When you yourself have anxiety not feel just like everything is moving faster? Xanax is a benzodiazepine, and like all benzodiazepines, has action as a central nervous system (CNS) depressant. Benzodiazepines increase the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutryic acid (GABA) in the brain to illicit a calming, sedative effect. But alprazolam can cause drowsiness and have an impact on your ability to react to situations. For these reasons, you should not combine alprazolam with alcoholic beverages, other CNS depressant medications like narcotic painkillers, or driving. Your inability to respond quickly to an unexpected situation can lead to a vehicle accident. Plus, as reported in a 2017 research released in BMJ, the combo of sedatives like Xanax and narcotic pain killers can be fatal anticipated to suppressed deep breathing.
