If you suffer from chronic anxiety or depression, perhaps a Xanax prescription would be helpful. Today, millions of people live with moderate to severe anxiety. Anxiety consists of persistent or relentless worrying. For many, sleeping or relaxing is impossible. Fortunately, there is a safe solution. Xanax prescriptions are available from physicians across the country.
Xanax prescriptions are highly effective for regulating mood. Those suffering from anxiety and depression have an imbalance of certain brain chemicals that trigger negative moods. Some people experience symptoms during specific times of the year. For example, seasonal depression often affects people during the winter months (November to April). Once spring arrives, anxiety and depression normalizes. On the other hand, if you experience ongoing, year-round depression, ask your doctor about a Xanax prescription.
While Xanax prescriptions improve moods and regulate stress levels, you may experience side effects while taking this medication. The most common side effect associated with anti-depressants is sexual dysfunction. Sexual dysfunction refers to low libido, low sex drive, etc. This condition affects both males and females. Women may be unable to feel aroused. Additionally, males may be unable to achieve an erection. In some cases, sexual desires return. Alternatively, physicians may prescribe an additional drug to help enhance sexual function.
Other side effects that may accompany Xanax include drowsiness, headaches, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, dry mouth, and difficulty falling asleep. Again, side effects usually lessen after a while. However, if side effects begin to interfere with daily functions, consult your physician. In some cases, he or she may prescribe a lower dosage. If taking a Xanax prescription, do not stop use of the medication without consulting a doctor. Occasionally, patients must gradually wean themselves off anti-depressants. Quitting cold turkey may result in severe mood swings or depression. Furthermore, do not combine Xanax with other anti-depressant or anti-anxiety medications.
