious feelings and soothe their minds soon after taking the medication.
Compared to other similar benzodiazepine drugs, Xanax (alprazolam) is famously known for its quick-relief action. Its effects may be felt within 30 minutes by an individual and can last for up to 6 hours. However, it should be taken responsibly. If a large dose is taken, the strong depressant effects may cause amnesia or memory loss.

Xanax dosage for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
Mental health professionals diagnose generalized anxiety disorder when an individual experiences excessive worry about a range of issues daily. The individual must be suffering for more than six months to be diagnosed as positive. More specific anxiety issues also called phobias, and short-term anxiety in adults are usually not treated with Xanax medication.
- The standard dose for GAD treatment is 0.25 mg to 0.5 mg Xanax to be taken orally 3 times a day.
- The maximum daily dose of Xanax for GAD should not exceed 4 mg.
Xanax dosage for panic disorder
Individuals suffering from panic disorder with or without the presence of agoraphobia, experience frequent and uncontrollable panic attacks that are very sudden. To manage this most healthcare professionals start the treatment with a lower dose of Xanax and steadily increase the dose until panic attacks are under control.
While no maximum dose of Xanax has been defined particularly for panic disorder, some patients may require more than 4 mg of Xanax a day to manage panic attacks. Even higher doses, up to 10 mg per day have been used in certain cases.
- The standard dosage of Xanax required to suppress symptoms of panic disorder is 0.5 mg to 3 mg. This dose must be taken orally 3 times per day.
How Long Should Xanax 1 mg be Used?
Xanax 1 mg tablets are only indicated for the short term. Alprazolam is a Schedule IV controlled substance, meaning it has the potential for drug abuse, dependence, and withdrawal regardless of its medicinal value. For this reason, Xanax is used to treat generalized anxiety disorder for 4 months or less.
Yet it is undetermined how long people with the panic disorder need to continue with Xanax 1 mg medication, but the duration usually does not last any longer than 10 weeks.
How Long Can Xanax Stay in the System?
Xanax 1 mg tablet has a half-life of 11 hours in healthy individuals. The Alprazolam drug is metabolized by the liver. Cells in the liver change Alprazolam into different metabolites. The half-life of Xanax can stretch out longer in certain cases. It can raise up to 16 hours for geriatric patients, 65 hours for people with liver dysfunctions, and 40 hours for people with excessive weight.
Some drugs, such as the antifungals ketoconazole and itraconazole, affect the liver’s ability to break down Alprazolam. This may cause it to stay in an individual’s system for a longer time at higher concentrations.
Although Xanax’s effects wear off pretty quickly, it still can be detected for about 4 days in various samples. Depending on the amount of Xanax 1 mg medication taken, blood tests can detect alprazolam for up to 1 to 6 days and urine tests for up to a week after taking the last dose.
