Patients who suffer from panic disorders, or a sudden and extreme anxiety, can use Alprazolam to treat their anxiety. Alprazolam is a brand name form of the generic drug benzodiazepine. The drug works by balancing mental chemistry and by calming abnormal spikes of activity in the brain. 

Alprazolam ER is available in .5mg, 1mg, and 2mg tablets. The tablet should be taken once per day in the morning. Do not crush or chew an extended-release tablet. You should not take Alprazolam ER with fatty foods as this can increase chances of side effects

Alprazolam can be habit-forming. Don’t take Alprazolam more often, or in larger quantities than your doctor suggests. Do not suddenly stop taking Alprazolam. Suddenly stopping Alprazolam can lead to withdrawal symptoms like seizures, uncontrollable shaking in one part of the body, headache, blurred vision, sweating, difficulty falling or staying asleep, irritability, increased light or noise sensitivity, change in sense of smell, depression, aggression, cramps, weight loss, loss of appetite, vomiting, and tingling in the hands and feet. To avoid these symptoms, your doctor will decrease your dose gradually.
